Another day at the office

Here’s an enlargement for George Rivera at Additive Workshop.  The artist’s maquette was scanned and digital artists touched up the resulting digital file, and carved in foam on by a flat-bed CAD and a seven-axis robotic arm.  Sculptors assembled the foam blocks and hand carved the surface before brushing on a layer of oil clay.  Every square inch of the clay surface was gone over by hand; adding texture  and sharpening details.  The piece was then molded, and cast in bronze.
