This was my first attempt at sculpting.  Depicted here are 2 original characters I have had in mind for some time.

When sketching for 2d, I try to think of what I am drawing as a sculpture, in that if I moved the camera, they would look good from any angle.  Designing the sculpture and sculpting it was among the most fun I times I have ever had.

 

 If you shine a light and turn the maquette to a very specific angle you can see where I hid the name Faust.  During the period I worked on this, circumstances forced me to live far away from my very good friend Faust (my dog).  Though I enjoy putting hidden things in my work, this is the kind of hidden item I only allow myself on a personal project.
