Until then, I figure it could be helpful to many to share a walk-through of how I'm making my model in Blender.
Right now I'm laying out a duo exhibition with Josie Johnson. Here are some shots of what I've rendered so far:
And this is what the model looks like not rendered:
It's a work in progress!
