So here we are at the end of 2013. So much has happened and changed in my life in this 12 month span. I really look forward to see what the next 12 months have in store for me. It could get interesting.
I know it has been a while since I have done a 2D. Sorry about that. Been busy hopping all over the country from one side to another. My poor 2D creativity was just ITCHING to come out and play.
This 2D is …well…2 fold.
First off, I adore Adi Pose (a fellow reader and Addict of the game). His accent just amused me to no ends. His videos quite enjoyable to watch. I do adore the English/Brits. His emoji/name also reflects a character from my favorite British TV Series, Dr. Who.
Basically people attempting to rid themelves of fat find ways to lose a lot of it. A way that the fat actually “comes to life” in the form of a lil Adipose creature and pops out of the person. It is the 2nd Episode of the 4th Series of Dr. Who, Partners in Crime.
Speaking of losing fat, the New Year brings with it new resolutions and the number one thing I see over n over n over n over is the want to lose weight. Whether it’s five pounds, fifty, or more. The world has become image conscious. I have been on a weight loss kick and still have more to go, so I sympathize with this.
Adipose is actually a word meaning fat, fatty, blubbery, etc. **Looks at fluff and cringes**And so with that…I created an Adipose character 2D (all while watching and listening to one of Adi Pose’s vidcast). My mind was all over on this one. No rhyme or reason. No direction. Just…create. So I apologize in advance for the lack of detail and pictures. It went REALLY fast. Lol
With everything covered in snow, it was difficult to find items that were as black as I wanted. My precious snapdragons are covered in burlap, so couldn’t use them for eyes. I tried using some of my precious Lil Shrubs. They were ok for now. So I made eyes and a mouth with them.
Then using the Carved Ice Sculptures, I seriously just started filling in space. Over and over and over.
Somewhere along the way as I quickly worked a shape began to form and grow.
Then my phone kept crashing (dang sketchy wifi) so some pics were lost. Essentially…this is what happened. The shrubs still weren’t enough for my vision of eyes, so they were replaced by Trash Cans. I removed the pavement from around the Adipose to give it MORE white background. I filled in all the gaps I could find with more Carved Ice Sculptures, though their shape still left odd looking openings. So I then turned to the other Shrubs to fill in around and behind the openings to bring more of a “curved” look to the adorable lil Adipose. There is a lil bit of twigs in them, but it worked. And I ended up with this…
Cute…but it needed to be FATTER…so I added more and got THIS…
Then I figured, why not keep going. It is New Years after all, so why not add a lil New Years fun…A lil Festive Trashcan Fire, some burlap covered Snapdragons, and of course some Broken Down Washers.
Then to surround the edges with a lil bit of ribbon using the Large Hedges and Wooden Fences.
So there is a cute lil roly poly ball of fatty cuteness for you all to see. Maybe it will help you all think of those areas you think are “fat” on you in a different light. As something that makes YOU cute and adorable and…well…YOU.
Here’s to a HOPPY NEW YEAR!!! 2014 here we come.
