Oracle update

Work In Progress / 05 July 2023

My oracle is taking a slightly different direction. I'm now playing with a design of an organig organ, which fits better to the whole story.

Retro scifi bounty hunter bust 3d print preperations

Work In Progress / 11 April 2023
Hey hey,
currently I'm working on the printable bust of my alien gunslinger.
I cutted the model into 10 pieces to reduce the force/per piece during the printing and to bring the amount of backfacing issues to a minimum.

Furthermore I hollowed the biggest parts not just to safe resin, but also to avoid to strong pulling forces during the print.

After 6,5 hours I had all my pieces and started cleaning and assembling the model to check for minor issues before I put the model as .stl into my shop.

I already noticed a few areas with a very tight locking, which means I had to go back to Zbrush and tweak my boolean opperations.
The next testprint is already in progress :)

Elder bust

Work In Progress / 25 March 2023

Hey hey,
I'm working on a new printable bust. My inspiration was an elderly character with ... of course more alien anatomy but humanoid features.

Here are a few WIP shots of the current process. I will add a few more folds around the stitches and maybe a few more wrinkles on her face. Furthermore a small pose, could be the extra detail I need for her.

Initial sculpt with way to strong features but that's OK because then I can easily reduce and tweak the values.

I tried first a version with a bigger horn shape on the forhead but that was to much detail and shifted the focus away from the face.

So I tried different versions for the horns ...

And finally I found the right balance :D

Retro scifi bounty hunter bust / Weapon detailing

Work In Progress / 15 February 2023

Hey hey,

I detailed the weapon for the bust.
Based on the "Blockout", I made a few more splits and I adjusted the proportions on the handle to fit better into the alien hand (also it's better for the printing process, so everything fits together smoothly)

More details ... as you can see I closed the hole for the trigger because those areas would cause printing issues

and here is a test rendering in Keyshot

Retro scifi bounty hunter bust

Work In Progress / 12 February 2023

Im working on a retro scifi alien bust. The idea is a bounty hunter with a classic xray gun :D
The overall height will be 8cm (top eyes to belt)

First rendering, finding all the main shapes

I decided to go with wider shoulder pads to make the overall triangle design more pronounced.

More details and I opened the mouth to make the face more visible.

I started to play with posing ideas


Work In Progress / 21 November 2022

I'm working on a cosmonaut design, the screenshot isa rough phase to flesh out the suit and proportions.

Plague Marine Bust /04

Work In Progress / 08 October 2022

I made a few changes on the overall design. Sharper corners for the armor plates, more nasty parts (I made a imperial guard head for his backpack), different shapes for the area around the belly. I still have to work on a few areas and details, but my latest test rendering looks promising.

Oh and this image is just for fun :D

Plague Marine Bust /03

Work In Progress / 16 September 2022

Update ...
I refinded the helmet and upper arm armour. Also I resculpted a few areas, where I have to cut for the print.If somebody find the small demons let me know :D

Plague Marine Bust /02

Work In Progress / 14 September 2022

Plague marine update
I refined a lot of shapes and learned interesting stuff about space marine lore :D

I think I'm almost done with the secondary shapes (one big part is still the helmet) But my render tests are promissing. I have to keep in mind that I would cut the model in a few pieces for printing, so everything should be as tight as possible.

Work In Progress / 09 September 2022

I'm working on something nasty :D
Still blocking out the volumes of the plague marine bust, but I love it already!

Sculpt Phase 01 and a little bit rendering
