I'm coming to the end of my degree and I'm trying to decide what to do once I complete it. I obviously have a talent for sculpting, casting and creating props so it would be natural to go into this sector as a career. Yet I am unsure how I would go about breaking into that industry. Working on film, theatre and Tv sets as a prop maker or designer would be amazing!
I am completely in awe of the costumes and props in "The lion king" stage show. Honestly the best show I have ever seen.
Also, I recently discovered therapy robots and feel like I could contribute to this industry by helping to create realistic furs and skins for these animals. A friend also suggested that I watch BBC spy in the wild, and these robots fascinated me. Although quite a few did not look very realistic, I see that my skills could be used for these kind of things!
Another interest of mine is special FX makeup. Including silicone masks and facepainting. So I definitely feel like the film/tv/theatre special effects and props department is where I should be, but how do you prove that you're good enough? And how do you find the jobs in the first place?
Fully posable one of a kind niffler! Inspired by the niffler in the new fantastic beasts movie, echidnas and platypus.
Due to his cheeky personality and overall cuteness I decided that I needed to make one!
As he is instantly recognisable I thought this would be a challenge for myself to try and make it as true to the film as possible after only seeing the film once, but also trying to keep the original animal influences in mind.
I looked at lots of images of echidnas and platypus to decide how to sculpt his hands, feet and beak. For his body I looked at the teddy bears I have previously made, as the niffler in the films is quite cute and I know there is a corelation between cute and the typical teddy bear body shape.
As with the majority of the art dolls that I make, he is entirely posable. You can turn his wrists and ankles as well as moving his head, legs and arms so that he can stand, sit or lie in different positions. He can also stand unaided. He also has a concealed pocket in his belly (like echidnas and nifflers). Echidnas use these in the same way kangaroos do, to raise their young, but a niffler uses it to store its loot!
After going to see the new film, based in the Harry Potter world; Fantastic beasts and where to find them.
I decided I would try to make my own Demiguise inspired by the movie and also by descriptions written on the pottermore website.
They are described as: "peaceful, ape-like herbivores with the ability to turn invisible when threatened"
They are also said to have long silvery hair, which is used to make invisibility cloaks (poor little Demiguise, being hunted for their fur).
My first Demiguise rather resembled the one from the film, I used a curly faux fur, which I brushed out so that it was more wavy than curly. I also used the same face cast that I use on my baby sloths! I painted this to resemble more of an ape than a sloth, I then sculpted hands using polymer clay and looked at lots of images of both monkey and chimp hands for inspiration.
I ordered the same fur again but was unfortunately let down by my supplier, so I had to find something new to make my next one. After hours of hunting the internet I finally found one I like much more than the original, the new finished Demiguise look less like the original from the film and more like a fuzzy baby version, which I like a lot more ! As you can tell, I seem to love all things cute.
