UPDATE 2014: Recently signed a contract for a project that's long term. So commissions will be very limited and can't be rushed. If your are interested in something, give me as much details as possible and l'll see if I can squeeze it in my schedule.
Opening up for commissions! My focus is 3D modeling for 3D printing full figures in color with a base and props. A lot of people have been interested, so I want to offer something than nothing at all. Recently I just finished my first commission and now feel comfortable taking more. Details on the full 3D figure print commission are below:3D Figure Print Commissions:Commissions will be chosen based off what I'm comfortable with, which is often a toony style that translates to 3D better, but I'm up for challenges. Limitations in 3D printing also have to be considered for designs, especially the full-color material. A lot of limitations can be overcome with careful planning of the pose and fragile parts to get the most out of a design.Please Note: No adult commissions. 3D printing services usually don't allow anything explicit. What's included? The commission includes a single character in a pose with a base (display and stability), plus basic props that goes with the scene or tell more about the character. It will be printed as large as possible while keeping within the cost specified in the pricing details.What I would need:First, show me your character and style you wish to be translated into to 3D. I'll need plenty of reference, preferably a turn-around model-sheet so I don't miss any details.You probably don't want your character just standing there. Please provide a description of the pose or example images. Choose a pose or action that says something about your character. I'll review your request to see if it can be printed or refined to work. If you are not sure how to approach this for a sculpture, share your ideas and I'll be glad to help brainstorm. Please ask for more details if you wish to have a commercial or copyrighted character done.Process:Most my modeling occurs in ZBrush. A traditional polygon modeler is also used to refine models with better topology and building props. As I work, I'll keep you updated with every stage. Usually beginning with rough low polygon models for proportions and shape, then slowly building up more detail with feedback. The final model will be carefully prepared for 3D printing in full color. (Please ask about other materials that offer more detail and are stronger, but lack color.) 3D prepping starts with hollowing out the model to reduce material used for cost and weight that reduce stress on weak points. Price:For a single character with basic props and base, I'm asking $500. This includes the $100 cost to print and ship the model. I will open 2 slots at a time. Average time to complete is 2 months, plus 2 weeks to print and ship. 3D modeling can be very time consuming and bring up new challenges with every project. I hope to explore other services in the future that are quicker to produce and more affordable, such as a 3D badge I've done. Don't be afraid to ask anything.
I'll keep posted on if the 2 slots fill up and or wait list. I may have two people interested at the moment.
