This is the first maquette for my Conceptual Maquette class. The requirement was to do a realistic sculpture of a famous person, with a more-or-less non-dynamic pose. 'Tis Angela Lansbury as Mrs Lovett, from the Sondheim broadway show "Sweeney Todd." (I took image refs from the DVD version)
There's no denying I love Angela as Lovett more than Helena Carter, because Carter's singing sounds like butt. But hey, I love the movie too. My original plan was to do Timothy Spall as Beadle Bamford, but I couldn't get any good reference pictures of his full costume.
I'm not a big fan of the plumbing-pipe support system, because it looks so gosh-darn ugly, but that's what we were required to use for the first maquette. Puu. I'm quite happy with the way the folds of the clothing turned out, though I really should've sanded them smoother. I also like her face, but I think I made her look older than she does on the dvd. :<
