|This was an art piece done for my final in observational drawing. OK...So: It was supposed to be a drawing, which I took to another level. Unintentionally. It was my first time ever working with this material and in 3D.|
The drawing was done by observation, then traced (as a back up). I then cut each piece and traced with permanent marker over sanded aluminum. I used a cutter attachment to a compressor to cut the traced pieces out. I also used it to trim my presentation background, which came from a left over metal gate piece. I used drill bits for the small holes, and engraver for the outlining of some of the details. I also used a small amount of a 0.4mm Superfine India ink pen for design and also permanent marker. Two different colored spray paints were used. One for the background and the second used with a sponge paint brush to give some highlights throughout. A hot glue gun was used for the jewels and wire (cut from ear buds and spray painted). All the rest of the materials used came from a box of random pieces left over from working on cars. It took me about 18 hours to complete from start to finish with no breaks included in the time. I have to admit I had loads of fun creating it and would very much love to do it again!
Here's hoping you enjoy it. It is up for sale if anyone is interested!
