Milt Kahl's designs work in 2 dimensions. They are flat and graphic in the most sophisticated way imaginable. His drawings always show a magnificent tension between straight and curved lines. Inventive shapes and lines based on a lifelong research of realistic animals and humans. You might think that his aesthetics could not be faithfully translated into 3 dimensions.
Think again! Sculptor Andrea Blasich totally nails Milt's extraordinary style in 3 D. His work is a great tribute to one of the most important artists of the 20th century. The looseness of his sculptures reflect Milt Kahl's rough drawings, full of life and appeal.
One of these days I am going to break down and order a whole bunch of these wonderful maquettes.
Andrea's website includes characters from other studios as well as private work:
Beautiful! Thank you for sharing these wonderful maquettes by Andrea Blasich.ReplyDelete
I am usually disappointed when I see drawn characters forced into a CG/"3D" version (there is always something "off" about the CG versions) but these truly 3-dimensional sculptures capture the spirit of the original designs.

If you're talking about Milt, I think you mean the 20th century.
Yep. Corrected it.Delete
I have the King Richard sculpture. I love it. Very well done piece for sure.ReplyDelete
I apologize that this question doesn’t have to do with this post but I just found your blog and I’m so curious: what was the reason behind drawing Scar with different paws? One having the toe pads there and one fully colored inReplyDelete
I absolutely love these!ReplyDelete
I don't even sculpt much, but these are so beautiful that I would love to look into learning how!ReplyDelete
