If you're drawing something sci-fi, and you need to redraw a ship a bunch of times, it might be a good idea to actually build it.
Kitbashing is when you cut up parts of model kits and glue them together to create something new. You can also use cut and shaped wood blocks to build onto, or pieces of plastic you find(plastic toys or packaging) or buy(styrene).
It's endless fun, and it will allow you to see your ship from any angle! I'm working on my second ever kitbash, I'll post the WIP pics here.
Here I've cut up a helicopter, some cars, planes and a bit of a boat. I got these old models at a flea market for about 30 bucks. To buy them new would be too pricey. I use model glue to bind the parts after arranging them until I see something.
Ive added more bits, and ive also spread on a white tamiya putty to fill gaps, and green Aves Apoxie to fill larger gaps or create fake 'wires'.
Now I sprayed it with a primer, which brings it all together visually so I can really see what Ive got. I decided not to add anything else, I like it as it is.
Attached it to a wooden base by drilling into the wood, putting a threaded post in, and glueing a nut into the bottom of the model. I then painted it reddish pink with my airbrush to test out that colour.
Been a while since I've drawn digitally (or posted here).
I'm going to try and get back into drawing as I have a goal of putting together a book dummy this summer. I drew this Neverending Story fanart today. God I'm rusty, can't remember how to do certain things or which brushes I used for what. I like the image I ended up with, though.
