Maybe I should have started my blog with this one, but since it was described in a Brog at TBDX a long time ago I've skip it. Then as the whole idea here is to display all my project I was thinking it can be interesting to show it also as it was my first experience with 3D printers and the opening of interesting perspective and ideas.
For that project I had a huge help on the modeling, when I first had the idea of doing something like that I was not sure to be able to model it myself properly as I had not model anything for a long long time. Since then I've put my modeling skills up to date and I take a lot of pleasure to do it.
The idea was to test the 3D print process with something interesting. And as you can see it turned out great. A bit expensive at the end so a bit frustrating as you have to choose witch project will go until this stage.
But I've learn a lot with it and as I said before, a lot of new perspective for me because of this project.
You can read the original post here with the full story :http://toyboxdx.com/brog/?p=3020
And here's some picts side by side with an original. As you can see, and as usual with me now, this is not 100% accurate, the original is more rounded on the hips, the jaws are going to much to the front on mine. But the overall feeling is pretty cool and I can say that each time I'm looking at it, well I just love him like that.
As you can see also, I've re-use a lot of the modeling to do the Black Ox design, which was also the idea then, so that it looks like a real part of the line. But I really want to try to make a hero character much more like original Hero Machinders but I need more freetime for that :))
