Failed attempt to make a bigger sculpture. On the backside something went wrong unfortunately. But a lot of lessons learned.
Made in Daz3D, exported to Fusion360 via Blender.
I was inspired by a newspaper artikel telling that the German government had purposefully and actively tried to make the population more scared of Covid in order to make them more compliant. I have no doubt other governments have done the same. I’m afraid that when covid is over we’re left with a whole lot of people who will remain afraid. Afraid of germs, social closeness or other people in general. I hope I’m wrong.
Making this model is not easy. The body took some time in Blender but was ok once on the cnc machine. The wheels were easy in Fusion 360 but really hard once on the cnc machine. Alignment was difficult. I think I have about 20 failed attempts. Still have to make the steering wheel.
I saw this painting from Willem Koekkoek at Tefaf in Maastricht. I did not have the budget to buy it, but I really liked it. According Wikipedia Willem Koekkoek was known for his idealized paintings of Holland.
This is a work in progress. I’m planning to finish this image somewhat different. No Star Wars for one. But the Star Wars bug got me. So I added the stormtrooper (thx JJ Palomo) and the rebel logo and called it finished.
The original plan is inspired by ArtStation. I really love the 2d concept art images on this site. I wanted to make concept art too but with 3d , because I can’t draw or paint well. So my initial drive was to make a fast build, sculpted and textured image. I failed. Most meshes are build extremely fast, but then I got caught up in details.
I’m learning Blender and by taking on a whole project is often times the best way; lather, rinse, repeat. I had to go back to 3ds Max a few times, but found it difficult to find my way around. Some other external programs were used. Blender is getting there but there are a few specialized programs, better suited for some stuff, out there. There are so many tutorials on how to do Blender that I can’t even start to thank all the makers, but thank you all.
