This is the Trimonosaur! Its long, slender body and cone shaped head enables it to tunnel through the heaps of debris and its long, extending arms can remove or claw through anything that it can't. Its arms usually support most of its weight while its four insect-like legs provide the forward movement. Its arms can extend an extra 6 inches to reach for its prey. Its eye is on a long, flexible stalk hidden inside its three-part mouth, which is lined with short, but very sharp, teeth.
Okay, there's the bio. Now here's what I need to say:
This thing is absolutely the largest thing I have ever made! It's over 43 inches long! Why so big? I wanted to make a REAL creature from "9." Life-size. And it is fully articulated! Fingers, arms, legs, mouth, everything moves! This was REALLY hard to do, everything was so sharp. I found everything I needed around my house. And it's all held together with wire or screws and bolts. The only tape I used was on the eye, because wire just didn't want to cut it. The burlap is all sewed on with embroidery thread and some copper wire.
This guy is made of: stainless steel wire mesh an old pair of scissors a stainless steel pipe 'Erector" parts Popsicle sticks painted silver a spark plug red wire rubber washers aluminum sheeting copper plating "Exacto" knives 2 inspection tools bolts burlap embroidery thread copper wire stainless wire 3 hinges steel diamond grating ball-and-socket joints from a hands-free tool 1 rubber band 1 wire tie 1 red LED 1 flashlight head 1 goose-neck lamp plastic tubes painted silver
And several things that I have no clue as to what they are. You would not believe how hard those ball-and-socket joints are to find! Apparently they're made exclusively for inspection tools and those hands-free things.
HIV awareness. flatlineeeee made this in paint for a contest.
get yourself tested. health first, kids.
This was my first attempt at text art. I have problems with the quality of this (because it was done in MS Paint and I really should have done it in Photoshop) so I'll update it later with better quality.
For some reason it's fuzzy around the text now?! I don't know how the hell that happened, but it happened just after I updated it. GRRRR promise I'll fix that soon
If you're interested, or a passionate HIV/AIDS activist , my other pieces for AIDS awareness can be found here:
I won HIV Testing Day Talk the Talk with this and the World Aids Day Awareness Contest
omg! a DD! Thanks so much guys, really! That means a lot, especially because it brings awareness to such an important issue.
All traditional Media, watercolor, markers. No pencils this time, I was too lazy for those. :3 Sadly the glitter I used on the outer side of the tentacles is not visible on the scan. Q_q 's really sparkly here.
What can I say? I wanted to draw tentacles. XB
Critique as always highly appreciated but you really don't need to use the critique option to write it when you think something's wrong with the image. : D
I never enter contests, but the theme for this one really appealed to me. XD I've just finished school, and what I want to do in the future has been on my mind a lot lately. Unfortunately it never was and still isn't really clear to me what I really want to do... >_>
This piece is probably more metaphorical and really describes an emotion rather than a situation. When you say 'What are your dreams?' this is my feeling. Something soft, a bit blurry and undefined, fragile, blossoming, but nevertheless, something above and beyond the suffocating depths.
There are so many things I wanted to convey here, personal as well as things I thought would be universal. I really couldn't tell you exactly what they are so you could say it's open to interpretation xD
This drawing may seem a bit confusing. Like my aspirations xP. Colourful, mixed up, and not quite straight-forward..... Standing at the edge of the beginning is really exciting xD
