Gilgamesh, Part II

In my Concept Design class this quarter, I decided to continue working on my interpretation of the Gilgamesh epic. This time I wanted to focus more on drawings, since I felt they were lacking in my last presentation. I also made a maquette of the Bull of Heaven. I didn't have time to finish making all the scales, but otherwise the sculpting part is finished. It's made with Super Sculpey and Super Sculpey Firm, mixed together. I intended to bake and paint it, but didn't have time. Still, a grey maquette is a great tool for seeing how a three-dimensional form looks in real space, from different angles, and in different lighting scenarios.
