WIP: Original Figure Sculpt Part 2

So here is some more progress

on the sculpting:

Refining the forms...  Also gave her some leg extensions:

Roughing out forms of her shirt...

I plan to cast this in resin so to facilitate painting I need to cut her into pieces (yikes!). After cutting her in half, I cut out a hole in one side and on the opposite side I glued a piece of plastic to act as a peg.  I then filled the hole with some miliput and smushed the two halves together.  The final result is a nice positive and negative connection!

Cleaned up her neck...

Cut off her legs and went through the same process as her torso....

Things are starting to come together and I'm beginning to think this might actually work!

WIP: Original Figure Sculpt

Just started this new project to sculpt a figure of my own!

Based on this sketch I did:

Here is the beginning armature with some miliput on it:

I built it up with a little more miliput and then throw some La Doll clay over it.  The gun is a 1/6 scale colt Python which I think game from a hot toys Rick from the walking dead:

This is my first time sculpting anything and I don't actually know what I'm doing.... !

Misato on Mini Honda Monkey!

Got around to taking some better pics of my Misato garage kit.  A thanks goes to my friend Linn for letting me use her lightbox thing.

WIP: Cammy (again)

Just started working on another Cammy resin kit.  This one is a bootleg cast of the Kotobukiya bishoujo figure.  Based on the illustration by Yamashita Shunya and sculpted by Busujima Takamaki.

Washed, cleaned, and pinned the kit which was pretty clean cast aside from a big mold line through all of the parts.  Just gave it a first coat of primer and found a few blemishes to fill and sand.  Nothing major so it should be a pretty quick build!

Reflect Cammy

Just found these old pictures of a Cammy garage kit I finished a while back.  Originally sculpted by Yoshizawa Mitsumasa (aka Reflect), it is still one of my favorite sculpts.
