    The Warsnail - 3D printed figure

    This is one of my oldest characters but still one I like the most. The original 3D model was done in Softimage. However all the remodeling to turn it into an action figure was done in Modo. I made some slight design changes along the way. Mostly I uncluttered the armor on the house.
    Obviously the articulation is limited due to the design. But you still get some nice poses out of the guy. I even went outside for the pictures since he fits so nicely into the environment.
    All the weapons can be removed from the back and posed in his hands. Scale 3 3/4 inch. Printed on a Form 2 with durable resin. Painted by me.

    You have shown great skill and dedication, the figure looks amazing!

    I don't know much about digital sculpting and even less about 3D printing.

    But I think to get it to this level of quality, print it, paint it, and have it presentable enough for taking photos, would have taken you days, if not weeks.

    I say this because I think it generally takes much longer to create something, than it is to "enjoy / consume" it.

    Thank you. A figure like this takes some time but it is still faster then sculpting it from scratch in a traditional way. At least for me. :-)
