Welcome to the 365 project. MintIcecream and a bunch of others are also involved in this project and Mint actually came up with the idea. Everyday, you make a little project specified by a book with a theme.
My theme is Mystical Creatures. This includes dragons, griffons, unicorns, elves, trolls, dwarfs, popodawas, spirits, and many many others, but I'll probably mostly center on the more animal type creatures. Hope you enjoy my pieces, and I hope I can keep up with everything. -.-;
PROMPT: work only with the classic tangram shapes.
Thats right, I'm finally back! I made a Roc this time. Its a giant bird that ate elephants. Thats cool right? I'm really bad with shapes though. Its a problem...
I didn't want to spam my world with a bunch of days at once, so now, everyday I'll post two of the creations: one for the day and one from the time I was gone. I kept up, I just didn't have the time to post what I had done for the day.
DAY 11 PROMPT: work on the other hand. pick a medium you're comfortable with, then use your non-dominant hand-if you usually favor your right hand then only use your left and vice-versa.
This is a Mokele-Mbembe. They are a water dwelling elephant with a horn on the top of his head who attacks sea men that get too close. It also has a crocodile tail! Anyway, so...this challenge...really it was a cheat for me because I am ambidextrous. I just decided to use the opposite for what is the best for certain things. Now, you might notice it's not shaded and that is because my left hand SUCKS at shading. And look at that eye! My poor right hand has no idea what its doing! Ugh...
DAY 18 PROMPT: work with things you find in your car (or a friend's car if you don't have one).
And then I had to draw a car...mainly because my car is out at the stadium and I'm not about to walk all the way out there. Anyway, this is a hummer. I suck at drawing cars. And its supposed to be Thamuatz. What a mouthful. He is the creater of all animal life in algeria. Its a rather...colorful story. He is a cosmic buffalo cow, hence the horns. I always thought hummers reminded me of cows, so it was perfect for Thamuatz!
This is mid-terms week and I have
three four projects due, two exams, and two homework assignments. After this is spring break, so I'll catch up then. See you soon!
PROMPT: take a five-minute walk, then make something using whatever materials are available where you've ended up. leave it there for someone else to discover, but be sure to document it first!
So it snowed here all day. What a great day to have the one about making something from outside when its all covered in snow. So what is a person to do but make a snow sculpture! I took a break from programming to walk around and ended up at a residence hall on campus. There were dead twigs sticking out of the snow as well so I decided to make a very cool Lindworm.
Lindworms are serpent-like dragons with either two or no legs. In Nordic and Germanic heraldry, the lindworm looks the same as a wyvern. You can see that I decided to give it two arms and a tail. Sometimes Lindworms can be portrayed without ears or horns, but I decided that mine should have both! There are so many stories about Lindworms, you'll just have to look it up for yourself!
Prompt: Make something out of paper, but don't use scissors or glue or draw on it. What now? (And no, you don't have to know origami to do this.)
I just did something like this for day one...what are the odds?! XD Anyway, today I made a fairy cattle! They are technically nothing but ordinary deer, but the people believed that the fairies used them as cattle and that they could travel between worlds and had a higher intelligence. The more you know! Its not very good cause I kept messing with the head, but its the best I could do!
