    Default Dom's Sketchbook

    Been some time since I posted (or did) any work. Here's something I've been working on. Sculpted and rendered in 4r2. I'm planning to print this model at 1/4 or 1/6 scale so I'd appreciate if anyone can recommend a good place to do this. Thanks for looking!

    Beautiful sculpt Dom, and very nice material!
    Regarding printing I can recommend Lightbeam 3D. They printed my creature and base and even though it was in a quite small scale the details showed through.
    You can view a sample of the print in this thread.
    As a 1/4 or 1/6 scale the print should even get better.
    Hope that helps

    Cheers

    Cool. Love the muscle detail. Good luck with the prints. I have no experience in that field, though I am interested myself.
    No one ever expected a pencil to draw for them.

    Habib- thanks man. yeah I'm a huge fan of guyver!

    VictorCG- he gets braingasm..duh hurhur hur

    Cheshire- i've gotten in touch with Ownage. I've seen some of the prints from shapeways and they look pretty bad in quality.

    locusta- thanks dude. takeya is my idol, i love a lot of the work he does.. especially his takes on kamen rider.

    Nattawat/ RagenRock- thanks!

    braseN- Hmm i didn't get to use any of the new features from 4r2 because this model is pretty old. I find the dynamesh feature interesting, that said, I have tried building a body from a sphere and it kind of defeats the purpose if you have a nice basemesh on hand. It's something I'm going to play around more with. I used the claybrush for building inital shapes and the dam brush for cutting and form brush for volume tweaks at the end.

    Etchelion- thanks for the recommendation. i'll get in touch with Scott, looks like they do good work. that demon print you did looks awesome!

    mrwednesday- thanks! I started off with some zspheres, at first i only planned on doing the head and neck but later on decided to work on his torso too. There isn't much technicality to it, just straight forward sculpting.. build forms first at lower subd and work on detailing much later. For posing, just have to keep things assymetrical and give it some nice flow. The design process was the biggest learning process for me.

    sheaspina- thanks!

    poda- i should get pics soon I hope. I'll post them here. Thanks.

    So I've sent in this piece for a 4 inch print just to take a look at the forms and how everything looks, then I'll make any changes needed and eventually, plan to make a 6-7 inch bust of this (pending price of course, seems pricey so far :P) I'll update this thread when I get some pics. Thanks for looking.

    Yeah shapeways cheapest stuff is rough but the rest are good... I'll have to check out ownage when their site is back up ... always good to learn about new printers... I have used imaterialized before a little bit more then shapeways but they have different material selection.. I have to say i come back every few days to just look at the alien ... awesome work

    Thanks man.
    Scott is a very friendly person, I'm sure you'll arrive at an arrangement.

    See ya.
