Hey gang, I've only been on here for a few months now but I just finished up this project for my kid, he wanted a Grogu doll for his birthday. So I set out to learn zBrush and hone my 3D printing skills. Being able to sculpt and print iterations of this project along the way proved extremely invaluable to learning how to sculpt 'in the box'! I'm currently in the process of making a sewable body pattern as well to complete this project.

My biggest challenge with only have a FDM printer is resolution and minimizing post processing which is why I decided to split the head in half and key it so I could print it with little to no supports and make for a cleaner build. One of these days I'll have the space and income for an SLA printer.

I'd love any feedback y'all might have as this is my first full run at 3D Modelling and I'm still a Padawan of 3D printing

Looks very nice. His eyes seems a little unnaturally big, almost looking more like a caricature of the character than an actual likeness, but the quality of the sculpting is really awesome.

A suggestion on where to cut the model on the head. I think it would be a mistake to cut it in the middle where all the details are. Would be better to cut it at the ears, so you have 3 models instead of 2, and you don't have to remove a seam line right in the middle of the face where it will very noticeable.

Thanks for this. I have a feeling the perspective setting in zBrush is adding a little to the exaggeration of the eyes but I hear what you’re saying.
My reasoning for the mid head split was approaching it like I was going to mold it and wanting to eliminate undercuts and therefor supports. And since personally I’m going to print it on an fdm printer, sand prime and paint it, all the seam line won’t be there in the end and the prep work is something I’m familiar with.
But your point makes a lot of sense to split it at the ears if retaining detail from an SLA print is what you’re going for. I’ll take a look and see what I can come up with, thanks!
