This is a new project I am working on, I've had the idea rattling around since Monte, a sea god takes the form of a wave to swallow a ship! Pretty simple idea, but obviously the execution is going to be a little tricky. Everything I am sculpting will be hollow cast in tinted clear resin, I will cut the piece in two after it's baked, make 2 silicone moulds and from there layer tinted resin in the mould, I will be adding darker and lighter colours to add depth and definition to the wave in the same way Jean-Bernard André does with his work (if you don't know Jean, check him out, he is a master when it comes to water)
At the moment I am still refining, sharpening the basic shapes as well establishing symmetry, the dreadfleet ship has had it's keel restored and it's 2 masts removed to open it up and make it less cluttered, although a flag pole will return on top of the building. I am looking to get away from the GW feel of the ship, although colour wise red/orange would make sense to contrast with the blue/teal wave, the sails are nicely detailed, but my first thought was to get rid of the detail to add my own freehand and also am not a big fan of the chap with the hammer, I'd like to replace him in all honesty!
Your thoughts and idea are always appreciated! I actually need some help naming the project, any thoughts?
