Medigun complete - part 3 by Xaolin26
Medigun complete - part 3

Last part.  Continuing from parts 1 and 2…

 

…………………………………………………………………

previous> xaolin26.deviantart.com/art/Me…

…………………………………………………………………

 

 

Process:

 

9 – Glue all the necessary components together and add finishing touches. 

-              Finishing touches for me include adding the red and yellow wire, attaching the black hose (which will attach to the Medigun pack when completed), and the light (I wrapped a few layers of red cellophane over the light to get the red light).

Medigun W.I.P - part 2

…………………………………………………………………

 

 

Process:

 

6 – Apply 3rd (final) layer of paint (black & red).

7 – Sand off some of the 3rd layer paint to get a withered/used look.  Thing about where the object will be handled or bumped most often, and sand mostly in those areas. 

8 – Apply a protective sealant over the painted areas (this protects the paint from wear and tear).

Medigun W.I.P - part 1 by Xaolin26
Medigun W.I.P - part 1

Behold, my latest cardboard creation: the Medigun from Team Fortress 2!  :iconlachoirplz:

 

Unlike the Shard costume, I created the Medigun with a combination of cardboard and paper mache.  I got the idea for using paper mache from another artist at the 2014 Stocktoncon.  So making this project was more of an experiment, to see if paper mache could be strong enough for a costume.  I’m glad to say it was successful!  Chances are I’ll use this cardboard & paper mache process for future projects (possibly commissions as well). 

For the metal look, I used a painting technique I learned from my sculpture class.  This involved putting multiple layers of paint on top of each other, and sanding away some of the first layer to get a used metallic look.

…………………………………………………………………

…………………………………………………………………


Process:

 

1 – Create the basic shapes out of cardboard.  Be sure all the pieces fit together properly.

2 – Cover the outside of the cardboard shapes with 3 to 4 layers of paper mache.

3 – Sand the surface of each shape to make a smooth surface.

4 – Put a base coat (white paint) on the outside (1st layer of paint)

5 – Apply 2nd layer of paint (silver). 

  • At this stage I attached the nuts to the specific parts of the gun (since the nuts were already silver colored they only needed the final layer of paint).

Well, this was an odd coincidence for me.  First my McDonalds order number, and now this.

It's probably nothing.  Just thought it was funny.  :P

3D Portfolio  by Xaolin26
3D Portfolio

3D portfolio complete!  This particular 3D portfolio was created for the sole purpose of submitting these in the portfolio awards for my current college.  Though I will probably continue adding pieces to my 3D portfolio in the future.

Also, in case y'all were wondering what I was working on for the past few months, it was the medigun from Team Fortress 2.  :D

Pieces include:
 - Shard costume
  Made using mainly cardboard, hot glue, and duct tape.  Elastic and velcro used for connectors.
 - Medigun
  Made using mainly cardboard, hot glue, and paper mache.  Some wires and nuts used for certain components of the gun, and spray paint used for the coloring.
 - Metal Chinese Dragon
  Made of steal parts and a green glass marble.
 - Bust of my mom
  Made with ceramic clay.  Spray paint and graphite paste used for the coloring.
 - Bronze action pose
  Made using lost wax bronze technique.  Sulfur used to put black on the bronze.

Greetings!
Welcome to my page. Thank you for taking the time to read this. And if you’re a new watcher, welcome aboard! :la:

I’m an aspiring artist who’s trying to make a name for herself in the world of art. I specialize in creating comics, action in comics, concept sketches, special effects in Photoshop, sculptures, costuming, and much more. I’m nowhere near perfect, but I’m still improving my skills as an artist.

I’m also Christian and proud of it! Don’t let that discourage you though, I’m a friend to everyone and I don’t judge others for what they believe in. :hug:

If you ever need a friend or someone to talk to I’m here for ya!

Feel free to look through my gallery and give me pointers on how to improve my skills. :meow:

IMPORTANT> If you intend to use my artwork for personal projects, websites, etc., then please contact me about which picture you want to use, what you want to use it for, and so I can approve of it or not. It's best to contact me via. note here on DA or through my email: xaolin26@comcast.net




There’s a lot of projects I’m participating in.

Currently I’m collaborating with:
Sonic Revolution to advertise for the group
Sonic Redesigned to make a fangame
Saphfire321 to turn her fancomic into a comic drama
AMTdootlas to create comic pages for his Sonic Universe series


My own independent projects include:
SatBK: Chaotix (fancomic)
Medic's medigun and pack (for 3D portfolio and conventions)

Future projects I want to start:
Tutorials for comics, costuming, etc.?
TRACER original series
Xiao Teng: The Friendly Dragon

As you can see I have a lot on my plate. So I’m pretty busy most of the time. However, I still try to stay connected to everyone here, and even if I don’t respond to comments right away I always read them. :)
Updates may be slow, but I’m always working on artwork to upload into my gallery. :D


my Youtube channel (which doesn't have much on it) > www.youtube.com/channel/UCD2c0…


Background character submissions for SatBK: Chaotix are currently closed for now. I have all the characters I need for the background to get the comic rolling. However, those who have already submitted characters before this announcement will still have their characters drawn, and character submissions will most likely happen again.
Here's the deviation for the character cameos themselves> xaolin26.deviantart.com/art/Sa…

I do have a livestream chanel, but I barely use it . . . > www.livestream.com/xaolin26?t=…

Yes, I'm still interested in voice acting. :D
I just won't be able to do anything until my voice has fully recovered (I've been sick recently).

Thanks!  (that's totally ok!  I'm super late in responding to you ^^') :la:

That's very thoughtful of you to consider me for that position, but unfortunately I'll have to decline.  I've still pretty busy lately with school and life.

College eh?  Well, I've taken care of most of my general ed. classes.  So when I transfer over to San Jose state I'll be taking mostly art classes & classes toward my degree.  :D

In terms of art, I've had to put aside just drawing things for a few weeks to complete my 3D portfolio.  All the sculptures have been finished, so now I can go back to drawing again. :la:
