FUNKO POP Hi-Poly Models for Production and Print
Mango was tasked with sculpting Hi-Poly models that would be printed as toys for Funko’s Quake collection. Funko only provided a concept drawing of the sculpt. Mango was to find all relevant references and create sketches. From the sketches they were then tasked to create the model. Once the initial models were approved we then painted according to the reference and the concepts. These Hi-Poly models were all approved by Sean the creative director for accuracy and Funko aesthetics.

Hi-Poly to Re-topped and data prepped
Once we have a Hi-Poly approved from Funko we have to “Re-Top” and “Data-Prep” the model. Our goal is to usually take about a 4 million poly model and get it down to 4-10k. When data prepping we take a lot of care in making sure the model look as well as the “hi-Poly” version.
Once the models are “re-topped” & “data-prepped,” we usually output them to be used for various social media campaigns. Facebook 3D Posts are a cool interactive way for customers to view the toys. We also output 360 spins of the model for simple videos for outlets like twitter and instagram.
This is an example of the 3D model in a Facebook interactive post.
