Fierce Avian

Avian means bird.
I've used the word in a few works of mine.
Here's one of my drawings from last month
I drew this first and asked people to guess what it was.
Someone said duck.. and yea.. I do think it looks a little like a duck.

But it's not. It's the gorgeous eagle! One of my favourite birds to draw. My other favourite is the pheonix! You can check out some of my other works here!

I got the middle part done first. This includes the beak and the eyes.
Then, I lightly drew how I want the feathers to look. The direction they face and the thickness around the neck area.
Then I darken the beak and the face features.
Then the area below the beak. I think it looks really nice like this.
I sort of did a little mistake by blending it too much. I quite like it's fierce look when the pencil markings aren't blended together too much.

The blending made the eagle look too friendly.
That's all. Thanks for dropping by!
Hope you enjoyed reading this!

Tribal Dolphin Drawing

Here's a drawing I did while waiting for my dad one day.
Unfortunately, I did not bring my beloved sketchbook and had to drawn on a book with lines.
Here goes :
My attempt at drawing a Tribal Dolphin. There were no pictures for examples. The drawing 'jumped' out of my brain onto the paper. I think I'm quite satisfied with the end result.
How do you like it so far? My favourite is the face and the tail.
This is the completed drawing.
I did several drawings like these before and am proud to say that there were people who said they'd like to get tattoos with my designs! A friend's mom also asked for me to create a customized 'unicorn carousel' design. Which, I did but didn't really finish up and sorta lost it. Opps! Oh well, I'd probably try that again one day.

Tic Tac Toe Costume

Last costume for now of the month!
The Tic Tac Toe Costume! Who says you can't have fun after dressing up?
Here's what you need :
A Plain Board (for base)
4 Different Coloured Felt
Random Round Object (Optional)
 To make the base stiff, tape/glue a large piece of felt (We got ours from Daiso at Rm5) on a large plain board. You can reuse any old board you have at home.
Before sticking them down completely,

 You have to cut out a strip to hang over your neck to carry the board. Glue/Tape them in between the felt and the plain board. This will allow it to carry a heavier weight compared to only sticking it in front or behind the two pieces (board + felt piece).
When that is done, cut out long black strips of felt (or any other colour) to make the crisscross pattern as shown above. 
Next, you'll have to cut out the shapes X and O. You can plan how many you want and cut them out accordingly. Then, prepare some velcro to stick on four corners of the shape. This allows it to be played as a game. You can stick them in place right away.

And you're done! Wear any base clothing you want. You won't be able to really see it anyways.
That is all! Thank you for dropping by!

Flower Pot Costume Tutorial

 Hello there! We're making a flower pot costume today!

 Here's what you will need :
Perspex cutter / Blade
Hammer (To aid with cutting the pail)
Faux Flowers
Drill (optional)
Basic White Top (optional)

 The first thing you will be needing is the pail! You'll have to use the blade/perspex cutter to cut a circle in the base of the pail as shown above. You can also use a hammer to aid by hitting the blade/cutter into the pail for a start. This will make the flower pot.
 The next thing you will need are the flowers. Gently tape the flowers around the sides of the pail to make it seem like the flowers are growing out of the flower pot.
If you have extras, you can always use the headband twined together with the extra flowers to make a lovely flower crown. Trim the ends if it's too long.
When you're done, you can match it with a basic white top and you'll look like this!
You can also dress in other colours to make it more colourful. Flower pots can be filled with all sorts of flowers anyways!

We also have a video on Appetit's Youtube Channel!

Egglicious Costume

Who here love eggs?!
Who here loves them so much that you would want to be an egg! 
Well, with this tutorial, you CAN!
We'll be making an egg costume today!

What you will need :
White felt
Yellow felt
Sewing needle and thread

Place two pieces of white felt together, and draw an irregular circle. This would be the egg white!
Then cut it out (:
This was halfway through the video
*spot the salmon from my previous post behind!*
Next, place the yellow felt on top of the white cut out felt and decide how big you want your yolk to be. Draw a circle and cut it out. You can use any round object to guide you. I did it free hand. If you're good at that, go ahead. It's okay to be slightly off too.

Then, attach both white pieces with velcro on the side. Be sure that you don't place the velcro in the middle as you will be sandwiched in the middle of the egg costume.

And that's all! Have an egglicious day!

Salmon Sashimi Costume

Hello beautiful people.
Today I'll be showing you how to make a superbly adorable costume!

Watch the video at Appetit!

What you need :
Orange Fabric
White Pillow
White Overalls or Long Sleeve Top
Black Fabric
Fabric Glue

 Get your fabric and your pillow. In this case I used an orange t-shirt for the fabric.
Gently place and adjust your orange fabric on top of the pillow wherby it covers the whole top surface. If it is slightly smaller than the pillow, it's fine as you will be having gaps in between the orange fabric later.

Get your markers (of similar colour if available).
Visualize how many parts you would like to separate your salmon sashimi into. I did it in 5 parts. (only 4 can be seen in the picture above)
Find the middle of each 'part' and leave a dot. Then dot both the sides of that section too (which will be connected with the section below and not of the same level, forming a partially triangular shape).
Next, you will need your black fabric. I used felt from Daiso.
Cut out a piece of black 'seaweed' with the estimated ratio of 1:3 of the pillow.
Make sure that it is longer for you will have to fit into it as well! Attach velcro at the end of the seaweed. If you'd prefer the costume to be free sized, attach longer velcro pieces so the size is adjustable.
When that is done, it's time to cut the salmon sashimi with the points you've marked and glue them down! Fabric glue would work great here!
When you're done with all your pieces, grab your white overalls or long sleeved tops and wrap yourself in 'seaweed' together with the salmon sashimi!
And there you have it! The salmon sashimi sushi costume!
It's THAT easy!

Let me know if you decided to try it out!
