Default Coming Attractions

This dragonship figurehead is a project currently in the works. The proof-of-concept is carved from pink insulation foam sheets, and will have three layers. The third layer will be a mirror image of the front layer, and still needs to be carved. Ultimately, the figurehead should be made from HDU, but Iíll continue with this one to test the painting techniques. Stay tuned.

Very nice, Oliver. Interesting how you've added more depth with the layers.

Pretty cool, Oliver! I still haven't tried any of that or the HDU but I guess I need to jump on the bandwagon and give it a shot one day.
