Another idea from 4 years ago...

Well, my blog is now becoming a scrapbook of lost ideas. But, I received a good amount of feedback on the last post and so I thought that I'd add this other idea I had at the time I was working on the Polyphemus one. These sketches actually relate to the painting I'm currently finishing up (it will be posted soon!) in that it's from Herodotus. This is Artemisia of Halicarnassus. What I regret is not taking a photo of the model I made of the wall and rafters. Because I wanted the miniture to seem like it was 10 ft. in height I recall making the wall and ceiling dimish exagerratedly in scale so that it would hit the vanishing point it would were it larger...I even did a fresco and calculated it's necessary distortion and recopied it on the skewed model. I have no idea now if the math was all right but it actually looked really convincing through a view finder.


  1. love it! you should do this one

  2. Wow, love the shoot, the composition!
    The second image show an advanced rendering
    Is incredible the feeling of solidity

    Thanks for share!

  3. Oh wow, this is amazing. I love the first study, and the second shot shows a masterful rendering of the figure. This is definitely a winner.
