Arcanist Colored by DireWolfwere Arcanist Colored by DireWolfwere
Well I lost inspiration on this after I missed out on the Flight Rising contest (still kicking myself for not submitting a WIP), but here it is, the arcanist finally colored:D Used acrylic paint for all of it, I will probably put something over it to seal it and hopefully make it waterproof (or at least partially waterproof).

Here's the non-painted version:

Thanks, I plan to make more paper sculptures once I get a work desk. haha. My siblings kicked me out of my room and took a bunch of my stuff so I have almost no workspace to do anything :I

Them thur fancy papercrafts. I totally dig this piece. When you said you'd used acrylic to paint it I was kind of surprised, as paint tends to cause paper to warp and do stupid stuff, but here it works. You got a really cool texture to it, especially on the wings. I'd say if you're feeling brave I'd try to put on some of those extra details, but being inexperienced with paint myself I'd be terrified of messing it up at this point xD so I don't blame you for keeping it simple.
Besides, the simplicity works for it. The paper gives it sharp graphic lines that I'm
Contest or no, you should be proud of this. Definitely get it sealed and protect it, maybe find something to mount it on so you can show it off. :3

Wow, thanks for such a great comment:D It was my first time making a papercraft, but I'm thinking of doing some much more interesting stuff when I make more^^ And...do you know anything about paint sealers? Because I don't, I've been wondering what to seal it with, do they just sell stuff called paint sealer lol?

Woops, somewhere in there I completely lost my train of thought. xD Awell.

I did a little research for you. :3 Since acrylic is made with plastic you don't necessarily need to seal it, but for painting on a piece like this I might recommend it - if it bends or anything funny the paint might tear and that isn't exactly something that I think you're going for.
Wiki how offers a few articles on the subject that seem pretty legit. I'd maybe practice on something else first before I'd paint your pretty dragon just to get a feel for how it's going to look and what it's going to do.

I hope this is helpful to you. If you have a good art store like Blick or Daniel Smith you can probably walk in and ask what they'd recommend, too. :3 I torture my art suppliers with questions /all/ the time, but that's what they're there for.

I'm amazed at how you managed to make this out of paper. Wow. Even the leg muscles are visible! I've working with paper mache before, but this is so delicate it would have been impossible for me to achieve.
I'm just...wow. So detailed. O_O

thanks! I used hot glue on the legs and arms to build up the muscle:) The rest is just cardboard from cereal boxes and printer paper. It's actually surprisingly strong after being glued together:D

Wow, still, that's fidgety work. I've burned myself on hot glue half a bazillion times. DX
Huh. I might try it out one day. :3

I seriously stopped breathing for like 30 seconds when I saw your comment. Good thing I'm not old enough to have heart attacks yet haha. Thank you so much for the kind comment:} It really means a lot hearing this from you, it was your books that first inspired me to get involved in the art world, and wow I've learned so much more than I would have without. I'm also so excited for flight rising to come out, it looks so good in the previews already!
