Melvin was one of the first people I scanned in Coney Island. He has been one of my biggest boosters and has become a real friend. He has a big family- 9 kids and several brothers, sisters and cousins. Since I first scanned him and his sister Melvina, he has brought back his wife, sons, daughters, grandsons and mother. Lately I have been experimenting with scanning faces, so when he brought his father out this weekend, I did bust portraits of both of them. I’m quite pleased with them.
Check out this video of him and his sister picking up their first portraits last summer- their reactions to receiving their statues is proceless!
What do you think- should we offer busts as a new product? These 3D printed high res scans look great!
So I finally finished modeling the Luna Park side tower, but I’m struggling trying to figure out how to cut it up for 3D printing! Approximate printed height will be 48″ tall.
In preparations for the upcoming exhibit at the Coney Island Museum, Scan-A-Rama is busy getting caught up on printing scans we made last summer. Cherry Delight’s evil queen from the Miss Coney Island Pageant is a gem!
Now that I have the boardwalk modeled and built, I am focusing on modeling the buildings that connect to it. The twin side towers that flank the park’s central tower are next on my list. I’m still working on proportions, working toward finishing the top but I cannot wait to get these printed!
