sooo.....My school has a 3D printer, So for my Intro to 3D class final I'm going to design a "vinyl" toy, it wont be vinyl, it'll be like the corn starch print out, but a designer toy none the less. I'm trying to go for a simple elegant shape where the pattern can be individualized.
This looks rather simple, but My teacher wants me to keep some high concepts in mind, and it is
my final. I had some more graffiti inspired looking things with big arms and heads and such, but teach wanted me to do something less standard and more personal. I'm going for the foo dog concept because I want it to represent both companionship and protection, which to me is the underlying reason people like to collect things and surround themselves with characters. I want this come across in the figure, and then back it up in a solid pattern/package design.
I'll be posting as I go along in the process.
