How artist Purple Faye made the original ‘Charmander’, ‘Bulbasaur’ and ‘Squirtle’ Pokemon inspired 3D acrylic paintings

Continuing on from when I made the original ‘Pikachu’ and ‘Eevee’ Pokemon inspired 3D acrylic paintings, here, I decided to make some more and it made sense to me that the next ones should be the starter Pokemon from the first generation. So here is how I made ‘Charmander’, Bulbasaur’ and ‘Squirtle’

If you’d like to make your own I have kits available for only £5 and £10 here

Charmander here, Bulbasaur here, Squirtle here.

Here’s how I made them:

I started by drawing the design directly onto the cardboard, I then cut the cardboard out and made it into 3D layers. Once these had been stuck onto the blank canvases I covered each one in modroc(bandages with plaster of Paris in them) and painted with acrylic paints when the modroc was dry.

Here’s a more in depth look at each one, which you can use to help you when you’re making your own with one of my kits. Charmander Kit, Bulbasaur Kit, Squirtle Kit.

Charmander Kit, Bulbasaur Kit, Squirtle Kit.

If you need any more help or have any questions get in touch

All of the originals are available for sale, ‘Charmander’ found his forever home at Christmas but ‘Bulbasaur’ and ‘Squirtle’ are still looking for theirs, only £50 each.

Plus I have cards available too for only £2

How artist Purple Faye made the original ‘Eevee’ and ‘Pikachu’ Pokemon inspired 3D acrylic paintings

I’ve been a fan of Pokemon for a long time and I’ve been playing Pokemon Go since it came out in 2016.

I’ve been thinking about maing some fan art of it for a while but I’ve only just started making some now. I’ve started with Pikachu and Eeeve because they are the first starters in the switch game Pokemon Let’s Go (plus I’ve always liked those two characters too).

Here’s how I made them both into 3D acrylic paintings starting with the drawing on cardboard, cutting the cardboard out into layers which I then stuck together and covered with modroc (plaster of Paris in bandages) and painted with acrylic paint once the modroc was dry.

This is the ‘Eevee’:

and this is the ‘Pikachu’:

Do you have a favourite Pokemon that you’d like to see me make into a 3D acrylic painting?

I’d love to know what your favourite (or favourites are if you can’t choose just one)

Let me know here.

Till next time,

Take care.

How to make your own Love Hearts 3D picture like artist Purple Faye.

Earlier this year I took part in Holmfirth Artweek artist demonstrations, 7th-13th July 2019, this time I showed you how to make your very own Love Hearts 3D picture using one of my kits. This is one of my more simple but effective designs which would be ideal for an absolute beginner to make.

 

In the pictures below you can see how I used the template included in the kit to draw out the cardboard layers (the instructions included in the kit tell you which bits you need to cut out), these were then stuck together on the canvas and left to dry.

Next I cut the dry modroc (bandages with plaster of Paris in) to size before I dunked it in a water and PVA/craft glue solution, wrung out the water and spread it out on top of the cardboard love hearts.

This is the stage that the kit gets you too, you then need to leave it to dry. (Mine had from Friday afternoon until Saturday morning in warm temperatures, yours may need longer or you may need to use a hairdryer to help speed things up a bit.)

While you’re waiting for it to dry you can get your paints ready that you’re going to use. I use acrylic paints and all I needed for this was black, white and red (I mixed the pink colour myself using the red and white). I started by painting the large heart in red, I then mixed my pink and used that on the smaller heart once the red was dry. Once the pink was dry I used white to add the highlights in the corners (as shown on the template) and then finished it off with a black background.
