HOW IT WAS MADE

 

First thing to do was scale this thing and produce a quick and dirty mock up so I could better understand the shapes and proportions.  I did this exact progression stage on the BLADERUNNER VOIGHT KAMPFF project.

  

 

 

 

 

The toy also helped reference some of the shapes.I took a little artistic liberty on the rear.

Once I understood some proportions it's time to get the helmet modeled.  To understand this process a bit more, have a look at my 3D PRINTING page.

 

After a few more rounds of revisions, we harvested a model that I approved for printing.

FINAL APPROVED 3D MESH:

 

From this stage I separated the shells and fired up the SLA printer.

After a little cleaning.  Still a few more days of cleaning edges and preparing for molding:
