In my previous post I was working on a little side project for a Laika creative challenge. The theme was 'movie stars'. You could create scene,character, environment based on a film in any medium. You could either create something from an already existing film or make up a whole new character/scene.
So I decided to create a certain Mr Forrest Gump! Hopefully it resembles him a bit, not so much in a realistic way but more of a fun style. Here are the entries that you can click like on to vote for.
After the epic burn, here are the trainers re-made..
The hands I tried making and for some reason was having a lot of trouble with. I did do them like I've done in the past (the peacock legs/feet) using liquid latex but it went pretty messy. So in the end I opted for sculpey for quickness and as its a still model.
So that's that. I really enjoyed this as a little side project, as well as continuing working on with the FNA project. Whilst I had some little problems with this and there are things I would change- I really did learn a lot from it. It's helped me a lot and I'm clearer on what I need to work on and build upon. I want to try more with sculpting better heads, creating a better technique for the hands, clothing etc and I think making armatures is something I really want and need to work on. So all in all, a good beneficial thing to work on.
