Platform Party by pikajane Platform Party by pikajane
This is the first etch a sketch image I've ever drawn on a pre-preserved etch a sketch. It was a bit of a nerve-wracking experience to create. Since I could not erase, I was afraid I was going to mess up. But I am thrilled with how this turned out!!!

I'd say this took about 3 or 4 hours to knock out. This is a completely original concept, and I had a lot of fun planning and executing this piece. I wanted to create something that was very intricate, and gave me room to experiment with multiple patterns.

Like Xpresslife Tifa says, this reminds me of Keith Harring's work. He's one of my all time favorite artists, and his designs were so intriguing and animated. Excellent planning and execution on this. The textures are amazing, as are the figures' poses. :)

And thank you for remembering the name of the artist! When I was younger I didn't get his work as much but now I am learning to appreciate it.

No problem. :) I couldn't remember his name for the longest time until I looked it up one day. XD I've got his site bookmarked if you'd like a link. I was first exposed to Harring in an art appreciation class I took while working on my associate's degree. His work is so iconic, that it's impossible to not recognize when you see it.

I removed the powder from the inside of the etch a sketch, so since the powder is gone, it no longer can be erased. I also glued the knobs onto the unit so that nobody can turn them anymore.

This reminds me of an artist that does the outline of the people but I don't know their name. ugh. I really love the different levels of buildings. The pattern worked out really well.

Yeah I can't think of the name for the life of me. How much would it cost me to get a commission from you? I was thinking I would like a drawing done on etch-a-sketch. Or maybe we could do an art trade.

:iconpikajane:
pikajane Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2012  Professional General Artist
Another deviant that commented on this piece thought of the name!
Keith Haring
The idea of a commission is more appealing to me at the moment because I am broke xD
Well what size etch a sketch are you interested in having me do a drawing?
pocket=small
travel=medium
original=large

Depending on size/difficulty/detail of subject matter, I can figure out a price from there.
