DOWNLOAD FOR FULLVIEW, big image (3500x4500) Finally ;w; Thats my entrie for the Tomb Raider Reborn contest Thats the best work I have ever done! I have veery difficulty drawing humans, but I really tried to do my best Oh man, Tomb Raider was my first game when my parents gave me my first videogame hahah drawing Lara Croft was awesome!
I made it in 5 days (+- 25 hours) using PaintTool SAI only and photoshop for the filters. I know that its REALLY hard to me to be one of the semi-finalists but I still have hope
I chose Quetzalcoatl since the contest has already got tons of gryphons, dragons and horse-based fantasy creatures :P I've always wanted to make my own version of this deity and this was the perfect time to do so! I hope you like it, and don't forget to vote for this tee if you like the design!
The gift I would give if I could give it: The gift of time.
To whom would I give this gift and why: I would give "time" to my father who only now towards the end of his life his discovered a career he loves after a lifetime of work in jobs he didn't enjoy.
How this piece was created: Each art doll is completely handmade and is "one of a kind" and can be posed. Both have been created on a handmade wire armature and can be posed into different positions. The mammoths head, tusks, nose and feet have been hand sculpted on an internal wire armature. The body has been hand sewn stitch by stitch using faux(fake) fur over the armature, the clay extremities have been carefully hand painted before individual hairs have been attached for detail.
What was used: wire, cotton wadding, needle and string, faux fur, sculpey clay, acrylic paint, clear gloss, craft glue, camera, tweezers, wooden twig, a camera and Adobe Photoshop.
Notes: I wanted to depict "time" in both that the creatures are based on the extinct mammoths and the fact its an adult and child. It could be that its an an adults with offspring or that the adult is regarding its younger self.
I do not use patterns, casts, molds or references to create my work, this is a unique display sculpture.
