Here’s the next stages in the progression of the Moon Revisited piece.
I’ve taken the concept out the sketch book on to A3 smooth cartridge paper, its in HB pencil and I’m inking with Unipin 0.3 and 0.1 pigment fine line pens.
Once inked I rub out any of the very heavy pencil lines and scan into Photoshop.
Its scanned at a very high resolution so when I scale it down to it will retain as much fine detail as possible.
From here I start the clean, copy and readjustment/refinement process.
This Piece has been languishing in the digital equivalent of a dusty draw for about year after the client.. ahem..’changed their mind’ I think that’s the polite way of putting it.
So, I’ve dug her out and given her a bit of a re-model and a re-colour with something of a Roger Dean inspired pallet.
I think she deserves to see the light of day after everything she went through.
Adrian Carter Sheffield based audio wizard has done just an amazing remix/revision/total overhaul (part of the Sheffield Year of Making) of my sound piece that accompanied the buried moon film.
He’s taken what was simply a bare bones audio track of me reading the folk tale and turned it into an ambient bit of magic that unfolds beautifully to colour the world around the tale.
Its simply so fantastic that I felt it deserves a visual revisit of the work to match.
