Welcome to the little corner of my own personal projects! Here can be foun various sculptures, paintings and other experimental art I decide to try.
Select a thread down below and enjoy as I show you the process of my work :)
I did not want him strictly gold. which gold color would do. So I opted for the "shimmering" paint which essentially means that the pigmnents only show up under certain angles. in this cae gold. For that the base needed to be prepainted and color structures as I wanted.
Also it's worth noting that shimmering pigments show up almost like normal paint on black and dark background. On while or light background it's nearly unseen until it reflects light and the reflected part is the color of the shimmer pigment. in this case it worked great :)
So the idea here was a golden bird that guards the treasure. Kinda took thunderbird from harry potter as an inspiration for this one cause I really loved the golden shimmer on the feather and wanted to make something similar :)
well, here we are with another experimental thing. since I can't use the resin as watter on a large scale like here and always having those layer visible if I do it in layers, I'll be atempting to do it with gel wax insted :)
somehow I let him sit without the flames for so so long. Maybe I was dreading the fire making quite a lot and that made me hesitate. but eventually he was finished so here is his fire-y butt finally :D
I wasn't sure about the brightness of the stripes at first so I started with something duller. however that worked out in the end as it alowed me to gradually build up the pattern so it's not even all over the place
plenty of red for the underwing I decided. as for the stripes I just decided to wing it and see where it goes how it goes. I had a general idea of what I want and was half tempted to make them gold, but eventually setteled on just regular acrylic color.
Not intentinally I have discovered how I could make pretty nice looking scars. Just make the sculpt out of bright fleshy clay and then one very thin laer of the desired color of skin. Steap 2? Take a knife and stab the shit out him! XD At random Eldsay suggested to put the arrows through the wings so I figured why not :)
since I myself am not much of a history fan I have left the job of creating a medieval war machine to my brother. It came out looking really great in the end even if it was just the first try and going on nothing but a few internet images. It's even functional!
I'm really happy how clean the edges on the painted surface came out on this one. the masking tape worked beautifually here and the gold adds just the right accents at the edges. I'm also quite satisfied with the look of the batkitty emblem.
