Female Robot Build Complete

I’ve finally finished my android build.  This is one that got more and more complicated as I went on.  I originally started this at the beginning of December 2019 and finished mid april 2020, so a fair length of time for a project.

The original intention of this project was to attempt to sculpt a hard edged model.  Hard edged modelmaking usually involves creating shapes from sheet materials and found objects, which is an approach I’ve used in previous projects.  However I’ve been trying to work more and more sculpture into my robot projects and so for this one I’ve sculpted all of the robots body parts.  The rest is mostly machined brass with a few found objects incorporated here and there.

Here’s a gallery of pics

And here’s the final part of my video series.

Female Android Build

Here’s something I’ve been working on for the last few months.  I’ve been building a fair few mechs and scratchbuilt robots recently and I wanted to find a way of introducing more sculpture to that type of build.  So I decided to sculpt a hard edged model in the form of a female android.

It’s difficult to sculpt accurate curved geometric shapes, so I spent alot of time sanding the shapes smooth before moulding them,

 

Here’s the build series so far.
