Holly Monster Kid Hero Collab

Recommended Posts

Hi @Rainbow Sculptor! Love your work! I came into the hobby not long ago, and I'm curious how you as a sculptor will see a project like this to retail. If not part of Reaper's KS machine, what do you do with a digital (or 3D) sculpt? Do you pitch it to mini manufacturers? Are you a freelancer, or are you "on staff" with a company? I'd be curious to read anything you might share about what it's like being a miniature sculptor! (Sorry I'm an ENFP and just love to learn how things work, I'm not asking so I can try to become one too! )

Hey! So I work as a Freelancer. Im not on staff anywhere in particular but I do the majority of my work for Reaper. 

For a figure like this, if it were just for a personal client commission or a limited edition type of project I would finish sculpting it then send that file to Trenchworx or some other printing company to have a limited number of prints made or cast (likely in metal).

If it were something I was doing for fun I would shop it around to companies who might be interested in producing it.

Many sculptors have a Patreon or other personal revenue set up for their work, though I don't currently have one personally. 

 

I hope that helps answer your questions :)

She's so cute. Maybe Reaper can work her into a B5 power up! And thanks for sharing about how things work. It's all very interesting. Love your work!

I would buy both a physical model and a STL version of this in a heartbeat

 

@Rainbow Sculptor You so need to start a Patreon.

 

I'm so glad you guys like her! I have been wanting to start a Patreon this year however my current clients have kept my schedule full and I haven't had the time to develop a good backlog of figures and plan out a release schedule/tier rewards game plan. When/if there is news on that front I will let people know. You can follow me on Facebook @MoonlightMinis which is where I'll be posting any updates. 

Monsters status: sale pending, though I can't say to whom yet ;)

With the Kid Heroes on the Bones V kickstarter I know where my bet is going =)

Today we're getting started on Monster's little arctic fox friend! The beginning steps for animals are pretty much the same as people. I create a ZSphere rig with the proportions I want, pose it, then "Make PolyMesh3D" and start blocking in "anatomy" or in this case fur bulk with the clay builder brush.

From here I'll be using mostly the orb crack brush to define the facial features and start creating layers/clumps of fur.
