Art project Ocean/Horror theme [WIP] part 4

Art project Ocean/Horror theme [WIP] part 4

Today I have just finished my development sample, based on my previous sample design project work. The design is based on a jellyfish species known as a Moon Jellyfish, which I thought would be an excellent inspiration to create a plastic version of the species. 

To create this sample I’ve used the following materials:

  • 2L drinking bottle
  • Marker pens (black, dark blue and light blue)
  • Small pliers 


The design is based on three visual imagery related to pollution in the sea, 1) the shape represents the jellyfish as well as marine life in the sea, 2) encased in a plastic bottle, this represents plastic waste that’s been dumped into the sea and finally 3) a skull represents death to marine life that are sadly entrapped and killed by pollution waste.

This project is nearly at an end, as I’m now currently planning my final design to realise my project in its final 3D form. 

Thanks for reading, and I hope to see you guys next time in part 5! 🙂

Today I wanted to share a few photos of my current art project, which is based on the theme of ocean and horror. The sample designs are influenced by various artists including H.R. Giger, Francis Bacon and John Blanche.

Enjoy!

This week I went on a trip to Hull to collect some primary and secondary sources for my course work. I’ve visited three places in order to collect these requirements, the first being The Deep.

I thought I might share (a lot of) photos of the day I went to The Deep in Hull. Enjoy!

[warning: some images my upset some viewers, as well as those who don’t like fish]

Aquarium coral, bones and other items

First we were shown items which was kindly displayed for photography and for visual sketching. 


The main attraction

As expected, I went around the main attraction to take photos of aquarium life. There was a surprisingly a lot of sea life to look at, including my personal favourite, a wall lodged with fossils.

What’s coming up in 2017!

What’s coming up in 2017!

A bit late for hobby resolutions, but I plan these things before I make any concrete decisions. 2016 was a year of challenges for me, from keeping consistent with my course work, to deciding who to vote for in the EU Referendum, pushing my hobby skills to another level and finally, getting as much table top hobby time as I can.

I’ll be posting the best of 2016 from archive blog posts that I think were the best from last year. This will be up at some point next week.

So whats my plans for 2017? Well most of it is table top hobby related tasks, mixed with other stuff that I want to try out. Below is a list of what will be coming for this year:

  1. Finishing off my Flesh-Eater Courts army, including more Crypt Ghouls (human/Duardin/elves/Skaven) Crypt Flayers, kit bashing Varghulf, more Ogres and Morghast Archai.
  2. Build my Grand Alliance of order, consisting of; Stormcast Eternals (using Hammer and Anvil battalion) and Fyreslayers (either Lords of the lodge or Subterranean Fyrestorm battalions).
  3. Completing my Grand Alliance of Chaos, with my Nurgle force needing a few units of Blightkings, Chaos warriors and Daemons of Nurgle stater set.
  4. Communicating with the hobby community more, by commenting other bloggers posts that I like, and joining in discussion groups to contribute to the hobby.
  5. Discovering new styles and mediums in art projects, developing new designs that’s not in my comfort zone.
  6. Telling the rest of the path to glory campagin story of the battles between Clan Skelnix, and the Whitebark Clan.
  7. If the dark elves have a new release, I’ll be rebasing and painting my entire collection if I find the new lore for the faction to be satisfying.
  8. Painting Skaven model inbetween hobby projects.

Hopefully at least a few of these will be completed by the end of this year. But for now, its small steps at a time.

    I hope you guys have enjoyed this post. If you have any questions, post a comment below and I’ll reply back as soon as I can. Thanks!

    Flesh-Eater Courts: Liverbone court army [31/12/16]

    Flesh-Eater Courts: Liverbone court army [31/12/16]

    Things are slowly getting back to normal (well almost…) now that my winter bug has gone for good. With joyous delight I’ve started to build up my court with additional model from the ‘start collecting’ battalion for the Flesh-Eater Courts.

    The collection is currently in work in progress, mainly because I don’t have my second battleline for a full 1,000pt army to play. Therefore, once I’ve added additional units of Crypt ghouls into the army I’ll be happy enough to use it in AOS games.

    Collection so far:

    Ghoul king on Terrorgheist

    The rumour of King Rens rise to dominance

    King Ren of the Liverbone court rides upon his Behemoth to war against any who dares enter his land without trade of diplomacy (basically, trading human cattle for enterance and a truce). He was called Ren Ashtheon in the Age of Myth, who once ruled a small kingdom in Aqshy until the Age of Chaos arrived. Escaping  with his life, the king was lost on the wastelands for days, months even years. He feasted on his own kin to survive and journey on in the never ending realm, until he met a dying Ghoul from an aftermath of a battle that took place not too long ago. The Ghoul king blessed him with his sickly black magic, ascending the Ren to a true Ghoul king. With his apotheosis and delusional thirst for battle, he was henceforth known as Ren Liverbone, and amassed an army ready for war to take back his kingdom from Chaos.

    The Terrorgheist is still a work in progress on painting the model, but looks impressive so far. Once the Terrorgheist is completed, I’ll be painting the Ghoul king separately to avoid complication. He’ll be riding the behemoth to war as my general for the army, for both pitched battles and path to glory campagin. 

    Ghoul king (Sychophant)
    The second ghoul king is a metal model from the undead Bloodbowl team. The model is nearly complete with only the base to be decorated for the final touch.

    Crypt Haunters and Crypt Infernal Coutiers
    The Crypt Haunters are slightly altered to have their heads be similar to the Ogre ghouls, showing a dramatical change from their hefty big size to a thin body with bones sprouting out. I like how the Haunters look a lot more untaural for their faces being Ogre like with thin bodies that looks deformed from years of depraved feasting on the battle field. The Infernal is nothing new, apart from a bit of an alteration to fit the small wings on its shoulders ( I’ve kinda made the wrong model body for the Infernal, but my creative skills did its best at making an Infernal anyway).
    Crypt Ghouls and Crypt Ghast Courtiers
    The first set of ten Crypt ghoul models were made into a unit of six, and two Crypt Ghast Courtiers. There’s another unit ten Ghouls to assemble for the first of three units. Hopefully I’ll be able to make unit of thirty Ghouls to get the most out of their attacks.

    Crypt Horrors
    These were shown in a previous post not too long ago, now in progress of being painted in the colours of death! (Que over dramatic drum beat). The unit leader is already completed and looking gruesome from his bloodsoaked mutated hands. The rest will be done after painting my Terrorgheist, outcoming in a full unit of six models of Crypt Horrors that’ll feast on my opponents infantry for supper (no matter wether its flesh, rotten flesh, bones, bark or warp forms).

    I hope you guys have enjoyed this post, and hope you all have a happy new year! ☺
