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.

Scratchbuilding a Mech from Clear Plastic Baubles Part 2

Here’s the second part of my latest mech build! This time around I’ve gone a little 1950s-esque with the colour scheme.

The face is inspired by some of Simon Stalenhag’s work. He’s a fantastic artist if you’ve not heard of him. Here’s an example of his stuff.  I talk a little more about him and other mech artists in this video.

Here’re some more pics of the mech.

Scratchbuilding a Mech Part 2 – painting, base and lights

I’ve finished my mech build.  In this second and final part of the video series I paint the model, add some detail to the base and add some LED lights.  I’ve gotta say I really enjoyed doing this and am already thinking about ideas for another robot build.  I’ve also been watching diorama building videos on YouTube and want to include some of those techniques in the build.

Just to note that I’ve not made this video live on Youtube at the time of posting it here.  I’m just curious as to whether anyone actually looks at my blog 😉
I also took a load of pics so here’s a selection.
