My entry for the Merrell Diorama Contest [link]

Dispite that fact that I've been working on this all month, I only just finished the diorama today... 1 day before the deadline *phew*, just in time.

The memory is from last year, when I was in Japan. At that time, my homestay family took me to an onsen/ hot spring at Nagano. At first I was super embarrassed to take a bath with other people, but it actually wasn't that bad. The hot water was so rejuvenating and relaxing.
My doirama was modeled on the outside bath, which was so pretty with the amber coloured trees surrounding it.

--------------------------------

As for materials:

The boulders are made of styrofoam that I found outside of a TV store. I then used a heat gun to shrink the foam so that it had a more organic shape. After that I used some cotton wool on the back to help it blend into the background. Then I coated everything in liquid laytex to water prof the box and to provide an interesting texture, then I painted the rocks grey. I also painted the bottom of the pond and sky at the same time. After I painted the water, I poured clear liquid resin into the center. I had to do more than one pour to keep the liquid level low, because it kept wanting to run out of the bottom. At the same time, I kept adding layers of cotton wool to create steam. The trees were made from thin wires for the trunks and orange 'fluff' for the leaves and the fence was made from a sushi mat.
Finally, I glued small rocks and dirt along the edges as well as some green 'fluff' on the top to create moss.

I really enjoyed compleating this project and I hope that I win, since the prizes sound amazing =D

Another item I am seldom without. Origami star paper. Long colorful strips that can simply be folded in cute little stars. Whether I have nothing to do, have antsy fingers, or a child is unhappy, I always keep a bag around.

I know that this may not be the prettiest bouquet, but my mom thought it was beautiful. And that's all that matters. ~~ :]
(not to mention that it was delicious too!!)

You can have it, look at it, and eat it too!!

I woke up early for Mother's Day to create this for my mom. (It was the first food item I've ever prepared!)

Ingredients/Materials: strawberries, dark chocolate kisses, skewers that I dyed green, and mint leaves as foliage.


:damphyr:Complete photos and detailed process of making it here in my :facebook: album.

The true believers
Thou shall be saved
Brothers and sisters, keep stronging the faith

On the day of Rockening
It's who dares, wins
You will see the jokers soon'll be the new kings

All we need is lightning
With power and light
Striking down the prophets of FALSE
As the moon is rising
Give us the sign
Now let us rise up in awe

Rock 'n Roll angels bring that Hard Rock Hallelujah
Demons and angels all in one have arrived
Rock 'n roll angels bring that Hard Rock Hallelujah
In God's creation supernatural high

Here is a one work that isn't so serious. :D (as you might have guessed by seeing these lyrics.)

I'm often thinking about people who really hate(d) rock or heavy metal (this happened especially a couple decades ago) and thought it as the music of Satan. :lmao:

I wanted to show that rock and metal is for everyone, to those who consider themself good or bad. (:

Is there God or angels? What about good and evil?
I made my own imaginative vision for the Wacom contest "Good Vs Evil".


~*~

The "Good" and "Evil" are two different forces but they actually have to work together.
Both of them have different visons what to do with the universe. This is why they play a sort of a "game" together.
When Good wins (s)he saves the earth from catastrophes for a moment but when Evil wins, the opposite happens.


The Good and Evil are in indirect contact with the world since they are not of blood and bone. they don't walk on the Earth and make their will to happen that way.
This is why you can see two puppets above the Earth in the picture - Good and Evil are like "puppet masters".
The decisions of the Good and Evil happen via other creatures: sometimes human, sometimes nature, spirits or animals.
Good and Evil can this way be in several places and forms on the Earth.


In this picture the Evil has just beaten the Good in a game and he makes a "little nuisance" to the Earth.
If you looks closely, you can see a meteor shower coming at the Earth and the Evil puppet striking a small planet out of it's orbit.
The Good seems to be a bad loser and gives the Evil a little push. :D


Attention!
The Good and Evil can be either in a form of a male OR a female. I chose the Good to be a female in this work but this does NOT mean that female couldn't be Evil or male be Good.



End of the rant. I hope this report clarified my thoughts to you. :nod: :lol:


EDIT:
Here are some closeups since it was hard to see all the details, especially the puppets

For the deviantart Merrel Diaroma contest: [link]
I originally made the deviation like this: [link] with more photos. but i found out i was only allowed to use 4 pics, so i fixed that now D:

The tree and people can be taken off and the box can be closed if it was to be sent :)
the pen in the fourth picture was only put there to show you the size of the sculptures.

-I made the owl, squirl, people, swan, waterlilys and mushrooms out of something called Fimo (polymerclay?), and painted it afterwards :)
-The tree is made of paperclay and metalstrings.
-The leaves is cut out from painted paper.
-The water was coated with varnish/laquer and nailpolish (dont know which word in english is right xD)
-the hair to the people is made of yarn, and their hats is made of some type of cloth :)
-the rocks are made of rocks.. xD

wish me luck in the contest O.o (gonna need it)
