Sawyer Live in 3D! by TimothyB Sawyer Live in 3D! by TimothyB
3D print now available:  shpws.me/qqWJ
I'll have a photo of the print Friday night. 

Sawyer from Cats Don't Dance during the Little Ark Angel scene. Haven't watched the movie yet? Check it out! It's full of lively expressive animation, great songs, and witty/funny writing.  This scene can be found at 13.5 minutes in this youtube video, and continued into part 2 where you see the other side of Darla Dimple: www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5OT1l…

The pose, clothing, and background are  based off the above mentioned scene. 

This started as my first ever 3D model back in 2007 that was left unfinished for years. Last week I decided to revisit it. There was a good chunk done. The body (no hands, feet or tail), plus the head/hair ( no eyes) were already modeled and decent. That was done in Hexagon, before I had ZBrush. Though, I finished it in Modo that I recently purchased. In Modo, I reshaped things a bit, updated topology, modeled clothing, accessories, background. I used basic skeleton rigging and twist/bend/etc. deformers to pose the model. ZBrush was only used for the tail and the little things sticking out of the shirt's knot. Rendered in Modo, plus some post processing within in Modo (contrast and bloom) and just a touch of saturation done in Photoshop.

Any MLP fans? Lauren Faust was an animator for Sawyer back in the day. I just discovered a video, posted not too long ago, of a camera tour with the CDD animation crew back in 1994. I believe that's Lauren at 1:45, and bit more 30 seconds or so later. It's 30 minutes, so I haven't checked the whole thing yet. www.youtube.com/watch?feature=…!

Also, on the CDD fan site by Shelley Pleger, there's interview with Faust: www.cdd4ever.com/CATCHAT/CatCh…

Oh, I hope to turn this into a 3D Print in the next day or so.

This 3D picture you've done of Sawyer in her pink sailor uniform looks very nice, and I absolutely loved watching "Cats Don't Dance" when I was a kid as well. :D

Fantastic work ! Very nice pose and render. I was thinking of getting a 3d printer in a couple weeks and I was wondering if it would be ok to possibly get the file to print it on my machine ? I doubt I would get the quality like shape ways but it should be pretty close. This would be super cool to try and print on my own then paint.

I understand though if you don't want to give me the file though buy I thought I should at least ask :)

Keep being awesome

One of my mates gave me the 3D printed statue (he got it at Furthur ConFusion). I love it! It's in my special display case now, for everyone to admire during our big monthly house party.

Oh hey, I remember that! I thought that was a really good movie when I was younger. I wonder, if I watched it now would it be good because of nostalgia or because it's just naturally good.
