[Forest in Summer - 9] : Block #5 finally done ...

Posted by Dave Bull at 10:32 AM, June 25, 2009

Continued from [Forest in Summer - 8] | Starting point of the thread is [Forest in Summer - 1]

It's taken nearly a full week, but block #5 is finally done:

This will be a grey tone, and will have an effect on the tree (of course), and also on many of the grasses. Whether or not that overlapping will turn out to be a mistake or not, remains to be seen ...

Here's the latest update on the working hour totals:

1st block (image) : 17.5 hours
2nd block (image) : 17 hours
3rd block (image) : 15 hours
4th block (image) : 22 hours
5th block (image) : 32.5 hours

So, with 5 out of 10 block faces done, we've used 104 hours, spread out over 19 different days. Maximum for any given day has been 8.5 hours; minimum 1.5 hours.

Now, what's next?

The next block in 'sequence' should be the one that I showed earlier ...

... but after that marathon, I really don't feel like starting another 'monster' just yet. So I'll put aside my policy of 'get them out of the way early', and take it easy for a few days with the blocks that will print most of the area in the far distance.

Because that zone is quite small in scale, I've managed to fit four 'blocks' onto two faces of a single plank. Here are images of the two sides:


So although there are still two faces that I haven't yet shown, I think you should now be able to create a fairly accurate mental image of what the final print might look like ...

The blocks look most intriguing, as for being able to create a fairly accurate mental image of the final print hmmmm, thanks for thinking I could LOL. Looking forward to seeing proofs.
