About this project

Hi! My name is David Richardson and I am a freelance digital sculptor and illustrator. What I am offering you is a chance to help me produce an affordable high quality reference product.
The Male Planar Statue.

It will be 9 inches tall with a small circle base cast in gray resin. It will be half planar and half rendered realistically with an attachable planar skull, planar head and realistic head.

Full body turnaround.

 I've already planned to produce it just for myself to use as reference when I want to sketch or paint and I realized that there isn't many like this out there. They are expensive to produce on small amounts and usually no one can afford it and I don't have the funds to produce big bulks of this statue to make it cheap for everyone.  

It will be perfect for students learning art, aspiring 2D and 3D artists, comic book artists, painters and sculptors.

It is my dream that one day this statue would be available in art stores, book stores and such. I remember trying to look for this kind of reference in stores but all I could find was that wooden mannequin.

So I am asking you to help me raise enough funds to produce this planar statue and so that all of us can have one.

Please share this with your art friends, students, classmates or work mates because this could be something they might need. Me and my family would really greatly appreciate your support!

Thank you!

I will have the master printed soon and any pictures I get I will share it with you too. So make sure to check in the updates sometimes! :)

Risks and challenges

Well the 3D model is pretty much done and will go straight to the professional printers (the ones that I already trust and worked with!). They will also handle the casting of the statue. I can only assume the only problem would be minor delays. However I have been working in the 3D printing and collectibles industry for awhile now and I can assure you will get your statue and bits as soon as its ready.
