PLAY TIME OR WORK????
Here I performed a series of sketch studies aimed at creating a unique artistic style for these toys, and begin the primary solution for character articulation.
Refining character concepts to one base idea from which other characters can be assembled from working in traditional sketch format and then moving into preliminary 3-D sketching to give me a better sense of form, construction, and articulation.
Throughout the entire work process always looking back to research for inspiration
Character sets that are designed in the same vein as Villiandorf. Each character has a "power core" set in his body. This is represented by a floating magnet, which the user can alter by moving the character's magnetic hand around the core.
Villiandorf is a pre designed set which the user can build exactly as shown. He comes with alternate accessories so the user can alter his design and create a customized character. His magnetic "power core" is located in his oversized belly.
