BA [Hons] 3D Design Modelmaking + Digital Art

I am a 3D Design, Modelmaking, and Digital Art student. I enjoy creating with my hands and prefer physical modelmaking, I have a lot of practice with resin and woodworking. I really like figurines, miniatures and collectibles but would be open to different fields.

Sagittarius Bow and Arrow

My project is a prop armor set. It is a bow with 3 arrows for a Sagittarius character I created. The bow wings are made from mahogany veneers bent and glued together. They have fractal burns and a resin inlay on the front face, there is a resin flame that goes up the middle to hide LED lights which help post production. The handle is carved from cherrywood and ergonomically fits my hand. The resin flames separating the handle and wings hide the LED battery packs and a flame can be removed from each side for easy access to the packs. The arrows are made from mahogany dowels with resin flames attached.
