Eye of Agamotto by Thom-Heap
Eye of Agamotto
"Dormammu, I've come to bargain!" - Stephen Strange 


The amulet was inspired by the Eye of Agamotto worn by Benedict Cumberbatch in Dr. Strange.   It has a green LED light for the "Infinity Stone," which can be turned on and off.  The Eye of Agamotto is very lightweight and sturdy, measuring roughly 4.5 inches in length.  It was carefully carved from foam, then painstakingly reinforced with several layers of paper mache. The amulet was then hand carved with the intricate designs seen in the film.  Finally it was hand painted to give the amulets a metallic look.

The amulet is available as a made to order item in my Etsy shop here:  www.etsy.com/listing/479822306…

Winter Soldier's Book by Thom-Heap
Winter Soldier's Book
Winter Soldier's Book -  inspired by the one used to activate The Winter Soldier, played by Sebastian Stan in Captain America: Civil War.

The book is approximately 8.5 x 11 inches and was constructed using  faux red leather. The cover also features the iconic Winter Soldier Star cut out to reveal a faux black leather star. The book contains 40 blank pages (80 back and front). The pages are cut to a rounded edge just like the one in the movie.

The book is available as a made to order item in my Etsy shop here:  www.etsy.com/listing/293800557…

Sure!  the best advice I can give you is to give yourself a lot of time and patience.  When I was younger - my older brother could look at any photo and draw it perfectly.  People visiting my house would ask why my parents had a photograph of cat woman on their wall, my Mum would say - "That isn't a photo, my son drew that."  Back then, I could draw a little - but nothing like my brother.  It wasn't until my junior year of college that I decided to devote a lot of time to learning to draw.  I sat myself down and spent 3 months copying out of an anatomy book.  It turned out, that when I really focused, I could draw just like my brother - in black and white at least.  Some of it is natural talent, but the rest is just practice - and a little bit of magic as well.  I still have trouble with faces.  Sometimes I get lucky and it works quickly - other times it can take days.  With my Loki drawing, I got him in two hours, but there is a Snape drawing that took me 4 days to get his face the way I wanted.  Another bit of advice - art classes can be great - but don't let a teacher push you to draw in a style you don't like.  It can be fun to experiment - but if you know what you like and how you want to draw, and they can't help you draw in that style - find the artist who do and figure out how they work.  My first years of art school I wanted to do photo realism.  All my professors wanted me to throw paint on a canvas with a knife.  Finally I sought out Illustration classes.  So that is my advice - that and have fun!!!  And have good references to draw from.  PS - if you're interested - I draw with a mechanical 5 mm pencil and when I really need to draw detail I use a 3 mm mechanical pencil.  I almost always draw on bristol board because I love the texture!
