Last class, Lisa gave us 20 minutes to make a 3D character out of a variety of materials stuck together with a good ol' glue gun. This was my character made from cardboard, tissue, buttons, pipe cleaners, and an acorn cap:
Over the next half hour, we had to draw this character in different poses, from different angles, while varying our medium. Here are four images from that exercise:
The main point of this exercise was to create a model that we would be able to adjust and pose for a sequence, be able to model shadows and realistic angles, as well as be able to extrapolate into a usable character for a story. I really like Figure 3. It is the same pose as Figure 1, but the expression of Figure 3 works somehow. She looks like a spunky character. Let's call her Hazel.
Sketches are pen and graphite, or just graphite.
