Fake Plastic Men…

I missed out on a blog post in May,  I took a holiday to Italy and have been busy with other stuff. I did get to some more 3D printing, some of it more successful than other attempts. First up was a revised version of my Joker fan art, this time a more substantial piece with further hair detailing and a proper torso modelled, his trademark purple suit from Batman: The Animated Series. Unfortunately due to some bad booleans, the printer left out his collar, bowtie and lapels, leaving a rather gruesome looking scar across his neck, like the memento of some failed assassination attempt at Arkham Asylum.


I decided I’d try for something a little more elaborate than the suit and started researching straightjackets, one of which I created in Marvelous Designer over a rough pose of the stock male body model from Mudbox. I worked over it in ZBrush to create some deeper folds and seams and after some remeshing and decimation it was ready to hit the Ultimaker, here is the result…

I’ve never been much good at painting, but I’ve acquired a compressor and airbrush set, all I need now is some free time to try and paint up the print.
