Soooo...I made the exterior of the Sultan's palace - still some more gold to be put on this.
The onion domes are plasticine with several layers of plaster over the top.
Also I started making the baron's outfit (yeh, I'm remaking him, i was never happy with how he looked), but unfortunately his arm broke half way through so i'll have to finish him tomorrow when it's dried.
Loving the sunshine :D
I just had a glass of Pimms so i'll have to read this tomorrow to make sure it makes sence..

Hey, sorry it's been so long!
WARNING THIS IS A MEGA LONG POST - JUST WATCH THE PICS IF YOU CAN'T BE BOTHERED TO READ IT ALL, I WOULDNT :P
During the time i've had off posting, i've done lots of things for the film, most of which was trial and error, more often then not error - so I'm gunna leave out all the boring stuff that didnt work, and put in the important stuff!
When the Baron first arrives in St Petersburg, Russia, there is an illustration of him in his sliegh, headed towards the town. So i had some spare time and decided to start making the town, and ended up getting two buildings almost done;
All that's needed now is for them both to be plastered over and painted. I still need to make some more buildings!
Next is onto something i did aagggeess ago, but i wasnt going to use it as i don't like it much. When i realised it isnt THAT bad and is only a background, i decided to bring it back into the story. So here ladies and gentlemen is the SULTAN'S palace:
I still need to glue that shelf up and put some vase/pots in it. I also need to make lots more furniture and STOOF (stuff with lancaster accent) hehe..
I've started on the first pieces of furniture, two chairs for the baron and sultan to sit in. Here is one nearly finished:
to sit on that chair...
to live in that palace...
THE SULTAN! (headless and handless but the point still stands)
VERY fat but still cool :D
So anyways, Claudio Antonelli is currently in the process of making the title sequence for me (he's the film's editor). I've explained exaclty what I want and found the perfect music.
I love being a director.
It makes me feel powerful
See ya round..
