Art Toy Creation : Learn how to design, build and model a unique and collectible 3D character
Halfway between artistic sculpture and toys, Art Toys are collectible figurative characters for exhibitions, events, or private collectors, according to graphic designer and illustrator Luaiso López. The playful and creative aesthetics of Luaiso’s works bring together his two passions: animation and video games.
Learn how to make an Art Toy, beginning from the concept creation stage to the final presentation, with the help of Luaiso. By the end you will create a unique three-dimensional figure, adding your own style to it.
About this course
You’ll begin this trip exploring Luaiso’s professional career and seeing how he got started in the world of creating Art Toys, before getting to know his artistic influences.
Stimulate your creativity in the second unit by generating a series of ideas from which you can base your Art Toy. Then you’ll draw and make the first sketches of your piece, expressing your own style and using references that have caught your attention.
In the next unit, you’ll get your hands dirty and start building your toy from the sketch. Learn how to assemble the skeleton, add volume and finish the structure to take the piece to the oven. Then, you’ll see how to introduce the colors and last touches.
