Dump creature

For the last project we had I decided to work 3D for the first time to see if it was something I enjoyed. Turns out I really like it and will be doing more of it in the future. We were asked to create a character inspired by a chosen place. The character was supposed to represent the 'genius loci' (spirit) of the place, and I chose the dump. My dump creature is made out of many found objects : his legs are old exhaust pipes, his fur is an old rug which I stained with a mixture of coffee and tea, his face is decorated by broken china plates which I found at the dump, and he has old cutlery hanging from his body. My main inspiration for this project was the extremely talented sculptor AJ Fosik, who makes amazing wooden constructions of animal heads and such. His work should definitely be checked out! Here are some pictures of my dump creature taken in the WSA photographic studio (thanks for helping me Kat). Also thanks to Chantal and Grant for helping me set him up in the studio, it was quite a task! Hope you like it!
