Free Lesson: Using Simple Forms To Establish Volume

Doctor Who 'Matt Smith' - 3d Print Ready Model

This is a 3d print-ready Zbrush model of a character designed by my friend Grant Betts. Grant also made a SuperSculpy Clay model of the character, for reference for me. The character is in the style of Doctor Who's 'Matt Smith' with a caricature, vinyl toy approach to the design. The 3d model was done entirely within Zbrush and was made print-ready with NetFabb. It took approximately 10-12hrs from when the concept was made to the 3d Print-ready Model being finished, that includes the polypaint texture model among the images. 

This Model has been 3d printed with a EOS P100 – SLS printer (Selective Laser Sintering), at The model stands 9.5cm tall.
