On deviantART I was running a short offer to draw people’s sculptures with my character Egghead Girl, for free. One dude by the name of BassoeG took me up on my offer and asked me to draw some of his sculpted works. I was glad to, and I gave him two pieces.

 

This is the 2nd of those two pieces, with his Gastropod Brazier Candle. This was more fun to draw as I had a larger object to draw in relation to Egghead Girl, and it had some different texturing that I got to add. I also went a bit more open with Egghead Girl’s attitude, letting her do a more showy pose alongside it (varied pose, hiked skirts, etc).

 

Overall this was a fun thing to work on, and I’d love to give more sculptures from other artists this treatments if they’re willing to give me a shot.

This is the first of the two, with Egghead girl posing with this ceramic work known as Castle Molar. It’s pretty much a ceramic glazed castle with the towers looking like teeth more or less. You can check it out in the hyperlinked name earlier.

 

I’ll post the 2nd one tomorrow.

This requires a small bit of a story, but I was recently inspired to do my higher-detailed style on an art piece that came to mind.

 

Several years ago at Animazement 2009, I had ran into someone who was donning a cosplay I had made for a friend. This someone and I hung out for a bit, before I parted ways to head back home that day. What they didn’t know at the time was that I had a bad day, and hanging out with a familiar face + getting to see a cosplay I worked on in use made my day.

 

Since then, I’ve been wanting to draw said person as a sort of thank-you, but never thought I’d be able to pull it off properly. I had tried on paper a few times in the first couple years,  and kind of forgot about it once I hit ETSU. Going down memory lane again I realized that it was better late than never, especially since people were actually commissioning me for art.

 

So thank you, Kendall. You left a positive memory with me that stuck almost 10 years later. I don’t know where you are now to get ahold of you, but maybe you’ll run across this in the future one of these days.

On an artist’s note, I’m real happy with how this piece turned out. I did this completely with my Intuos, which was a shocker to me; usually I only get these near-realistic proportions when drawing with my Cintiq. So this was a pause and gawk going, “Huh, I pulled it off.”

This was an art piece that was supposed to get done near Christmas, but got delayed for various reasons. However, I’ve had doodled a connection I knew back in 2017, specifically drawing her with attire from the Janus Fairytale setting. I took this a step further and wanted to do a “mystery” piece to give as a gift for the holidays. Despite being late, I finally got this done either rate!

 

I was real happy with the background and the lighting, it’s been a bit since I did something that was foreboding but not directly spooky.

 

You can check out said connection, who’s name is Sandra Shuman! She does art coaching stuff and does a lot of interesting things. Do check her out here.
