Pinky:st Fonewearl dress update


Just another look at the progress on my PSO/PSU customs before I pack them away while guests were over for the holidays.
Added the inner shirt collar with the green putty, cleaned up the edges, and repositioned the arms with twin daggers.

Volks 1/6 27cm male dolls / armatures



Fed up with the lack of pretty guy figures in the resin kit and miniature hobby, I'm reaching out a bit into the Japanese custom dolls hobby and got a few.
If anything, they double as armature references for various projects.

I have enough hobbies as it is, so I'm not going in depth with these just yet. But they could be pricey and the attention to detail for them could be just as insane as the modeling kit hobby.

But for now, at least I bought clothes for them. My guy preferences are the tall, dark handsome type (stereotype'n, I know), office guys, uniforms, priests, and they MUST have glasses. I dunno. I just find glasses really sexy. :)

Here's just an example of what I'm striving for in my male dolls and what could be done with them. I MUST replicate that look when I have the spare time!

And just for reference, the 3 figures listed are Volks:

New-EB N/ Natural skin (in red shirt)

New-EB N/ Light skin (in chair)

NEO-EB GO/ GUY Color (in suite)

And a good look through for general tips: http://shineblitzon.com/broken/etc.html

25mm Sibeccai Akashic




I needed a sibeccai akashic mini for Monte Cook's Arcane Evolved role playing game. And had a specific idea in mind. Here I'm taking a Chainmail Tiefling mini and modifing her into a sibeccai. Lots of changes has to be made in order to make this work. But I'm up to the challenge.
In the end, she should look vaguely like a 25mm sized wolfen. At least, I hope she does.

First, I had to temperarily remove her legs so I can manuvour around better. Female wolfen wear somthing close to a thong to show off their powerful thigh muscles. It took a great deal of work, but I've managed to drill away the chainmail skirt and resculped an ass onto her. I've also hated the angular back muscles she has, so I filled it in a bit and rounded things off. Removed her hair to be ready for some new hair in the future. And removed the spikes on her bikini top. Next, removing her front chainmail skirt to make way for a long cloth one.

Just building her up in layers and smoothing everything out before adding more details.
I have to pay close attention to the edges and make sure they're even throughout the piece.

Nadia: stubborn mold release


Alright, this time I've soaked her for a month in clean Castrol Super Cleaner solution and still the mold release refuses to come off completely. To further test the thickness of the mold release, I've tried to sand down sections and eventually the stuff does come off. And the markings you see is another way to test the presence of mold release (if you couldn't already tell by the gloss finish).
Most of my other kits doesn't get this problem. So why does this has to happen on such a small 1/10 kit?!
Next, to soak her in different types of fluids. Napha is next. Time to bust out the chemical resistant gloves...
