When looms a medieval zombie apocalypse (which, frankly, happens every time the local necromancer goes for a stroll) it’s not the lords and ladies, safely ensconced behind thick citadel walls and rows of nervous archers who get chomped; if serf’s up for Jack and Jill mudgrubber they’re crudités for Zed anon. With a model this […]
MTG Zombie Token Designed by Zheng3 When looms a medieval zombie apocalypse (which, frankly, happens every time the local necromancer goes for a stroll) it’s not the lords and ladies, safely ensconced behind thick citadel walls and rows of nervous archers who get chomped; if serf’s up for Jack and Jill mudgrubber they’re crudités for […]
MTG Snake Token Designed by Zheng3 Snake tokens in Magic: The Gathering are generated by many cards, including but not limited to ye olde Snake Pit, Endless Swarm, and of course many of the Orochi cards. Much MTG Snake card art eschews long and slithery reptiles in favor of four-armed humanoid ophidians, but for this […]
This pose struck me while I was orbiting my camera. This guy will be ready in a couple of days. #staytuned. You can watch his development in the Scrying Pool, over to the right. If you catch me working (usually early mornings EST) you can watch the screencaps accumulate in quasi-realtime.
I’ve been getting a lot of referrals lately from Joe’s MakerBot and Fabbaloo with regard to my Magic: The Gathering Beast Token. Thanks, guys! There’s some healthy skepticism out there suggesting that the either the Beast requires support or won’t print at all on an FDM printer. I’ve been wanting to do some timelapse photography […]
Got a start on the MTG Drake Token’s pectoral girdle today. It’s got me thinking about adding detail to the muscle mass so that when the model’s finally posed (I’m predicting two weeks from now or so) we’ll be able to see the striations in the pecs. It’s important not to get too caught up […]
I started roughing out the drake’s body this morning. This is a 3D sketch; the idea here is not to get caught up in the geometry, just figure out the defining masses of the object. The Drake’s going to be something of a cross between a pterodactyl and a snake. I’ve already got a decent […]
My series on the design of my Magic: The Gathering Beast Token was well-received, so I’m going to do it again with this Drake token. People seem to enjoy watching the growth of a model from idea to 3D-printed object. If you’re awake at the right time, you can follow the 3d modelling process in […]
