What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

 OctoKing Studios is proud to present the next figure in our lineup: 

After the success of Octoking’s first products, Grump Bear and Buff Bunny, we are ready to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth with this series of ice cream themed skulls designed by WyattOfTheAfro.

There are 3 variations of the Skoops, each titled appropriately.   

  • The Single Skoop sits at 5in tall, and is 1 skull in a vanilla white.  
  • The double Skoop is 7in tall with a strawberry pink skull sitting atop the vanilla white.  
  • And the Triple Skoop is a whopping 10in tall from cone to stem, and consists of vanilla white, strawberry pink and a chocolate brown skull, in order bottom to top, topped with a cherry.  

 

All figures are hand molded, cast in resin, and painted in house by WyattOfTheAfro. The files have already been sculpted in Zbrush and the prototypes have been printed out. All that’s left is the part where you come in. Help us raise the money to bring our sugary sweet figures to the world.

Production of these figures are taken care of in house by the owners and artists of OctoKing Studios, so what is there to gain from launching this Kickstarter? The money raised by this campaign will provide a better infrastructure for our production pipeline. It will allow us to bring higher detail and accuracy into each figure. Sugar Skulls are designed to be that first step to show case the capability of this upgraded pipeline. 

The funds from this kickstarter will be distributed as seen below. Kickstarter takes about 10% straight off the top. The majority will go towards improved 3D printing machinery, and cast and mold material. The rest of the funds will go into products to improve production, like adding extra pressure pots to allow for more batches to be made at once, and supplies like paper towels, stir sticks, disposable cups, paint brushes, and other small expenses that add up.

 

 

 

 1. Broken Jaw Jaw Breaker Skull - $3500  

  • Let's reach this goal to add a bonus small figure with every figure reward tier.   
  • The prototypes of all 3 figures (Single, Double and Triple Skoop) have been printed and sized. 
  • Paint is currently being tested and chosen. 

Once the Kickstarter is successful and machines have been purchased and set up:

  • The final production model will be printed and post processed.
  • Figures will be molded and cast. 
  • Paint will be applied. 
  • Figures will arrive to you.

Wyatt Of The Afro is a 3D artist and owner of OctoKing Studios. He’s responsible for the creation of Grump Bear and is the sculptor of Buff Bunny, a collaboration between himself and designer Maya Lee.

Risks and challenges

The money raised will be used to buy equipment. When buying hardware there are chances of delays or defective products, which are generally taken care of in a timely manner. These rare but possible delays have been taken into consideration. All production is taken care of in house and will begin as soon as equipment is up and running.
