    Clement Garcia milled this torso for me on a CNC milling machine. The quality is incredible and I really appreciate his enthusiasm for this. It started out as my Frazetta "Catgirl" sculpt.
    The CNC has some limitations due to heavy undercuts so I just removed the limbs and sent him the STL. I need to put it on a more presentable base, but like I said, I'm really happy with this result. Thanks Clement!!

    To answer a few questions about my work, I just sculpt all the time. I try not to take short cuts. I force myself to constantly study anatomy and portrait reference. But I also believe there is a fine line to walk between being a slave to reference and expression. This is why I believe Rodin is the most admirable of sculptors. He struck the perfect balance between expression and accuracy. I'm constantly looking at shapes, volumes, silhouettes and complimentary forms. I think sculpting traditionally for a long time before I switched to ZBrush helped me see these things. Making a sculpture work from multiple angles takes more than just knowledge of anatomy. It takes years of study to begin to grasp the abstract idea of composition and make something work 'in the round'. I spend as much time studying form language as I do studying anatomy. But if you're trying to get started and lay the ground work for this type of thing I strongly recommend combining your study of anatomy with what you see in your reference. Therefore you can sculpt with understanding and this gives you the confidence to express ideas. It still comes down to working hard though.



    Anyway, I finally got around to doing some renders of my Firestar sculpt...

    So I just picked up a Form2 printer. I'm totally amazed at the quality of this. Even at the lowest resolution settings, it holds up well against printers that cost 10 times as much. I can't wait to push this thing to the max. I'm so pumped! haha

    Welcome to the Form 2 club! Isn't it amazing?! I already pre ordered the washing station and the curing chamber that went up on their website this week. Come on September. Beautiful bust btw. Did you print that in the black material?

    The new grey is awesome. It really shows the detail. I highly recommend that you buy a uv flashlight. It helps a lot for post curing and welding parts together. I don't use any glue at all now. I put some resin in a small glue bottle with a metal tip, run a bead of resin in the joints, then hit it with the uv flashlight. Just like welding metal. And it sands/carves really well. I have been putting a little chamfer on the joint edges to give the raw resin a nice channel to sit in.
