After the design has been finalised, I get an empty cereal box and cover the outside in cardboard. This makes the box stronger, as these stores need to hold stuff in them and usually have moving parts.
Then, I draw the design of the storefront onto the box, being accurate with measurements and such. (I also like to double-check the proportions look reasonable in comparison to the world’s inhabitants!)
If I have a lot of the paper I’m using for the cladding, I will just plaster that on and re-draw my lines. Because I only have scraps of this brick paper, I’m being a bit more careful when applying it.
Then it’s time to start sketching!
These will be the insides of the windows, and below is the shop’s signage. (Whesan being the name of the town Sarah and co. live in.)
The signage is probably the quickest thing to finish here, because that doesn’t need any extra finishes beyond colours. The windows need colours, glass, and frames, and the door hasn’t been started yet! Hopefully next time you see this storefront, it will be complete. In the meantime, I’ll keep taking progress photos.
Anyways, see ya!
