21  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Gollum (Lord of the Rings) on: February 12, 2013 12:46:58 AM

Gollum had been part of a cosplay competition I joined with a friend. He had been made last year in October, but I have forgotten to upload him.

I think in some cases he looks too cute, but yeah he had been our baby :3 ... of Rosie and me :3

22  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / ATC Adventure Book Tutorial on: February 11, 2013 03:27:22 PM

After the DD I received on DeviantArt for the big brother of this tutorial I thought it would be interesting to make a 2nd generation tutorial in this case for a special ATC Adventure Book Tutorial.

It really made fun, cause I have changed some parts a bit.

23  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Paris Book Impressions on: February 02, 2013 09:18:43 AM

I have made another book alternation and also took some pictures while I cutted it :3

So for your book you need an old book, paper and a knife ...
but please be careful , when you are working with the knife.

First you cut a paper to the same size of the book pages.

When you are done with it, you can draw on the paper what
you want to cut out of the book at the end.

Because I like Paris I decided to draw the Eiffel Tower
and one of the typical lamps next to it.

Now it is time to start. First you need to cut a border befor you
start with your picture. This border can be about 4-6 pages.

When you are done with it, you can put your drawn picture into
the book and start cutting the different pieces. I have started with
the lamp and afterwards cut the Eiffel Tower.

In some cases you can also draw the part of the pictures you want
to cut again on the  book pages. In this way it is easier to cut it,
especially when you already cutted several pages.

When you made this carfull and with patience there will be a
fantastic cutted impression of a book.

This had been an experiment I normally made for a contest, but I thought it hadn't been good enough so I tried something else.

Now 1 month later I am happy how it turned out and wanna it to you in this way ... I think next time I gonna take some pictures how I made it.

how do you use salt with watercolors? i also wondered what brand of pencils you use. i just got a set of derwent inktense pencils and the color is much deeper and i really like them.

Derwent Inktense Pencils are fantastic, but so expensive here in Germany. I have got a combination of Faber Castell and Mondulez Watercolor Pencils and also use Stabilo Watercolor Pencils ... although Stabilo isn't that good than the others.

The salt technique is very simple. I use lots of water on the drawing and then put some salt on it ... there are amazing effects at the end ... but I think it work with normal watercolors only and not with watercolor pencils.

I had been ask how I made the cards, which is honestly difficult to show, because I work very fast when I have started and don't take pictures while I am working.

Everything starts with the linart:

I sometimes draw using pencil, but in some cases also using ballpoint pens and others. At the moment I prefer using references, so in this way I also wanna train myself with drawing and motivating. Also I am testing papers I have taken from one of our craft stores, because I think that some of my cards look bad because of the paper I am using.

When I am done with the lineart I normally scan it, so if I fail I am gonna be able to draw it again.

For coloring I normally use watercolors, mainly White Nights and Schmincke Watercolors (I think Schmincke is typical German). I use bigger and smaller brushes and tons of water, in some cases also salt. At the end I set some highlights using a white gel pen and in some cases watercolor pencils.


27  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Young Love on: January 26, 2013 05:57:12 PM

I am still totally surprised that I got the chance to be under the Best of 2012 Artist here on Craftser ... so amazing and ... unbelievable.

I think 2013 might start well in this case. So I want to show the 2 first cards of my 2013 101 Theme Challenge. I really hope I am gonna be finished all 101 cards at the end of 2013

The topic of these 2 cards had been "Young Love", although it is a good combination to my Paris Card I did for the challenge last year.

So lets see what 2013 will bring to us :3

28  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / Adventure Book Tutorial - UP Pixar (Part I) on: September 16, 2012 01:36:41 AM

I have been asked on DeviantART several times how I have made the Adventure Book for my Ellie Costume from the Pixar Animation Movie UP.

Because it is the 30. birthday of my cousin this Tuesday I thought it would be a good idea to make her a small Adventure Book about all the adventures we had, when we were small.

So I used this opportunity and took some photos to prepare this tutorial.

Because I started with the tutorial at 1 am in the morning it is separated into two parts made on Saturday and Sunday.

I really hope you will enjoy it and will also wait for the 2nd part.

Next part later.

If you need a larger version of the Tutorial, please inform me.
