3D printed Pikachu

Duncan found a Pikachu model on Thingiverse. I needed to make a couple of changes to the design, including mounting the model on a larger base, that also had a hollowed bottom to avoid warping. I added lettering to the edge of the base too. Duncan added a hat with a peak to top things off.

The model was smoothed, and then primed with white spray primer, before a base coat of acrylics.

I added a wash of thinned orange to darken shadowed areas, and then added some highlights and detail to finish.
