Pokémon or Pocket Monsters is a variety of species in the Pokemon franchise. Each Pokemon has unique abilities they use in battles. Many evolve into powerful Pokemon that can use stronger moves.
There are professors, who study different aspects of Pokemon and Human interaction. Pokemon can range from small fish like creatures or cosmic time shifting creatures.
For the Red Trainer figurine I wanted a slim character with a dramatic stance, whose arm was extended, so I could add the Pokemon ball thing to the hand, for this I chose the Iceman figurine by Eaglemoss.
Very little needed to be done to prep' the figurine, with just the removal of his belt buckle, and Icicle from his left hand. I followed this by carefully bending his right arm in to a more suitable position. I then cut his right hand off, and re-attached it in reverse, so as to have him holding the ball in the palm of his hand.
This was another one of those sculpts where it was more involved than I thought it would be. I started with his trainers, then built up the layers of his trousers. This was then followed by creating the look of his T-Shirt sitting on top of his trousers, making sure it fell naturally, with some creases in. I then added the wrist folds of his gloves, and the sleeves of his jacket. The final part of the main body was to build the jacket, with it slightly open. I try and make material look as natural as possible, with creases, and the way it would hang. You have to take gravity in to consideration for a more believable look. Once this was done I added the raised collar.
This just left the head area, I started with his hair, laying small bits of Milliput around his ears, and the front and back of his head. Once this had set I carved lines in to the hair to make it look like hair. I added the cap in two stages, first the main head-piece, then finally the peak.
