Spectacular 3D Entry: Jim Heathcott

nice sketch soap- bring on the little bugger!!


#102

Hey Jim, I´ve always been surprised by the effect of making a good model look like a toy, but yours are actually miniatures!.
Very well done.


#103

Start of the big boy model. The purple people eater is included to show scale. This guy is big… in fact he may go a touch bigger. I haven’t really decided what details to include in this model yet. Or how the joints will fit together. Any ideas?


#104

Maybe made out of cloth and stitched together, or even made from patches of leather and rivets. Great character again Soapy, he will fit in well with the others. Also a transparent coloured plastic half filled with liquid would be cool. The great thing about your thread is that anything goes, its what makes me want to come back for more. Keep up the great work.


#105

hey soapy- you’re a genius at these crazy/ cute characters- they’re just fantastic!!
love the new guy, and the scale is hilarious!


#106

That purple people eater is too much, I smile every time I see it. I can only imagine what you have planned for him.


#107

Hmm I like the idea but I am pretty lazy. I will see what I can come up with.

This image should be pretty tame, maybe later Purps might become a perp. :wink:

Thanks Shakes, yeah he is so big and so slow his whole bottom third will be tagged up with graffitti.


#108

Oh btw, the new character modeling idea deadline for voting has passed. There was a tie for first place so I called in a panel of expert judges. They have determined Mr Spock the winner. So I will start modeling Spock shortly.

There is probably a lesson in all this…


#109

lookin forward to spocky soaps!!


#110

A logical choice Soapy, Lol


#111

I am building a sort of underwater/flying creature toy. Here are some tests for the fins. I wanted to see if I could build some nice flowing diaphanous fins. The curves are all about bones.


#112

Beautiful shapes for the fins! They look a bit like a whole new style - but I suppose it will come together fine. Looking forward too se the whole scen now :thumbsup:


#113

I have never really worried all that much about whether the toys match each other or not. If you look in any kids toy box you will find all different styles. But you are right this one is way out there. I was thinking of it as a sort of futuristic high tech toy. To suit that ‘future history’ thing they mentioned in the mission. If all goes well she will be flying in above the other toys. The upper half will all be all new age and shiny and the bottom portion antique. Antique as in anything from now backwards. That is the plan today, could change. :slight_smile:


#114

wow great render mate… i love the texturing… and have nothing to crit :thumbsup:


#115

all your toys are just perfect… :applause: funny and welldone…

#116

Aaaahhh honourable soapy pulls out another minor masterpiece to add to his collection:thumbsup:

Love the fins mate;) especially the teardrop details… Keep Rokkin:buttrock:


#117

#118

cheers mate!


#119

Mr Spock to the rescue!

As promised here is the mister Spock doll. He came together really fast.


#120

Spock rocks, unmistakeable, just needs a tri-quater, Lol. Great progress Soapy
