The first few pictures are in-process shots of the costuming process. That lower lace is also embroidery floss - took me the better part of an hour to get it behaving and it was a nice stretching of my back-stitching skills.
The pages below are:
1. A quick summary of the building process.
3. The initial design/development page for the sculpture.
4. Explorations in costumes and personality.
I have one more page in mind for presentation purposes, but I am taking a small break from her to develop the surrounding characters - I've started sketching one sister and research/thumb nailing the "Beast" called Oni-san - our second prominent figure who I also hope to complete a sculpture of before CTN in November.
Of course I had intended to post yesterday evening, but I had the opportunity to attend a talk by Jon Schindehette encompassing the 10 Ways to Kill Your Career (And How to Avoid Them). It was quite good. He is a very smart, charismatic gentleman with years of experience as an Art Director and Artist. He writes the ArtOrder blog which everyone should now go look at for more inspiration and insight. : )
