    Default “ Fairwell-and-adieu “ Likeness Resin bust

    Hey guys,


    Earlier in the year, Me and a friend Iain Gonzalez of White Shark Gaming talked about doing a likeness bust.
    Well the bust is finish and I thought I would give its little post process blog.


    We are a both big fans of the film “Jaws” and love the character Quint.


    Robert Shaw in that role is fantastic and I was excited to give him a shot.
    Before I started I gathered a load of screen grabs from the film and laid them out in Pureref . Great bit of software.


    This image steps you through my process a bit. I grabbed a based mesh I had lying around.
    I always start by figuring out the land marks of the face and there placement relative to each other.


    Once Iain and I were happy. I prepared the model of casting.
    Sounds weird saying that since we were about to send it to be 3d printed but we its much easier to cut and insert "keys" in the model at this time.


    Since the hat had a massive over hang. Splitting the hat from the body made both printing and casting much easier.
    I made this bust before the 4r8 release. So I had to use the add/sub dynamesh features . The new Booleans feature would have really helped with this process now.


    Before We sent the model off to the Final printers I wanted to test print it to check the scale was right.
    I have a flash forge dreamer FDM printer at home and its perfect for this type of prototyping.
    As you can see the quality is really nasty but this model was purely about the scale.
    If you are lucky enough to have or know someone with a FDM printer I recommend this step, it can save you a lot of money as resin printing is really expensive.


    This is the print we got back for the printers, the photos are blurry sorry.
    I don't have access tot he print at this time. The quality was insane . It was printed on a solus3d.




    My job was done and lain took over. He took the print made a 2 part mold and pressure cast in resin.
    Here are some really early failed models.

    It did not take long for him to iron out the creases, here is a line up of the all the models.
    Then lain went mad and casts tons haha



    Last but not least here are some photos of the final product.


    It still amazes me the amount of detail we managed to get in the final product.
    We still have a few left if anyone is interested you can buy them here http://www.samrowan.com/fairwell-and-adieu.html


    All the best Sam
