Fandom Final: Social Media Sticker Drive

Fandom: Star Wars Fanlike Activity:  Collaboration, Collection, Trading and Content Creation Target Star Wars Fanbase is very large, but we are looking at older adults between the ages of 25 on who are either parents or those who purchase produce.  And to some extent, I could say we are also targeting the children. Social Media…

Final Project Layout

Here is my layout, some of the measurements might be a little off due to me being forced to measure with the calipers on the print. Rhino no longer was able to open and  I spent the whole weekend troubleshooting. The print is decent, good proof of concept, but with it detail, I’ll need to…

Fandom: Fanfic

So I decided to focus on fanfic as extension of canon work. Given the way BioWare treated how the ending of Mass Effect 3 would play into Andromeda’s storyline, and how greatly impacted the Andromeda Initiative would be with And since they are not releasing any downloadable content or continuing the Andromeda’s story, it means…

Fandom: Penny Raffle

Since Fandom equally does little for money, and yet prone to collecting, we decided to make it ‘cheap’ as it were. By making it a penny raffle, people could choose how much they really wanted it but without breaking the bank. Curious or not as serious people may bid less, those who desire it the…

Final Project Update

So 2 weeks ago I posted a bunch of stream of conscious  ideas of what to model, this semester seems to be super Borderlands-heavy with my fab pieces, as I decided to model the pocket watch of the game’s antagonist. Partially as a design challenge, since I’ve yet to do anything really detailed in this…

Co-Option Gif Collage

Week 5: Bar Redo and Final Sketches

Not much to say, redid my eridium bar as a slide bottom, had a had time closing the faces but I think it should be fine now. Ignore the extra top I saved for future iterations. Some super rough idealization sketches, I’m trying to commit by Wednesday and start the next set of sketches and…

Week 3: Saber Mount

Full disclosure: this week’s project was little rushed. I had measured the light saber diameter but forgot to take my caliper home to measure the rest. So I tried my best with a tailor’s tape, a metal ruler, and an online chart on screw size to get my size. And only a day to model,…

Fandom: Case Study

Fandom: Star Wars; Particularly a nice corner bases of the now Legends/Extended Universe series Republic Commando. Cohesion Tactics: Enforcing cultural or social norms, Punishing infractions Incident Summary: Gena and Izzy’s calling out on Dakka and Vik’s bigotry is faced with silence and/or antagonism by those who “support” Vik, claiming critical critique of the writing/fandom is reflective to inherent racism/misogyny…

Week Two: Eridium Bar Prop

So my enclosure is a prototype positive for a prop piece, testing out a magnet enclosure. So it’s to hold a light source and a battery, and that’s pretty much it. I might revisit it with other iterations in the future though before. Sketches: And here’s the models:
