I think she's the property manager /superintendent of a building in a really rough neighborhood. 

 

Nice work.

Thanks all!

 

@Hd, perhaps a futuristic slum lord...?

 

@KruleBear, That's part of the appeal with painting sci-fi and fantasy figures that have no specific backstory or color scheme; you can do anything you want. There's no rules. Apart from the blue scheme I mentioned above, I was also considering a natural metal scheme for the armor with the Adamantium Black undersuit. Lots of polishing with a Dremel tool followed by a black/brown or blue oil paint stain...

 I like the armor. However, I can't help thinking that the most common battlefield injury acquired while wearing one is being shot in the butt, lol.

I've looked at this figure and felt pretty 'meh" about it.  After seeing how you did her I'm actually interested in picking up a copy.  Nice work.  ::D:

Your version looks much more business like. The subtle colors look WONDERFUL with the red hair. She is a BEAUTIFULLY painted & based creation...the pink bunny makes the base for me. VERY WELL DONE!

Thanks all!

@Mad jack: her butt is a distraction; adversaries are so wrapped up in staring at her butt, they forget to pull the trigger...

 

Et al: Again, the beauty of sci-fi/fantasy figures that aren't associated (i.e. no backstory) with any specific character; there are no rules! Any colors - flat to high-gloss, any climate, any terrain, any degree of conversion, etc.

 

Just leave that butt alone...

      I would like to try airbrushing different sets of skin tones onto multiple copies (5+)  of the same female figure as practice and as a reference for other models. Anyone recommend a Bones fig that is large enough to have quite a bit of exposed skin, but cheap enough that lots of copies wouldn't set me back too much. Yaphima (sure I spelled it wrong) the Frost giant comes to mind first, but looking for other options

      Not as happy with Candy as I was with Sugar, but she was fun to paint. She does have pupils in her eyes, honest.
       
      I've just noticed a strip of white on the top of her left thigh. Great.

      A new kickstarter project from Kev White:
       
       https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hasslefriesian/artemis-20/description
       
      Don't think I shall be backing this myself as I don't do much that is bigger than 54mm.
       
      This seems to be happening off Kev's own bat and I don't think Hasslefree is involved. Whether that is a good thing or not I leave to your own judgement.
