Young Girl Sculpture

Sculpture of a young girl I am preparing to 3D print. Sculpted in Mudbox & ZBrush. Rendered in Arnold.

Wednesday, September 18, 2013


Here is a preview of one of the characters I have been working on. She started of as just a bust sculpt but after a while I started to like her design so much that I decided to really take this piece all the way. I will be finishing up the details and texture work this month tol have her posed and ready for print shortly after! I will be shooting for a larger scale print on this one, hopefully in the 12"-16" range with a nice large base. 

Her inspiration is derived from a mixture of a mermaid imagery, leafy sea dragons, and coral. More to come!

Gone Social

As some of you may have noticed, the blog has been re-designed from the ground up using the strength of Google's new-ish Dynamic Blogger templates. I have fully customized it to my needs using the help of southernspeakers. They have a bunch of great CSS tips for modifying these dynamic templates.

I have added a bunch of new social media links on the right. If you enjoy my post, 3D printing, digital sculpting I encourage you to follow me on any of them you use. I know everyone has their preference for social media and some refrain from using it at all. If that is you, you can always follow the blog directly via email using the  RSS box.

I will be posting some exciting news regarding Makerfare coming up in about a week!

Happy Printing.

How small can you go?

I often get asked the question, how small can your printer print? Well I decided to scale down that skull print this week and see how well it does. Overall quite well. The only part that did not come through all the way is the connection of the Zygomatic Process. That said, that part of the model was really thin to begin with, even on the full size print. I would probably have to thicken it up just a tad if I needed that part to come through properly. Pics below! The size of the "large" skull is 1" wide x 1 3/8" long (front to back) The tiny skull is about 5/16 wide and 6/16 long (front to back). Both skulls were printed @ 25 micron with clear resin. See previous post with pictures of the large skull here.
