A 2D Practice and Needle Felting...

Having a go at improving on my 2D painting and shading skills.

My first attempt at the very stabby and adorable needle felt craft. You can see my plastered fingers in the background, but he was worth it. It's based off an adorable rabbit character called Molang, you can see the tutorial video here. Please excuse the terrible picture quality, there will be nicer images eventually :P

'Curiosity' Illustration...

Here's an illustration I made called 'Curiosity'. Everything's been super busy recently and it's just starting to settle a little, so I thought I'd put this together while I had the time :)

2 Birthday Presents!..

I've been making things!

Firstly, I was lucky enough to be commissioned to make another Hare as a birthday gift for a customer. Here she is in her new home:

The other present was for Jon's birthday. I wanted to try and make a figure of his engineer illustration:

Here are the results:

I'm pretty chuffed with how she turned out and I think he liked her too!

Onwards! :D

The White Hare: Adventures at ToyCon...

ToyCon was amazing! It was so great to get to meet everyone I'd been speaking to online for so long and they were all super lovely. There was some great and not so great news on my Hare. She sold within the first 5 minutes (which is amazing), but the person that bought her then proceeded to break her legs and return her (not amazing). The wonderful Richard of UME toys supplied some emergency glue and she got to go back on display, but she may have a new home yet! :)

Here are all the pictures of her I have, I was a too excited and forgot to take photos on the day but you can just see her in the cabinet here.

Here's hoping I'll have a few more pieces there next year! ;P

The White Hare Revealed!..

"The most famous belief about white hares in Cornwall is that they are the spirits of girls who had been deserted by their lovers; as a result of which the girls died broken-hearted due to grief. Thus, with their spirit being unable to rest, they chose the form of a white hare in which to return and haunt their deserters. In this guise they are invisible to all except the one who jilted them, and they will haunt him until he finally dies."

She started out as one of these, I then added Super Sculpey, faux fur and painted glass cabochons. The eyes were a real labour of love, they feel like you're painting backwards!

I'll upload more pictures after the weekend when I know it's okay, but if you want to see the rest of the artists taking part (and you should :P) you can see them all here.

So excited for Saturday it's ridiculous! :D

'Rarity' CG Illustration...

A bit of CG work for fun, an illustration based on Rarity from My Little Pony 'cause she's so darn pretty.

The body, head and horn is 3D and her hair, eyes, noes and mouth, diamonds and horn spirals are all planes. I really enjoyed combining the two and it's definitely something I'll try out again soon.

Also, only 5 days until the White Hare is revealed! :D

Speed Paint Practice...

The first in a while but they're not awful. I gave them both just over an hour and guessed the colours myself, but I really struggled with Carey Mulligan's face. I'll keep at it though so more soon!

Oh, and I loved Drive. It was excellent! :D

A New Illustration...

An illustration I've been working on. She's based on wooden peg-style dolls and I think I'll develop her further, but this is her for now.

On a sillier note, here are some Lego Batman Lavender bags and a moustached cuddly thing:


Aren't they fun ? :P
