Here are the concepts for my assets. These are just squidgy from my brain, so if anyone had different ideas about what they are supposed to look like please say!
The tea set I thought would be a good chance to contrast the disturbing foetal imagery. The thought of a dainty tea cup placed beside an oozing half formed child freaks me out.
Jars… fairly boring and empty…. and badly drawn :-/
Candle holder. In my head I imagined something quite OTT and garish.
Prayer rugs I would have concepted but I just couldn't get the drawing right, and it ended up just annoying me, so here’s a mini mood board instead. The prayer rugs my uncles have are all very colourful and ornate so that’s just what came to mind.
The Phoenix is symbolic of this- it lives for a 1000 years, ignites itself and its nest and from the ashes a new Phoenix is born- hense the new logo symbol thing.
I then decided to give them child like masks- signifying a very poorly looking kid. Disease/death/decay and whatnot but on the face of a baby... it freaked me out painting it... but, is that a good thing in this instance?
The daggers were literally made up as I went along. I did a bit of research into various designs but I wanted to keep the blade fairly short(ish) to signify it's not for stabbing and impaling but rather cutting... DRAWING TEH BLOOD (om nom). Could you guys give me an opinion as to which dagger design you like best? I quite like the bottom one (made of some sort of stone) as it depicts that it's ancient and it looks a little bit painful.
Then there's the sacrificial table itself. Don't ask how the fuck they managed to get that thing into the Queens building as it's made of solid stone. It just... is. I thought adding the lady underneath would be a) freakish b)more interesting, visually and 12) wouldn't be toooo hard to model as most of the details and form would be hidden by the cloth.
So yeah, there ya have it- what 'chu think?
