 Burning can give you so many different kind of feel to suit a particular theme. Legends of Zelda is just brilliant to give the feel of a mythical legends etched and burned into wood. So it was a case of sooner or later before I did something like this, and of course made and gifted for a Zelda fan!

 

BurntPieCreations

Deathly Hallows bridge: I started this simply because I realised I had done no Harry Potter burns and that just won’t stand! The Deathly Hallows art is just ripe for recreating on wood, I was given this waney edge for free and had it waiting for a good idea. It was also the first time I engraved the wood as well to create extra effects and texture for the magic.

 

BurntPieCreations

Pokemon (sugimori): Regarding Pokemon, I don’t think it can get much more nostalgia that Sugimori’s Pokemon artwork (Red/Blue cover art for example). So it was going to happen sooner or later that I would burn and watercolour for a tribute!

 

Luiga: SoulSilver is probably my favourite Pokemon game out of the lot, so I was pretty pleased to get to do this for a Pokemon crafts swap

 

BurntPieCreations

Skull: This is the first loose freestyle burn I did, I just basically carried on with it for two afternoons and pretty pleased with the outcome

 

BurntPieCreations

Guan Yin: This was a commission for a close friend’s mother. I quite like it because it’s one of those pieces where it came out much more authentic looking than what I had in mind.

Reptilian Eye
One of the pieces from a period where I was just obsessed with practising shading, so it ended up being a really good opportunity to practise with textures and creating the illusion of 3D

 

BurntPieCreations

‘Shankly’ (German Shepherd): Even though I had already done Charlie the dog, it really intimidated me to do a German Shepherd. But I couldn’t really turn down the challenge!
