Night and light: two as one

This is my first entry for the discover your duo contest! I really love the how to train your dragon movies the story it's wonderful and the design for the dragons is so amazing and creative so I'm really happy I made it in time to join this contest :heart:

My duo for this piece was light fury and night fury ;) I chose this duo because I love the interactions between these two and it looks like I'm not the only one because I've seen tons of other entries about them! But there is another duo that I love so I hope I can make another entry before the end of the month I will make sure to work really hard :)

Since I usually make abstract craft and  decorations gluing recycled objects  I was unsure how I could enter this challenge but I started to carefully analize their design and select my materials: I wanted to use a black and white palette to divide their face and recreate their main facial features mostly the little horns and the overall shape then I drew traditionally their eyes ( I used colored pens )  and I decorated them with gold leaf and glitter. :D

The other materials for this work are buttons, clay, polystirene, hairclips, paper, cloth, fake feathers, paint, plastic, forks, paper clips, pens, foam, seashells, ribbons, wadding, bottle caps, screws, lace, hot glue pieces from headphons, hair brushes, calculators, sponges and packagings.

This work is 27x22x5 cm and it's the biggest work I've ever made but creating it was so challenging and fun!

Ah this is cool! It's really cool how you used recycled material to create this - it adds so many interesting elements :) makes me think of all the possibilities of the trash I throw away now :' Given how large it is I can imagine how cool this would look hanging on a wall :)

Thank you for your comment! I always try to keep broken objects I can reuse on my craft like headphones or calculator because they have so many beautifully shaped parts :)

You're welcome :love: it's interesting how you see merit in these various broken things :)
