This piece was inspired by the movie, Legend.
Every project has challenges and, since this one was larger than just a stand print size (I do have a pro but not quite comfortable with pass through), I had to hide seams “creatively”. In the back, I created an engraved design and some of the flowers act as puzzle pieces latching into the next piece. Bottom layer (back) is 3 interlocked pieces.
Mmmm! Mmmm, mmmm, mmmmm! That’s a treat to the eyes.
That is stunning! Gorgeous!
Wow absolutely stunning. I love the creative seams.
Beautiful. Just beautiful.
LOVE your colors and the contrast with the black border!!!
How beautiful and intricate!
Ohmygosh, your pieces truly amaze! The back is very nice as well. Really lovin’ your work.
Wow I was loving just the back before I realized it was just the back! All the more fantastic, even unbelievable for the rest!
Once again, I am at a loss for words to describe how impressed I am by your artistic talent as well as your skill.
I can’t think of enough adjectives to describe this beautiful piece.
This is some outstanding work.
Can you elaborate a bit on your color/finish process?
That’s the level of detail I want for my ten principles project.
I was trying to remember the film and the tie in. I just couldn’t do it until I realized I was thinking of “I Am Legend.” Once I saw Darkness I put the pieces together so to speak. Lovely work!
Darkness and the Unicorn are both 2 layers with colored resin as the base and a hardwood overlay (Bloodwood and Yellowheart). Black Acrylic was used for the horns of Darkness and Lili’s “crown”. Lili’s face and chest was done in a basswood with a black veneer inlay for the details. All remaining wood cuts/engravings were done in a birch plywood and painted with either gold acrylic or black acrylic paint. Lastly, there is a cut and engraved layer of clear acrylic in the background (over the white and black) to make the main background motif more continuous.
For those not familiar with the movie, the main background design is a ring (half moon half sun) that Lili wears in the movie.
Stunning! Love the artistry and selection of materials. The join of the pieces … Just wow!
terrific. jealous of the intricate work.
Ooooh, that’s some inspiring work! Thanks for sharing! I love the contrasting colors and textures.
