A scene from Disney's Tangled carved into six pumpkins
phew! this took forever. About 12 hours? (i didn't time myself, I'm just guessing). I'm very pleased with the result. I've always wanted to use several jack-o-lanterns to create a scene ^_^ this is the first year i was actually brave enough to attempt it.
This is a drawing I did for the 10 Commandments of Deviousness contest, Thou Shalt Believe In Unicorns & Magic.
Unfortunatly I couldn't use our scanner so I had to photograph it.
In my opinion, Unicorns are horses with a single horn that represent purity and have healing powers. Horses themselves are just that. They are pure spirits and they have healing powers. Just think of all the therapeutic riding centers there are. They help people heal and if you have ever owned a horse you know thats the first place you want to go when you are upset, your horses stall. They are the best of friends. The all also have a cowlick right between there eyes. Just because you can't see their horn doesn't mean it's not there. They just hide it from humans
I hope you enjoy this drawing. I had a lot of fun doing it and I'm very happy with how it turned out. I just wish I could have scanned it. Once we have the scanner fixed I will scan it and swap out this one so you can see the detail better. Wish me luck!
I don't really upload anything to dA anymore.. :/ But I saw a contest and thought why not. ~~~ One uncut square each. Author: Hung Cuong Nguyen Folded By: Me Time: About 10 minutes each. Diagrams in Tanteidan Convention 15 if you want to try.
The "Un-Spooky" Original if you want to see more detail on the model itself (yeah, didn't have a yellow so edited it in) : [link]
My Mom and Dad are working on building their dream home! They have been working on rebuilding this house/yard etc a little bit at a time over the past few years. This year they finally had the means to start fully remodling the house I wanted to do a 360 degree/180 veiw of the work they have started and I will do a full finished one they are all done! This is my first panoramic shot and I have to admit this was sooo much fun. I took about 90 pictures...edited it down to about 86...I know I could do some final Photoshop tweaking on it but I kinda like this result...I think I'll leave it! After doing this I think i just may save up to buy an Isweep camera for Panoramic pictures!!
In the theme of Strange being Relative, I created this 3 Dimensional portrait of Johnny as Barnabus Collins as a Doll. Johnny Depp always seems to bring to his characters a certain soul; a little sad, but still hopeful. I attempted to create this sort of vibe in a doll, as so many of the actor's expression are very stoic, and can show so much with an expression rather than with words; Johnny's face always rang sort of doll like to me, so I thought this would be an interesting medium to bring him to life with
I created the pattern for the doll body and head, and tailored his suit from brocade, leatherette, and eco friendly felt. He stands about 18" - 19" tall and is stuffed with polyfil cotton blend. I hand sewed the fastenings on his coat and painted the shadows onto his face to contour the under-eye circles and cheekbones associated with both the character and the actor. I also hand sculpted his hands from an air dry clay, and painted them over with acrylic paints to give them depth.
"Moving In" is a diorama depicting my memories of moving to a shared house with my friends.
Why did I choose this memory? First and obvious, it occured during fall season, some years ago.
But it was brought to my mind mostly due the relation of this particular season with the Vendemnia topic.
It is a task in which a community works together, harvesting the fruits of summer and getting ready for the winter.
In this case, the fruit summer gave me was a job that allowed me to move in with my friends. The entrance into the house works as a symbolism of preparing for winter. You can see some more references to the grape harvest in the vineyard motifs of the house's grates. Community work with those people that one loves is the cornerstone of vendemnia, and of this friendship memory.
