Forgot to comment o the creature itself!

He's got great character.
A bit shifty, a bit aristocratic.
His facial expressions change with the angles: that's a bona fide 
performance-worthy puppet head!
I love the skin wrinkles.

I'm curious to see how he ends up looking, the skin wrinkle detail is VERY 
impressive for the chosen material. Does your 3D printer cut with a regular 
sharp blade, or with some form of heat?

The more I look at your results, the more excited I am about the 
For me for now, if I had the financial means, the most practical use would 
be to have a foam model made of the skeleton and muscles of a creature of my 
own design, onto which I could add the eyeballs and make a paper mache skin. 
This would make extremely durable puppets, with no loss of detail, and they 
would be made quickly, once the foam piece is ready.
I still see it as a possibility, but it would have to be paid for by the 
customer of an eventual big project.

The three remaining barriers I see for me to pay for your services:
-the need to make a 3D computer model to print (not many of us are trained 
with the software)
-or sending you the maquette so you can scan it in 3D (extra cost for 
shipping and scanning)
-being dependent on someone else's expertise, schedule and equipement.

Of course, all these obstacles would be swept aside if we lived in the same
