|BACK TO PORTFOLIO|
|One of the most interesting projects I've ever worked on.
“Sculpture of Saint John Paul II the Great”
|The sculpture was made by private order.
In the images, I present a few 3D renderings of the sculpture (those images that are on top), and I have also taken several screenshots in the metal shader/material, from my workspace, which show the detail of this great sculpture much better (you can see those images below)
|Technically, the sculpture was intended to create a mold for multiple castings. That is why some parts of the sculpture are deliberately smoothed or joined, in order to make the casting process easier.
I also have the unique opportunity to show you a 25 inches tall (almost 650 mm) 3D printed statue, that I made as a base model to make the mold for casting.
It's really amazing to create things like this …to see how they come from the digital dimension into reality…
|* By the way, in this project you can see the great advantages of digital sculpting, as a 3D model can be printed/made in a fairly wide range of sizes
…unlike a real sculpture made of clay or wax, which usually cannot be scaled.
