Majora's Mask Skull Kid by kGoggles Majora's Mask Skull Kid by kGoggles

I was really upset when I found out the limited edition bundles with Majora's Mask 3DS and the Skull Kid statues were all sold out...I was obsessively looking at all the articles with a secret hope that maybe somewhere on some secluded corner of the internet I might find out where to buy one...I looked and looked until I realized I could make my own. Maybe I've never mentioned it before but my day-job is actually 3D-character modeling and animation. Modeling a character to print is a little different than for animation but this was a challenging but good learning experience. I think this turned out pretty well for my first 3D printed sculpture.

The idea behind this little project was to give people a chance to get a Limited Edition Skull Kid Figure if they missed out on the impossible-to-get ones that came in the game bundle. If you would like to purchase one, the link is here: bit.ly/1DMrMWC   I worked really hard on this, so I hope people will like it!

Here is a video of the different views of the statue: www.facebook.com/video.php?v=9… (if you have a facebook account, it would really help if you shared the post!)
And on twitter: twitter.com/karlen_tam/status/… (please RT?)

Thanks so much for your support! Please share!

I literally just bought the official figure, but I might get this in the future. Do you take requests? Or commissions? I'm working on some characters and I plan to get figures of them made at some point.

Oh, did you buy the figure that was supposed to come with the limited edition bundle? Nah I don't take requests or comissions, sorry! Way too busy for that, I just make things for myself that I really really want haha...

Amazing work!

Brilliant statue! Crazy how hard those LEs were to get, even more salt in the wound when you see all of them on Ebay. Clever idea to use 3D printing to make your own Skull Kid.

I know right? The crazy thing is, I called my local GameStop and even the person that worked there said she wasn't able to get one! That is so messed up!
Yeah I'm totally not gonna give any money to those awful people on ebay. I'm almost glad that I wasn't able to get the LE, because I ended up making something much cooler.
Thanks for your nice comment :)

This is awesome... I was bummed after finding all the figures sold out everywhere, too. I'd buy this, except I just dropped a lot on plants and seeds for the spring and a birthday present...oh well. XD

Thanks so much! Yeah I was really sad about it, but now I have made something that I wouldn't have if I was able to get one. 
So in the end it wasn't so bad after all :) It's okay that you aren't able to buy one, I appreciate your nice comment!

You can try sculpting, I think that might work better for making 3d prints. Sculptris is free :) And Blender for modeling, also free. If you need help, let me know because I love Blender and Sculptris

What a fantastic idea! He looks wonderful, too. Is he hand-painted, or is that part of the process?

Hey thanks! He was painted in the 3d program I use. And the printer puts down the color in layers during printing process
