My latest woodcarving project. I still have to fine tune some things. For one.. the arms still floating above the water a little bit. Thereafter I’m going to experiment with oil or lacquer.
I am still tweaking my Hongkong image. The lighting is very difficult. There is an inside and an outside scene in one. But I like doing this tweaking stuff.. it’s educational 🙂
My dremel cnc can only cut away wood up till a height of 40mm. So my plan is to have drill sideways so I can cut away on the side of parts that cannot be turned. Here is a test holder.
This wood splits too easily (I’m such a Noob) so I’m going to make a new one, using mdf. Hopefully it will be stronger than.
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.
