*few* In before the deadline - I think! The contest folder is still open- so that's a PLUS! <3
My entry for the Tomb Raider: Reborn contest held by dA~ [link]
I know my entry isn't amazing- especially in comparison to some of these BEAUTIFUL entries - but I thought I'd challenge myself! This was heavily inspired by Drew Struzan! <3 My hero when it comes to poster art~ (google him if you don't know him- you'll know his work INSTANTLY)!
A lot of thought went into this-- (it may not be obvious)- but I'm curious if anyone will pick up those ideas~ ;D
Well here it is, my last sculpture entry for the Okami contest. I didnt sleep at all haha. I was on auto-pilot all night working into the wee morning . Well lets start with measurements:
Amaterasu: 5 inches long Sakuya: 6 ½ inches tall Bloomed Sapling: 18 inches tall, 18.5 inches wide, 12 inches deep
Amaterasu was a generic wolf I found in my box-o-toys that I modified a bit with Super Sculpey. Saved me some time from sculpting ^_^. The reflector is made with Super Sculpey and the fire was made with hot glue.
Sakuya was scratch built with Super Sculpey with aluminum foil armature The leaves in her hair and the cloud sash are made from foam sheet.
The sapling was made with celluclay (instant paper mache) also with aluminum foil armature. The blossoms are made from foam sheets.
Everything was hand painted. I tried to get the sumi-e style to translate to the sculptures as best as I could. I started this project almost right after I finished my Amaterasu Warrior figure [link] and it took me about 2 days to finish it. I had a series of these sculpture projects in mind awhile back and this contest kind of pushed me to at least do one. I dont think I have it in me to rush the other projects I had in mind before the deadline. Ill make those later when Im ready to tackle them but for now, I hope you enjoy this one. Thanks for looking! Have a great day and GOODNIGHT! LOL! ^_^
My little entry for the "draw this again" contest! c:
I don't know about you, but there should be some improvement there, hehe. I remember I was so proud of the older version when I finished it. It had like, meaning and stuff.. and colours! I even recorded it, and made a speedpaint video! [link] gosh I loved it, but after I switched accounts and two years passed I saw so many mistakes, so here I am drawing it again! This time (just for fun) I actually also recorded it... or so I thought... something is wrong with the file so it's gone. but I really wanted to show you how I drew it this time! but oh well...
I spent a lot of the day doing Lara studies that will eventually go toward a more polished environmental piece for the contest. This was the last sketch I did today and I ended up really liking the simplicity of it.
