What I've Been Up To...

Here's a little bit of what I've been up to recently...

I wanted to make something special for Halloween so I made this little lady:

The original concept
I'm also sculpting her at the moment but we'll see how successful that is :D


Below is an illustration I had the idea for when I was listening to an Alice in Wonderland audio book:

These two are footman from the book and I love that they seem really stupid so I might just carry them through to 3D. They could just be so much fun with their powdered hair :D

Dachsusaurus Update!..

Now with fur!

He needed a bit of a trim (which went surprisingly well!) and he needs a little more dinosaur-ness so I'll plan that while working out how to paint him. Also, I'm gonna rejig his ears as they're not really reading as ears just yet :)

Natty Featured on Toy Design Served!..

I woke up this morning to find an email informing me that my Natty toy had been featured on Behance's Toy Design Served:

See! It's true!
This was very exciting for me and I did roll around like a mad man when I found out.  Here's the link so you can pop over and see for yourself! :D

The Dachsusaurus!..

I was inspired after looking at posable art dolls by artists such as Magweno and Wood Splitter Lee, so I made a little armature myself:

After seeing the picture Phill Hosking said he looked like a dinosaur/Dachsund and as that was way cooler than anything I could come up with, I ran with it:

It'll be adding fur and ears of some sort, then painting next. But he's pretty darn cute so far! :D

*If you're interested yourself, you can find one of Magweno's many tutorials (and the one I'm using) here*

Some Finished Sculpts...

All sculpted, painted and sewn by me :D

 Gentleman Edamame!

The image he's based on.
And Wonder Girl!

The character by Art Baltazar that she's based on.

Lots of fun and lots of learning here! They're both a little lumpy bumpy so hopefully the next ones will be much smoother :P
