Challenge
« on: February 22, 2019, 12:35:51 PM »
Not sure how often we will do the challenge, it might be weekly,
fortnightly or monthly depending on how busy we are.
You are more than welcome to join in the challenge that we set.


I had a challenge set me the other week by Danielle.
To make a cat design that was made by Masayoshi Matsumoto

This is his facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/masayoshi.matsumoto.5

Now its not often I make others designs but thought we would give it a go.
It did actually make up a variation on a theme as well.


The cat below was made by Masayoshi Matsumoto and this is the one we went by.

It was my turn to set the challenge for this week.
So went with a design I saw posted in the hairband
competition at twist and shout this year by Anthony Lena.

This is his facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/anthony.lena.3

And this was his VW hair band design.

Here is my version of the VW
As you can see in the first pic it still resembles a car...in the second I changed windows and positioned more upright on headband looks better....but still a bit car like.
But I like it.
This is made with 3 hearts.

I tried with the hearts, its interesting to see the different looks you get.
I tried with chrome edging for windows and then added chrome for
wing mirrors as I though the cat looked a little Oompa Loompa.

Here we go for another challenge...this time Snoopy.
The original pic from artist XCMMagicman is the last one.
The first and second one are mine.
The helmet was the biggest complication really on where to attach the side wall bubble of the heart.

I had a go at making this today, will get pictures tomorrow and post.

This is xcmmagicman YouTube for the Snoopy, he does not explain or make it.
He just talks about the design.

I think I need to add eyes lower down on face.
The goggles are more on top of hat and not being
used as they are, plus possibly a mouth as well.

I made using 15" hearts and 6" heart.
