Zelda Legendary Scale Statue
Limited to 4 in total, each numbered & signed.
Medium: PLA, clay
Aprox.: 1,6 kg (3.6 punds)
Aprox.: 79 cm (31 inches)
All four statues have individual variations, number 1/4 was a concept statue slightly larger and with a different base. The other three also has minor variations, in practice making them unique.
First the model was 3D printed in several parts, then joined & sculpted with clay to even out print imperfections and also give stability to the model. The printers I used at the time weren't great,
and a lot of manual labour was involved.
Assembled with clay to cover seams and adding stability.
Notice the white parts of the hair; the top of the head is one pice, and it also cuts off just underneath the chest.
Finished statue number 1 of 4. This is a concept version slightly larger than the others with a different logo.
Prints lines are still visible. I realized the project wasn't that interesting to start with, in combination with poor 3D printing, the statues sold very cheap (below manufacturing costs).
Soft fabric base with signature.
