UPDATE Feb 2019: 64 remain of 100 editions available.
King Cuts Steven Spielberg
. This is a 5 inch / 12 cm version of my sculpture of Steven Spielberg as a cross between E.T. and Jaws. It's a limited edition available until one hundred (100) 3D-prints are made. 80% of the price covers the 3D-printed material itself, 20% I added for my labor on the 3D model.
In A Land Far Away... E.T.
. He's overtaken Jaws
. His gentle alien body grows a less innocent shark tale from his otherwise docile and plumpy body. Home: it's the ultimate hope of escape for Spielberg.
Working the 3D Model
. I 3D-scanned my original wood carving and re-sculpted this scan with 3D-modelling software. I enlarged, deleted or altered certain parts. Some things need to be thick to be 3D-printed. Enlarging also raises the cost of the material. I worked to lower the cost & meet the technical spec's. Including the 3D-scan, patching, re-sculpting details & color 'paint' job, it took me about 23 hours to develop this for 3D printing here.
The Wood Carving
. See pictures, videos and more about my original Steven Spielberg wood carving here on my website
. The original 18 inch sculpture took me weeks to carve from scratch in western red & yellow cedar wood, then paint in acrylic. It was part of my "King Cuts"
series of wood carvings depicting famous film directors mashed with their characters. I'm working on more 3D-print editions from this series.
