So work proceeds with my customized Avatar in my attempts to make her less ugly than the default model…
Notable modifications include lengthening and rotating the right leg, shortening the left, extending both arms, giving her a slightly more dynamic pose, and replacing that gods-awful sword with another (from Fire of Salvation).
Note the use of a Cryx bonejack for a foot-rest… I meant to buy a plastic one, but ended up with a pewter one accidentally (I bought it used for $4)… pain in the butt to saw in half, but it’s done now!
I used PP Armour Wash on all those sections, and then moved on to painting the areas that will be gold with “Umbral Umber” as a basecoat:
I also started painting the Cryx jack at the same time (silver and grey at this point) before realizing that I should probably paint the dirt around him BEFORE doing much more work on that wreck… I also needed to touch up the browns a bit:
Tonight I touch up the brown/golds, and then move on to the white! Hopeful to get that entirely finished today!
It’s interesting doing this in parallel with all the other models (which are all proceeding, albeit slower)… I’m enjoying it, but it’s tricky to mentally switch tracks so often!
Anyway, thanks for reading! More updates later in the week!
