Exploratory historical art studies for Project A - wild pigs.
I spend a few months sketching details from various sources. Drawing almost serves to ‘slow load’ these fragments into some deep, creative corner of my brain. I let them rattle around in there for a little while before beginning to fumble towards the final design.
Here, I’ve studied the abstract horse design from an ancient celt coin (top left, top photo) and extrapolated how a wild pig might be represented in the same manner. Rather pleased with the final design! These shall go onto the bracers. :)
