Here we have a sculpture I did of president Obama wrapped in an ornate spiral lattice for the 3D Printed Ornament Design Challenge. I started out sculpting him with a dark suit and a red tie like we see him in the various Christmas related photos, yet it just didn't look right so I sculpted him a Santa suit. :D
I had planned on adding a lot detail to the ornamental lattice, but I spent way too much time sculpting his face and so I ran out of time. This was fully sculpted in Zbrush. I have two files available. One is WRL format for full color 3D printing and the other is STL for with no color data for those who like to hand paint their 3D prints.
If you print this, take photos and post it in the comments! I would really love to see your prints!
If you like my art show your appreciation by voting for me in the contest. Thanks! I really appreciate it! :D
Since I spent extra time designing this so that it can be 3D printed in full color I thought I might as well put it in one of my Shapeways shops. If you'd like my design for yourself and don't want to spend time printing it you can get one for your tree here.
Thanks for taking a look!
