Artist Research – Antony Gormley

Antony Gormley is a renowned sculptor best known for his ‘Angel of the North’ sculpture in Gatehead, England. My initial character drawings were quite chunky in proportions and reminded me of Gormley’s figures which are similarly rounded and broadly built. These sculptures have really helped me visualise my own characters and bring them to life to benefit my character development.
