Some Houses of Healing cookie art. Faramir was a pain to draw; my drawing males has a long way to go yet. Compared to him, Éowyn was a piece of cookie cake. He's not what I imagined him to look like, too: I'm afraid he ended up looking a bit Aragorn-ish. Ah well, at least that explains Éowyn's change of heart a bit - "Hey, cool, this guy looks a bit like him!" Heh.
Media - gingerbread cookie dough leftover, chocolate icing, flat-pointed and sharp-pointed toothpicks.
Secret Santa exchange gift for AmmeLirulin over at CoE, who requested Faramir and/or Eowyn.
New helmet I've made. It's inspired on the helmet worn by Eomer in Lord of the Rings. This is a fully wearable helmet. I like how it turned out. Materials are basically the same as the Achilles helmet I made. A crest still needs to be added.
I listened to the musical "The count of Monte Cristo" the whole time while I was making this. I wonder when I've listened to it too often...
Anyway, I wanted to do a scissorcut for the "Hobbit" by Tolkien for quite some time. Preferably before the movie comes out, so that I wouldn't be influenced. I bought a block of black paper which is cheaper than the regular paper for scissor cuts I normally use and found that it's way easier to work with o.O
This is part of a shoot I was lucky enough to grab while we had a couple of days of snow in England, by the very talented [link].
I made Elrond for the finals of the Eurocosplay international cosplay competition in London 2012.
It's all hand made, from the 14,000 hand-woven chainmail rings, to a hand sculpted and resin cast Hadhafang sword. Took approx 5 months, and by the end of it I had quite a love/hate relationship with this costume!
Eurocosplay is a European cosplay competition that is mark 80% on costume craft and 20% on performance, with 2 representatives chosen to represent each country in the final. I was lucky enough to be a part of it in 2012!
This is my first piece completed under the direction of the stained glass shop where I now work. It is a pattern from the book "Celtic Knotwork" by Rachel Cecere. The main glass in the knot is NOT tan... it's an antique white glass with a very slight opal sheen to it, and no matter what I do to photograph it, it comes out tan.
I've now done 4 stained glass pieces all together. The next pattern is going to be one of my own design!
A large Treebeard paper cutout I've been working on since last fall (I think I drew the original sketch back in September).
The dimensions of the frame are 22 inches by 15 inches and about 8 inches deep.
I couldn't snap a very good picture because it has plexiglass across the front and was reflecting everything in my room. Hope you all enjoy it! Eventually I'm going to post some of the progress pictures on my blog, but as of right now I'm just happy to be done with this thing!
Edit (5/20): Just got on my computer after a hiatus of a couple of days. WOW! Lots of goings ons.
Thank you all for the DD! After the zillion hours of work I put into this thing it feels really good to know that people enjoy it so much. I apologize that I can't thank you all individually for the barrage of favorites too, but I don't have quite that much free time. Thank you all anyway though (if by some chance you happen to be reading this).
