The Character Maquette Realized
Finally tore myself away from feverish storyboarding on Carry On to finish this maquette.
Somewhat imperfect in its fine details, it is completely usable now for its purpose--to show me any angle I desire of this character.
It has been baked (275°f for 1/2 hour) so now instead of having clay-like malleability, it is hard like a soft stone and can be sanded or carved. I may do some sanding just to smooth it out, but as it is only a drawing aid and not for public display, it is basically finished.
I could also paint it if I wanted to, preferably using flat acrylics, but I doubt that I will go that far.
I can now even see that one extreme angle that got me started, looking up at him from below his chin.
