In this article, Nesso 3D experts will walk you through a behind-the-scene of our latest 3D modeling project – Bakugo of Boku No Hero Academia.
Just like with our previous 3D printing project, the whole process of producing our Bakugo model for printing consists of 4 stages.
Let’s skip further ado and get a sneak peek at our process!
A quick glance at Bakugo in Boku No Hero Academia
Katsuki Bakugo, also known by his nickname Kacchan and the hero name Dynamight, is a heroine and one of the primary protagonists of the manga book Boku no Hero Academia, which was developed by Khei Horikoshi.
Katsuki is a rude, vainglorious, bad-tempered, and aggressive young man, especially at the beginning of the series. Katsuki has a tendency to be troublesome. And this bad behavior dates all the way back to his early stage when he was known to physically bully Izuku Midoriya, whom he perceived as powerless.
With his Explosion Quirk‘s power, Bakugo used to be extremely condescending to the people surrounding him.
However, after Bakugo was accepted to U.A and got a taste of his own medicine with several defeats, one of them is even coming from Izuku. Since then, Bakugo has gradually become less arrogant and bossy although some unpleasant traits such as yelling uncontrollably or having short temper still remain.
How Nesso built a 3D model of Bakugo in Boku No Hero Academia
As usual, so as to build our Bakugo figure from scratch, we did it in 4 principal steps, beginning with just an idea, then concept art, going through 3D modeling, and eventually ending up with printing the model.
Katsuki has an average height of 1.72m, with a slim, a bit well-built figure, and a fair complexion. He has blonde, spiky hair with choppy bangs hanging all over his eyebrows.
His eyes are sharp in bright red with the eyebrows always frowning, giving him a super aggressive and untouchable look.
As we mentioned above, Bakugo used to be very condescending to people around him and want to win every battle at all costs. So in this 3D printing project, we thought it would be great to depict the scene where Bokugo got lost in a battle and was completely devastated afterward.
#2. Concept art
After spending 2 days collecting reference materials and 3 days building the character, below is the concept art outcome of Bakugo from Boku No Hero Academia:
#3. 3D modeling
After having a concept art of Bakugo in Boku No Hero Academia, we rolled up our sleeves to get started doing the 3D modeling stage from his kneeling position holding a heart-shaped grenade to the smallest details like the blood dripping, the water under his knees, the wrinkles on his shirt, etc.
#4. 3D printing
Using the STL file, we then preprocessed the Bakugo 3D model with Chituabox & Materialise Magics. Finally, we completed our 3D figure by printing it with resin material and painting colors on it.
That’s it! We’ve just walked you through Nesso’s complete process of 3D printing Bakugo from Boku No Hero Academia.
