Charizard Pipe Cleaners by kalicothekat Charizard Pipe Cleaners by kalicothekat
A charizard XD roflz.

Also submitted as an entry into Ultimate Fandom Contest 3: Video Games [link] :D
The name of the game you chose: Pokemon Red and Blue
Character
I chose Charizard because he's one of my favorites ;). I spent many happy childhood hours with my Pokemon Red game :heart:. Pokemon in some ways inspired me to draw more, for after I drew as much fanart as I could, I then began to create my own "makemon" |D... And then I pushed my creativity into new places and new things! Even without pokemon, I'm sure I would've kept up with art, as it is my passion, but it most definitely sped up my progress and inspiration :).

--------

This was fun XD. He's rather large for one of my sculptures :). And fat XD.

Pipe cleaners/copic marker

Thanks! It depends on a lot of things...I've gotten pretty fast at making them, so it would take an hour or two to make each. But some are quicker and some take much, much longer :).

Really? I guessed that it took longer with all the pretty details... It looks like you had oodles of practice though. xD *pokes your gallery of win*
~ Omg~ I wanna try now~ I just thought of a character that would look so adorable as a pipe cleaner sculpture~ xD
I can't imagine sitting still at the table though for 2+ hours, that and my parents would probably look at me funny if I asked them to pick up pipe cleaners of many colors. O_o;

Eeek, I don't know how to explain successfully--I really want to answer as best I can, though ;;. Here I go!
On this guy, I worked as I usually do, building the form with more wrapped pipe cleaners, until I got to the mouth. Then I used two smaller pieces to make the separate jaws, like bones. I began to wrap again, and once I had the right shape, I used a bit of black/red copic marker to make it look like a throat in the back :D. Then I glued on teeth using white fuzz from a pipe cleaner -nodnod-.
Did that make any sense D:? If not, I could try to clarify x3.

I think so, do you do it separate from the body, then attach it, or do it with the body?

kalicothekat Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
Hmm...I haven't measured him, but I think he's around 5 or so inches tall? I'll check when I get home.
It depends on how far his neck is stretched out =P.
I ought to include a quarter or something in these for size comparison :).

You know, whenever I think of pipe cleaners, I think of these big furry sticks that can't be pretty. But your sculptures are so clean and detailed, I think of pipe cleaners now as a viable art form. :) You rock!
