Here’s the first part of mech building series which looks at building the piece. The next part will cover painting.
This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, so I started collecting parts to use in this some time ago. I’m going to be putting together a full video on building this so I won’t go into it in too much detail. The sculpture is largely made from resin casts of things like lighters, yoghurt pots and deodorant bottles.
Here’s a video of a 1950s-esque robot that I made recently. This is actually a cast of my bioshock mask which went abit wrong, but had a really nice texture to it that looks a little like rusted and pitted metal. So I used it to create this sculpture.
