New drawings in 2017

Making drawings in 2017 seems to continue. In the first week I have some time for myself and in that I already started to work on several new ones. Also finished some old ones and published them on the artists portfolio I have online:

Also the first drawing started and finished in this month January is now there for you to see:

Like usual you can see many faces in my drawings, and they are all connected…..

New work with 3D pen in progress

Working with the 3D pen is addictive. You can create actual objects, and that is much different as to drawing.  I don’t need samples, I  just like to create objects, and it is always currious do discover what comes out.  The techniques I know now make it easy to make any object. Also the in-between are fun to watch. I made a few photos of the new work I am doing in the early stages. You can see how the structures develope:

3D pen : New work in progress – by Ruud Janssen – December 2016

2016-12-03-10-07-58

I am currently working on a new object with the 3D pen from MyRiwell. It is again a larger object, so these take some time. I am using two new colours now. Perl-white and gold. Gives a special effect with the object for sure. Will make some good photos’s later too when it is finished and will get a name. Probaly the objects will be exhibited somewhere soon……

New object with 3D pen – November 2016

2016-11-27-12-54-00

This weekend I worked on another object with the MyRiwell 3D pen. The objects are becoming larger and are fit for a future exhibition. I have developed the technique now to make the larger objects and that works out just fine. Slowly a set of objects is created. The skelet is made of ABS plastics and the structures onto the body are like layers of paint that form a tight structure. That way the objects are light and yet very stable and you can hold them without breaking.

I have made a few more photos for you so you can see more sides of the object. The rears are large, and the figure is wearing a green cap. Have to think of the title yet, and will soon decide on wether the object is finished or not. Because these objects take a lot of time and materials I already ordered a few more kilo’s of ABS plastics. This time a different colourset, so that will bring some more surprises for future objects. Please feel free in commenting what you think of the results.
