atelier works

The first finished photo of my Zelda cosplay. 👑
I constructed this costume over the course of about six weeks, but I spent just as long planning and researching the techniques that would go into it. Despite my time crunch to finish it for Katsucon, I am proud of myself for not cutting any corners or sacrificing my commitment to quality to get it done. (I just worked crazy long hours every day for weeks instead, haha)

This is probably the most complex project I’ve tackled to date. Although there are some small improvements I would still like to make, I’m really pleased with how it came out overall. Get ready to see lots more photos of this one!

Q: Hwa Koogi-nim Hello!!!!!!! I am someone who considers killing stalking as a pleasure of life💞I like Bum so much.. Sangwoo too of course!!!!!!!! I like how Bum has a bit of craziness (like for instance when he said he wanted to fondle Sangwoo..^^) I like how Sangwoo has a gap in his personality when he is outside compared to when he is in the basementㅋㅋㅋㅋ There are a lot of readers who love Bum like how I do so don’t feel sad!!!!! I will always support you💖Here’s a question! Every time I read kills (*abbreviation of killing stalking in korean) your drawings are so good that I get surprised every time. When did you start drawing~?!? And what made you decide that you wanted to become a webtoon (manhwa) author💘

Koogi: I feel relieved that there are a lot of people who still like my work(*can be implied as Bum too) ..ㅜ I wavered a little ㅜ I think these words of encouragement (*support messages) are giving me strength and aid…ㅜ(heart) I started drawing during elementary school at an atelier (an academy that works with clay) I learned this and that and also began learning western paintings…. I sent a college application in high school for facial feature expression art (*unsure) and started learning about manhwa in college! I decided that I wanted to become a webtoon (*manhwa) author when I was in my 2nd year of college! It’s fun replying back to a comment after refreshing my memory!!ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

anonymous asked:

Same with best friends since childhood but with Yusuke?

honestly i’m kinda glad to do some yusuke rn bc y’all are all THIRSTY BITCHES for akechi (lol someone ask me for stats on the……62 messages i’ve got in my inbox rn, it’s a wild ride.)

soooo on to the bullet points (seriously, do y’all like these? tell me if you don’t)

  • yusuke probably didn’t get out much after he started living with madarame tbh?
  • like he went to school and all, i’m guessing, but i’m kind of imagining him playing around with art supplies in madarame’s atelier while the dude worked instead of going to preschool
  • remember how in yusuke’s social link it turns out madarame was a decent father figure before he got distorted? 
  • you can pry that shit from my cold, dead hands, amigos
  • also i imagine that being babysat by 15+ artists on a daily basis is how they found out he was so gifted
  • anyway, probably yusuke met Best Friend when he went to official school for the first time in like kindergarten or whatever
  • and Best Friend would have had to approach him bc quiet boye just wants to be left to his own devices and….draw shit or whatever
  • BUT THEN HERE COMES BEST FRIEND
  • who wants to know what he’s arting/why he’s arting/why he’s not playing
  • and he’s like “i’m drawing this bug/i like drawing things/playing gets you dirty and sensei says you should always start art with clean hands end end with dirty ones.”
  • for their entire friendship, from that first meeting till phantom thieves time, it’s a litany of “sensei says” to the point where Best Friend can recite some of the more common ones with him
  • or even all of them, hell
  • BECAUSE THIS IS MY HEADCANON, BEST FRIEND ISN’T AN ARTIST
  • they can draw a little, chibi characters or recreations of cute mascots, but nothing awe-inspiring.
  • they probably don’t even have that much interest in art but yusuke still drags them along places and they develop an appreciation because he has an appreciation and they want to spend time with him, right?
  • their friendship is a weird mixture
  • yusuke always wants to stop what they’re doing to closely inspect a flower or a poster or the old guy playing shoji in the park, so he can try to recreate it later or so he can understand the feeling it gives him
  • Best Friend is constantly on the move, wants yusuke to join them playing a sport or racing down to the corner and back or daring one another to take one step closer to the creepy abandoned house
  • the usual kid stuff y’know
  • so yes, they stop for all those things, but also Best Friend gets yusuke out and into the world
  • they play and laugh like actual kids
  • because of his broadened horizons yusuke explores so many different art movements and Best Friend gets to experience them with him
  • there’s an entire collection of artwork in storage somewhere that madarame didn’t put out because it didn’t fit in with “his style”
  • but has the handprints of yusuke and Best Friend slapped all over a canvas, or paint-dripped sculpture in the vague shape of two humanoids holding hands
  • and, you know, yusuke might be better at not blurting out secrets
  • but it’s hard to keep something like madarame’s actions from your best friend
  • Best Friend tries as hard as they can to get him to leave, to see sense, to not hand over his artwork like it’s money that can be lent for a favor
  • maybe they fight
  • maybe there are some harsh words spoken
  • but in the end Best Friend and yusuke will forgive one another
  • even if yusuke is incredibly upset that Best Friend went to the phantom thieves website to beg them to save him

Sculpting from life at my club “Terre d’Art” (reworked at home).

Sorry, I’ve been very busy lately. I’ve been sculpting a lot to be able to present something at the club annual exhibition (deadline for submissions ends tomorrow!). I’ll try to take pictures of the two sculptures that have already been selected. This one is WIP, but considering the remaining time, will probably be called ‘unfinished work’ and recycled. Oh well…

Today was the big let-go-to-the-other-side-of-the-country-even-though-it’s-snowing-day… because I really wanted to see the Albert Moore exhibition which is currently at Museum De Buitenplaats. Since it was on my way, I stopped at Rodin - Genius at Work at the Groninger Museum as well.

I will post a link to a small blogpost on the Moore show in the next few days. There were some beautiful works there.

The Rodin exhibition was… interesting. There were a lot of peope and somehow, most of them were elderly men and ladies giggling about the amount of nudity in Rodin’s works. WHAT DID YOU EXPECT come on, lots of his works are charged with erotic elements. They’re showing it. Who are the grown-ups now? In comparison, there were a lot of children as well who were not laughing because suddenly!private parts but mesmerised by the large bronzes and marbles.

The works shown were great, actually. They had five different The Age of Bronze bronzes, all together with subtle light changes, so you could see the difference between the sculptures (and if there ever would be a male version of Galatea can it be him please because he’s fine, seriously). There were some watercolours and a lot of 19th-century pictures of his works and atelier, which I loved.

In one of the hallways some pictures by Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf were shown and they were absolutely stunning. The models are residents of the Nationaal Ballet and it’s fascinating to see pictures where the focus is so much on the muscles. I’m a dancer (not ballet though) and I like looking at dancers bodies, see their muscles, feel the strength through the picture. Amazing.

Here’s an image from the leather panel I’m putting together: the Sydney Losstarot costume I made for our Vagrant Story group at A-kon. Aside from the lining fabrics and the claws on his fingertips, this costume is solid leather. My panel at ConBravo will cover the principles behind building this type of armor, and lots of general info you can apply to many other projects!

My conference will be tomorrow Friday 1st of May, 6pm, at Pictoplasma festival in Berlin. I’ll go through my all work and try to explain my way, the links between experiences, inspirations and collaborations.
It is a very exciting time, thanks again to everyone that have been by my side, family and friends here, there and elsewhere ! ☮
