Potato Warriors

Posted by on June 10, 2011


For the next review meet we want to have some definite characters on the board with a couple of colour ways for each, maybe two characters each for the historical and the mythological warriors categories. I got Abdullahji to make me copies of the final selected form (my mom was wondering why I have been carrying a bagful of potatoes with me to the studio everyday) so that we can directly sketch onto the wood pieces. The illustrations take on a completely different flavour when drawn on the three-dimensional surface from what they look like in the sketchbook or on the computer screen.

Some of the historical warriors that I’ve been researching on, like Rani Laxmibai or Guru Gobind Singh hardly have any photographs or original paintings, they do however represent certain communities (Marathas and Sikhs respectively) and its the symbols of those communities that we must tap into; Marathas have a signature mark on their forehead while Sikhs sport the turban and beard.  Soujanyaa has come up with anthropomorphic mythological characters like Vasuki (multi-headed hooded snake king) and Garuda (Eagle King) and these look like they have a lot of potential. So far we have four characters with about 4-6 colour ways for each.
