Ice Queen by CraziCreek Ice Queen by CraziCreek
second being uploaded in this "objectification" series.

while normally i try to avoid using any kind of celebrity in these cut-ups, Cate Blanchett just fit so perfectly onto this iceberg that i made an exception. the curve of her arm and the ice, the way here hair falls into on of the crevaces near the top, her neck on the edge, they were all such perfect fits. i personally really like the climbers going up into her hair.

as always, traditional collage technique.

Cate Blanchett....as an iceberg. Quite peculiar but jovial; and it does fit together very well though.
I did a lot of these at design school, where you make up a collage of no more than 3 pieces; some
of the images people made were amazing. We did it as an exercise. Its a good one to do when you
wanna get your creative juices flowing; it switches on your mind and enables you to manifest ideas
more effectively. Some of them can be hilarious.

If your interested in having a look, I've got some pretty funny ones that you might appreciate on my
site >> [link] - just click on the suitcase and go to works from 2004.

Hi There! :wave:
You have just earned yourself an O.D.D. Traditional Art feature :winner:! congrats! :clap:
ODDS (oibyrd's daily deviations) are to honor the sometimes overlooked artists of dA that I personally think deserve some exposure and also, to introduce the more popular artists to the new/overlooked deviants. I prefer to showcase ALL artwork that I love (and that includes popular artists) in order to create a non-biased feature of the talent on dA. Please click the link below to see your work featured and to view other featured artists . If you prefer not to be a featured artist, just send me a note and I will remove you from the list. Cheers! Sandi xoxo

This, is amazing. You do this all by hand, correct?

Selection of images, blending of said images, and presentation (frames, etc) of the whole is excellent.
On a side note, I'm really starting to dislike those adjectives. They've been used so often that they're starting to lose their emphasis.

Thank you kindly. Yes, I do all my collage work by hand. Exacto knives are my true love.

Honestly, the thing that takes the most time in these collages is finding two (or more) images that fit together well enough to blend into one. This one fell into my lap though.

Had I the money, I'd be making noises concerning the purchase of this. You should consider it, if you haven't already.

I can see that, I've been looking for several years and have yet to find even a single one!

I'm very flattered. I have been thinking of starting a print account, because people keep telling me they would buy this or that. usually, I just give pictures away to friends.

It's hard to find the right combination, and the only answer is to have a TON of magazines on hand at any time. Clutters up my apartment but good!

Same here. I enjoy the process of drawing, and seeing what people like and dislike about it, but I have little interest in a finished piece. So I always find an occasion to mail them off to someone who'll enjoy them.

The only magazines I get are gaming, and I don't even look at them anymore. Used to be interesting articles and reviews, but now it's just a showcase.
