Sometimes to match colours better, masks were hand-painted.
The Riri Leech is very fragile as a 3D printed design, where unlike injection moulded plastic, the layered construction is very fragile.
Sometimes a print has a slight error in dimensions. Luckily that's where drills and files come to fix the issue.
As part of my packaging design for the Toa, I created triangular lids with modular connection point.
While 3D printing spools come in a variety of colours, sometimes it is just quicker to visit a local art store and pick out the perfect colour to match the plastic I like.
All ocean scenes were photographed and filmed at a beach in August, where I would climb off a platform into waist-deep water to shoot my creations floating around.
On days where I worked during most of the daylight hours, I had a mini shore scene where I could work for the last few hours of light when I got home.

This website was created to showcase my skills in Industrial Design, 3D Printing, Graphic Design, Branding, Web Design, and Storytelling through text and video. If you like this site and you need to hire a Toy Designer, please contact me to review my portfolio because I am looking for work!
The Hero masks and extruded triangle lids were my own designs I used to create new characters and packaging for easier shipment and display of plastic/cardstock canisters that would contain the toy pieces and building instructions inside.
