WOW I wasn't expecting to log in today to 1600 messages!!
I saw a traditional painting from Jacek Yerka with gardens on a cube like this, and I just wanted to try that concept in 3d, but I thought that by adding the transitions, and the change in seasons, it might be more fun and challenging for me.
So when I was first sketching my version of each "garden", each side of the cube, I tried to create the quintessential version of each season - in my own imagination anyway.
The frozen pond, the abandoned playground after school has begun, summer vegetables, the clarity of spring flowers. I knew I was going to be working with a cliche subject (4 seasons), and tried to add depth to that idea.
