    Woodsman Maquette

    This was my first real super sculpy attempt. I came up with this for my Creative Pre-Production class. The story goes:

    A clumsy woodsman walks into the forest that he has been harvesting. Little did he know that this forest would soon save his own life. The Woodsman Walks up to a tree. Inside of a knothole, in that tree lives a frog, who is reading quietly on his bed. All of a sudden the tree shakes violently, causing the frog to be jarred out of bed. He sticks his head out to see a woodsman chopping down his tree.

    The frog jumps on the man's head to stop him from destroying his home. The man wildly flails his arms trying to get rid of the tree frog, and accidentally lands his axe deep in his leg. The man flops on his back, and begins to bleed nearly to death. The frog feels bad for the man, and goes into the forest to fetch a medicinal leaf. The frog returns, dresses the man's wound, and the leaf heals him. The man is so moved by this experience, that he puts down his axe, and becomes a farmer.

    I am very close to finishing the painting of the maquette, so i will post those soon.

    Thanks for taking a look at my post! Feel free to comment/let me know what you think.

    But the story I get without reading your description is.

    Do the legs look a little short?

    Good job!

    Hey Its finally finished, and photographed. I finished this project (along with storyboards, animatic, 5 pt character turn, expression sheets color script etc...) in 5 weeks. Not bad considering I was also working on an animated short during the first 3 weeks.

    Enjoy

    Thanks for the comments! I will be joining a sculpting class at my school with an awesome sculptor who has worked at ILM on some pretty cool movies. I cant wait to take another try at sculpting, but this time it will be faster and easier. Plus I wont have all that other stuff to work on as well.
    Thanks again for visiting my thread!
