Herein I'll take up the challenge of the infamous Jabberwock from Bones 1. I already attached the wings and sculpted their joints with Magic Sculpt. This piece is well known for its tendency to sag under its own weight. Others have come up with various solutions. I intend to burrow along the length of the left leg, as indicated with the green stripe, and embed a bent jumbo paperclip for reenforcement. Then I'll have to re-sculpt the removed surface, but after doing the wing joints that doesn't seem exceedingly difficult.
Finally got this awesome miniature in the mail yesterday and couldn't wait to get started. Meet Alice from Nocturna Models' "Fairy Tale Girls" line, sculpt by Alfonso Gozalo based on concept art by JesÃºs MartÃn. With such an incredible sculpt and amazing sample paint job, I'm probably not going to take much artistic license with the paint scheme and will try to follow JesÃºs MartÃn's color scheme as best as I can. With that in mind, this will be an extremely challenging project for several reasons: This is my first resin model, everything prior has been Bones! This is the first model I'll be pinning. I've done a couple others that required some assembly (though not as fine as this), but this will be the first with pins and putty filling the gaps. Also my first model with human hair and way more skin than I've done. Lots of suuuuuper fine freehand o.O. And last but not certainly not least, the first one I'm trying to emulate another artist's work rather than just throwing paint at a mini all willy-nilly. Please feel free to add questions, comments, critiques, advice, etc. throughout the process! I expect to put in a pretty serious amount of work on this piece and will need all the help I can get! Depending on how well the model itself turns out, I may explore the possibility of turning it into a larger diorama, sculpting a tree and a cheshire cat with some other accoutrement. Stay tuned! -------- Step 1: Pinning! This actually went a lot better than I expected. There are a few minor mishaps, of course, such as her right arm being about .5-1.5mm farther back than it ought to be, as well as a few joins that weren't as flush as I'd like. I think the arm is barely noticeable though, so I'm not too worried about it, and a bit of GS or procreate will bridge the small gaps elsewhere. Overall, though, I'm ecstatic with the results and am super excited to get her primed up and ready for paint.
Another day, another new WIP thread (at least I finished one this time). Having a go at my Guild of Harmony steampunk set, Dorothy still intimidates me so I'm starting with Alice:- Her feet were way too tiny to pin, so it's gone up the back of her dress (no idea how I'm going to attach her to a base, but that's a problem for future Aku-chan to solve). First attempt to paint her face didn't go very well (her eyes are tiny, it's going to be a theme with this one I think), after a scrub down the second attempt went better:- Skin is Vallejo Flat Flesh, given a Flesh Shade Wash and highlighted with Flat Flesh and 1:1 Flat Flesh/Linen White, with Sapphire Blue eyes and Splattered Crimson lips. I'm using the Blonde 'Disney Alice' colour scheme, I can still only do dirty blonde though but it does seem to work well with whatever that hairstyle is. It's a base of Oiled Leather, then a coat of Palomino Gold (I had to cheat and drybrush some of it), a Sepia Wash then another coat of Palomino Gold.
Hi, thought I'd post a picture of my first mini. Alice was painted entirely with artists acrylics, since that's what I had around the house. The white rabbit's fur was painted with artist acryllics as well, and came out horribly blue. The coat and pants were painted with a blend of Reaper Pro HD and artist acrylics, since my HD set 2 arrived. Set 1 seems sold out everywhere! I can't wait for the paints from kickstarter to arrive. Pictures were taken on my cellphone, I apologize for the quality.
