Hobo Kitty 3-D









I did this piece some time ago to experiment with materials. I started with Super Sculpey, but given the characters thin wrists and ankles I could tell it was not going to work. Luckily my friend and 3-d artist extraordinaire Kevin Buntin turned me on to Apoxie Sculpt. It's not the easiest material to work with, but it is remarkably versatile stuff once you get a handle on it.

The armature is made of tin foil and wire. A thin coat of Apoxie Sculpt covers that which in turn is carved, sanded or dremeled as needed.

Hobo Kitty should be the next Nickelodeon cartoon hit! Think of all the amazing, strange encounters he could have along his vagrant travails!
