this is really well done...and honestly I'm not really a star wars fan...but i LOVE chewy lol, if that makes sense. Art is actually a weird thing...if i take and art image, and redo it in a different medium as long as my name is on it i can sell it as my own...or with telling people who the original was done by. for art class we had to go to the net and find a pic we liked change it to into a cross hatch drawing and then do all the other steps to make it into a print. because we changed whatever art we chose into a different style it now becomes ours, its not the same as a direct copy. I'm not sure about tracing their exact image though...but i was taught to believe that was cheating unless its your own image but that's just how art teachers are. maybe if you looked at the image and drew it free hand it'd turn out even better anyway. my friends in that class had to have me draw theirs out because they couldn't, sometimes its hard to get the proportions correct. Though i can understand not doing it for other reasons you could always pick your favourite movie or images and change them to that style. theres no harm letting them influence you like that.
*sorry to keep rambling like this i just looked up the art work and i was just wondering, do you know how it was done? is it just an ink drawing? its in a series like a print would be so maybe it was done the old fashioned way but i dont see any indent around the paper that would let me know it was done with the press like prints are.
Ive always loved your dolls, i creeped on your website at all the ones in your gallery and the ones in your shop how do you attach the hair to them? I also have an appreciation to the fact that you hand sew them all, everything I've done is hand sewn to so i understand the time that has to go into them all.
i think they'd probably look really nice in the wired wrapped jewlery i see all over the place. maybe bracelets or necklaces. ill have to grab some marbles from the dollar store when im out, you can always get a good sized bag from there.
i like how yours turned out i like the sash on the left one, how it looks like it was sewn on, but i think i like the one on the right even more. im jealous of the shine yours got. can i ask what glaze you used on them? i have a varathane that ive tried using and it makes my things quite shiney but because the hearts i had made with a powder colouring it would come of ever so slightly after baking so i didnt want to brush a glaze on them incase the colour might smudge together a bit more than i'd like.
I really love how this turned out, Ive been wanting to try doing something like this for a bit now, but i think i want a bit more practice with the clay before i do it. Ive seen tutorials for this done a few ways, one with the iron on transfer sheets, one with a photo copy, and one with a laser printer image but I'm still a bit nervous to try it. To find alot of the info about doing it you just have to google transfer image to polymer clay and you should find alot of the tutorials i had found a while ago, maybe more by now.
thankyou i really liked working with the..almost gears...lol they're not actually gears i got them from the hardware store for like 5 cents each i think they had them marked as some kinda washer or something like that. i wanted to try working with gears like a lot of people have been lately, but i was kinda iffy about buying the big bag i saw on eBay because it was about 30$, though I'm sure it would be money well spent. I'm thinking of getting a watch from the dollar store, and taking it apart to see all the different parts id get from that
Yeah, they're just normal bobby pins. i know you can get ones with a round flat spot at the end so you can glue stuff to, but my glue is really strong. i tried to break one off of a set i didn't really care for, to see it if was going to just break, and i couldn't so i don't feel i need to buy those ones. i put an indent on the back of the piece of polymer clay before i baked it(by pushing the pin into it) so the pin is a bit set in, i think that's what made it extra sturdy, rather than having a flat bottom to the piece and trying to glue it to the curved end.
while i am bothered by the action movie aspect, I'm more bothered by the fact they say the woman is a thief, when shes not...its the woman from the scandal of Bohemia, they say shes a thief, unmarried and she ends up helping the bad guy, while she ends up wanting out of the bad circumstance she is still kinda a bad person considering the new history they give her. that's not who shes meant to be in any way. there's a lot of other things they've changed as well i hear, but i think id rather just stick with the older ones that follow everything a lot better. I'm all for them coming up with a new story, but if they used another character rather than one we already know, i think it would've been better, and maybe following a few other aspects more closely. i do expect them to update things though, a bunch of people want all the movies to have a lot more of the kinda excitement that explosions and things have...its kinda like hitchcock, if they redid it I'm sure they would make it quite different than it was originally done. i wish they wouldn't do so many remakes though, they re redoing the lethal weapons now too...and they did true grit, with Matt Damon of all people sorry for the long ramble, i just think they change classics way too often
