The AO Cowl
The AO Cowl was originally sculpted digitally in Zbrush before being 3d printed. This was the first time I strayed away from the source and started exploring more within Zbrush. My approach to a piece like this would be much different today. The cowl itself is cast in a flexible 40 shore urethane rubber which I have found will last a very long time while capturing the details of the sculpture very nicely. The finished piece is completely seamless. The ears of the cowl have been filled to hold their shape.
The sculpture was sculpted around a 24-inch digital head armature.
