HOLY COW Roy!!! That sir is just freakin' beautiful. Now I'm gonna hide mine. My only grip with the set is wishing the arm gauntlets are made of diecast or some more sturdy material. The injection plastic, particularly the mounting posts seems a tad, well less stable when mounting those metal blades. But again, that's just me.
Did ya do a reroot or simply the lighting is playing trick with my eyes cos' I recalled her hair was more reddish?? Either way love the repaint & nice touch on that little hair decor. :thumb :thumb
Oh and Happy New Year bro. Steer clear from troubles ya hear me?
Leo!! Dude, like I said, it was seeing the kick-a$$ job you did on your figure that got me off my lazy butt to finish one myself. I thought yours was awesome! And I agree with you on the idea of making the arm gauntlets out of metal; I had a nerve wracking moment when I accidentally pried the gauntlet away from the mounting socket of the blade, and thought I might have broken the plastic part. Fortunately not, but man, I had a sinking feeling for a few moments. As for the color, I'm afraid my camera added a bit more orange to all the red tones in the pics; I didn't notice it 'til you mentioned it, but yeah, all the reds should be more red, and lemme tell ya, that hair decor was a frikkin' nightmare to do...
And Happy New Year to you, too, bro! Trouble? Me? Heh, I oughta be saying the same to you!
Fab5Freddy: Thanks, man! For the heels, I switched out the soles that were attached to the all black bootsleeves, and just painted the heel a bright silver; if I were really obsessive, I could've added the very small spikes she's got on her boots in the game, but I thought this looked good enough.
uramegak, Aki i tschi, Hardcase, Mlatch, romedome: thanks much for the good words, guys! Glad you like what I did with her!
Ray: Ah, you're too kind, man! Really glad you liked the body work; I used pastel chalks to add the shading, after having sanded the body lightly to remove the plastic sheen and undercutting the breasts to give them a more realistic sense of weight. One of the times where something turned out exactly like I hoped it would!
