Okay, here's a quick look before I head to work.
The Raven's coming along nicely...
concept drawing I did over the summer, but as most of you Hallowe'en-prop-makin'-crazies know, ideas crop up in mid-project and you go with your heart and your gut!
It simply occurred to me that his eyes might be so much more sinister if they were lit from behind, and pupil-less, so that's where I took him.
Also, I have yet to sculpt/paint the 'cere', or nose, along the top of the beak (where their nostrils, or 'nares', tend to be -- see how much we learn by doing?) so his full personality and look is certainly not apparent just yet.
But he's sure looking -- and starting to move -- like he's getting geared up for the Big Night:
P.S. It's really difficult to hold the camera with one hand and operate four channels on two radio control joysticks with the other hand. Just sayin'.
Much more work to do, busy-busy-busy! But for the moment, I'll take some quick refreshment before resuming my work.
Now wait a second -- where's the tap for the keg?!?
