What else can I do for you?
The Vehicles of 'Shaun the Sheep 2'
During the production of 'Shaun the Sheep 2' I designed and 3D printed nine new cars and one hero van. Designed and printed at 1/6th scale these vehicles pushed the limits of 3D printing for animation production. Each vehicle was printed with the additional support of Pinewood Studios Ltd. Images coming soon (once the film is released).
The Ball - 'Early Man'
During the production of "Early Man' I sculpted and 3D printed the hero ball for the film. In total I printed over 80 balls which were finished by the Art Department.
Puppets and Engineered parts
3D printed muppets and puppets using highly engineered parts, designed to work with specific hardware.
High quality traditional illustration. Available as prints at https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/AlexParkinArt
I can also make quite a nice shed...
