COAT OF SMILES, parody art of iconic symbols. A duck's hat, a mouse's ears and a smiling yellow button. Three iconic things brought together in one artwork.

Duckland: ... and then some

Here are two more cast-out pieces from the Duckland main-visual tests. At this test stage, I don't go for clean-up quality, that would take me too long, but for atmosphere.

Duckland: The Alchemist

As I already said, there were a lot of Duckland main-sujet tests. This one here is based again on a Carl Spitzweg painting, 'The Alchemist' (ca. 1860). I didn't spend much time on it and kept it very, very rough and sketchy, I early discovered that is was way too dark, in terms of too less light, for the main visual of the show.

Duckland: Yet another rough cast-out poster sujet test

Wolfgang Amadeus Duck has a weakness for mechanic sound effects. Moreover, this very machine makes excellent chocolate truffles, of course.

Apropos, I did a lot testing, so stay tuned ;-)
