Here are a few scale pics of some of the individual items for your viewing pleasure. This was by far the most difficult piece I’ve worked on…….curves and symmetry, curves and symmetry, curves and symmetry, curves and symmetry, DAMN CURVES AND SYMMETRY!!!!!!!!!!I had to do a good handful of these multiple times just because something wasn’t quite symmetrical or there was a slight dip or bump in a curve. BUT, in the end, I think it came out great and I learned a whole lot as well due to how challenging and different it was.
*a fun tidbit: out of all the items I’ve done, on average, a single item will have about 30-40 individually cut pieces, but the Moon Power Tiare had 125+ individually drawn and cut pieces………….it was a nightmare.
I’ll be opening a Storenvy soon with a few limited edition prints that are hand-embellished and some small paper pieces like this tiny Master Sword and Hylian Shield from The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds that you’ll be able to choose what level/color Master Sword you’d like. I’ll be sure to announce when it’s open on my Instagram (@campluswhit) and right here on tumblr. Keep your eyes peeled!
In case y'all missed it on my Instagram (@campluswhit), here are a couple of other small pieces I had with me at ECCC last weekend. These guys went fast at the con! I was a bit sad a lot of people didn’t get to see them in person, but happy they sold and found good homes! I’ll be doing a bunch of commissions in frames this size starting up in a bit, so keep your eyes peeled for that post!

Here’s a little behind the scenes look of the otter pieces I did. Link’s keys are to give you some idea of the scale of everything else…..nothing terribly tiny this time around, but still pretty small. The otter that I had the most difficulty with was by far the Metroid one. SO MANY LAYERS ON THAT DAMN HELMET, but I was very happy with how it came out!
This is a tiny piece I did for Whitney’s mom as a gift for Mother’s Day yesterday, in loving memory of a wonderful little lady named Ivy, who recently left us. I only knew Ivy for about 4-5 short years, but I made sure to show her how much I loved her every time I saw her. The year I spent working from home would’ve drove me to madness if not for her, as she always kept me company and every day would let me know when it was time to take a break (which coincidentally was also when she needed to go poop). What I’ll always remember and look fondly on is how she always had a smile on her face and the many days we lounged on the bed for 7-9 straight hours watching cartoons until someone came home from work. We love and miss you little Ivy!!!!
Been a while since I’ve done a quick doodle like this! Colors are kinda bleh, but I was too lazy to actually turn this into something a little more developed. Marvel Boy, The Crusader, Quasar, The Uranian….whatever.
