30 Sophie's Escape

This project has been in my mind for two years and it took two years to realize.

The original title was to have been 'Escape from the Wall', which evolved to 'Escape from the Asylum', then just 'Escape' and finally 'Sophie's Escape'.

Faces proved to be one of the most difficult things to create, I'm not sure why, perhaps it's the symmetry. I got there in the end, as usual the face just 'appeared' with little effort on my part. The hair was created from a few hand drawn squiggles. I just hollowed out the space between the lines which produced a stylized hair effect.

My original idea was to create four separate pieces which when attached to a wall would give the impression of a person climbing out of the wall; a head, two hands and a foot. As the piece [pieces?] developed I added additional pieces which I felt were necessary to emphasize the concept. The final piece is made up of a total of 7 pieces.

I remembered to take some progress photos this time.
