142  Eagle Owl in oil pastel in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by maxxev on: December 01, 2009 07:13:52 AM
this is one of my most recant pieces. its not a particularly large piece (just over 7/8 inches) but im kinda proud of how it turn out Smiley

i've included a magnified shot of the part of the picture to try to show both the detail in the actual artwork and hopefully give an idea of my techniques. This is about 3 times the size of the original art work.
my camera has a real problem with darker shades hence most of the greens in the background in the picture above have disappeared Roll Eyes
The pastels are a mix of faber castells and a few derwnet ones.

im still relatively  new both as an artist and to oil pastels as a medium so any comments or advice is more than welcome

143  Pheonix T shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by maxxev on: December 01, 2009 01:48:10 AM
i made this as part of my brothers christmas present this year.
The image is one i designed based on a persian miniature. i made the stencil from thin plasticard....thoug h i admit since this was my first ever attempt and i was so convinced that the fabric paint was just going to seep under the edges but it was surprisingly well behaved! (i used the 'pebeo' iron set fabric paint in gold)

the pheonix...

the t shirt...just to show the size of the design (i didn't want it too big)

comments or advice are more than welcome! Smiley

144  The Ravens in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by maxxev on: December 01, 2009 01:07:40 AM
A little late for halloween but i'd had enough of marbled baubles Wink

i'd had the design hanging around in a sketch book for ages. Its painted onto premade bisque in black underglaze which was then dipped in clear glaze.

The plate..

detail shot.

The mugs...the writing around the inside of the rim is of course 'quoth the raven Nevermore'

marbled blue and white (i loved the colours so much i did a fair few of these!  Wink)

red, green and white

black and white (i varied the technique here using my fingers to smear and mix the colours...the key is DONT over mix Wink )

black, white and red

more controlled marbled technique..

146  my first pinch pots in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by maxxev on: November 04, 2009 09:57:46 AM
just enrolled in a ceramics class. these are my first pinch pots...i've never worked with raw clay before so try not to laugh too hard. Wink

my first ever attempt...its wonky as anything but i love the colour the glaze turn out, its so warm, almost alive..like amber.

my 'chicken' pot.

any comments (or advice!) are more than welcome.
