Now, I need one of these for myself.. 😀
This is just a small test to see how I might make this cloak, it is on my 30cm drawing figure but the plan is to have the actual piece be 50cm for the height of the figure.. I have a fair bit of this white polyester fabric left so I figured it would be good to try actually making the outfit.. I am starting to think maybe I would be better off making him as some sort of kraken priest or shaman or something.. hmm!
I can see using some linen or similar fabric for the actual kraken and embroider on any details, applique or use animal eyes for its eyes, and the lower part layers of linen, organza and stitching.. perhaps catch some fused fabric bits in between the layers until it looks like the ocean? Still in the ideas stage but i like the over all shape/look.
*EDIT – I think I will make the tentacles longer and add some wire for shape…
** And this just in.. so you get a better idea…
As for the paintings from yesterday, these seem to look different in different lights, I forgot to get one earlier and as it is the cooler part of the year I missed the right sun setting.. But it should give you a better idea 😀
Please ignore the dirt, they were taken outside!
