Repainted eyes, take 2. Thought the pupils & irises were too big last time, so took another shot. I think I got it right this time.
Been wanting to take a crack at this for a while. 1:6 head with repainted eyes and freckles. I think both the irises and pupils may be a bit big, and may take another shot at it this weekend. But overall, feel pretty good about how things came out.
A good friend of mine recently picked me up one of the Play Arts Metal Gear D-Dog figures. The Play Arts figures are usually a smaller scale, but he looks perfect in 1/6! And it's so cool. Highly articulated (I don't think there are really any articulated animals available in 1/6) and comes with a bunch of great accessories. There are 3 heads (regular, eye-patch, and gas-mask) and each has interchangeable, articulated jaws (a regular mouth, one meant to hang open with the tongue lolling out, and one meant to hold an accessory, like the included knife or stun baton). He's in a sort of doggy stealth suit, which definitely works for a post apocalyptic setting. It would be nice to see animal figures with anywhere near this articulation without the outfit, but it's still incredibly cool. I haven't figured out what I'm doing yet, but I definitely plan to do some mods and repainting, and he should make a great addition to the world of the Radio Kings. But in the mean time, I thought it'd be fun to get some pics with Saint Crow.
Work in progress photo of my 1/6 post apocalyptic cowgirl. Not there yet, but I was really digging the look with the new respirator.
Currently repainting the 1/6 brick I’ve previously done. Wanted something a bit more weathered than the previous red. This is a small piece I had made for an art show, and I’ve broken it into 2 jagged pieces I thought would be good for photo shoots. Did this last weekend with paints I had on hand. Color looks great in pics, but looks a bit salmon in some light. Picked up some new paints this week, and going to take a crack at repainting all the loft brick next. Wish me luck!
Got an amazing deal on the ThreeZero T-51 Fallout 4 power armor through ThinkGeek. I'd made my peace with not getting it when it came out, but the price was right, and I couldn't resist. It's such a fantastic figure, so freakin huge! Thought I'd snap off a picture with my custom Nuka-Cola machine.
I also just finally got around to 3D printing a 1/6 scale Pip-Boy, so I am pretty fired up to get back to doing a custom figure of my Sole Survivor.
Marrow Deathblessed. I took this photo during the Saint Crow photoshoot this fall. I loved how it came out, but refused to post it until I named her, and have been wrestling with it since.
Deathblessed isn't really a name. Among the loose confederacy of tribal nomads the rest of the wastelands refer to as the Scut, the Deathblessed are rare. It has been said that they are unnaturally strong and fast, and can disappear in a moment. There is a supernatural reverence for them among the tribes of the Scut, and they believe that they walk with 1 foot in our world, and 1 foot in the lands of the dead.
I feel like she's about 95 % done, but I'm just not quite there.
So, now that I've been making 1/6 records, I knew I needed a record player. I've been looking for one for a while now, and finally decided I'd take a crack at just making my own. I feel like the design is totally something I'd pick up myself if I saw it.
