I'm a digital artist and super passionate about sculpting.
I've been into collecting, painting and sculpting tabletop figures since I was a kid as well as a massive fan of RPG's.
As the years went on I managed to turn my passion into a career. I got to work on projects such as LOTR, Marvel, Dc collectibles, Doctor Who toys, Moshi monsters as well as lots of other projects.
In more recent years I've been working for lots of well known tabletop and board game company's. Working on projects like Darksouls the board game the upcoming Kung fu panda game, as well as lots of other projects.
I've seen the blooming of the digital sculpting as well as 3d printing age and love it.
I now exclusively work as a digital sculptor creating sculpts designed for 3d printing.
Why am I doing a Patreon?
Doing a Patreon will allow me to spend more time producing sculpts directly for my audience as well as allowing me more direct interaction with my supporters.
I would like to see a future where artists and their fans can interact on a more personal level, and where people can 3dprint the figures from the artists they want to support, at home on the 3d printer of choosing.
As more goals are hit I will be able to dedicate more time to producing sculpts, additional poses and redesigns each month for you my supporters. So the more people who support me the more I will be able to sculpt each month and the bigger the benefit for all of my Patrons :)
What will I be getting? (Paladin Tier)
- As soon as your payment goes through, you will have access to the Starter package (see below) The starter package is a collection of sculpts you can download and print straight away.
- Digital sculpts as 3dprintable STL files each month.

- Additionally each month you will get images, WIP shots and turn around movies, as well as early access to free files I upload to Gumroad.

Plus I also have a web site.
Starter Package details:
As soon as your first payment goes through you will have access to the starter package which currently consists of 10 downloadable (STL files) sculpts for 3d printing, and as more goals are hit more sculpts will be added. You can view these first sculpts over to the left in featured tags.
When will I be billed?
At the beginning of the month you will be billed for the amount dependent on the tier you choose.
Each month I will send out a poll.
The poll will be around 4 to 5 ideas of potential designs to sculpt. You guys can vote for your favorite, and I'll sculpt the top one.
How will I get my files?
At the beginning of each month after peoples payments have gone through I will post a dropbox link with the files in. The link will be active for 30 days ( please make sure you download the files as once the link expires you wont be able to get access to the files )
The one exception to this is the starter package, there will be a dropbox link in the post section that can be accessed by all Paladin level supporters.
If you are haveing trouble finding the links go to the post section and click on the tag for (starter package) or (paladin tier) dependent on what you are trying to find.
Additional information on tiers:
The files provided are all for non commercial, personal use only and are not to be redistributed or used for financial gain.-the exception to this is the merchant tier please see below-
The Merchant tier allows you to sell 3d prints of my sculpts for profit. This doesn't allow moulds to be made for mass production of casts. You can sell prints of any of the sculpts released via Patreon, Gumroad or that are on my website, www.duncanshadow.com. As long as you are signed up for this tier you can sell prints of my work, if at any time you want to stop you can just cancel your Patreon support. I reserve the right to remove supporters from this tier at my own discretion. Part of the agreement also includes that you will wheneven you're posting on your website, or on social media etc will credit me (Duncan Shadow Louca) as the sculptor and creator of the work. I would also appreciate it if from time to time you would post a link to my facebook or patreon page :)
And finally thank you
I want to thank you all for your support, patrons or casual browsers. It means the world to me that you would consider parting with some of your hard earned cash to help me do what I love, and sculpt for you guys.
If you can't afford to become a Patron then that's fine any support you can offer is gratefully received, whether in words of encouragement, sharing my social media pages, or sending me images of sculpts of mine you have printed.
Lots of thanks Duncan
