Rocket progress by BlackRabbitArtisan
Rocket progress
I've resumed work on my Rocket Raccoon costume and finally have something reasonable to show off. His head is almost complete, I just need to add lips and tidy up his eyes. He has a working jaw too. This has been a huge learning curve as I've never made anything like this before.

I sculpted his face and slush cast in resin. The jawset I sculpted out of polyclay. The eyes are teddy bear eyes bought from Spotlight. Whiskers are horse hair nabbed from my violin bow. His markings are airbrushed. I am not happy with his ears so I'll take them off and cut them a bit shorter.

Also, sorry for the crappy phone photo! 
Uncanny X-Force The Dark Angel Saga Chapter 2 by BlackRabbitArtisan
Uncanny X-Force The Dark Angel Saga Chapter 2
Psylocke and Fantomex, Uncanny X-Force vol. 1 issue 12 cover recreation. 

Psylocke: Andrea Lim of Arcadia Rose Cosplay
Fantomex: Matthew Owen of Mudget Makes
Assistant: John Jennings of Joka Photography
Photography, editing and cover art vectoring: me

I can't get over how good Matthew and Andrea look. This was a challenging shoot on all angles. I'm still a n00b at portraiture and lighting, and this was my first studio shoot (!). The contrast of white and black costumes presented their own challenges too. Matthew and Andrea did so well, taking direction so professionally. John was a huge help, with the studio, lighting assistance, posing direction, and coat holding. Thank you for being awesome models and assistants. Whilst there are many of you that far exceed my skills I am still really proud of myself, and I totally kicked ass at all that vectoring of the cover art ha!
Happy New Year New York Style by BlackRabbitArtisan
Happy New Year New York Style
Because traditions, ya know ;) My submission for the CaptainPlanetClub Christmas/New Year contest. Die-hard fans of the series might recognise his attire (well, some of it) from a certain episode. 

Once again I had plans for a cute and fluffy submission and once again I resorted to ruining everyone's childhoods muhahaha. But who am I to break tradition ;) I haven't really arted all year except design and logo work, so I'm once again out of practice blah. Not as polished as I would really like, but eh.

oh gosh I haven't been overly active here lately, I'm sorry DX I hadn't even updated my journal entry haha oops. So, I've been pretty busy and lazy with cosplay and uni and procrastinating. I haven't done much arting the past semester, which makes me sad. I was doing more a theory based unit (and a design concepts unit, which is product packaging design stuff I was working on, but I won't bother uploading here), so I've been pretty slack with keeping up with my drawing and painting skills.

I have been busy working on cosplay and props though. I finished my Winter Soldier costume for Melbourne Supanova in April, though I'm going to be reworking the cyber arm during the summer holidays. I'll be sculpting and casting a urethane arm sleeve for that (scary but exciting). I've been working on a Captain America Stealth Suit costume for Matt, and was meant to have it done for April too, but alas it wasn't completed in time. I'm still plugging away at it though, so hopefully I'll have something to show off for all the hard work I've put into it (ughhh scratch patterning, so many panels, so much sewing). I finished Matt's costume for Oz Comic Con though - Fantomex, from Uncanny X Force which is a costume he's been wanting to do since last year. I'm pretty please with how it turned out. My AoA Nightcrawler (also X Force) didn't get finished because lycra is the spawn of the devil, but I'll also get that finished for an X Force photoshoot. I might upload some of the progress photos though in case they're helpful (eg his tail build, gloves, makeup etc). I'm now working on a Rocket Raccoon build for the Guardians of the Galaxy premier. I've got to get my butt moving on this one though because there's not much time left, and this week I've been progressing much slower than I would like. I will hopefully have some wonderful photos to share of him with the rest of the Guardians though! I also have to start getting a move on for our Assassin's Creed Unity cosplay builds, and I have some art I've been working on for genderbend designs of the Co-op characters (because yes, Ubisoft, you can create female assassins, and yes they can be badass, and no they don't need to be half naked). I'm really looking forward to debuting those for PAX and EBX later this year. 

Um, so I don't really have much else to share. I figured the journal was well overdue for updating, and I've been kind of lurking around here and only ever now and then uploading stuff. Hope everyone is well and taking care of themselves! :heart:
