Garamon of artistic modeling rebuilt as "a living thing"
Without grasping the monster as a costume, it is released objectively once, deciphered as a modeling object-disassembled and reassembled as a living thing in high resolution-it is easy to make it into words, Ryu Oyama is a complete "genius-like" creature-based writer who can easily accomplish such actions.
Decayed Garamon (from "Ultra Q") by the hand of Oyama, expressing "the death of Garamon beyond the epoch of a long time", a highly creative work that could not be seen at all in the world of monster modeling so far It has become.
It is very dangerous to use the word "art" easily in the world of modeling, but it can be said that it is a masterpiece that makes you think, "If this is not art, what is art?"
The original clay model, which was about 140 mm in height, was converted to 3D data by CT scan, and it was scaled up to a powerful total height of 200 mm. Using the latest CT scan technology that can scan even the air layer, we will produce data that clearly picks up the details of the original model at a highly capable factory that receives requests for production from home Hollywood.
Materials are mass-produced from hollow molded polyresin. Choose materials close to plastic different from normal polyresins, and with conventional materials, it is easy to handle the tips of thorns and other materials that are easily damaged.
