Glad you like the Croc Richard, he's a lot simpler design than the Quisto dragon, I can't quite get my head around how he made those figures. My Croc is a traditional 'snappy' wooden-jawed style with layered papier mache top and bottom structures attached, and then detail added using card pulp/papier mache 'clay, with teeth added in Milliput.'
By the way, I've only ever seen the big Quisto Dragon/Croc, are there more 'Croccy' crocs out there? Anyone got pics?
First on list to finish is dog, probably then Croc and Scary Ghost....
Over the last year I've been experimenting/playing about with various types of papier mache clay, firstly to see what it can do, but also to explore different 'styles' and sizes of heads. My own favourite style has been the Wal Kent, it's sort of become a classic design, and achieves so much in what are a few simple (but subtle) lines and shapes.
But I also like to see people's individual, 'quirky' style of head and have been looking for 'my own style.'
Working in 2 or 3D in various media my own style is usually exact and clean cut, (explains my Graphics background,) but I really admire much 'looser' approaches'. Problem is if one 'tries' to change one's style, perhaps tries to produce something more 'naive' it doesn't quite work, but I've had-a-go anyway, trying not to repeat previous designs, and sometimes by leaving some design decisions to chance, and often just 'seeing how things develop.'
As if I haven't got enough to do today, with all I've got to do today.
