Best Friends Pin - student project

Favourite Apple Metal Pin

I quite liked the detail and surreal nature of this one, it gives you a lot to look at.

Sketch

I decided to go with something cute and simple -- the idea of two things being best friends popped into my mind, I started with a cup of tea and a biscuit

but I ended up liking the idea of a sword + sheath a little better.  I did an initial sketch with some thoughts + ideas

Then it was a matter of putting it all together.  I blocked out half the shape then mirrored it

Then I blocked out the colours and added some detail lines.  I then realised that this would probably be too thin for a pin, so I added a third friend - a happy little shield - to tie it all together.
