The exterior scanned pretty well considering the small size. It was then exported to ZBrush to be cleaned up then improved for 3D printing.
Integrity & Accuracy
It was important for the customer to use the little frog sculpture as the basis of the design - it gave them something tangible as a starting point, so the design process meant only small tweaks to refine the original rather than starting from a sketch or mood board.
Refining & finishing
Obviously it is possible to zoom in and create very clean edges and shapes in the software which is a huge benefit with small objects. Alongside this it was necessary to keep some of the spirit and feel of the original sculpture by keeping the slight irregularities in the surface.
