In this two-disc DVD from The Gnomon Workshop, renowned artist Wendy Froud explains and demonstrates how to create a character figure of your own design.
Froud reveals her process in step-by-step detail, beginning with a discussion of how to use reference to inspire the look and feel of your designs. She sculpts three different character heads, covering a variety of techniques for giving personality to your figure, including facial expressions, wrinkles, and lines.
After painting each head and discussing ways to add skin details such as age spots, she chooses one head to turn into a full character. Froud then covers sculpting hands and feet, fabricating the body, and costuming the character complete with boots, hat, and staff.
Creating a Character Figure is meant to follow Froud’s first DVD, Creating a Faery Figure, and focuses on character sculpting and costuming without the same emphasis given to body fabricating.
Two-disc DVD. 205 minutes.
