In this Instructable I will give a detailed overview of how I created a jewelry box in 3DS Max and Zbrush before having it printed by Shapeways
. I designed the jewelry box with the intention of proposing to my girlfriend with the ring inside. The box was designed in the Art Nouveau style with flourishes reminiscent of the Elven scenery of Middle Earth.
I wanted this to be very personal, so her face was sculpted onto the lid with the help of a friend from a series of candid profile images.
