Looney Signs - sign kit box
My new sign kit box was in need of tickling up a bit and the theme I wanted to do was based around cartooning and simple illustration which I have not had a lot of experience in. Ah well, give it a go.
This ex Army ammo box was started here in studio and I got the horse head pic up to the stage you see here in the first photo at Letterheads but ran out of time to progress further. All the paints used here are again my trusty Resene Lumbersider Testpots and are waterbased.
The next weekend was "Lets Paint", so here we go...
If you attempt anything like this remember that if you use harmonious colours that sit well together, you will always have a neat bit of art for your friends and clients to admire. If in doubt just buy a few "Looney Tunes" cartoon books and use as reference.
We're not finished yet. This is one side and top of my box and I want to add more.

The thing here to watch out for as the dark colours (in this case the dark blue in her hair) hide the black lines later when you turn on the projector again to use as a guide as to where you're gonna paint those black lines.
I stopped, yeah I did, and waited until night time and the darkness was a huge help to see the projected image.
