Thanks for the compliments, GM! But, yeah, I couldn't agree with you more on Leia's head
- hopefully the eyebrow mods will have the effect I'm looking for. If not, I'm goint to have to dremel out her face (which will make me very sad - it's one of my favorite Leia sculpts) and replace it with something not so... 'Leia-ish.'
I hope you do your version soon! I know anything you cast will come out terrifically!CommanderKorbra
Thanks CK! That's quite a compliment - I'm honored!
As for the paint, it's from the Testors' Millitary set (for airplanes & camo). Using this set, the first thing I did was cover every thing from Daala's collar to the end of the pant legs in Testors 'Dk Gull Gray Fl' (flat). I wanted the green ('Camo Green Flat' ) to be uniform, but not too dark. I figured painting this dark oliv'y green on a relatively light gray (despite it's "Dk" name) would get the desired effect. And I was happy with what came out.
After laying down one coat of the 'Camo Green' , I went to town with a dry brush of the green mixed with the gull gray & some of Apple Barrel's 'Apricot' (used for the hair color as well). I wasn't sure how it'd come out, but judging from your responce, I think it gave the olive green just what it needed to have. CHEWIE
Thanks again, J. Like I said,
... And as for the paint job, 'I learned it from watching you, CHEWIE, I learned from watching you!!!' ...
I'm wicked glad you like it - thanks for showing me the way!Smartypants
Thanks Smarty! I'd be far to frightened of wrecking her to add articulation at this point, but If I ever do another (not likely - she was SUCH a pain thin the butt!) I'll see what I can do
Oh, and I'll try to get the camera tomorrow and take a pic of both of them standing together - pretty sure the scanner won't let me do what I'd need to. Master_Phruby
- You're far too kind! Another awesome compliment
I'm not a big fan of the micro bodies - tho' your work is
begining to sway me
and the baloons would
look cool! Maybe someday I'll give it a try & hope it come out as well as yours!
Anika's face is a little too cartoony for me - I honestly can't see me using it for anything yet... but damn, I think you just gave me a great idea - a different agent w/ removable hair, Courtney Krieger! Heck, she even has the right shaped & colored eyebrows... Thanks M_P!!
