Here is some progress on the outer-layer line-work. For the most part I have been doing all the line-weights at 0.15 in Illustrator. The basket was perhaps the most complicated piece on the tripod to draw so I went ahead and finished the final line-weights on this particular section as I had built up momentum on it. Line-weights are as follows: The outermost line (for the entire tripod) 0.75, secondary inner bold lines 0.5, inner bold lines 0.35, main line work 0.15, and plane changes/details 0.05. It is taking quite some time to complete this stage of my project, but I want to make sure I'm doing it right. Since I plan on publishing this and future works I want to ensure each artwork is of the best quality and close to or on par with the level of some of the masters of cutaway/cross-section art.
Stay tuned for future updates.
