Hot-glued me a dress

I was incredibly bored last night and hot-glued together a dress for a cosplay:

Progress within the first hour or so of making this dress above. (It was about midnight when I started)


Current progress started this morning. Added the two side pieces and fitted it a little better.
I need to make a trip to Joanns next week to get material to make the collar and add the brown and gold to it.

Materials used so far:
Hi-temp hot glue gun + 3 sticks of hi-temp hot glue
2-3 yards of Vinyl fabric (Turned inside out for a not-as-shiny look)
1 foot of brown zipper

Deviantart under construction

I'm redoing a lot of my sketch on deviantart and deleting a few so my feed on here is going to go from now to tiny to huge to regular again in a few weeks. Just trying to keep in touch for a change. I'm changing "sketch of the day" to week, so I have time to keep on top of that amongst other things. I think i draw maybe three a week to I'll post the best once a week.

And again I will put out a reminder that I am taking commissions and all of the money goes to sponsoring my little sister and her school's Scottish dance team. If I can sponsor her with commission money I will be posting videos of Jenna and her team performing.

Recaps

So I sort of fell off of the side of the earth other than my deviantart postings. Well a lot and then nothing really happened. I started High School, taking on a strict magnet program and now have a tablet. Here are a few of my recent drawings on the tablet.

White Crow *Commissions* For Cyn Richardson


An attempt at frost-coated roses. (Blue because I'm cool like that)

The Doctor and River Song ^^, I will be posting this and a few others on my deviant.

I've also modeled for a cosplay shoot recently and pictures form that can be found here: http://8carpenoctem.deviantart.com/gallery/39162318

Accepting Commissions!

(A portion of the money goes to sponsoring my sister, a Scottish dancer, at Dunedin Highlander Middle School. Hoping to raise $200+ to sponsor her and a few other students.)

Now that I have a tablet I will be accepting commissions.
-Avatars (100x100 px) are $1
-Full pictures (Above) are $5

New make ups

If you follow me on deviantart, then you'll already know this but for those who don't: I've added a few more attempts at costume make up for the homestuck trolls as well as a few other things. Check 'em out ^.^ http://8carpenoctem.deviantart.com/gallery/

Troll make ups!

Now accepting commissions!

I've hit a bout of creative block, so I'm going to need some help out of it. How can you help? Simply submit a commission for me to create and send to you. This commission will be on 10x14 greeting cards and mailed to you. (No shipping fee) These drawings are only about a dollar a piece, but it's certainly worth it. I'll do original work or fan arts from any show/movie/book you want. To submit a commission request send an email to: Just plainsketchy@gmail.com

Arms

Been gone and derping around for a while but I'm back ^.^




At least you know I was geek while I was slacking. Does the robotic arm look better painted on or as the glove? I'd really like your opinions to better my cosplay

COSPLAY

I finally finished my cosplay dress for the character Marquise Mindfang from the comic homestuck. I'm very proud of this dress because I made it from this horribly tacky gold and black dress and I was able to recycle it into something better. Later if I can find it, I'll post a picture of what the dress looked like before I edited it.

sketch of the day 28 (Robotic arm)

To add on to my new-found obsession, I'm making a Vriska cosplay costume to wear to Metrocon in June.
So far I have the shirt, the horns (Courtesy of Danielle Rohter, who made them for me) and her robotic arm which is actually just a glove made to look like it's robotic. (It was also a pain in the butt to make) All that's missing is red converse, her glasses(Of which I made but lost T.T ) and a long black wig. (Will probably be posting more of the cosplay as I finish it since most of it will be handmade)

sketch of the day 27 (Homestuck fan art)

Okay so my friends have managed to get me into this comic called Homestuck. So I made a fan art pic of these two characters Vriska and Tavros. So the story goes: Vriska has a bit of a crush on Tavros, but like the psychopath she is she always winds up hurting him and eventually killing him. This picture was inspired by that even though apologizing is definetly something the character would never do.

sketch of the day 26 (Clockwork princess)

This is what happens when I finish the cursed FCAT earlier than the rest of my peers and have nothing to do but stare at a clock until the test is over. (We aren't allowed to sketch, and I'd left my book at home)

Sketch of the day 25 (Retaliation?)

A couple of homophobes both online and in reality have been pissing me off for the past few weeks so this was a way to blow off a bit of steam.

sketch of the day 24 (Tonks and Lupin)

This was an experiment on the angle. I liked how others' pictures turned out using an aerial angle so I tried it out for my own sketch. Tell me what you guys think.


On another note: My friend Sarah has started her own blog about random things that happen to her each day, pay her a visit please. http://sarahsmiles-shit-happens.blogspot.com/

Sketch of the day 14 (Actually a photo)

Gah!! I need to keep better track of this XP, I was on my school's St. Augustine trip all weekend with friends.
My sketch of the day is actually a photo, I took while on the trip. I was taking a pic of the shore and didn't realize my shadow had been caught in the shot. But it turned out pretty cool so.

This next one is a sketch I made in art a while back. A split-fcae of Harley Quiin and The Joker.



And this last one is my first attempt at a realistic sketch. The sketch is of Lilah Morgan (Also from Angel)

Easy Mediums

Everyone uses some sort a of medium to create their art. Here are a couple I find easiest to use:

1. Graphite pencils. They're almost always at your disposal and are great for black and white sketchs.

2. Sharpies. These I normally use for big projects like posters. They're great for adding color to just about anything. (Especially fun to sharpie your jeans)
3. Gel pens. For when I'm inking a sketch or free-drawing, gel pens are good for detailing.
4. Photoshop. It's great for adding minor details or completely changing the entire picture.

Sketch of the day: 8 (Cat attack!)

Okay so it's not a sketch, but videos can count as art two. I was organizing the files in my computer and came across it. This is a random comedy-type video I made in the fourth grade.
