My teachers are not giving me a break any time soon. It's just projects and essays and assignments back to back, occupying my days...
So sadly I have no art to post despite how badly I wanted to. Instead, I shall show off a little personal project that took like three days of work: my Enchiridion replica!
It looks like the hero's handbook from Adventure Time, but on the inside, it's notebook paper. That's because I used a medium-sized composition notebook I got from Office Max. I covered it in brown construction paper, painted it with some really cheap paints, added some raised features (the gray parts, spine binding, the center circle, and the sword) out of thin cardboard, repainted it with nicer paints and added details, added more details with a Sharpie, and lastly distressed the edge with some safety scissors. I did my best to replicate every last detail from the concept art, and if you compare them side-by-side it's actually very very close. It was only three days work, after all.
Even though it was a lot of work, it wasn't very hard for me. The toughest part was probably gluing down the binding on the spine (it looks really bad I know), but it was mostly just painting from observation. Projects like my Majora's Mask were a lot tougher because it involved working with plaster and fancy stuff like that, and with this gluing construction paper to cardboard was as fancy as it got. But knowing that a project like this isn't so hard makes me feel really confident in my abilities to make more replicas. They seem to really impress people!
Hope you guys like it!
