ADAPTATION B: Modelling Techniques #1

Clay Model of a sketch of Amata
I made this model out of NewPlast plasticine, as a simple and generic featureless base to test out different shapes and looks that I like, and also to model clothes and costumes on. I modelled it from an early sketch of a character that I created. As my outcome is going to be a 3D printed model with a piece of set I have started early on sculpting and experimenting with clay and other materials to see what different things I can achieve with it.

I started out with a VERY simple wire armature, so I can achieve different poses and flexibility when I am trying out different costume designs and re-sculpting the character.

Fibre-like strands created from hot glue
I have also been experimenting with different materials and techniques to create environment pieces and costumes, for example clay flowers and foliage, paper, origami, hot glue and wire etc.
