Zazu

EDIT: PLEASE stop asking me if you can buy/rent this puppet or if I'll make one for you. He has been gone for years and I don't plan on making another one for your school's event. THANK YOU

I've been wanting to share this with everyone for a while, but I finally just got some good photos of him. This is actually my first puppet I built and he was built two years ago.


This is my version of Zazu from the Lion King, and he's based off of the Zazu puppet from the Lion King on Broadway. Since he was my first puppet, he's definitely the one that I learned the most from. His eyes blink, his mouth moves, and his wings flap. The feathers on the wings, the back of his head, and his tail are all able to be posed in different positions to show different emotions.

Here's a quick video of some of his functions:

Happy Eskimo

Zbrush

This was my final piece for my Zbrush class last year. He also made a great Christmas card. He was a ton of fun to sculpt!

Society of Illustrators!

I just wanted to make a quick announcement. I recently got this piece into the Society of Illustrators Student Competition!

 Paper and Gouache

It's a great honor to have my work included in the gallery with so many other talented artists! You can check out the rest of the winning entries here- http://www.soicompetitions.org/?section=gallery&competition_id=72 . If anyone is in the New York area, I would greatly suggest going to check out the show.

What's truly amazing is that this is actually my second time getting my work into the society. Two years ago I was able to get into the Student Competition with this piece.

Scratchboard

I just wanted to share my excitement with everybody and say how grateful I am of everyone's support! :>
