Sean Langford is a "lead artist at Green Grass Studios", where he works on "modeling, texturing, animation, lighting, compositing, and editing", but his "focus has always been on character creation". Recently he entered a model into 3DTotal's periodic Sculpting Challenge and came in second place. With this amazing magical staff model shown above.
Here's the really interesting part: all finalists in this particular competition were awarded a free "3D print" from the GrowIt 3D print service. He's adjusted his model to become more printable, and here's the result:
Hopefully Mr. Langford will show us a picture of the printed model after it has been delivered. BTW, we'd encourage you to take a look at his other works at his website and gallery.
