Hello everyone,

after looking for an English GK forum for a while I decided to post my treasures here now.
I don't want to use Facebook or any Discord because I'd like to have a nice cozy place with nice people to talk about my favourite hobby, so let's go ;)

I got hooked really fast on Kumiko while watching this beautiful series by KyoAni (thanks guys, great work!!) and seeing that there's no figure of her available I decided to do my own.
Using Blender and a lot of help from a friend I managed to get some decent data to print. The Eupho was done using Catia, and I can understand that no figure maker wants to tackle that. Making a mould of that one would be a nightmare.

All the parts were printed on a Phrozen Shuffle 4K, painting was done using mainly airbrush with Vallejo colors, her hair was done by brushing.

I made a background too, a 1/8 Japanese school window wall complete with sliding windows, curtains and real wooden floor. If you're looking for a nice floor, check bamboo bathroom floor mats ;))
Those windows alone needed 13 meters of aluminium to make. I hope it will be useful for other figures too.

So please enjoy!











I just had to try and add the correct manufacturer's logo, and the printer even printed it. That's a ballpoint pen for size ref btw.

Thank you all for watching & the great feedback!

@ SebastianLover, I used a key visual illustration of Kumiko for posing. It shows her in a really clustered music room, making all the probs would be cool too ;)
Btw, my computer I use for Blender & CAD is 10 years old... especially Blender works well on older systems I hear. Might want to give it a try.

I'd buy this in milliseconds if a company actually made it, even if it cost several hundred $. Incredible work!

Wow! This is super impressive. The overall figure is really cool and there are some really nice details.

Nice job! I really like the pose and straddling her across two chairs adds a nice casual feel to it, like you just walked in on her practicing after school. The instrument in particular is really well done. I really would like to get into Blender, but step 1 is getting a better computer instead of my 9 year old dinosaur.XD

What a nice and smooth sculpt! My dream is to 3D print my own models (and some MMD ones) and make them into figures. Unfortunately, money talks and a 3D printer isn't my priority investment at the moment. It's nice to see another article like this. Especially of someone using Blender.

Nice. If this would be availabe as a scale, I'd get it.

Wow, this is amazing! She looks incredible, it's always nice seeing people's custom figures and all the work that goes into it!

Thank you for your kind words!

I really wish one could get rich selling figures, but I highly doubt it. For starters I wouldn't want to deal with licensing issues ^_^;

Blender is a cool piece of software. It helps to have a professional CAD background though, and of course you need to practice and practice some more. And then you don't have any time left for printing and painting your works, argh.
