Touken Ranbu - Shokudaikiri Mitsutada

This is a very mouthful name for such a charming character :-)

I love working on male kits, since there is not that many of them.  Plus this is a total eye candy too :D

Some very nice reference pictures

Almost done

Love Live girl

This is another girl from Love Live anime.  For the life of me, I can 't remember her name or enough patients to look for it right now  >__<

Those girls have the most intricate designs and patterns.  I really enjoyed painting the other girl, so lets hope it will be just as much fun second time around.

Dragon Crown Amazon - in progress

Another very interesting kit on my table.
This girl looks deceptively simple, but anything but that.  With a limited amount of parts, she have a lot of details, including a very intricate tattoo (decals were not included). 
This is another character that I am actually familiar with and admire the art this kit is based on.  Hopefully I can translate the art feel into the model.

 I am very impressed with how her arms separated from her body.  The muscle shaped created the breakdown. 

 After couple of long hours of hand painting, her tattoos are done :-)
I have to say that i am very happy with results.

I used a small mesh to paint her bra and underwear for scale-like effect.  Also used some nice Hammered Metal spray can from Menards.  It created some nice effects on her axe and her boots.

 Some extra few touch ups and she is done.

Cowboy Bebop Faye with Ein - workbench

I have a big project to paint all the characters from Cowboy Bebop anime.
For a change, I actually watched this :-)

I am starting with Faye.  All of the kits are older production and have very bad surface.  Even after soaking in degreaser for couple of days, the skin looks oily and weird.  Lots of uneven surfaces that need lots of attention.

It will be some time before I start painting this girl  >__<
