Buglips Holiday Special WIP

Recommended Posts

I just hope this turns out better than that other infamous Holiday Special, at least this one won't have grampa watching 3D 'space porn' and no one will be lamenting the lack of subtitles for 97.35% of the dialogue

I thought festive succubi just drained all your life energy, sorted out the good chocolates from your stocking, took your Dr. Who scarf, and went on their Merry way?

 

Interested to see where you take this. Thanks for sharing.

Yes, but she does it in a way that says "Love you, bro!" :lol:

Definitely looking forward to seeing how this progresses. And sure, a festive succubus might suck the life out of you, but, hey, what better way to go right?

I've decided to go with Sophie first.

 

So I spent some time filing mold lines. Overall she wasn't too bad for mold seams, but there were a couple of evilly-placed ones on top of the present. Did the best I could with those.

 

Next I decided to work on how she'll be mounted to the wooden base. Pinning seems to be the way to go, though she'll also have a liberal attachment of gel superglue around the base. Ought to hold her.

 

So to make the holes I'm relying on my manual pin vise with crooked chock:

This doesn't drill straight and doesn't go deep, but it should be enough to do the job. Using that I made a hole in my base:

A corresponding hole in Sophie's underpresent (not a euphemism, just the facts):

I didn't mark either of these, since where they meet isn't as precise as joining two parts like limbs or whatever.

 

That done, I glued the pin into Sophie. Once that's dry I'll wash her up and get ready for priming.

Some priming. Let me tell you, this feels very weird now. Also, it's been so long since I used my brush-on primer it took 20 minutes to get it back into shape and it was still a bit too runny.

 

And other primed bits:

I was thinking about Brown Liner and its famous durability, and I think I'm going to use Sophie here as a test to see if slobbering it all over a metal will provide additional wear protection. Maybe not, even probably not, but at least the blacklining part will be done either way. ::P:

D'awwww, what a nice gesture.

 

I see what you mean about the weirdness of working with metal again.

 

By the way, and before I forget *again,* I owe you for alerting me that primer does not have to be a stark white coat. In the olden days I would put on two or three coats of paint to get a priming white as solid as the ones on my canvases. I suspect it muffled the details.

 

Thanks to your examples, the light bulb went off and I realized all you need is coverage and a little tooth. So I have been putting on a much thinner wash of white for primer. Thanks!

I made the same mistake when I just started out! In the L2PK the minis are coated with a solid coat of white and it took me some time to figure out that it's not necessary to brush on do much primer.

Buglips, won't painting the entire figure with brown liner make it harder to see the details while you paint? I wanted to do the same with a figure, but I was worried that I'd miss the small details that way. Any tips?

Great gift idea, BTW.
