Concept

The sculpture Mechanical Head was created c. 1920 by Raoul Hausmann, an Austrian artist. I was attracted to this strange head as it symbolizes the Berlin Dada, part of the Dadaism movement that emerged in Europe in the early 20th century as a direct response to World War I. I liked the combination of architectural elements and anatomical modeling in this mechanical piece, and decide to recreate it in a dramatic steampunk style. The name I gave my image, Zygosis, means "biological junction" (Fig.01).

Modeling

In Fig.01 you can see Hausmann's original sculpture, along with the areas I pinpointed where I wanted to add steampunk elements. I modeled the basic head in ZBrush and then added most of the mechanical parts using spline models in Shade, which is a great Japanese 3D application that I've been using for many years now. During the modeling process I added the various parts to the model gradually, as if I was constructing a building. By doing this, the details were gradually realized (Fig.02 - 03).
