anatomically correct (more or less) whale, developed from the original 3dprinted whale I designed ages ago...
The spine, fins and jaw in the strong & flexible nylon versions flex like a spring, while the metal verions are ductile enough to be bend into different poses.
ideas I wanted to explore when i started this design:
- base it on an actual whale species – humpback
- articulated movement – jaw, 2 side fins, body & tail fin
- central spine for realistic body movements
- realistic vs abstract
- skin vs skeleton
