My viking model, digitally coloured in Photoshop. I’m fairly lousy with Photoshop so I’m actually really pleased with how this has turned out. Wahey! I’ve changed the colours from the original drawing but I quite like him.
I just finished my sculpt of this viking based on this drawing by Nico Marlet. It’s from the Dreamworks ”Art of How To Train Your Dragon” book. I love all the character designs and concept drawings in it and I thought this one would make a good sculpture.
I wanted to try turning a 2D design into a 3D model so I made this guy out of Super Sculpey with a coat of grey primer. I’ll hopefully get around to doing a digital paint of it to see what it’d be like in colour.
Picture frame made from Sculpey, primed and ready to paint. This hangs on the dining room wall in my animation.
Stop-motion puppet I’m working on at the moment for a personal project. I’m making a short animation for my portfolio. Her head is Super Sculpey, hands are dipped latex, body is aluminium wire with milliput for bone areas. There’s also wire in the ears of her bunny slippers so I can animate them when she’s walking (depending how ambitious I’m feeling for the shot).
This is her second head because the first one I made was rubbish and her second pair of eyes because I forgot to prime the first ones so the paint started peeling off, which is a shame as I liked the old eyes better. Ah well!!
I just need to make eyebrows and some mouths for her and she’s done.
Little character I’ve made for my stop-mo animation short. I came runner-up in the Ray Harryhausen Scrapbook Animation Competition so I won the chance to make my animation and have it screened at the Barbican in London, along with some other awesome prizes :D Wheee! Delighted! I posted the storyboard here a while back, if you want to see the story I’m making.
So my little man is mostly finished. Today I’m making a latex cast of the hill and tree trunk. I sculpted them in clay on Tuesday and made a plaster mould which I cleaned out yesterday after work so it should be ready to go with the latex. I also want to get started on the monster head and neck which I’m making separately to the rest of the body (the body is the hill).
Busy day today :) But it’s great coz I got a new desk this week from Ikea so now I have somewhere to work that’s not the kitchen table! *YAY*
This is Rodrigo. He’s going on a miniature weather vane.
The lid for the octagonal box prop I made. Sculpey on mdf.
These are the panels I sculpted for a friend of mine to use in her stop-motion graduate film :) They were used to make up the sides of an octagonal box which was the main prop in the film. Each panel is sculpted in relief using Sculpey polymer clay on a 7x7cm square of mdf and then cast in resin. Hurray! Tiny details!
The white bits that you can see (the skull and the soldiers in the battle scenes) were resin casts of Warhammer pieces that I was given to work around.
