Hawk: A Real Horse in Miniature

More photos of Hawk below! Click any to view much larger.

Hawk is a traditional (1:9) scale gelding. Hawk is a bit unusual: he is a 3D scan of a real, living horse, digitally adjusted, printed with a 3D printer, and cast in artist's resin for you!

Hawk is hollow cast in white resin with steel rods in his legs. The photos on this page are of a "normal" resin from the edition. I tried to maintain as much of the scan as possible, while making some adjustments to repair areas that did not come through in the scan (some parts of his face, the area under the halter which I digitally removed, the insides of his ears, and some areas directly underneath his belly) and for visual and production reasons (I resculpted his tail to give him a braided tail, since the real horse is a polo pony and the scan was lacking in detail in this area). I used other scans of the same horse as reference when rebuilding these areas and tried to keep my artistic influence as minimal as possible.

You may modify your Hawk in any way you like. If you would like to cast the result you must contact me for licensing information and fees.


The Hawk pictured here is an unpainted, unprepped copy from the edition.

Here's a screenshot of the digital model of Hawk, complete with the real horse's coat color!
