'Characters/Scene from' KyleC, ClintB, IanW, SimonM - 'Do Androids Dream of Electronic Sheep?'
So with this years entry figure being a group collaboration, ClintB was kind enough to set up a small group of us to put together a set for Curt!
After batting around a few ideas, it was agreed that a few of us would paint up some Sheep. But what to do with them from there was going to be the question. Should we just base them separately or in mini groups, and then ship them altogether? Or should we do a larger scene?
I was not really in the mood for painting sheep ( cause the rest of the guys were doing a fantastic job on them already ) so offered up putting them all together onto a larger base and make a small diorama out of it!
I had no idea what I was going to really do with them so began to work on a few ideas first.. penciling in some scenes or theories of what could be done.
It was while chatting with Clint about how I had some robots kicking around that the idea of Philip K Dick book "Do androids dream of Electronic sheep?" came in... was more intrigued when I found out it was the inspiration for Blade Runner..
So off I went trying to find the most appropriate socket to fit this all on. And in the end I actually used 2! One for the main base there, and the other to help create a ledge/cliff for the robot to sit on.
I think that the work that ClintB, IanW and SimonM put into the sheep to make this happen was really what pushed the project forward. And I was lucky enough to receive them to put together such a scene. Their faith that I wouldn't botch it all up at the finish line was great to have!
Now final photos are being taken, and the package being boxed up ready for the long trip to the Prairies, Canada to sit at its new home!
