This is a kitbash of a generic resin fantasy figure from Solarwind Productions. It involved some re-sculpting among other things, all of which can be found at this in progress link: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234955215-red-sonja-kitbash-112/ regards, Jack
Been on this one a few months now, but the plan is to create the comicbook heroine Red Sonja from this Solarwind Productions fantasy figure: I used apoxie sculpt and green stuff mixed 50/50 to fashion some gloves, stylize her boots and and provide a base for her armoured loin cloth. I also added about an 1/8" to her waste by cutting her in half. Initially this was done to make it easier to clean up her vest top, but decided stretch her torso a bit since she was sawed in half already. ... some closeups of the scratch detailing: A torn ankle weight provided a source for the tiny metal discs: Primed and ready for paint... ----------------------------------------------------- I already had good deal of her skin tones done, but due to paint build up and a few specs of dust imbedded in the paint, I ended up stripping her down back to resin. So decided to take the opportunity to try something different next go around by taking a page from the old masters technique - Verdaccio. http://sockii.squidoo.com/what-is-verdaccio-and-how-to-use-it-in-your-paintings 1.) For the sort of pre-shading step, I kept things simple and just used an existing shade of green, Vallejo Olive Grey 70888. After an overall coat, mixed in some white and sprayed mainly from over head angles. Some further white and another round of spraying. Did hand paint some lighter tones on the face, but not too much as it would be covered later with proper flesh tones. 2.) I had been using Brown Sand 70876 as the base skin colour, which is what is seen here. Close inspection though showed specs of dust had been trapped in the paint, so after sanding them off, had to go to step 3. 3.) Mixing new paint, so used a combination of Red Leather 70818 and Green Ochre 70914. Second round of spraying, base colour is lightened with Basic Skintone 70815. This was followed with an even lighter application by mixing in white. regards, Jack
