Changes are a thing.
So, the last post had a few paint elevations that needed to change after talking with creative team. I will say that being able to makes changes quickly in Photoshop has been a huge upside in my process. In my past process, it would have meant reprinting all the drafting and starting from scratch. Not terrible, just time consuming. I also really love sitting at home with the family by the fire as I crank out these elevations.
I did want to highlight the Canon ip8720 printer I used to turn in the Paint elevations to the shop . https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/support/details/printers/inkjet-single-function/ip-series/ip8720/pixma-ip8720. I had never used this printer before, an I found it to create some amazing results.
All elevations were printed on 13X19” Canon matte photo paper.
I will add, that every time I need to print something, the printer always seems to be “Low on Ink”. so after doing a full restock of ink, I was set to “Print”.
Below I will highlight some of the changes that I made prior to submitting the final Paint Elevations.
First up are the Towers, which did not have any changes to them, I just needed to show all sides in the elevations.
Next is the Deck, which due to budget and build constraints, became a rectangular shape utilizing more of our stock platforms.

The Scaffold did not significantly change, but I did adjust the opacity of a few layers to get a darker finish.
The Pillory did not change other than just adding a few more shadows and cutlines to define the piece more.
Big changes with the Bed and Cradle…..

Also big changes with the Tree Canopies….
