Sleeping Pokémon Challenge!

Sleeping Pokémon Challenge!

Greetings, fellow Pokémon and 3D printing enthusiasts! Remember the rush of finding that rare Pokémon card or catching an elusive Pokémon in the wild? Well, I’ve embarked on a new journey, and I’d love for you to join me.

Recently, I crafted a Sleeping Sandshrew model. A sleepy, adorable rendition of a classic Pokémon – a stark contrast to its usual alert demeanour. Though Sandshrew wasn’t my first pick in the games, the sculpted design of this curled up, snoozing critter has surely won a special place in my heart. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s available on Thangs.

Here’s the fun part!

– What if, as a community, we embarked on a collective quest? I’m throwing down the gauntlet to fellow 3D artists: design your favourite Pokémon, but in sleep mode. Imagine an entire Pokedex of slumbering Pokémon models, ready for 3D printing! AND If we each link back to at least 2 other artist’s models it should leave a nice trail of discovery and show support for each other.

The beauty of this challenge? As 3D printing enthusiasts search for these sleepy Pokémon models, they’ll stumble upon a diverse array of talented artists within our community. It’s a win-win: a delightful treasure hunt for the printer and a great way to spotlight artists’ unique styles and contributions.

My buddy Ryan from Inspyr3D has already crafted the original trio starters catching some Zs in a pile. It’s a fantastic start! #imINSPYR3D

So, Who’s up for the challenge?

Let’s reinvent the world of Pokémon in 3D form, one sleeping creature at a time! Share your designs, link to fellow artists, and let’s make this the most epic 3D printing Pokémon quest ever.
