Most of these sketches are just ‘thoughts on a page’ I did have one or two ‘Eureka’ moments where I thought that I had a really good shot- though now, looking back on my sketches of the temples looking out towards a mountainous path, it seems rather stereotypical.
|Just some 'Brain doodles of a mountain and a 'fancy' mansion along with a rift leading up to said mansion. but as I said- their brain doodles.|
|Half a brain doodle, half a 'placeing-of-things' doodle, I don't particually like this sketch as it has the lack of any type of scale. it just looks like a small hill you might see in north Yorkshire behind a house.|
|Mansion desgining. I liked this desgin, but not the angle. it was a 'bowl of soup' I was dreading. and it had nothing but a house desgin.|
|mountain sketches. while scoureing through a serch of 'mountains veiw' I found a realy good picture (that I will put in my resource findings below) that had alot of detail, a cavernous apperence AND mountains in the distance.|
|This is a 'Eureka' moment for me. not only do I have perspective, but I have a cavern or chasm of sorts with the mansion in the back-ground. not takeing up the entire picture.|
|then... more brain doodles. I was trying to aim for a more imposeing building for the 'shunned house', but It didn't work well|
|back to 'House on the borderline' and yet another Eureka moment- statues! egypian statues of the chaos god 'Seth' (or 'Set') giving an arch-way to the way to the shunned house- like a portal of sorts.|
|I tried from the other side of the door- the opposite angle, loking down the stairs to the basement. though, again- I like it. the angles are a bit off and it was hard to try and fix them... wich I failed to do so|
All of these images I looked at are from 'google' serches. I made sure they were photographs and not copy-righted.
|A string of mountains, both far an near, covered in cloud and mist- I was hopeing to digitaly paint something like this.|
|This photo inspired the 'Eurika' moment, though it being a chasm more than a mountain.|
|With that original 'Eurika' moment, I serched for temples that were lined with sculpted Gods and Goddesses, this is the Meenakshi Temple|
|I soon remembered out the apperence of Set and his Egyptian origin. and once again scoured for an image of a 'hallway' lined with Egyptian Gods and Godesses which led me to this image of Abu Simbel temple.|
