Another model used for illustration purposes, made from clay, wood and a bit of fabric. Photographed and manipulated a little in photoshop. I wanted to create a very quick piece of illustration work for my portfolio.

Well done, yeah Kip was my main inspiration for this piece, he's so awsome!
I'm not sure what a light bomb is but it sounds useful. What I did though was to make the desk and computer as one prop and make it all hollow. I lined the whole if the insides with tin foil to make it reflective, put a hole throught from the desk to the monitor, and put a regular lightbulb in the desk, if that makes any sense. Thanks for checkin' it out!

Nice work. They almost seem to be stills from a claymation. I hope there is more to come.

bingus: Thanks, I started illustrating in this style after seeing stills from some Aardman stuff many years ago, I thought they looked great as images. I have some older stuff which I might post and I have some new images in the works, as well as a website soon hopefully.

0-hermit-0: Thank you, from the base to the top of his head he stands at about 8" tall, although below the desk he is just a mound of tinfoil, I only made what would be seen so no legs or anything.
