Recent milestone in a long-term project to design and create multiples of a blank body system for sculpting in Lego minifigure scale.
The Modular Buck has four double-sided balljoints for the neck, shoulders, and upper torso. These dumbell balljoints have three different lengths between the joint; short, medium, and long. By positioning the lengths at different points the Modular Buck can be adjusted for height and shoulder width, suggesting a wide variety of body phenotypes.
Original Buck (green) is assembled from hand and digital sculpting techniques. The body is largely hand-sculpted using Green Stuff, joints were made precisely using ZBrush and CCA's 3D printing facilities. Casts were made using a homemade pressure chamber and Smooth-On products.
