Rubik's Cube Etch A Sketch by pikajane Rubik's Cube Etch A Sketch by pikajane
The marriage between two iconic toys.

This was made specifically for a silent auction.

From start to finish, I estimate that it took about 2-3 hours.
My favorite part was shading the squares on the rubik's cube. I am trying out ways to be experimental with representing different colors by using different patterns to shade. I think this was a pretty successful attempt, but I'd love to hear your opinions and suggestions!

EDIT (12-19-15): I updated the background and am now offering prints on etsy - woohoo! www.etsy.com/listing/261067973…

Do you take the stuff out that erases it afterwards? Or do you just take a pic and then shake it? lol!

I hope you do--they're a blast!

My favorite thing about an etch-a-sketch is that it's like a never-ending sheet of paper, because once you're done, you can flip it over and start all over again.

pikajane Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2013  Professional General Artist
it really depends on a couple parameters: size of the etch-a-sketch I am using, subject matter, etc

usually work on a pocket size etch a sketch takes me somewhere between 5 minutes for a quick portrait to over 4 hours for my most detailed work, including a detailed background

Insane! I think it's brilliant. Do you at all "fix" the etch-a-sketch drawing in place like one "fixes" a photo? Or is it susceptible to shaking?


Oh, and the square shading is wonderful.

This etch a sketch has been preserved, so yes, it cannot be erased now. Thank you very much!
