The Making of 3D Ladybug

Ladybug has gone 3D for her next book. This video shows the process of creating her. I made her fully posable, because I will be photographing her later in stop motion. Every part works, including the wings, wing casings, flippers, propeller, arms and even the hands can grasp things! Some of the techniques and materials used were aluminum wire armature, oven hardening Sculpy, Plasticene, papier maché, wire reinforced paper, gesso, acrylic paint, etc.
