 How it was made

Primarily a project to practice sculpting and getting shapes, symmetry right.

Then the project went on a long hold  and put to the side waiting for inspirado. Then after some more changes, something was beginning to take shape and inspirado came flooding in.

Right arm. Shoulder pad caused some issues. Cross bones on ammo also a bit tricky. To give clean edges the barrel became brass.

Left arm - Chainsword needed quite a bit of knifing and sculpting to get the teeth to go all the way round. Carving 'KISS' was difficult. Deciding on the trim took a while.

 Tooled up.

The buckle needed to be resculpted and the fur on the left knee. The rose is fragile. The leather shirt got a bit battered. It got soaked in superglue to toughen it up.

Only glimpses of pink remain!

The painting was another challenge. Fear of jamming the moving parts. The ear piercing for example no longer is free to flick about. Airbrushed the base coat with some shading. Coordinating the colour scheme was a slow process, but bit by bit it came together. Doing the NNM (non metallic metal) was fun as well as picking out the highlights.
