Captain VurstBlind

Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Description:
Mice and Mystics is a cooperative adventure game in which the players work together to save an imperiled kingdom. Its creator, Plaid Hat Games, includes many beautiful, detailed miniatures with the game, but a few key pieces are notably missing. Some of these have already been created by other designers, but one that I'd like to make is Captain Vurst.

This character is supposed to be used in a game, and I plan to 3D print it on a site such as Shapeways or similar service.
Wants:
The correct scale. He's 3cm tall with a base that's 2cm in diameter. The base it 2mm thick.

He must have an eye-patch, cape, pistol, etc... He must generally look like the attached image though I understand that it must be printable and some creative liberty is understood.
Don't Wants:
I'm not looking for a scale model or sculpture. I'd like the 3D printing schematic that I could then have the rights to print as many pieces as I want.

I'm not looking for a color model but one that can be painted after printing.
Ask for Sample:
Captain Vurst is the first miniature design I'd like. The winner will likely be hired to create a few more.
Software:
  1. any STL file format

Followed the instructions and used the picture as a guide. Since it is for a game miniature, I included a more "cartoony" variation version with adjusted proportions and a larger head, in case you prefer that style. Hope you like it. Thank you.

#3 Captain Vurst - Optimized file sizes by EntropyMachine
I optimized the models to have a smaller file size (with no noticeable quality loss) in case the printing service you use have a file upload limit. Thank you.

Great,thank you! Hope you have fun with the model. I've uploaded optimized versions with lower file size in case your printing service has some sort of file size limit (no visible quality loss)

Yes, it means I'm not looking for a physical model that you can touch, but instead, I'm looking for a digital 3D model that I can print multiple copies of on Shapeways or a similar service. Thanks for the interest in my project.

Hello. Could you please clarify what you mean by "I'm not looking for a scale model or sculpture." ?
Thank you.

I'm behind a proxy that blocked me from uploading the image. I'll try again this afternoon from another computer, but in the mean time any Google search for "Mice and Mystics Vurst" should bring up some images of what others have sculpted. I believe I'll be the first to have a 3D printed version though.

Mini Platform Shoe
3D Shoe Design Hi! I am looking for someone to design a “miniature platform shoe” for me. I was looking for something like this: https://www.shapeways.com/product/JGCG58DD3/women-high-heel-base-right-shoe?li=search-results-4&optionId=40465187 But with a platform. A platform under the toe and therefore a higher heel. I would like it with just the base, no straps over toes or heels. Here are some other ideas I found: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:31218 http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:273293 http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:470003 http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:399081 http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:43262 http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:146495 http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:550805 I would like the length of the finished model to be approximately 3 – 4 - 5 inches. If it is not too difficult I would like it in three sizes approximately; one 3 inches, one 4 inches and one 5 inches. Ideally, I would like three models: one 3 inches long, one 4 inches long and one 5 inches long. The platform part should be hallow inside. I am kind of flexible on the height of the heel and platform because I am not sure what will and will not 3D print well. I would have to depend on you expertise. These models will be used for an art project decoration. It really doesn’t need to be super strong (like able to hold up something) but I would like it to be smooth in the final print. I will probably want it in black. This is the first time I have worked with a 3D designer, so forgive me for any mistakes I might make. I am not even sure a design like this can be made? Will the final product be any good? If it does work out, I would like any help you can provide in having the model printed. What is the best material to have it 3D printed in? I was looking at the materials guide on shapeways and this seems like frosted detailed plastic might be a good option? By the way, how much does something like this cost to print and where is the best site to print? Thanks so much for looking at my idea and let me know the next steps. I have included a few pictures of my ideas. By the way, the top edge of my pictures of the shoes are rough but they are supposed to be perfectly smooth.
