Work Experience - Darryl Worbey Studios
I was again working with Darryl yesterday in his workshop.
I’ve worked there a couple of times, and I love how just being in the workshop and watching the puppets gives me a great insight into the industry.
At the moment i’ve been given the task to make the arms for these re- occurring ventriloquist puppets :)
I’m having fun and hoping to fit more and more experience into this summer!
Here’s my Female Deer in Action.
Here we were contemplating just taking the back off as we felt it was too static.
The Replica Project was the first Project we were given at the start of my course.
Here we were asked to replicate a toy by either x6, x8 or x10 larger.
I decided to go for the x10 largest scale possible. This toy was purchased at “the entertainer” and I call them the wooden blocks. They are small brightly coloured blocks which have a thin elastic running through the middle allowign you to create different shapes with them.
I then had to replicate this toy. I used a hardwood sandwiching pieces together to create 13 duplicate blocks. the space in between cut using a band saw and then sanded to perfection. Bungee used in comparison to the thin elastic the original toy had.
We were then asked to create a professional looking film poster using Photoshop CS4 after a couple of Photography classes in the studio. “Alone” is what screamed out to me when I selected this photo. And therefore Alone is what it would be.
I managed to get me a 2:1 for this Project which I was very proud about, but it’s always worth aiming higher!
Paint With Your Heart
This has to be one of my all time favourite paintings. When painting this I remember being in such a relaxed mood. A peaceful content mood and i think that’s what easedme into painting. I usually fear away from painting, and since my dad is a Painter.. I should be expressing exactly how I feel on paper more.
Aanand Ewins, the model, but the painting was drawn and pained from a photograph.
