We have seen the popularity of the 3D Printed Success Kid meme as it has made it’s angry way across the internets but did you ever wonder how it was actually 3D modeled?  

Did he search the world for the child and scan it with Autdoesk’s 123D Catch? No.

Did he use Facebook’s creepy face recognition software to find multiple views of the child to be stitched together to create a 3D model? No

Did he use Sculptris (FREE), zbrush and a Wacom tablet to 3D model this from scratch? YES…
