Mephit by *snuurg is one of the many creatures in this fantasic scupltors gallery. This little guy looks lonely and could use some friends. He's sad because he's different, but in the art world, different is beautiful. written with assitance from *drailed ( Featured by mirrorkills )

can i know how you make the eye..??
Reply
:iconsnuurg:
snuurg Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2005  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
- yup - I generally work from a piece of perspex or acrylic: if I'm lucky I can usually manage to get my mitts on some rod-perspex that's of more or less the right diameter for the eye I'm going to make, which saves about half a job; otherwise though, I basically grind down the perspex (usually on a disc-sander) to get the shape/size of the eye I need, making a hemisphere at the end of the piece of perspex I'm dealing with. Then I'll work on it with finer and finer grades of emery-paper until it has a smooth surface, at which point I'll hacksaw it away from the main piece. Then, flatten the back and sand that down in the same way - either taking it to a full polish, or otherwise short-cutting things a bit by simply varnishing the flat surface.

Once that's ready, paint the eye-colours onto the flat side in reverse order (i.e. pupil first, actual eye-colour last - like you might do for example when painting in an animation cel or similar) - and then when everything's dry stick it into your model - again adding that extra bit of lustre to the eye with a bit of varnish once it's all in place and the rest of the figure's painted.

...at some point I'll actually get around to making some sort of demo-thing about these processes, but it's not about to be any time soon unfortunately...

...hmm, have to admit, that's a new title to me, I'll have to go look it up and see - but in any case I guess he does owe some of his physiognomy to goblinism (pardon?), among other things - thanks for looking in, anyway, glad you like the little fella!
