OGR 16/11/2012Hi Sam,Well - what a delight your character is - in all her luxuriant awfulness and bordello-esque attire! She exists very clearly in my imagination - not least because of all those witty, expressive drawings of her; your drawings of the Venusian Queen remind me of the work of 2 other artists, Beryl Cooke:http://image.guardian.co.uk/sys-images/Arts/Arts_/Pictures/2008/05/28/strippoker460.jpgand the animations by Joanna Quinnhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ficrLSm-dYkhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8S9XJLtLhU&feature=related(Joanna Quinn's work is amazing - and your Venusian Queen would fit right in amongst Quinn's women!).I'm very confident in regard to your resolution of the Queen's boudoir - very atmospheric final painting, I can almost smell the sweet, heady perfume and scent of Turkish Delight and slightly spoiled bouquets of roses! I'm still not 100% sure about the proportion of your hero-prop fan-thing; it just seems like an awful lot of metal machinary to power a small amount of feathers. Personally, I think the size of the fan could be much more exaggerated - and much more peacock-tail like - though it might be that this is the machine 'at rest' and when it's in operation, the fan does open out? Nonetheless, I would investigate a few more iterations wherein you play fast and loose with the proportions. That said, you've clearly worked very hard to resolve your various components for this stage in the 7 week project and I find your determination and 'open heart to new experiences' very satisfying...So, Sam, Maya awaits you... go wrestle and good luck!
