Sculpture: The Beast

This is my interpretation of the traditionally animated character "The Beast" from Disney's Beauty and the Beast (1991) as a character in the round!

Materials:  Super Sculpey, Aluminum Wire, Floral Wire, Aluminum Foil, Epoxy, and finished with Acrylic Paint

The Beast was my final project, made using my professor's professional process! An armature secured with floral wire and epoxy putty, filled in with foil, secured with floral wire again, and then clay outside all of that!

The following drawings were done from live observation of animals at the Los Angeles Zoo. Straight from my sketchbook, this selection of sketches are all done in dark brown Prismacolor colored pencil on regular sketchbook paper.

Boris Bear: Ranger House Set

This environment is for my short film about Boris Bear. In it you can see the trees I have been building, which now make up the forest around a ranger's simple house. This is the first pass at the environment, so it may undergo some changes later as the rest of the space is built. The scene takes place in daytime just after a rain storm has passed, so it is somewhat gloomy.
