When I start a new commission, it usually takes
In the case where I get something like this, it's a little more involved. I've found that my clients have a real good idea of what they want and it's just a matter of covering all the details and making sure nothing is missed.
With Sarpedon, it took a few emails back and forth before I knew exactly how my client wanted the transition from the upper human torso into the lower spider portion with 8 legs. Once that was figured out, we moved onto how the armour was going to match that transition. Above is one of the sketches I sent him with a possibility.
Here's what came back to me, a few changes to the body and we're in business. Another part of this one was getting Sarpedon's weapon "correct." Not just in size, but shape and overall feel as it relates to the model.
Everyone has their own vision of how things should look, it's my job to make their model look like what they imagine it should.
