The Hunter: Our second design for Rammstein 16 Apr, 2015 With the first Rammstein design all finished (click here to see it), it was time to start the second. As with previous pieces, I started this one by blowing up the small-scale sketch and using a lightbox to transfer elements to a larger sheet. Using a blue lead pencil I then tightened up all the lines, added more detail and supporting elements, and re-drew the deer's head. Initially, the eyeballs on the deer's antlers were looking in the same direction as the deer. I re-drew them facing forward as it gave more of a hypnotic effect. The draped cloth was a late addition to the sketch, as it was needed to provide an area for the lyrics. By now, I had started using our new 'white on black' technique, which involves using a special opaque white paint over black areas. This method is perfect for adding highlights, like highlights on the sword handles and the deer's nose. When painting larger elements back in, I draw them in ballpoint pen on large black areas or marker pen, so I can see where I am painting. On the above image you can see an eye drawn in this way, to the left of the deer. As always, it is a pleasure working with Rammstein and the feedback we received was great. I will post the third design soon! Get 15% off your first order and never miss out on our latest posts!
