Last Alliance Studios is now live!

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 14, 2014, 3:34 PM

I've been meaning to share this for a few weeks but now that college is over and done with, I thought the time was right to show you all my finished modelmaking website!
I've still got a few projects to add to it but I haven't got good enough photos yet.
Sooooo, without any further ado, here's Last Alliance Studios!

I'm hoping to start taking some tentative commissions over the summer, or at the very least, make up some things to sell.
Suggestions and/or feedback are greatly appreciated!

  • Mood: Emotional

Well hello there!
If you're reading this then somehow you have stumbled across my little lair.
For those who don't know me, please, let me introduce myself.
Christine Sutcliffe is me name, I'm 24 and from Glasgow, Scotland. (just call me EG!)

When I'm in a good mood, sci fi stuff and horses tend to be my staple - them and creatures of my own creation; most of whom dwell on Arden - a planet...somewhere.
I have several 'novels' in my head, aching to be committed to paper or pixels, yet no matter how hard I try, it never seems to work. :(

I'm also an avid gamer and half my walls are covered in Assassin's Creed and Red Dead Redemption posters. XD I have a lovely Canon 400D called Nigel and my PS3 goes by the name of Giovanni. :D

I've now finished studying HND 3D Design: Model Making for the Creative Industries at City of Glasgow College and it's taught me a lot!

As well as all that, my main hobby is collecting and customising model horses - most notably my beloved Julips, who star in now infamous photostories on my favourite forums. (Model Horse Love, Fallen Leaves and GJF respectively)
You can go and visit them on the yard if you like - EA Equestrian. - just stay 'in character' if you can please - I'm trying to keep it as realistic as possible. ;) I base all my HARPG horses on my Julips so I've got a very large herd to catch up with!

I now have a blog for all my photostories on Blogger. Feel free to have a read through and comment. :D

Oh and here's my studio blog where I stick in lots of stuff - mainly tutorials and whatnot. I also have a proper modelmaking portfolio too which is at the second link.

Current Residence: My house.
Favourite genre of music: Varied...
Favourite photographer: Bob Langrish and Robert Vavra
Favourite style of art: Realistic and yet stylised. Does that make any sense?
Operating System: Windows 7! Not as bad as I thought it'd be!
MP3 player of choice: iPhone (called Ivor 2.0)
Shell of choice: Preferably a comfortable one.
Wallpaper of choice: Whatever happens to be on the wall at the time.
Skin of choice: My own - I'm not wearing anyone elses!
Favourite cartoon character: Toothless from HTTYD
Personal Quote: 'I just about hatched myself to death'

Would anyone be interested in watching a livestream/joinme of me doing some art? 

13 deviants said Yes! Do eeeeet!
2 deviants said I know they can be a bit boring at times but I'd try to make it entertaining. XD
No deviants said No! Bugger off! XD
No deviants said I've got a few pieces of lineart that need coloured so it would be the ideal opportunity.

Hiya, thanks for the watch! C: Ahhh you've just plunged my brain back into the days when I had some Julip horses, fab times. ♥ Never had one of the Originals, though, always coveted them xDDD

Oooh, you should get sommmmeeee! They've had a new person behind the company for a year now and everything's SO much more professional and easier to order. :P

Some of the models I find a bit too blobby? But the hunter and QH ones look nicely horsey, and I think one of the cob models... Ahhhhhhh and the prices aren't even tooo high. I might have to get a custom. Neck wiring would be so cool. What's the dropped head business, do you know?

*enabling intensifies*

Get one get one get one get one! :D :D :D

Yeah, some of the moulds that have been around for decades have gone a bit blobby as the moulds wear out but that does make them extra cuddly. :P

The one on the left is mine and one of the last made before the mould wore out completely - he should look like the one on the right!…

I'd really recommend the Family Horse mould if you want a nice kind of standard horse - they look good in every colour too!…

Child's Jumping Ponies are a bit of a marmite mould, you either love 'em or hate 'em but they're the best for neck wires as they're so thin.

Dropped heads are a customisation where the head is kinda tucked down, so it's on the bit, or just arched a bit more. I've got two Mustangs, one normal (Laufey on the left), and one with a dropped head (Quinn on the right).…

Dropped head hunters are the best though, I've ogled these ones at shows for a while...…

Here's a Welsh Pony with an extreme version. XD…

They can also be raised, which makes quite a difference too!…

So yeah, get one. Or two, so they're not lonely. :D and then they'll have a foal who'll of course need a friend as well and before you know it you have fifty
