Skyrima Custom Action Figure

Custom #:59547  
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:DC Direct
Date Added:March 23, 2014
Base Figure:Custom 3D models
Height:6.50 inches
Another 3D printed action figure inspired by Skyrim (after many gear mods)...

This one took a bit longer and an extra test print to have everything working properly, but most things worked as intended right away which was nice considering all the moving parts.

All the gear on her back can be removed or interchanged. She can hold/carry most of the weapons I've printed through shapeways so far. 2 handed weapons can be clipped on her back and most 1 handed swords fit into her rolled up sleeping back on her back or on her leg where the knife is.
The armor plate on her leg swings freely up and down and doesn't hinder articulation and the straps for her shoulder armor are flexible enough to let her arm push it up too.

I tried to do more things with washes and dry brushing some of which kinda worked, and some not so, live and learn.

On the downside, shapeways forgot to polish this one so her surface finish is a bit rougher. Kinda works for the leather and fur parts but not so well for her skin. They're printing me a new one for free but alas, I'm done!

She was fun so I'll probably be doing a few more fantasy figures next...

Beautiful figure. Excellent craftsmanship. I'm a bit curious. What 3D printing app do you use? Or is it one of those "If I told you I'd have to kill you," type of things?
Strangefate - Thursday, March 27, 2014
Thanks Whiteaker15. Hmm the modeling/creating of the figures can be done in any regular 3D modeling app (Max, maya etc). Personally I use 'modo' from Luxology.
Beyond that you don't need any specific 3D printing app ...unless you print at home in which case your 3D printer would come with an app that lets you position, rotate and scale the parts for printing, but since they're printed online through shapeways, I just have to upload them.

Gorgeous! Seems to fit perfectly in the MOTUC universe.
Strangefate - Monday, March 24, 2014
thanks Necro!
I did sculpt her fur in a MOTUC-esque style in the hopes it would blend in better with them

nice man! I've been trying this 3D printing lately but it seems too expensive for now so Im mixing sculpt media with parts in 3D.
One day I want to do a full 3D but don't know how to make the joints work. are joints printed in a different material?
Strangefate - Sunday, March 23, 2014
Thanks mast3rSword!
It's all printed in the same material as to not require any glue or anything beyond plugging body parts and ball joints together.

She looks stunning and those accessories are amazing. What is it made of?
Strangefate - Sunday, March 23, 2014
Thanks migzflickz. It's all made of... some plastic involving nylon, from there, it gets magical...

this looks really really good. I've considering trying a 3D printer. Now how see the amazing potential.
Strangefate - Sunday, March 23, 2014
Thanks redz. Make sure to understand your printer if you're considering getting one. Some of the printing technologies don't really work well for small or detailed things.

Beautiful! This is beyond fantastic! So the weapons are 3D prints too like those swords? If so nicely done!
Strangefate - Sunday, March 23, 2014
Thanks Banner and yes everything on the photos is 3D printed, all weapons and gear... and if I may casually point it out, it's all available on my shapeways shop for the price of printing + a few cents

Have you recorded the creation process in some way? As I haven't seen any 3d printing in person yet , got quite curious...and cheers, excellent result!
Strangefate - Sunday, March 23, 2014
Thanks Rok... and no, never recorded anything. I have some images on how to assemble them and such on the shapeways shop but that's all. The process on my end isn't that different from making regular 3D models (with some small twists)... and I only know about the printing process itself as much as I had to read up to understand the limitations.
I've ordered a 3D printer that should arrive in a month or 2 so I'll soon enough learn to make new confused facial expressions, but even then the technology of my printer will be very different from what shapeways uses.

That's your best female yet!

Out of curiosity are you able to like actually sculpt ? Or is the 3D the only way to go for ya? I know some people excel with various styles like artist painters with a brush or photo shoppers with a mousepad. Just was wondering if the two styles go hand in hand or is your way like a detour .
Strangefate - Sunday, March 23, 2014
Never actually sculpted Cherry Bomb. I know enough artists that have transitioned both ways to know the skills carry over, but personally I never felt the need to try it out... I don't think I'd enjoy it without an UNDO function

this is quite impressive good stuff

Thanks Christina
