Is Third Time Charmed?
Posted on July 31 2016
Hi other creatures!
Check the design and make process of one of my favorite owl rings.
As long as I can remember myself creating, my design process was (and still is) filled with bitter failures, and sweet enlightenment's. I begin with a sketch, and then move on working on 3D model.
I sketched and looked on all my inspiration boards, opened Google and tipped: Great Horned Owl , fully motivated I set by my table and began carving the "New Bird" also known as the Great Horned Owl.
As I suspected, it wasn't easy.
MODEL N.1 9.5 hours
Result: Very Cat like, to many details, soft
MODEL N.2 6 Hours
After casting (again) into silver 925.
* Lines are very rough, too abstract almost not recognizable
So, after these two :/ I had to admit something is not working. Too rapidly made ( in the cognitive aspect I mean), I felt I was missing something out . Well I am not a quieter, and as much as I was feeling like a total @#$$%%##@!&&^% , I made a huge cup of coffee, and set for round 3.
MODEL N.3 8.5 hoursI was nervous and highly motivated ( best combo for creating) . This owl will not beat me. Oh No No No.
I began with sketches. I knew that all I need was to find those owl characteristics, and interpret them with a few basic lines.
I am not sure whether it was the Third time charm , or the fact that I was more calm and experienced on this time. But... Finally...its DONE
A few important points:
* DO NOT RUSH THE CREATIVE PROCESS
* DO NOT BREAK . EVER. ( Although coffee breaks are more than necessary )
