The last scene I have to draw for Sleepwalkers is set in the Victoria and Albert Museum. Which means all sorts of things I could not draw from memory - display cases that need to be at elast vaguely in perspective, impressive architecture... so I got on the train and went there to take pictures.
When I got out the piece of paper that was meant to be a copy of my page layout withthe shots I needed marked in, I found that it was a piece of paper belonging to my boyfriend (so I guess he now has my pencil rough copy somewhere in his files).
I got cross for a moment, then I just went and took 100 pictures, covering every angle I could think of. Of course when I got home I found that I did not have any of the ones I had planned to use. So I changed the roughs to use what I had.
This one actually fitted.
And I remembered to take the pictures from a low height to get the main character's eye line. (I get these things wrong a lot.)
I placed the photos in a grid and used my cintiq to doodle the characters on top.
So now I've printed these out and I can start drawing... Let's see how that works out.
