This job was for a customer who spend some time searching on the web for similar models to print, but couldn’t find one according to his spectations. So asked me to build the pokemon Squirtle figure from scratch.
As I never paid attention to this franchise on games, cartoon, whatever format it came, I have to mainly search for several references. Once then I start the modeling, based on only one perspective reference from the cartoon series.
as always do,first determine the main bodies or macro-forms and then, solve each detail and transitions between them.
The details on the shell and face were oversised to improve de printing definition at small scale. As the final model was intended as keychain, there is no room for fine or tiny details.
once happy with renders, some printing test
The customer give me the permision to do whatever i want with the model. So I uploaded it to Thingiverse and you can finding it here:
In a not so distant future I will make an articulated version and sell the Cad file.
