Here are some of my students working on their maquettes. First they sketch a few character designs, then they  draw a model sheet with different points of view, to be used as reference to sculpt maquettes. The students final assignment is to pair with each other and draw a  comic page with the two characters talking .   

A few colourful students!

Patience is an asset.

Humour is essential!

Here I am in my studio working on this maquette I made, for my character design class. I use it to show students the process of making their own cartoonish maquette version, of themselves. First we make a wire and tinfoil armature, then cover it with Super Sculpey a polymer clay, then we sculpt it and bake it then paint it!
