Sometimes you focus on creating models that you think will sell well, and sometimes you just want to model something that’s downright fun to make. 3D artist Juan Camilo Alcaraz Cartagena (known as Alzarac on TurboSquid) is usually focused on making furniture models, but he got inspired by last year’s release of Rogue One and decided to build this awesome New Order Stormtrooper helmet.
