Quick update while working on the mutants. Some time ago my pal Keyan Sark asked me to sculpt a Miko (a Shinto shrine maiden) for different settings.
I found this beauty by Hasslefree, which could make a nice start:
Hoping it wouldn't prove that difficult, Keyan asked me if I could make it double, so he could have two converted minis, one for self and the other one to give away. Challenges. I like challenges.
|And so I accepted. I'm easy, you know|
First thing was fitting the hakama (the trouser/skirt) and the upper garment, to make them look right.
|Volumes and stuff|
|Though they look like Arabian belly dancers in this pic|
Getting the hakama right needed more than one attempt. More than two. More than a hundred, I don't know. I got stuck in the folds, but it finally worked. So then I had to sculpt more hair and the tiny bag (which I was told to put by the side of the mini).
|Something in this fashion|
|The rear part of the hakama was also solved!|
|And a tiny Eldar-ish rune carved on the bag, as per request|
So this was my part of the deal. Keyan's outstanding skills made her look like this:
|Much better now|
So you better check his blog! You'll find more (and better) pics there :)
Back to regular programming soon :D
