A scene from the dead space 2 "dementia" trailer, with Isaac still in his old Engineering suit. carved a stamp from linoleum and stamped this out. The unitoligist writing is backwards because of this... damn my inability to foresee this!
I made this last year for my Advanced Studio class. Our project was to pick an artist (but not the typical ones that everyone picks like Van Gogh or Monet) and mimic their style. So, as I was trying to look for an artist I've never heard of before whose art was really amazing and innovative, I stumbled on exactly that: www.thisiscolossal.com/2014/03…
This Indian couple, going by the nickname Hari and Deepti, cuts silhouettes out of watercolor paper and layer them on top of each other to create an image or scene, then they put them together in a shadow box and place a light behind it, making for a stunning creation! After looking through all their pieces, I read how they make them, then decided the supplies would be simple enough to gather! Then my mind was set on mimicking their style to depict this amazing scene from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban! I'm not sure what they're called, but I like to call them "Light Boxes"!
I love Harry Potter! Ob...viously...(said in Snape's voice) So it was a simple decision to make! The third book/movie isn't my favorite, but I love them all anyways! Plus, this scene is just soooo amazing! Harry totally kicks ass in this moment! First, he tried to save his Godfather, who he thought was trying to murder him only moments earlier, from having his soul sucked! Then he and Hermione went BACK IN TIME to save Sirius! Then he performs his first successful patronus, which scares away 100 dementors! Now, try and tell me that isn't awesome! And clearly this moment in the series is one of the most iconic as well as one of the most visually engaging! It was a must for this project!
It was simple enough and I got the hang of it pretty quickly! It was weird though, trying to capture my style in their art form. To cut my images instead of draw them. But it sure was fun! And I bought a light that changes to the coolest colors, so it's a pretty awesome creation that you can stare at for quite a while! I wish I could find a way to upload a video of it changing colors, but I don't have the time. But yeah, this is a picture of how it looks in the dark with the inside light on! It turned out exactly how I imagined it would and it's probably my favorite piece of art I've ever done! I was supposed to upload all of my favorite art projects I did throughout high school during the summer but I forgot, so I had to upload this now, before I start my second one! So, if you liked this, look forward to more of these, b/c I love 'em! The next one will be a depiction of the scene in The Nightmare Before Christmas where Jack Skellington sings on the iconic hill in Halloween Town's graveyard! I can't wait!
Oh, and btw, that Harry Potter logo is the one I made for my Graphic Design class as well. We got to recreate a book jacket and I chose to do the Deathly Hallows but we couldn't use the same font or logo as the original, so I made my own font!
The Raven Guard is done. After many months of inactivity.
And as I put him together, I realised the super-glue had gotten so old it could not get out of the bottle. It was viscous but flowed so badly it just wouldn't budge. I have to get new glue if I am to continue with Finecast and metal minis.
Speaking of Finecast, this mini was so miscast it had to be basically rebuilt. Left shoulder pad had to be resculpted in places, the left hand with chainsword exchanged for a new one (it's a slightly modified one from the Chaos Space Marines plastic frame) and several tiny jingles and jangles had to be removed altogether (hence the ugly as feth purity seal on the left leg).
Black was easy: Black base -> edge highlight of 50/50 mix of Chaos Black and Codex Grey -> finer edge highlight with Codex Grey -> Extreme edge highlight with Fortress Grey.
White was a bit harder: Fortress Grey base colour -> Shade with Badab Black wash -> Retouch the Fortress Grey -> Highlight with 50/50 mix with Fortress Grey and Skull White -> Edge highlight with an off white, which was essentially 20/80 mix of Fortress Grey and Skull White respectively -> Extreme edge highlight with Skull White.
Metallics were made with Vallejo Model Color metallics. They suck, btw. Don't use them. Citadel Colour metallic paints are better, even if the pots are arse.
If you have any further questions, don't hestitate to ask. I am always happy to answer them.
well this time around i decided not to ruin the paint job of my car and instead decided to make it a vinyl this time. i feel like i did a better job on the eclipse, but hey, i can always take it off and redo it one day. but i probably wont....laziness ....anyway i know someone already sharpied a lexus IS, but in my defense, i sharpied my eclipse before that one. and we all copied the lambo dude. does anyone read this?
