Maledrakh's B4Core#120 Chibi Sophie

Recommended Posts

A bit of a departure for me today. Chibi, a style formerly known as Superdeformed before Anime became popular in the western hemisphere.

 

I am not particularily fond of Chibi; that superdeformed cutesy manga look that has insidiously permeated the pop culture of today. Sigh. What is the world coming to?

 

Now they also have infiltrated my beloved Bones...

 

During the Bones 4 kickstarter campaign, they offered chibi versions of some of their existing minis as free additions to the core set as social stretch goals, adding them one by one as their target numbers for facebooks shares, retweets, tagging pictures or other interactions on social medias were met.

 

The full six chibi miniatures did end up In the Bones 4 core set. As I am sworn to do the entire Bones 4 core set, I am honour bound to paint them all eventually...gah!

 

So...I painted the chibi Sophie for starters.

Sophie the succubus is the Reaper Mascot of more than 20 years, and versions of her have beed used for promotions and to mark special occasions since way back when. She has had figures in every Bones kickstarter. In Bones 4 she had this chibi and also a normally scaled mini.

I went for the classic red devil look, with the opaque but shiny black eyes that I find most fitting for devils and their ilk.

 

Is it cheating to do the eyes in gloss black?

ARRGH! A giant-headed devil woman! She must be put to the sword!

Get her, Conan!  She’ll net you some good XP!

The eyes are very evil and intimidating.  Kind of the opposite of the allure I would expect from a succubus.  That being said, they fit!  Overall, you did a great job on her.

Love the paint job, but I can't take credit for that sculpt (but I would love to :)). I believe that was sculpted by Gene Van Horne.
