Model sheets are super helpful for seeing a character from different angles. Now let’s take that idea to the next level!


In the early days at Disney Feature Animation Studios, the artists would use a character maquette, a small sculpture of the character, to help them know how to draw that character from any angle necessary. Today, we will continue that classic tradition by learning how to make a 3D sculpture of your character you created in lesson 8.


In this lesson, I will give you a full set of instructions and a list of materials you will need in order to create your maquette easily in your own home. Get your sculpting tools ready as I explain step by step, how to make a maquette, from Armature to Z axis!
