Katrina Brooks - Project 2

Here is my rendering in context. I would have liked to use a backplate more significant to my work, however all images that I tried to use were unsuccessful in Keyshot.

Here is the piece that I created for Beginning Sculptural Processes 2. This was carved out of pink foam, covered with epoxy, and painted with acrylics. The hands and feet were caste in plaster from my own.

For my second project, I decided to design a model for a sculpture that I am making out of foam and epoxy in another class. The model I have designed is somewhat different from my sculpture. Both have the same pig form with human hands and feet and a bat, which represent a mythological creature. They differ in position and, of course, in material. Photos of my sculpture will be posted soon. My process for the model involved taking various parts of preexisting models and combing them using both Rhino and Maya. I then added the texture by using the extrude tool in Maya.
