Finch Maquette: Taking Shape

This week I busted out the clay and attempted some Finch models, and it's been really exciting to see him taking shape! The point of the exercise is to help me envision the character from all angles, and it's already helped a lot with the structure and sense of depth in my sketches, which is awesome - I was feeling kind of stuck before. Next Tuesday's post: new and improved character drawings which means goodbye for now, clay - hello again, graphite.

If you're interested in attempting your very own maquette, by the way, you should check out this video by illustrator Shawna JC Tenney - I sort of followed this process and found it very helpful!
