I haven’t updated this place for quite a long time, but hopefully it’s going to change.
Since I started full-time job in November – my free time for kits got cut down drastically.
But. I managed to finish this Gwendolyn now and there’s hope for other kits!
She’s contest entry, for our GK group, I couldn’t post pictures earlier due to contest rules.
E2046 recast, not really awesome quality. Kit didn’t include base, I’ve made my own. Kit is both: hand-painted and airbrushed. Paints used: Vallejo Model Color acrylics, Dealer-Rowney’s Interference Colour (shimmering blue, shimmering violet), Pebeo Prisme Fantasy paints. Other materials: Glitter and some crystals normally used for nail decoration.
Crystals made using Copper(II) sulfate (I’ve grown those).
That’s the model I’ve bought at some promotion at HobbyLinkJapan. It’s 1:1 scale Little Owl from Gunze Sangyo, which is re-print of Airfix model.
This time I decided to record videos instead of taking WIP photos. Or rather it was forced, because taking photos while filming doesn’t look good and it’d take additional time to montage whole video (Special thanks to my Boyfriend for putting it together).
Anyway, since it’s WIP and I didn’t finish it yet, here’s PART ONE of the WIP.
E2046 contest’s rules finally allow me to publish entry and wip on my own site, so here it is.
That’s figure I’ve been working on for about month, and which I’ve finished over month ago.
A lot of blue is used here, because once I’ll start other kits I’m having in queue now, I won’t be able ot use it for a while, and I REALLY like blue. And black, but it’s boring when it comes to painting figures.
And in queue are: Raqel Gothic and Little Owl, which are going to be painted in brownish colours. So yes, no place for my favourite blue 😉
Right now I’m trying to finish painting commissions and I’ll be able to focus on models more. I hope.
I’ve finished this little creature. It was real pleasure to make this model. I wish there’d be more creatures like this one (nicely sculpt with fine details, which doesn’t have derp faces asking “kill me”).
Since I wanted to give it dark wings, like night’s sky, I though I’d use glitter (instead of painting stars by myself).
Vallejo paints as usual.
