Re: Alex's Shinkis & Customs New Photos 4/20/14

That was funny :thumbsup: LOL I love the look of shame in the picture that they got caught. Thanks! :schmetterling: I'm still amazed at how much life and emotion these toys can express even with my meager posing abilities. Also, I hope people have been reading my remarks in the last panel as playfu...

Re: Alex's Shinkis & Customs

Thank you for the thread link! That's going to be really helpful in the future! Yeah, I imagine getting CAD is an investment. Fortunately my husband and I have been talking about modeling for a while. It's always been a goal of his to begin 3D modeling so he can actually start creating his own toys...

Re: Alex's Shinkis & Customs

Those revolvers look great! It's really impressive that these days you can create a 3D model, send it to a company, and they can literally print out your model. I love technology these days! I'm curious though, how hard it is to work in CAD? I've never done any sort of 3D modeling before, however I...

Re: Shinki Creation info wanted

i've never actually done molds before, but i would guess that if you use an effective release compound then you should be alright, the release should keep the mold from sticking to the paint.

Re: Maybe it's just me

the pic of your zel makes the difference obvious, but i think that is mostly just the lighting exaggerating the difference. although i can see a very slight difference in the flesh shinki pic you posted, i would chalk the difference up to the material used and the finish applied to it. although i do...

Re: Halconfenix Misc Artworks

so then they must calculate based on bounding box as well, since as a hollow model it shouldn't be very much plastic. I would suggest breaking it into smaller pieces and trying to keep things as small as possible, you could try just cutting off the seat back & armrests and doing it in two separate p...
