Wip: Morte by Vispo - Part II

Here is an image of the reconstruction I did to cover Morte's boobs. It's not perfect, I know... but it's my first attempt at something like this so it will have to do!

A general view of what I've done so far...

To be continued...

Wip: Morte by Vispo

This is a beautiful sculpt by Vispo. I decided to alter her bodice a little as originally her breasts are exposed. I don't really have a problem with (tasteful) nudity, but in this case I don't see the point.
I think her face turned out nice, hope you think so too! ^^'

More to come!

Wip: Kaname and Tessa Bontakun - Ref photos

I thought it might be nice to add some ref photos of what I'm working on right now: the first is the artwork the models are based on (I wish all the girls and Sagara in the Bontakun costume were available, but unfortunately they aren't >_<).
The second is just a nice wallpaper of the 2 girls and I'm using this image to paint their eyes... of course I don't expect them to come out looking just like that, I'm not that good (yet? wishful thought! LOL).

Wip: Kaname and Tessa Bontakun - Tessa resculpt

Well well, after many days of putty, carving, sanding, priming and starting everything all over again, this is what I came up with:

Her eyes are not definitive as my thin brushes are ruined and I need to find the time to go to the art store to get some more. So I just made a sort of draft to check the color and the general the effect. Any suggestion would be appreciated!

Finally my display cabinet!

So, after long procrastination, because I *hate* going to Ikea, I finally got my display cabinet, the mythological DETOLF almost any modeler in the world has!
Why do I hate going to Ikea? Well, I don't know elsewhere, but here whole families take trips there as if they were going for a nice pic-nic or something. They bring their kiddies who are free to run around and climb on every piece of forniture. So it's really a nightmare, considering I always get migrains in malls under the best circumstances!
So, after a dreadful Sun morning spent in there, and a dreadful Sun afternoon trying to put the pieces together (not easy!), this is what it looks like:

Too bad I don't have room for another next to it, because it's already almost full!

Wip: Kaname and Tessa Bontakun

I got stalled again with my Goth Devil Girl, so I decided to start something else. Now, these were supposed to be quite quick builds, but then I decided I didn't like one bit Tessa's chubby face, so I started a complete resculpt!

This is a completely new thing for me and so it's taking time as I'm going by the "mess-it-up-and-try-to-fix-it" method! Right now they look weird and scary (Kaname's lips needed some fixing too!).

Anyway, I have hopes!
