I am in agreement 1.0 is a good choice. i can see how it would work, whereas the others I do not quite understand how they would operate. Mind you, with the giant feathers its pretty obvious its a fan of some description! Nice work as always Samantha! :D
You know - with all that baroque finery, I'm wondering if maybe on Venus there's some kind of enormous peacock from which your queen could pluck her fan feathers - there's something about peacock feathers - all that blue - that would really pop in your red-themed boudoir!http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3458/3991690841_7d65f06b2a.jpghttp://1.bp.blogspot.com/_RID0yDYY1no/S_wCQHvidPI/AAAAAAAAAKo/29Ob9zC9fM8/s1600/peacock_feather_davi_flickr.jpgthere's something too about the 'vanity' of the peacock and the big round shapes that might better suit your character?
Yes, to be honest - I was thinking the same thing. I will try using it when working on final concept :)
Very professional layout to your hero prop, and great idea bringing it back to the silhouettes to open up your imagination. Inspirational.
