Toy Story Character Sculptures #2

For the first post showing Bo Peep, her 3-headed sheep, Chuckles the Clown, and the Hockey Puck, see this link:

Here are a few more Toy Story inspired sculptures I've done over the last 18 months.

Trixie, Bonnie's dinosaur toy-
Trixie was my most time consuming Toy Story project, and definitely the largest.  This was by far the most difficult replica I've done.  She is over 16.5" long and it took me 60+ hours to complete.

The Robot:
 I made two of these, and they took about 40 hours each. They are 9.5" tall.  The robot has so many details that were challenging, yet the result is really fun.

 Now I need to show you the snake, because Robot and Snake are best buddies and they are almost always seen together in the Toy Story movies.

Snake is pretty fun to make.  I have made several snake replicas, they are jointed and each section moves.

That is it for today.  I have many more sculptures to share with you, so check in again to see the next round.

Thanks for stopping by!

Toy Story Inspired Character Sculptures

I have had a group of Toy Story collectors asking me to make 3-D reproductions of various Toy Story characters over the last 18 months.  Making 3-D reproductions of computer animated toys is not my favorite thing to do, but I have continued to do it because these collectors are VERY persistent and some of the characters are a lot of fun.  They have all posed challenges, and some were not fun at all to sculpt. All of them take a lot of time (usually way more time than I expected). Overall I think I am a better artist now because of this work, and ultimately that is the most valuable thing I have received from doing these sculptures.  Here are a few of the Toy Story characters I've reproduced:

Bo Peep's 3 Headed Sheep-
This is one of my favorites.  I just love the character of the sheep's faces.

Little Bo Peep- She was one of my most difficult sculptures.  Everything is so detailed on her, and I was SO HAPPY the day she was finished!

Chuckles the Clown-  This one was actually pretty fun.  He has a soft body with sculpted head, hands and feet.  I love sculpting clowns.

Hockey Puck-  This is an obscure character from the first Toy Story movie.

These are just a few of the many I have made.  I'll post again soon with some more images of Toy Story Characters.
