I actually did this during my summer break a year ago.. But I only painted them last week..
These are characters from Slam Dunk manga and anime by Japanese artist, Takehiko Inoe. I really love this anime, because I can learn how to shoot with one hand from this comic book (volume 22). Besides, this comic is humorous (especially the red head guy) and have very good illustrations... It makes me feel I'm part of them every time I read this comic..
The red head guy (Sakuragi) dislikes the black hair guy (Rukawa), since Rukawa is a very talented basketball player and famous among girls (including the girl Sakuragi has crush on).
In this sculpture, I made Sakuragi bullying Rukawa, by painted the bomb he has, looks like basketball..
These were done on Sculpey soft, a piece of board, and unused badminton string. Painted with acrylic..

This was assignment from my 3d illustration class. I picked clay for my material and decided to sculpt about tennis.
It took me lot of time to make these (don't really remember how long, but more than 24 hours if I'm not wrong).
I was pretty happy with how it turned out, since this was my second times playing with Sculpey. But I had hard time to make the figures standing on the base..
I used wire, aluminum foil, super sculpey firm and soft one, oven, and acrylic

This was an assignment from my character design class. It was a fun assignment. Each of us at that class had to write down any physical shape and description, then exchanged it with classmates. Then we picked any number randomly, to get one personality to create the character we had from our classmate.
Mine was round, big, a bit short, and vain..

Sketches for my Giraffe

I did some sketches for the giraffe's look, before I decide I'll go with stupid innocent personality.. (bottom left one)


This one from my group project at character design class. My group was making a story about mafia, but we use animal as the characters.. There were penguin, elephant, bear, sparrow, owl, giraffe. And I was the one in charge to make the giraffe character... He is a lookout for the mafia group, but pretty stupid kind a innocent.
This assignment was one of the hardest one for me (I could say I never draw animals before), but I was pretty happy with how it's turned out...

Facial Expression

Another assignment for character design class. We need to make 5 expressions from one of characters we already created, and I picked my first character I made, Lester the mechanic...
One expression with 3/4 view from left side and right side...
Done in Photoshop CS4 and 5

My first character

This is my first character that I made for my character design class.. Our teacher let us did whatever we liked to make, and I made this one..
His name is Lester. A slow, clumsy, and low self-esteem mechanic

   I did this at my character design class. Basically, my teacher wanted us to play around with the shape and size from our original picture (the top center one is my original picture).
