A little Purple dude I made one day while I was bored. I’m trying to use very basic shapes for characters experiments; I’m curious to see just how simple you can make a character while still suggesting a personality. The purple abstract shape beside him in the 2nd pic was another experiment with the same colours.
My favourite thing about him is his feet, I have a preoccupation with spheres, and sculpting those cartoony toes made me pretty happy! He now sits in my studio staring at me all day.
*Technical note* This was my first time trying out a polymer clay technique called “caning” or “millefiori" - that’s how I made the spiral pattern on his body. I used a very simple pattern since I am a beginner, but I will attempt more complex designs when I’m more confident.
