Ignacio Echeverría was a hero that made something than only a few people is capable to do. He gave his life to save to others. Due to his heroic action a lot of people save their lives on the attacks that occurred last Saturday on London.
This is a little tribute to remind him for a long time, something less ephemeral than a tweet or a post on Facebook.
What do you do as tribute for this hero?
I consider that Ignacio acted like an angel for a lot of people that were on the Borough Market zone, so I try to mix this angel behaviour with one of his hobbies, the skateboard.
What models do you use?
As a base, I use a kneeling angel that is located on the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, you can find the model here.
fot the skaetboard I found a model on myminifactory that is good enough for the use that I planned, the link to the model is here.
How do you do the merge?
I have used Autodesk Meshmixer as tool for merge the two models, and after looking some tutorials on internet, I have been able to merge the models after some modifications.
What is the result?
You can see below an screeshot of the model as made:
Did you print the model?
