For the Celebrity Egg Heads Competition 2008
They said:For the purposes of this contest, celebrity will be defined as the following;
Someone "well known" from deviantART, e.g. an Admin, or a senior, or a popular community member. (Not your Auntie Babs who signed up last week then disappeared after downloading a wallpaper.)
Someone from the media, e.g. a tv presenter, a movie or tv star.
A cartoon character.
So I chose $eStunt
Anyway, here's the mechanics of it for those of you who are interested in such things...
I blew (excuse the pun) an egg, built a wire skeleton for the tail, attaching it to the hole at the base of the egg using BluTak (quite tricky to do without breaking the egg), then built up the tail around the skeleton using papier-mâché. Then
when the papier-mâché had dried I painted the egg with TippEx, so that when I painted the brown egg and the white paper it would look the same colour. Then when that
had dried I painted it all blue, and finally when that
had dried I painted on the face.
All in all it took a few days to do, but was lots of fun!
Edit: winners finally
