Evolution of the Witch

Today I did a first draft sketch of my pastry chef witch. She's only seen for like a split second in the film 'Myrtle the Witch', so she's not very important. That's why I'm starting with her.

So this morning I did a quick pen sketch, then I re-drew her in pencil, then I added colour using watercolour paints (not Photoshop as I'm just faster sticking to my old ways), then I scanned her to include on this blog so you can take a look at how things are evolving. Click on an image to enlarge.

You can put this witch character into context by checking out yesterday's blog post (here).

I will create some more artwork for other characters and then start sculpting them and will share bits and pieces here, so don't forget to follow and find the Tall Tales Productions Facebook page as well. Thanks!

NOTE Since writing this post I have completed this witch, and you can see the finished article here.

Deadly Sweet Tooth

Having a sweet tooth can be deadly. Well, maybe not deadly but it's not great - I should know, I have to schedule a root canal filling this week. Grrrr...
But anyway, this is something I've been working on for the past 2 days... props for a scene in 'Myrtle the Witch' inside a cake & pie shop, run by a witch, naturally.

I did a sketch of some designs (below) and have been sculpting them out of clay and mixed media in one inch scale. Here are some snaps of my work space.

Stay tuned for character design of this witch and watch this scene come together as I build the set interior.

Don't miss out on Facebook page updates here!
