Froud inspired Goblin by OhSadface Froud inspired Goblin by OhSadface
WARNING LONG FILE:
Dude this little bastard was made in like record time! He was started Wednesday night D:< anyway this goblin was made for a 3d project were we found an artist, studied there work, then get a relic and make a reliquary around it. Well I chose Brian Froud for the artist and a ring my mom gave me for the relic and I chose fraud because my mother loves his art and especially his goblins..she thinks they are cute..
Now then I made him sort of a collector, he does not steal his treasures he finds them as you probably can’t see he has mix and match buttons and charms hanging off his belt sash, and in his palm a new found treasure ( the ring my mom gave me) I decided to give him a sweeter disposition then some of Frouds’ other goblins to not make him a sinister and thief like. I also was very careful on the fabrick I chose for his clothing..
OK listen I am not a seamstress, or a hatmaker, or a hairstylist, or even a fucking cobbler! Cut me some freakin’ slack on the clothing craftsmanship ;_;

Note: it looks a lot better in person and his skin has a warmer hue to it, my camera is just
a duche’ bag sometimes…

Materials: some fabrics, buttons, super sculpy, and acrylic paint.

That is absolutely beautiful work.

I've wanted to emulate Froud's style in paint and in miniature for a long time, I just never seem to work up the nerve.

I love the pose and the head! His eyes are so creepy but he's really well made, and I actually love how you dressed him. It matches the character. Goblins take what they find and use them, so it makes him look more scruffy and like he picked up random pieces where he could and made himself a little jester-like outfit. I think it suits him.

you always have to look past what is physical in a character and look for their characteristics and personality. How the character acts and does what he does, is what makes the character who they are. I love that you gave him so much character that I could practically hear his voice when I saw him. :thumbsup:

XD haha thanks! you -make- it look easy! XD But I suck at sculpting, man. I've had some gay experiences lol. They have a conceptual maquette class. You should totally take it!

Don't we have to take it?

:iconfyuvix:
Fyuvix Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
I don't think so... I'm pretty sure its an elective. The whole class is just maquette making. That's not necessary to a sequa major. But we have to do maquettes in the required character class

Ooh, I love it! Especially the blush on his ears, cheeks and nose. :D I really love the hat, too, and for what it's worth, I think the clothing looks super-nice. Who says goblins need to be skilled in the world of textiles, anyway?
