I Am an Electrician Part 2

I bought my LEDs, i need to calculate the power required to light up 10 LED in a series and parallel them in a series of 10s, according to calculation, it wont work as there is not enough power from 4 AA batteries to light up 10 LED in series, but in practical, they light up fine and i don’t know why. but atleast it works~~ WOOOOOO~

2016-01-26 20.27.38

so now i have to count how many LED I need in total, after calculations, theres 17 column and 10 row, so… 170 LEDs!!! OMGGGGG! each LED has 2 leg and i need to solder 340 times!! + the 17 resistor with 2 side, that makes 374 solders! and 374 is excluding the holes i need to solder to joint everything……… TIME CONSUMING!!! but i’ll do it.

After calculating the amount of LED i need, now i need to mark out every position of the LED so as to not make mistake when i solder.(the gold ones are covered with heat resistance tape

2016-02-11 09.44.46

Plot my Red LED first, so i dont mix them up after i start to solder, this took alot of time even i havent start soldering as i need to cut the leg of the LEDs and bent them so they sit there without falling off.

Now the Yellow LEDs

does it remind you of star wars’s storm troopers? nah i dident watch star wars but it remind me of them. neatly organised round white helmets. *insert darthvader theme song*2016-02-11 22.47.47Look at my stormtrooper’s leg, LOTS OF THEM! 340 to be exact, this is the massacre to their legs, and to my legs too, i think some flew all over my room and i wont be surprised to step on a few this few days.

2016-02-12 00.32.50the hard part will be soldering, SUPER TIME CONSUMING! there are 17 rows, but each LED has 2 leg, so i need to solder 34 rows WITHOUT MISTAKE!
2016-02-12 18.13.05

ANNNNNNDDDD I accidentally burnt out whole row of LEDs (10) after soldering so now i need to buy desolderer and learn how to desolder my LED to replace them…. STUPID ME!

2016-02-12 19.50.16Its hard work and SUPER time consuming but everytime I test it, I got this sense of achievement, LOOK AT MY LIGHTED UP STORM TROOPERSSSS~~

I Am a Sailor

2016-01-16 22.26.49I really liked this, but there is no typographic portrait in this so I cant really use this, the text here doesnt show that I am a sailor. so I came up with the 2nd version.
2016-02-02 09.35.21

This definitely suit the category of typographic portrait but I dont really like it anymore as it lack the “daring” and “thrilling” part for me.

I Am Hallucinating

2016-01-16 20.37.15Hallucinating is me in my own world, so I could see vibrant colours which doesnt really make sense and I couldn’t know how will it look like until i finished it. It is a mix of glue and acrylic paint on thick clear plastic sheet. Left is the plastic sheet and right is after I stamped it on paper.

2016-02-14 23.15.35 2016-02-14 23.15.47

I redo it a few times to see more variation and nope. 2016-02-14 23.16.09

I kind of like the one at right, but nope, its not good enough to be used as my final.

I Am Old Part 2

2016-01-26 14.49.15The finished lino cut.
2016-02-02 09.04.44Stamp them on old looking paper which I make by dappling kopi o kosong onto the paper. I REALLLLYY like this as i put some effort into it, but the final result didn’t have the “Old” in my “ONG ZI FENG” so i didn’t use this as final. (Lucky the project require 4 final as opposed to 6 =DD) HAHAHA~

I Am Trypophobic Part 2

2016-02-02 17.37.04

My clay cracked after it dried so I need to fix all cracks using Tamiya putty to make sure they don’t crack again.

2016-02-03 08.25.54after I fixed all my cracks, I need to spray them into skin colour to give the ITCH that I am feeling right now. I think its more disgusting when it is skin colour, because we can relate to it, imagine them growing on your scalp….. yes…. your head is itchy now.
2016-02-03 08.31.25

The done piece. now i need to add depth, blood, “disgusting” and “itch” to it.

2016-02-03 09.29.10

some shading, shadow and abit of dried blood.

2016-02-10 22.26.04

after i coat it with a layer of white glue to give it a slight shine + MORE BLOOD IN THE HOLES OMGGGGGGGGG! I AM DYINGGG
