New project sketches- Hitchhiking Ghosts
These are the very rough pencil/color sketches for one of the plushed wall hangings I'm working on for Disneyland's Haunted Mansion 40th Anniversary. It will be about 3 feet wide by 5 feet tall when I'm done. I'm using mainly cotton for this, with corduroy pieced into panels for the door. If you can see it in the color sketch, I'm using tones of blues to indicate the transparent aspect of the ghosts as the interact with the door frame, etc. It will take me about a month to finish, including sketching/patternmaking time. A big project, but a fun one! I'll post more WIP pics next week. Have a great weekend, I'm off to the sewing machine!
