June 2010 - Artist/Designer Allen Wen | AW177
If you’ve been following along w/ my WIP pics for the past week or so, then you know that I was working on a custom Artoyz Elements Earth figure. My design, “Dragon vs. Phoenix” was complex and detailed, but so worth it after it was all finished! Props to my very patient client for waiting!!! Hope you like it! Go to my Flickr account for larger pics!
Part 6 already? Lol, sorry for the late (again) post, but finally have a chance to post up part 6 of my WIP pics of Dragon vs. Phoenix. I hope you enjoyed this so far, and this custom is pretty much almost done!
Last time I left off w/ dragon side being somewhat done. There are a few more steps from this point, as I want the entire figure to be yellow colored. To do that, I have to color in parts that are white to yellow. Sounds simple, but tough since you have to be careful not to overlap the lines and if you do, go back over them w/ color again.
Friday afternoon update – most people are probably waiting till 5pm to run out the door for the weekend, and here I am updating my blog w/ my latest WIP pics! Sorry for the late update, but better late than never. Here we go…
Sorry, after a nice weekend, I am a bit late w/ part 4 of of my WIP Artoyz Elements Earth, Dragon vs. Phoenix. Last time we left off, I was outlining in black the rest of the Phoenix. I completed that side of the figure and will keep the final look of a secret till later! Right now, I concentrated on the Dragon side of the figure; I taped up another piece of paper + paper towel to keep the Phoenix side safe while I work. The paper towel is to prevent any unnecessary bumps or scraps against the Phoenix side.
Ok here is Part 2 of my WIP Artoyz Elements Earth, Dragon vs. Phoenix. For those that missed part 1, just scroll to my last post. I left off w/ finishing the Sharpie outlines of the Phoenix,, now it’s time to add color.
People ask me how do you color in something so small and detailed, and my answer? Very carefully!
Been working on this complex design custom for a little bit now, and w/ the consent of the owner, allowed me to post some work in progress (WIP) pics of it. Decided to do this so show how I work, how meticulous I am, and what goes into each AW177 art toy. Hope you like it and enjoy!
