Did a bit more work with the skyscraper lights tonight. I also added a tree to the foreground. It’s a creepy tree – it has thorn like branches jutting out from the side of it that invoke a prickly pain. Not a place you want to be. These thorns reminded me of a doll that Wendy Froud has made of a faery named Gothica. Instead of wings she has thorns growing out her back. It provokes a strong reaction right away – a wince, a yearning to run the other way. I want that for this Underworld too.
In the background I’ve added a glimpse of what will be my main device of doom. A little tease back there in between two trees. And in the main tree I’ve added a staircase – this will come into play with the main device and how people are being punished. (again, you can click on the photo for a larger view)
And that’s it for tonight. I’m watching Key and Peele – they’re pretty funny. See you tomorrow!
