Sophie, Werewolf Hunter

Recommended Posts

The conversions really do add some really nice character to her.  Her pants look great, but her ripped pawprint shirt is *outstanding*! ::wub::  time to sit back and watch the magic happen!

Interesting take on a Sophie...   I am curious as to what kind of texture you are trying for on the pants???  

I know its early stages but ...

 

are we there yet?

 

....  how about now?

Did you mean to put the scope on backwards? Usually the larger lens goes towards the barrel, the smaller one towards the stock.

Think he is using it as an Image Intensifier sight (Light Amplification night sight)

 

Are you going to remove the spurs from her boots?

NOT a very common accessory today in most places....

...unless you're hunting werewolves that is, then they're entirely necessary! :D

She looks awesome!

 

Although I do  not like her hunting werewolves, or any other wolf for that matter!

I suggest she goes Elfhunting!

'Elfhunter" sounds like a redactable euphamism for something, at least on these boards.

 

I really like the conversion - I think it's better than what I would have done.

The PAS-13s and PAS-22s (thermal sights) and the AN/PVS14s (Night Vision Device) I used in Afghanistan and Iraq still had the larger objective lens towards the barrel and the smaller ocular lens towards your eye. But since this is a werewolf hunting piece of equipment, it could very well be the next generation of night vision!

I was originally going for a blue jeans look, but my cross hatching turned out too coarse, so maybe its more of a rough canvas material?  I don't know myself!  ::):

As to the spurs, I am going to leave them on.  I couldn't completely divorce myself from the Western feel (nor did I particularly want to), and, who knows?  Maybe she usually gets around by horse instead of flying!

 

As to the scope, Bloodhowl is totally correct in that the larger side of a scope usually goes towards the target, but there were a couple of factors in play that made me decide against that.  First, some low magnification scopes (such as the one I use on my AR-15) are indeed larger on the back, so I felt I had some precedent for the general look.  Second, that scope is actually a cut down Space Marine scope, and, since that piece is so common, I wanted to try to mount it in such a way as to mask the connection at least a little.  Third, the scope felt more balanced on the gun that way.  The scope on my own lever action rifle overhangs the hammer of the gun, and I like that mounting location.

 

But, speaking of gun actions, I have no idea what action Sophie's gun would employ!  It can't be a lever action because it doesn't appear to have the right type of magazine, and it can't be much of anything else because of the lack of a bolt, pump, or whatever.  Now that I type this all out, though, I guess she must be using a muzzle loader (she does appear to have a hammer on her gun).  And I guess that that makes some sense if she's going to be shooting valuable and rare silver bullets!

Maybe it is some sort of Sharps Rifle?

We can't really see the 'important' bits that would reveal what mechanism it uses.

I can't see the lever that you'd find on a winchester repeating rifle.

There seems to be a centered cock on it, not a bolt, so that mostly rules out the early repeaters such as Krag Jørgensen and most single-shot bolt-action rifles.

 

The barrel has a hexagon shape outside, which isn't common these days.

(It adds weight without adding much, if any, to the structural integrity of the barrel)

 

It could have been a Springfield 'Trap Door' model, but they still had the cock to the side. Also, the barrel doesn't match.

 

Lets just assume it's a custom rifle, probably firing .66"(or rather .666") caliber fragmenting silver shells.

I suggest she goes Elfhunting!  Vampire hunting.

No that it's fixed, I agree!

 

 

She already looks pretty cool, Kuro!

      This one was for a facebook competition about color. The rules were, basically, don't worry about anything else but color. Do something different with color. I started with the idea of a dress palette of blue, teal, purple, and magenta. Once I had those colors in place, it was a matter of incorporating them in different areas of the model. I went with cotton candy roses and a galaxy print on the wings. The galaxy was a matter of stippling the dress colors (plus a bit of white) back and forth until the effect was convincing. Then I masked the body of the model and flicked a stiff brush at the wings to make star patterns. I then went back to the dress colors and stippling to blend them in a bit. This was a blast to paint, because I've never really done anything like this before.

      As part of my goals for this year, one of them was to actually paint a Sophie - so here is my version of the 2017 ReaperCon Sophie. She was fun to paint, but was she fiddly to put together and I had to fight paint chipping all the way through. Next time I will remember to give the model a good wash before priming! You can click on the pictures for the larger versions, and one day I will invest in a tripod and get the exposure settings dialed in properly as well!
       
      For those interested, the WIP thread is located over here.

      So to wrap up one of my 2020 goals, I figured I would start on actually *gasp* painting a Sophie! I have no less than 3 in my stash, and I figured I would start practicing some concepts from all of my learning while I was at it..
       
      I decided to pick the ReaperCon 2017 Sophie and since she has somewhat of an aquatic theme to her, I am going to shamelessly "borrow" some ideas from Disney...because why not...
       

       
       
      I did my usual priming routine but -THIS TIME- I added an additional directional light to reinforce a direction.
       
      Also, I have turned back to inks for some foundation work. This time incorporating Sepia, Orange, and Yellow for the wings. Glazing over the transitions established by the airbrush to set the initial values and tones.
       

       
      I followed up by using Reaper Burgundy Wine, Tanned Flesh and Fair Skin for the skin tones, including a bit of FW White Ink to lighten up the brightest highlights. I used Kimera Kolors magenta + White Ink and hit her lips. I might come back with a bit brighter color to hit the lip gloss sheen.
       
      I still need to work on blending the transitions between light and dark areas, and as well as obviously hit the arms and legs more.
       

       
       
      I also wanted to capture "Ariel's" aqua-emerald eyes. and I am REALLY happy how they came up this time. It doesn't hurt that this sculpt did a very good job of sculpting the eye area. So super-duper zoom to see the tiny eyes.

      Presenting my first (and probably last) Sophie mini, Mermaid Sophie!
       
      Got stuck on her wings so she sat unfinished for a long while, and I never did manage to give her non-googly eyes, but overall I think she turned out decent.
       
      As always, and comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      #160 Sophie the succubus is Reapers mascot of sorts, and has appeared in many versions up through the years. In this KS she has this model as the serving wench, and the Chibi one.
      Of the other three I have no idea about the backstory, if any. Maybe they are roleplaying characters of the Reaper staff or some such?
       
      #160:

      I went with the same red-purple skin I used on the Chibi version.  She is a demon after all.
      25mm base
