May Sketchbook

This month has been more of a planning time with some very rough sketching.  I'm thinking about setting up little scenarios to photograph my robots in, military inspired of course.  It got me thinking about military training camps and how I could create these scenes.  Some ideas are:

The old wire crawl idea.  I have actually been making miniature versions of barb wire but more on that later.

Tyre jump

And the chin up bar....I said give me 10!

So far I have made a few sand bags and have been experimenting with photographs, seeing how well it could fit together.

Not bad for a mornings work.  I need to make more sandbags now though and have a closer look at the set of Hogan's Heroes I think.  I had a little play in Photoshop too with bits and pieces.

Yep, black and white with a bit of vignetting for good luck.  I'm actually going to use my Diana F+ camera when I set it all up properly as nothing can truly recreate the look of grainy film like the real thing.  Hopefully it will all be great!  What do you think?
