Laputa Robot Sculpt

If you’ve ever watched any of the Studio Ghibli films created by the famed Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki, you may surely have been inspired. The films are full of exceptional visuals, inspiring characters, and meaningful values.

One such favorite film of mine is Castle in the Sky. Within this anime a boy and a girl embark on a magical adventure to discover an ancient civilization long forgotten,  attempting to outrun their constant pursuers and looming threat of danger at every turn.

One of the great moments in the movie is when the duo encounter the Robot of Laputa. I really loved this character and thought it would make a great sculpture project. So the following gallery of images displays some of the process of this sculpt. I hope you enjoy!
