Mike Giant is an incredibly talented artist and illustrator, and it was with great pleasure that we sculpted his Toypunks mascot character for production in vinyl by Reckless Toys.
Mike's clean, bold illustrative style seems like it would be easy to sculpt...no feathers, no scales, no tiny, intricate detail. But illustration this distinct provides a completely different set of challenges when making the jump 2D to 3D. Building correct proportions, making sure that a simple figure maintains the character of the drawing and is still engaging to the viewer is more difficult than it looks. We're incredibly pleased with how well this sculpt communicated the drawing to 3D.
