1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Lego Stormtrooper animation and stills on: February 11, 2009 05:44:40 PM

Not really sure if animation belongs on craftster? But i dont see why i shouldn't.....

I just completed this stop frame animation.  I used Final Cut Pro, Photoshop and Macromedia Flash.  I captured the images of the lego stormtrooper using a blue screen, well actually a bedsheet which was problematic when it came to keying out the background (so many shadows and creases - maybe an iron wouldve saved me a couple of hours!).  I used Photoshop to key out the blue screen and then layed the images on top of a shot of a drain i shot.  The other backgrounds are images i created in Photoshop layering the different elements.  The rain at the begining and umbrellas were created and animated using Macromedia Flash.

Id love to hear what you think.


and some stills:

2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Lego Stormtrooper 1:6 on: February 11, 2009 05:19:04 PM


This is a replica project I just completed, enlarging a lego storm trooper 1:6.
The body is created in wood, sprayed to give a high gloss finish of plastic.  I sculpted the head in plasterline and then created a silicone mould and cast it in fiberglass resin.  Bit of a dodgy paint job, i need more practise in painting....but quiet pleased.
Would love some feedback, thanks.

Ive also just completed an animation with a lego stormtooper.  Its posted on Youtube at:

3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Ssssnake Hatching..... on: February 24, 2008 10:11:52 AM
Ive always found the snake quite fascinating, such a powerful animal with beautiful detail.
A friend has 2 adult snakes and a load of babies so after studying (or  playing) with them she gave me some of their shed skins and hatched eggs to look at.  I also found this beautiful picture of two hatching eggs (bottom)and with some time on my hands.

Thankyou for looking id really love to hear what you think and any advice...

4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Un Chien Andalou on: January 26, 2008 10:01:20 AM
Un Chien Andalou is one of the best-known surrealist films of the French avant-garde film movement of the 1920s, written by Luis Buuel and Salvador Dal.  I hadn't seen the film before i worked on this project so its interesting to see how differently to film makers interpreted the script to me.

From the prologue:
Once Upon a Time ...

A balcony at night.

A man is sharpening a razor by the balcony. The man looks
at the sky through the window-panes and sees ...

A light cloud moving toward the full moon...........


I created.....

Almost everything is made from Super Sculpy except form:
-the creepers made from miliput
-balcony wood flooring from mountboard carved
-trees from twigs
-wallpaper printed

Close up of the character sharpening his knife.

back of character

The original scene can be seen on youtube at...

This is my first time working from a script and was also very experimental in trying to recreate surfaces such as brickwork and wood and make a character work within a scene.

Thankyou for looking i would love to hear your thoughts..

6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Mighty Boosh's Vince Noir on: December 06, 2007 09:48:51 AM
Here is my Mighty Boosh's Vince Noir completed with glitterball suit...id love to hear what you think....

also another head shot..

Ok, so loving the tv programme Mighty Boosh and couldn't resist a quick caricature project of noel fielding's flamboyant character Vince Noir.  Its a bit shabby and only a head, thinking i might do the whole "glitterball" body but not sure the head justifies continuing.  Anyway, hear goes, id love to hear what anyone thinks....thanks xx

ps. going to try and get better pictures
7  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / PETE DOHERTY: Super Sculpy on: September 09, 2007 02:06:08 PM
Hello...this is my first post and most recent completed project.
Its a small sculpture (approx.10cm) of the legend ( Grin!) that is..pete doherty.
I wanted to portray him as a thoughtful, intellectual but misguided artist.
It is created entirely of Super Sculpy using a wire frame and then painted using enamels.  I had a few problems with cracking (particularly around the arms and waist) and any suggestions on preventing this in future would be greatfully appreciated...anyways here goes...

and the original...

Thanks for looking!!
ps..kate moss coming soon
