A set of support-free printable sheepies, inspired by the watercolour illustations from the French book Le Petit Prince (1943).
'Where I live, everything is very small. What I need is a sheep. Draw me a sheep.
So then I made a drawing. He looked at it carefully, then he said: “No. This sheep is already very
sickly. Make me another.”
So I made another drawing. My friend smiled gently and indulgently.
“You see yourself,” he said, “that this is not a sheep. This is a ram. It has horns.
So then I did my drawing over once more. But it was rejected too, just like the others. “This one is
too old. I want a sheep that will live a long time... ' - The Little Prince, by Antoine De Saint-Exupery.

The initial concept behind transforming the illustations from 2D to 3D is to create resources to improve the experience of literature for the blind and partially sighted through rendering illustrations and graphics from well-known fiction into tactile objects and reliefs. I have included some progress screen shots of the modelling process in zbrush aswell. Stay tuned for more in the series...
