Wip: Asuka Angel Version

This is a very simple kit from certain points of view, but a little complicated from others: while it doesn't have a frilled dress or many complicated hair parts, the fact that it is a nude makes it harder to hide gaps (and there were quite a few and nicely sized too!). So I decided to pre-assemble the body and then paint it, which is something I've never done before. While I was at it I also decided to give her a more rounded head as it looked a little flat, and also a hair partition line.
Doing so of course it became quite hard to reach certain areas to sand them. Well, a girl can't have everything, can she?

Painting her eyes was also a little tricky as her legs were in the way! (^_^);;
Back view: I quite like the shading along her backbone and... well... her butt! (^_^);;;;
Since I don't have a proper setting for photos here in Palinuro (and even if I did you wouldn't be noticing the difference!) I took them with and without flash to show better some details.

I have a base in mind for her which involves a bench and some leds but I'm not sure I'll be able to make it. However this, just as Shinku's one, will have to wait for September as I don't have the proper materials and shops here.
More to come, I'm currently shading her wings.
