They arrived quite a while ago, but I hadn't taken pictures yet...

Dorus can be found here: http://shpws.me/oLlX
Manus is here: http://shpws.me/oGNO

They are the best of friends! So they should really go as a pair Smile

I'm really happy with the models... but they both already have been damaged a bit... I hope the full colour sandstone gets a more durable finish sometime!!

Ah, I didn't know Dorus has a friend! I guess I'll have to get Manus printed as well, as Dorus is now always alone on my desk Smile

Get yourself some Glaze Coat. 2 part resin. experiment on some sample pieces first to work on getting the consistency right.

Thanks guys,

Bart: yeah I made him a while ago already... I actually have an idea to make it a threesome, but having a hard time coming up with the right name... especially since it'd be best if it were an old dutch name ending with us Wink G**us the Griffin? I'm not sure yet!

Youknowwho4eva: For me to do finishing myself isn't the best idea really... I was the guy in art school who consistently had fingerprints on all his works! So maybe that's better left to shapeways to figure out... full colour has been here for a while... I'd expect there to be multiple good options by now Wink

Wahtah: Awesome! I may have to do that one... though... perhaps a bit difficult with the style... an octopus/giant squid doesn't necessarily have the characteristic feet Wink

Just out of curiosity, what sort of wear and tear did they get to incur damage?

You know... things fall sometimes... not from great heights... but.. with this material even a tiny drop results in damage. And handling them is dangerous... I show them to people, and they all want to touch... If you show it to 10 people you're sure to have damage (someone will scratch it with a nail)
