Just finished the Queen of Hearts. I always like to see other artists in-progress pics, so I thought I'd share mine. So here she is in Stage 1, looking more like a bowling pin than a Queen. (There are actually several steps involved before stuff comes to my table, but I didn't get pictures of those stages. You'll just have to imagine the designing, sewing, wooden base-making, and stuffing parts.)
Stage 2 is drawing.
(I started painting a little before I remembered to snap a picture.)
Step 3 is base painting, avoiding the pencil lines between colors.
Step 4 is sanding then staining.
See how the lines between colors are brown now instead of white?
Ok, so I got a little carried away at this point and skipped right to the end. (Now that I think of it, this is kind of a lame post. I'll try harder to snap pictures in between steps next time.) Anyway, here she is all done up and royal-like.
The rest of Wonderland is slowly but surely coming to life in between other projects.
Now I'm off to make 8 big dragon flag thingies for Boy Kid's drumline.
