mvcrft365 “Cornish Lullaby”

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013 | Blog, Downloads

Continuing with my series of one-a-day images in 2013. Each week, con­sume one piece of media: short story, song, arti­cle, or pre­sen­ta­tion, or etc… Cre­ate seven images based on that con­cept. Spend about 90 min­utes on each image. Repeat 52x.

This week’s theme is for my son, Kal. It’s based on the poem by Eugene Field, “Cornish Lullaby”. Eugene Field wrote the much more famous “Wynken, Blynken, and Nod”, but he was a very prolific children’s poet, and I wanted to visualize some fresh territory. I’m not much of a character modeler, so it was a challenging week indeed.


15  …And this is the song the hill-folk croon, As they trudge in the light of the misty moon.

16 GOLD! GOLD! EVER MORE GOLD! Does anyone else read this poem in their head like a pirate instead of a lullaby?

17 The trolls go up and the trolls go down.

18 Just a little frame.

19 Merrily ever the cavern rings/ As merrily ever his pick he swings.

20 …But of love. Also managed to not draw Mama or an elf. but out of town and busy this weekend so the burden I beareth is no time.

21 Deep in the hill a father delves/All night long, all night long; None but the peering, furtive elves

Here’s the source files (offline, email me). I saved over the source file for daily 15, so no c4d file. The materials are still there. Various formats. Cinema4D, AE, PSD, AI. The usual disclaimer: I’m liberally using google images and intentionally working messy and destructively. These are certainly not production files. I don’t own all of the copyrights to every reference image, but I try and source from Creative Commons and wikipedia when I can. You can use them as an educational resource, but please don’t charge for the source files, redistribute, repackage, or copyright the images in any way.
