So, we made it to the top of the hill of Amon Hen, and now we reach The Seat of Seeing. An incredible structure and definitely the most challenging in terms of the modelling work that went into into it. I spent a lot of time researching this to make sure the details were all correct and deep dived into the books, film and behind the scenes footage to try and piece together how the structure fits together.
So we start as we always do - referencing.
Once I had gathered and studied the images and did some sketches I started by blocking out the main shapes, adding details once I was happy with its form and placement.
I created 1 eagle to be duplicated and detailed differently in ZBrush, and a single wing for the statues for the same process.
Here are some dimensions for the platform I worked to:
I printed the parts and you can see these below:
Here are some images from the shoot:
