The Carnivorous Lemon- Final 2 by Skarlet-Raven The Carnivorous Lemon- Final 2 by Skarlet-Raven
Media- Plaster for smaller sculptures, Lino Ink for print, Styrofoam, Spray Paint, Acrylic Paint, Aluminum Sheet Scrap, Galvanized Steel Wire, Ping-Pong Balls, Onion Skin [Drafting Paper] for large sculpture [15.5"x17.5"x21.5"]

The Carnivorous Lemon- Final 2 was the Final assignment for 3D Design class, sometime during late second semester.

It was actually a multi-faceted project, dealing with making three plaster models based on a real fruit or vegetable- one realistic, one subtractive, and one additive, creating a linoleum print featuring the fruit or vegetable, and building a container to house these smaller projects.

Making the final project was quite a maddening experience. I had to rush to be done by the deadline, and I learned a lot of things doing it- be careful of burns when soldering wire, don't breathe in the spray paint, don't drop pieces with wet paint all over them, and beware of pointy metal teeth- the lemon bit me over and over while I was working.

:noes:

I think it was all worth it in the end, and the professor ended up liking it.

Ohhhhh god, the lemon exists in reality. XD It's so adorable. I want mine of my very own! That will...probably give me nightmares. XD

He reminds me of a very evil paper lantern. :meow:

It is quite evil; I sliced up my arms and hands working on the teeth. Serves me right for picking sheet metal to make pointy teeth out of, though.

Thank you for taking a look over my artwork; I really appreciate it.

:D

That's truly amazing _ For one of my art class, we recently had to came up with an idea of "how to make a volume of a shrimp", and from that day on, I have a deep respect for people who can do things in volume because lord, that is harder than anything T_T.

... and this one is pretty cute and decorative (but that must be freaky at night in a bedroom isn't it? )! =D

To be honest, sometimes I struggle a lot with seeing space/proportion/everything relationships in three dimensions- my brain still wants to see a lot of things in two dimensions like a drawing on a sheet of paper.

I think he's whimsical, but my dad keeps telling me the eyes look creepy on the sculpture. Heh.

Thank you for taking a look over my artwork; I really appreciate it.

It was a fun project, but the big lemon ended up gnawing on my arm more than necessary.

:lol:

It can be vicious, too. It kept biting me while I was working on it.
