View Full Version : I Just Had a Crazy Idea!

01-04-2013, 11:12 PM
So I was bored and looking around the room when I saw one of the love knots I made for my boyfriend.
Sorry the picture's sideways. But anyway, I thought to myself, "Imagine if someone was able to make a tail out of wheat! Haha and then the heads of the wheat could be the fluke! 'I am the mermaid representative of fertility!'" Haha I know, I'm just too funny.

Do you think it could be done? I challenge someone to make one!

Hmmmmmmmmmm-ten minutes later-mmmmmmm. Interesting... I think it can be done with some epic weaving skills and REALLY long pieces of wheat. :) But I'd assume it would hurt! :P

Oh I didn't think about that lol but you don't need long pieces, you just stick one end into the end of another piece, like when they make straw hats(=

I think it might be itchy to wear xD

The idea reminds me of the corn dolly (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corn_dolly).

What if you made a sheet of the wheat texture and made a latex or silicone tail. It could be possible...

Would it hold up well in the water? Not to mention, would it fall apart after flexing it as you swim?
Wearing it on land just to hang around in could work, maybe.. ;)

My tail designs are always really out there, for example my last design was inspired by Puss in Boots! Haha. I'm sure someone could do it! The greatest artworks are those that are different! :)

cool. I like this tail design idea....

Basically it's a whole tone of layers. There's the solid tail on the very bottom layer and the faded tail on the very top (about 25% opacity I think) and then every single colour is a layer on it's own. I then blur them to get a better blending. I use Paint.Net just because I'm more familiar with it than photoshop, and my old laptop with photoshop on it was recently dropped on the ground, so I can't use it anymore.

If you could get it to keep the shape I think it would end up cool. I like this idea
