Next project - a wych duo with toy!
Toy's succubus lady:
and mine - Lelith Hesperax:
We're planning for these to be ready late october, and so far are getting super excited and planning every tiny detail while completely ignoring the big picture, haha! We're both busy at the moment with other stuff for a bit unfortunately, but we have officially started these as of two days ago...when we wrapped each other in duct tape and then cut ourselves out so that we could make some accurately shaped body forms to work off of. Like so:
....they were not very flattering photos. Being wrapped in cloth tape will do that to you.
Apart from that, no progress yet - we've got a mood board going on here: http://pinterest.com/dessertfox/season-of-the-wych/
And to answer Finn's armour question from my 'what is this on the ribs' thread over yonder: I think it'll be a bit of a mix. For mine, I was originally thinking I'd vacform the segments of the thigh pieces (...cuirasses? I've forgotten what they're called) and the left arm, but on reflection I don't think that styrene or ABS will hold up to being riveted together without the risk of it tearing. Could be wrong though - if anyone has any experience there, I'd love some advice!
Alternatively, and much more messily, I recently tried out a new method of armour making for a client that could be a good idea. Base of thick cardboard, paper mache, and fibreglass over that - it was really sturdy, very light, and not brittle; which is what I really want with this one. I really don't want to sit down and have something snap and stab me! I have the luxury of a little more time with this one than I did with that commission, so I should be able to clean the pieces up and get them looking nice.
Helmet I'm looking at starting on as soon as I have some time this week - planning to get a head form done, and start sculpting!
I'll let toy talk about her own awesome plans - we'll share this thread to keep things tidy [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/smile.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='smile.gif' />
