3301 Studio-Practical

Beginning year 3 projects to continue drawing my new blueprints which involves in large-scales developments, building my models to extensive heights instead of using reused-foam from last-year. Focusing onto skeletal methods leading to searching for woodworks near the design-wing, plasterworks near reception asking technicians-Robin and Nick for advice around equipment.

  • Showing my diagrams to craft my prototypes of lion/gorilla replicas
  • Characteristics of mythical-animals within Japanese-culture
  • Experimenting Pokemon-evolutions for their large-scales to manipulate in AV-Loans workshops
  • Molded my prototypes in plaster, giving them perfect appearances
  • Smooth-trimming their outer-surface
  • Making them look mythical
  • Wooden-shaver to trim wood-surface
  • Add stronger wood with another piece
  • Wood-glue and drill together
  • Stabilise body of work without breaking-apart
  • Covered via chicken-wire, giving them appearances
  • Hessian-fabric to wrap my models dipped in plaster
  • Doodle-paint in black lines around bodies and colour-patterning
  • Almost building a familiar-model of a Trojan-Horse

Manipulating with metal-wiring is easy but with needed protection of reinforces-gloves avoiding cut/scratches carefully metal-bend these wires in several ways after another.

  • Shaping inner-structures into a creature of my imaginations, adapting to Japanese-influence
  • Gathering materials at B&Q warehouse
  • Molded all models in plaster getting them to studio, real challenge
  • Maximum 4 people to transport via trolley took a month in October

  • Sightseeing in plaster-room to manufacture my large-scale figures
  • Used dipping combinations of hessian-fabric/ceramics-powder
  • Resulted in my models weigh a ton adjustments in trimming to ease their weight
  • Measuring weighs, lengths and height of each area of my replicas
  • Mixture of bright-acrylics to doodle-paint separate slots
  • Given my prototypes dazzling appearances in evolution sharing beauty/frightening results
  • Revealing Solgaleo/Rillaboom’s characteristics
  • Setting up a theatre-background with my monsters in a gurgle-match
  • Putting up a theatre turning my studio-space into a dueling stage to two-beasts fighting for territory
  • Attached marble eyes to my gorilla
  • Reflections of Legendary-Pok√©mon and Peter-Jackson’s King-Kong
  • Codenames: Blazing-Solgaleo and Grillboom
  • Two models sharing face to face of different-oppositions

Positioned my two-alphas staring face-to-face as ancient rivalry with each of their open-spaces at floor 9/Crit-room. Audience given me feedback, they really like my animals-presence even if hunted in wildlife.

  • Manufactured animal fur/patterning supplies
  • Mounted as living-trophies
  • Focusing on Petrit-Halilaj’s role of setting a home-turf stage with desert/rainforest props.
  • Using MDF hardwood to buzz-saw them into desert/forest props
  • Setting up fire/blooming-forest via two dueling-habitats
  • Once stabilized I’d coated them in white-paint then decorated
  • Sorting my visual-props once positioned near my beasts
  • Adjusting studio-lights given them inner dimensional state
  • Opportunity of putting on a visual-theatre
  • Studying on my phase 2 “Nocturnal-Beasts” to work on Solgaleo’s counterpart Lunala representing eternal-night throughout mix-media techniques

I have always been interested in various forms of art, even from a young age. I developed my interest early on through sculpting with Blu Tack when I was eleven years old and would model figurines from films and TV programs. I had a specific interest in modelling the army of soldiers from the Lord of the Rings using Blu Tack and toothpicks for the armory and weapons. And from the film Avatar, creating Na'vi people using toothpick to create the texture and ripple effect bodies and tones.

It was in my second year at college when I decided to switch from IT & Media to Art & Design, leaving South Leicestershire College to start the B-Tech Enhanced Diploma at North Warwickshire and Hinckley College. I was granted to enter at Level 2 and worked hard to achieve two distinctions in my first year. The switch was the best decision I had made that year and it set my focus to select Fine Art at university. The only university I selected and wanted to study at was DMU, a dream come true!
