Someone might remember that I mentioned something about doing motorcycles on ice sculptures about a month before. No I didn't forget to post it, because my version did NOT make it to the ice and was completely out of specification.
Here is the sketch on computer which looks very similar to Jennifer Edwards' line art, and the bikes are Suzuki Hayabusa and Suzuki Katana for those who wants to know:-
The problems were many. First, you can't have too much detail on ice, hence the lines can't be too close to each other or the bits will drill right through and creating a lot of cracks. Secondly, the size of each ice block is 40"x20", there's no room to fit both of these to show any details anyway. Thirdly, ice sculptures work best if you draw on a flat 2D view, these have a slight perspective, the effects on computer might look nice, but due to the crystal clear nature of the ice, it won't translate well and the audience would not see what they were. Simply said, I broke the rules of the game, so I lost. But I learned the limitations of the machines, and it's a mistake I will always remember ^^
Thank you all for your kind comments on my Breaux Bridge sketch. I'll be heading to the printing shop in town tomorrow to see if there's anything we could do to market it as postcards. Wish me luck =)
