JSM Model Making Character Models & Creature Effects

For over 20 years, JSM’s sculpture studio has been creating character models to almost any size imaginable, from miniature maquettes to statues the height of a house. We have produced 3D models of many well-known characters for animation studios, toy manufacturers, theme parks, award ceremonies, and computer game companies; we are also able to design and produce 3D models of 2D characters from existing designs for use in exhibitions and retail spaces. We also produce smaller models such as prototypes of action figures and maquettes for character development.

Accurately recreating licensed characters is one of our key disciplines. Whether working from a quick pencil sketch or full 3D CAD data, we can produce a highly detailed master model of your character for you to check. The master model of your design will either be created using modern techniques (such as rapid prototyping) or hand-crafted by an experienced model maker. We can then take moulds from the master, enabling us to accurately and cost-effectively reproduce identical character models in-house using a wide range of materials depending on what the final model will be used for. The end model of the character can be supplied in hard-wearing, fire-retardant fibreglass, as well as other materials such as jesmonite, resin, and flexible or rigid foams. We excel in the creation of lifelike character models and creature effects – contact us now to discuss your requirements.
