Took a break from the askblogs to draw Benny again!
Its dead here, so have some Benny!
|Anonymous: What did you use to make Benny's head?? How are you going to finish this costume?|
Insulation foam :) It’s one of my favorite mediums to work with since it’s very dense, a dream to carve, sand.etc and incredibly light. It DOES get hot (obvious reasons) but the large size distributes the heat nicely.
The head is currently covered in Spackle to smooth imperfections. Once sanded, I will be adding layers of Gesso to give a smooth, silky finish and achieve that ‘plastic’ look. Vision will be out of his mouth via black tinted see through plastic or buckram.
Body will be made out of cardboard and will be close to the minifigure’s scale as possible. I will then fiberglass all sides to make sturdy and waterproof.. So it will be a huge costume, lol!
My apologies for the ramble you just saw. I was offended by the unneeded comment on my Unikitty, and I faught fire with fire; not good.
My apologies! It won’t happen again. I’ll thrive to keep this blog professional.
|Anonymous: Oooh lovely! I had scrolled passed that and thought that it was your sister's work, hahaa|
No way. This means so much! I love my twin’s work to death, and she is wickedly talented, so this made my night. I’m not much of an artist, so thank you!
My twin, Yowulf, is a huge inspiration to me with her style, so I decided to attempt her illustrative look! So here is Unikitty for you!
I will be posting my fanart from now on to my reblog account, Policetomeetyou, so if you like what you see, go ahead and follow! Thanks!
My twin, Yowulf, got accepted into the Artist Alley at Colossal Con and seeing that Robbie the Rabbit was my last costume, it was about time I made another one :)
Here is a very rough WIP of Benny from the Lego Movie (needs more sanding)! Costume will be true to proportions, so it will be huge. See you at CCC in Summer! More progress to come!
I got this is my submit box today, but can’t for the life of me post it up! So here it is! :)
Left is official prototype figure (Bill!). Right is mine I made last year! (Happy there are official figures now, though!) Fingers crossed the actual one will look nice and better than mine, too!
Super busy with college and day job, so my apologies for lack of progress! Here is a rough WIP of a maquette I am making for a stop motion film :) This maquette has actually been sculpted last year and put on temporary hiatus. Character designer is the talented Zakeno
Look up film updates at their tumblr! http://direfilms.tumblr.com
I needed to get back in the hang of drawing, so I drew Benny from the Lego Movie, haha!
