Deck Picture Technical Drawing 3

Good progress on this thing. Managed to finish drawing up one deck… which means I’ve basically finished two decks. Bonus.

I’ve been driving myself half crazy trying to deconstruct the tone arm assembly. Building it flat and layered in a way that will allow me to easily fill the vector paths to make it look solid. Its a proper head mess.

I’m starting to learn a few bits and bobs about Illustrator now. At least it should be fairly easy to draw up the mixer. There’s still some work to do to close off the paths etc on the decks, but milestone, reached.

No more life drawing a for a while now so I gotta get my kicks elsewhere.

Making slow progress on my decks paint by numbers. Technical drawings are just not really that much fun when you’re learning software you don’t really got on with in the process… :D

Going to have another bash at the other big painting I started a few years ago but never finished, when I can muster the juices.

Decks Picture 24th June 2015

Finished mocking up what its pretty much going to look like. DMCropley_Decks-picture-main-lite_1 I’m going to make a full-on technical line drawing in illustrator next. Then colour it flat colours with maybe a couple of gradients. Maybe I’ll do it CMYK. Part of an evolving master plan. Eventually I’ll get to the point where I can transfer the lot to an A1 canvas and start actually painting. Some time.
