I Spy by BlackRabbitArtisan
I Spy
Personal photography project, playing around with my new extension tube for some super macro, and enjoying the last of the sunny weather. I had been pruning around the deck area when I spotted this little dude clinging to the side of the dogs' water bowl. It was a rather tricky exercise, as mantids will sway when you approach, and have a habit of trying to move away from the giant lens in their face, combined with the additional challenge of zoom exaggerating even the slightest of motions, and manual focusing. So, with those in mind I'm really quite happy with the photograph.

Iddy Biddy Spider
Personal photography project, playing around with my new extension tube for some super macro, and enjoying the last of the sunny weather. As I was laying in the grass in the backyard I spotted this tiny little dude. I only noticed he was nomming a fly treat during post. For scale reference, spidey is ~1-2mm.

Tea Type 2 by BlackRabbitArtisan
Tea Type 2
Created for a typography project for uni, in which we had to represent a chosen sense using type only. We had to select an appropriate typeface, and could use words or letters. I used Gill Sans, which I modified slightly to make it more organic, and my chosen sense is smell. I utilised tea leaves, which are aromatic, and for myself I derive more pleasure from the aroma of tea than the taste. I selected the letter 'g' for its aesthetic appeal. 

I also created one using positive space:

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:
