April 2019 Fantasy Sci-Fi Challenge
 
GUIDELINES:
On the first of each month a subject, concept or idea will be posted in a thread entitled Fantasy Science Fiction Monthly Challenge and Chat.

All entries must be new original artworks for this challenge in any style or genre of Fantasy or Science Fiction done in any medium, 2D or 3D.
Join in the discussion about the project - it's friendly and fun to learn how others are coping/struggling/thriving!!! But no visual images! Help can be gained from asking but also from looking for resource materials elsewhere such as the Reference Image Library or best of all your own wonderful imagination!
A 'reveal' date for all is 21th of the month, feel free to post till the end of the month, then a new Challenge will be posted.

Please post the finished artwork on this thread at that time.

Battle of the Elements

This great challenge was suggested by Vanity.

Battle of the elements? Like fighting each other?

Oh my... I already have an idea in mind, Michelle ! ^^

No problem, Virginia. Looking forward to seeing other folks' work !

SunFace, you can interpret it in many different ways :) It does not have to necessarily involve the elementals fighting.

I have mine done already! I had an idea last night and went with it. :)

We had an interesting thunder lightning show last night. The clouds were very high ones and the lightning almost looked like it was a big flash of mist. It was a really neat effect. I tried to get it on film but it didn't work.

Have fun Virginia.

I've been addicted to polymer, making kaleidoscope canes and covering eggs. It takes a long time to do. I spent a whole afternoon just making 5 colour blends. Three days later I have the cane together and started reducing it. The hard part is getting it just the right size to put on the egg. My first tries look kinda sloppy lol.

Here is my first egg and the beginning of my second cane from last week.

Wow! That's impressive.

Do you have to bake those?

Re: April 2019 Fantasy Sci-Fi Challenge
 
Yes it's cured in the oven. I've gotten four kaleidoscope eggs done. Takes so long though, I'm moving on to different techniques.

It looks amazing. I took a class on how to do those psanky eggs, the Hungarian Easter ones. Im stuck at home with a bad cold so maybe I'll try one of those today.

Here are the four I got done. Such a long process though. It took me a whole afternoon just to make 5 colour blends. Then putting them together into canes took a few more afternoons. Then reducing and finally putting the slices on the egg. I'm happy with the last two though. The first two I call learning experiences lol. I did learn to avoid Sculpey III for this, too squishy. Premo keeps it's shape better. And just like painting, the more I prepare the better for fitting the slices on the egg. Eggs are awkward shapes lol.






Then I covered a couple of eggs with just marbleized clay and I think I will paint some flowers on them.



And tomorrow the annual Roblox egg hunt begins! lol

I used to work a lot with polymer clay, and made those eggs some years ago.

Anybody on my question? Although I just finished my project for this....
