Assignment #3

For this assignment I had a bit of writer’s block combined with not planning ahead for fabrication resources.

I was drawn to some of my previous acrylic layer artwork for this week’s assignment. This is an example I did for a Nier Automata character using a laser cutter and colored acrylic sheets.

I was thinking about creating character stand ups. I would make them by cutting out the figure and bonding the detailed layers to the form. Then create a stand like some old board games have. The stand I would design would illuminate the character from below.

While I would not end up doing this for my final. I do enjoy working in this medium and would like to continue doing some experiments and character rendering using this technique.

The challenge would be to use a character and pose that compliments transparent layers. I’ve learned about some techniques like sanding and polishing that opens some new doors for doors for me.
