::Matches Phoenix:: by ExiledChaos ::Matches Phoenix:: by ExiledChaos
Here's a little something for all the time I need to make up :aww: :heart:

I made this last semester for my 3-D class. Project: modular. We had a choice of what the sculpture could actualy be, so I thought it would be cool to make a phoenix entirely out of matches! Pretty cool, eh?

Time taken: just about 7hr. using a hot glue gun.
Match count:????? definately over 1000.

I took a million and one pictures of it because I was going to burn it. Yes. BURN IT! But too many people begged me not to, so I'm making a duplicate to burn. This was the best slide taken, since we're doing another project for Foundations class with our portfolio. XD
Easy come easy go.

P.S. FULL VIEW!

P.S.S.: Here are some close up shots: [link]

P.S.S.S. : Here's a part of my Ortographic Projection Sketches as well, in case you wanted to see some of it's progression: [link]

EDIT!!!

Oh My Fucking God!!! :faint:
I got on today and suddenly saw I have so many new favs and messages on this and kinda stopped breathing for a sec... and OH MY GOD, I got a DD!!! I don't know if I should cry or dance!! 8D ....actually... I'm doing both right now XDD; :boogie: :dance: :happycry: Thank you soooooo much ~Sid1120 ! I knew you loved this piece so much, I really owe you so so so much :happycry: And thanks so much to ^guruubii for featuring it! ;__; Thank you everyone! Thanks so much!!! =D

God, this is beautiful :D!! I know you don't want to do this but for some reasons I want to see you setting the sculpture on fire. Would be interesting what it would look like when the matches are all burned up ;)

Sorry for my medicore english, it's a second language for me :)
