birds -sculpture on canvas-

By patronus4000

Summative project for visual arts course.
January 2008. Canvas, acrylic paint, plaster.

Mm, I wasn't sure what category to put this on, but I suppose this can't be exactly a painting, so I put it in sculpture. -shrugs-

This looks cooler in real life, since you can actually see the 3D shapes better, but I tried to capture it in the secondary photo. Basically, I used plaster to build up the shapes of the birds (using more plaster for the objects in front to create a sense of perspective) on a canvas, and painted over the outlines with acrylic paint. This was more of an experimental piece than anything, but it turned out pretty well.

I think it turned out pretty awesome ( the sculpture) but since i'm more of a photography fan, i'll comment on the second photograph and say that it looks pretty cool. I love the lighting and tones in that picture, well done =)

That looks great! I love it when people do textures/3D art on canvas. It's so much more interesting.

i like 3D art on canvas too, since i have seen some art students at my school do it over the years. that's why i decided to try it myself. ^^
