Sculpting in VR #1 - Dragondog Pendant

 
 

I've been learning to use Medium, a virtual reality sculpting program developed for the Oculus Rift. I've documented my sculpting process for anyone interested in a handy time-lapse video.

The 3D print was ordered from Shapeways.com, in their "strong & flexible - polished" option. I was very impressed by the level of detail for the finished print, it's far better than I was anticipating. I had to tweak the design slightly to add volume to some of the thinner areas before printing. If you order a print and it has such an issue, they'll send you an email detailing the problem areas. 

The finish was created using a variety of ink washes followed by a liberal application of "Rub 'n Buff" metallic wax.

I'll be sharing more process videos in the future, so subscribe to the newsletter below if you want to stay in the loop!
