DNF Sculptures: Octabrain By DavoX  "WIP of my sculpture"

Hello Guys! What's up?

LAST POST WITH BOILING SCULPEY FOR THE DIFFERENT PARTS:
http://forums.duke4....post__p__176266

I finished my Octabrain sculpture in 2012 and now I'm about to start the paint work. Here are the finished pictures before painting. What follows is the old post where I showed the process to make it , cheers!

Someone in here told me it could be a good idea to make a Thread showing the making of my Octabrain Sculpture so I'm giving it a try.

The octabrain I'm going to make is based off (and probably almost the same) as the one being seen in recent DNF footage.

I want to point some things up first:

1) This is a fan made Sculpture and it's not related to Gearbox in any other way than it being an Octabrain from DNF.

2) It's not for sale. I'm sure I'll have some kind of contest or something to give away a painted copy for free.

3) If this suceeds I might make other members of the Duke Nukem universe :P


So let's get to it!

First I'm going to show you the armature I made for it. I Forgot to take pictures when I made the armature but I'll tell you it's made out of Wires of different kind of thickness which I then covered with a Wire sheet and then with Epoxy.

This is the unfinished body with some wire still visible:

And then fully covered with epoxy, ready to add the clay!

Posted Image

This is all to bulk up the body and to use less Clay ( Which is Super Sculpey by the way, kinda expensive).

Basic shape:

Started making the brain:

Posted Image

I'm adding the "things" that hold the head onto the brain, I also made the belly which I'll show later:

Posted Image

Improved a bit the "tentacles" that hold the brain and then added small "balls of steel" to make the eyes:

Posted Image

Posted Image

Worked a bit on the face and added details. Going to make the spine tomorrow:

Posted Image


Added the spiky spine and added more detail to the head as well. Next step: Tentacles!

Posted Image


I'll continue to post more shoots as I make more progress with it. Any other questions I'll be happy to answer :P

I'm probably going to update the first post every time new stuff comes in so make sure to check it when I bump the thread.


I'm going to make the body and the legs separately, before anyone asks :angry:

How good are you a sculpture? I mean, is this going to have a close resemblance to the in-game version proportion and colour wise?

Pretty cool project, but why even take pictures at such an early state of development? It's like making a thread called "check out my new patio!" and posting some pictures of cement bags. :P

This was my reaction as well... but I think as long as DavoX doesn't tell us any features he plans on adding, and then later doesn't include, he should be ok. Oh... and don't give a finish date either cause it can really bite you if you don't meet that date! :P

Well I know it's still early... Might be because I showed early shots of my maps always :P

Not trying to be negative... this way we get a FULL idea of the evolution of your sculpt. :P

I take reference images of the things I make all along the way. I have many thousands of images of projects from the last 20 years. I mostly do it because of recall issues though. In some circles could be called Mr."Hell! I guess I DID make one of those!" BlackCat

I like this idea, looking forward to seeing the other stages of your sculpture, so, are you going to post pictures of your creation as you go along? or are you going to wait until you completely finish it?

either way, good shit! :P

I'm going to post as I go along :P

Going to post pics tomorrow BTW so stay tuned.

Also, since a lot of people here have access to strange rare material... any of you guys have full frontal, side and back views of the Octabrain model? I only found some top and below pics that are useful and other two pics with inclined views which are only partially useful. I need full frontal pics for better reference.

I will stay tuned as long as you don't ever say "W.I.D.". :)

Thanks!

I didn't even add the bumps and polish on it at that particular time ;)

Now I'm working on the head. Making it a separate part which I'll add to the main body after baking it.
