To get a perfectly smooth surface on my 3-d prints i build up 3-4 layers of primer, between each coat i let the pieces dry 2 days then sand. Once i get the surface to my liking I create a 2 part mold off my 3-d print and cast my finals in resin, its time consuming but in the end i have a nice perfectly smooth cast ready to be painted
For those that missed it, the Steve store is restocked “for now” Steve and Vince kits as well as all faces plates for Steve and Vince are still available!
For those who have no idea who Mira is you can see more work on her below
How do you attatch the extra faces to the head. I would LOVE to make a doll with interchangable expressions....but I'm not entirely sure how to go about it.
Love your drawing style btw
Thank you very much!! I've tried doing a couple of figures, canabalizing poseable action figure parts. But nothing like the smooth professional look I see from your work.
I gave you a watch!, very interested in seeing more of your work
Wow! Thank you so much! I hope you like what you see.
Does the 3D printing technology help you to streamline your creative and production processes? I guess I don't really know much about how you input the required data so that the computer & printer can print it. Do you sculpt a design, 3D scan it, then refine it on the computer before printing, or do you design it right on the computer and then print it out?
3D printing helps soooo much, im actually trying to save up for a formlabs printer, having my own printer on site would make my work go about 3x times faster.
Sometimes I sculpt a rough likeness in clay then photo it from the front, top and sides, create a low poly model based on my photos, import my low poly in z-brush to refine and finish.
Now i mostly model directly in 3D, the more i use the software the more comfortable I'm becoming digitally sculpting free-form
Do you have any idea when you'll be releasing her? Also, what size would she be compared to other MSD-sized girl dolls? I'm just asking so I know where to look for clothing.
