Ahoi

Creative burst continues. I found some piece of driftwood to put my whales on and I made some progress with the Narwhale. The human swimmer is now physically present, not only photoshopped, thanks to shapeways.

Still missing are one representative beaked whale and of course the grand Cacholot, the Spermwhale. I can´t find detailed references for those.

 

Cheers

Narwhale complete.

Although  I never thought I would get thaf far, I began building the last two of my collection of Whales:

A small individual of Berardius bairdi and a medium Spermwhale.

I plan to make the latter in mid dive, pondering the exact pose:

Nice work, you should make a minimuseum out of this!

Thanks Macrophyseter.

Minimuseum, yes. Guests at my place get shown the collection. I also pondered lending my whales to the zoological museum of my city if they want them (it´s a big one)

Didn´t you write something about your 3d modelling?

Where you talking about digital or "material" modelling?

My method for realising 3d models after drawings works especially well with whales, because their vertebrae are quite simple compared with more gravity-challenged lifeforms, and their spinal and lateral processes are conveniently arranged at a right angle.You can see the steps on the first page of this thread.

For all but the Humpback- and Spermwhale I had the skulls 3d-printed, the postcranial skeletons are handmade. The human was taught to swim in Blender.

Here comes the next step of my Cachalot, after glueing the lateral and dorsal views of the spine together with some wire, I bent it into a more dynamical pose and started skulpting the centra of the vertebrae.

Best Regards
