Sand Isn't Just For Beaches

The Pregnant Sand Creature
Moping Sand CreatureSulking Sad Sand Creature
I decided to make some eerie sand creatures today. They're pretty fun to make and I might make some more. What inspired me to use sand in art today was a video somebody showed me. A talented artist from Ukraine named Kseniya Simonova makes sand art animations with music. She has plenty from what I saw on YouTube, but this is the one I watched and it's so sad but beautiful. - A must see!

I'm not sure exactly what they are but they are cute. I wonder if you could do a bunch of stills of them, string them together and make a mini-movie.

Probably too much work but still it's pretty interesting.

I was wondering the same a Tirz, you could do a movie from stills!
I'm not sure but is the first one an owl?
It looks like one.
They look so awesome anyway :)
And that video and the artist are great!

Sand art is awesome. I've never seen anything like it. It's interesting that art can come out of anything.

Tirz, that's a good idea. I've tried making photo-movies before but my camera sucks. The lighting never stays the same or the camera moves a little bit.

Maybe I'll try with this sometime! Thanks!
