As you’ve probably noticed from former posts, I like the fictive universe, J.R.R Tolkien created for his books: the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit. I wanted therefore to do a mask, inspired by the franchise’s villain Sauron. It’s not an exact copy, for I wanted to give it a bit of a personal touch. So after getting to the Idea, I started sketching out different versions of the helmet. I used plaster to create a mold of my own face, on wich I…„SAURON’S MASK“ weiterlesen

The hair, on the other hand, is done in another style, I don’t like it that much. It seems not to fit into the picture, as the…„Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock 1969, acrylic painting“ weiterlesen
This is a watercolour painting of Ivan the Terrible IV. He was the first russian tsar. He was known for his brutality. His reign was around 1540. I found inspiration within pictures of the film „Ivan the Terrible“ from the soviet film maker Sergei Eisenstein.
