Concept Sketches -

We've received our assignment list to choose from for the IMC next month.
There are three that I am interested in at least some preliminary exploration -

The first one is The Lady of the Lake (from the King Arthur mythology cycle)

That could be fun - Celtic knotwork in the border, hand lettering, lots of floaty hair...

The second one that appealed to me was a "far futuristic high-tech 0r steam-punk alt-version of the Wizard of Oz". No high tech for me, but steam punk would be fun. Mechanized flying monkeys anyone?

The last was a children's manuscript, written by the esteemed Jane Yolen of a toothfairy story - where the 'manager' had to make the nightly tooth run. Given all the steampunk outfits I was looking at, I thought it'd be fun to make him that sort of guy as well,

Now to pick one and develop further...

Tara, I'm so loving the OZ one. That one just jumped out at me. Mechanized flying winged-monkeys, oh my!

My favorite is the flying monkeys - a lot of potential there! Fun stuff!

I just ordered some glass slippers and mannequin legs for a reference shoot for Oz, myself. . . :)

The story of the tooth dairy is (ahem) mine.
