Rob, I have been 3d Modeling since 2004. Started out with Maya. I have used Softimage (which i really liked before it got killed off), Houdini, 3dsMax, Mudbox, Modo and Z-Brush for modeling. I actually prefer Maya (or a primary package) for hard surface. But for concepting, organic modeling or fine details I use Z-brush.

I have some more of my modeling work at: http://jlmussi.com/

Impressive work all around. I started off in an old Amiga program called Truspace (which was terrible), then went to Max, Lightwave, then attempted to transition to Modo but wound back with Lightwave just because I already knew it. ;)

Anyway, great work. I can't wait to see how you finish this.

I decided to do a video update on the Neck Armor for my 3d Printed Apocalypse Bust. Bust was not initially able to balance itself without possibly being glued to the base, which is not something I want to do at this point. I decided to front-load the Neck Armor and thus had to re-design parts of it. Front loading the armor successfully balanced the piece and will take stress from the final base.

Really great work all around. Love your clean modeling and finishing work. Just out of curiosity, how much weight did you end up using to hold it down? Again, really nice work and thanks for sharing the video.

Hey Rob,

I ended up being able to put 4 pounds of weight. I think once I design the final base along with the weights it will hold up like a champ.

The amount of prep work is massive on this! One of the seems on the armor i have to do some more sanding on to get it completely smooth. Seams are somewhat tricky to complete erase. I also recently started using higher grit sand paper on after my primer...I was using around 220 but I think I was taking off too much.

Hows your sanding process go? Do you use filler primer?
