Fantastic. Can't wait to see this progress.

 

I own this mini, so I can't wait to see how you paint her up.

The modifications look great, and I appreciate the mythical and etymological perfection of your magical water-linked character literally being "A Undine."

Hooray goggles!

Great conversion.  The closeup of her face looks like there is a wart or casting flaw on the right side, below the eye.  What is that?

 

Also, why is there green stuff on her rear end?

 

I’m really curious to see what kind of color scheme you come up with!

Thanks for looking.

 

@Rigel : Wow.  "A Undine" didn't occur to me.  It must have been fate.  Thanks for pointing it out!

 

@Darcstaar : I did some surgery on her right eye, cutting away the lower lid.  The shiny surface of the cut-away metal was catching the light weirdly in the photograph.  And the green stuff on her rear end was to give full coverage by the bodysuit, rather than just underpants.

 

All that cleaning, conversion, and assembly work took about 5 hours.

 

I spent the next hour on the basing: 30 minutes sculpting a few rocks, and 30 more minutes sculpting waves.

Then a 90-minute speed-painting session -- first a value-study in brush-on primer (blends of White and Black), and then the skin and hair and 2 shades of blue glazes (variously on the water, bodysuit, and spear).

She is pale like sea-spray or moonlight on the water.

Another 90-minute session.  Eyes/face; goggle lenses; glazing, smoothing, and lining.  Some highlights up to white.

Almost finished, I think.  She needs greens and purples to get the iridescent mother-of-pearl effect that I'm imagining on some parts of the armor.
