Art From Art

'Art from art' (or perhapsI should call these 'fan art'?) to me is art that you create out of an inspired idea or simply because you like what you saw and want to do something because of it. So here are a few pieces inspired from art. (Click on the images for larger views)
leia in wonderland
01/ Leia in Wonderland — a combination of Stars Wars (the wookiee and Leia) and Alice in Wonderland (tea, deck of cards), I like princess Leia, she's a great character

luna
02/ Luna Lovegood — from the Harry Potter series, Luna is one of my favorite character from the series other than Harry, I still think she's a better match for Harry than Ginny

kymera
03/ Kymera — from the book Monstrous by MarcyKate Connolly, this is an older version of the character Kymera who is not quite human, on the left is normal Kymera and on the right is when she brings out all her monstrous features. Monstrous is one of favorite middlegrade books

the witch of oz
04/ The witch of oz — this is sort of Dorothy as a witch with all her friends as tiny creatures - scarecrow, tin man, cowardly lion and her dog toto, I've always like the movie but I was never a fan of the book.

penelope
05/ Penelope — this character is from one of my favorite movie of the same name, her face is covered because of a certain feature

audrey
06/ Audrey — Audrey Hepburn, she will always be my favorite actress

pippi
07/ Pippi Longstocking — I really like Pippi's strength and wackiness (on the right is a upside down closeup)

totoro
08/ Totoro — I made the doll by hand following a pattern I found online but I did pricked my fingers a lot as I really do not have much patience for sewing but I did make two of this, one for a blogger and one I still have. I think both of them turned out rather nice but they definitely looks better in photographs (on the left is mix media piece, on the right is what the doll looks like), I'm not a big fan of Totoro movie but I really like his character

the muse
09/ The muse — inspired by Edward Hopper's 'Automat', I'm a fan of almost all of Hopper's work

detention
10/ Detention — inspired by Norman Rockwell's 'Shiner' which is one of my favorite Rockwell art but I like all his works. For my piece, she is a witch and is awaiting for her detention

Have you been inspired to create art from art or any type of creations?

  2. I'm never inspired to create art, but do sometimes get inspired to write a story. I liked the Pippi Longstocking books when I was young, but hated the movie.

  4. Each is piece is inspired. Visited Edward Hopper's home in Nyack on my last trip to the NJ/NY area. I love the Dorothy on her broom one with the tiny lion, scarecrow & tin man. I looked up the movie Penelope - I must see it. Cheers.
