Kalifa from One Piece

Kalifa was Iceburg's secretary and was the only female member of CP9. After the attempt to assassinate iceburg,  Kalifa ate the Devil Fruit Awa Awa no Mi, which allows her to generate bubbles to "clean" the strength off her opponents. The user can also shield themselves from attacks by condensing these bubbles into a giant bar of "soap armor". However, the effect of the devil fruit can be washed away with water.

shes actually my very first project fully made from a 2 part epoxy.. 

 after all the sanding and polishing are done, i sprayed her with a transparent plastic primer. haven't tried the regular gray primer yet but the plastic primer is really good,, it will only require you atleast 2 coats of paint then you're done..  for a more quality finish..  i used tamiya acrylic paints, its quite expensive for a small bottle but its really good coz they have lots of variety to choose from.. and for the final coat to protect the paint from scratches, i sprayed matte finish on her except on her glossy black dress..

all of my painting processes could have been better if i have an air brush specially when making some shadings but for now im still contented manual hand painting

 i failed to make the connections of her fish net stocking neater.. her eye glasses are made from plastic bottle and chicken wire..


Tir Mcdohl from Suidoken

heres my other project with commission..  a favorite game character of my officer.. honestly don't know this character, coz im not a gamer or maybe he became famous so long ago...    ^__^
like the usual ways.. i started it with an armature . it will give a better proportion and posture...  its not intended to make him more durable since the epoxy i use hardens like rock..  

 i still managed to add up his physical details even it is going to be covered up.. still concerning about proper proportions..

 after adding the details of his inner shirt.. i placed regular clay on his biceps so it will look like  realistically worn..

 then i remove those clays when the sleeves are already set/hard

 i also did the same process for the skirts,, the ordinary clay serves as a base frame..

 then the skirts are trimmed, sanded and drilled some seam line on the edges.

 same with getsuga ichigo,, that is not his final face and hair yet... just testing to see how he looks like, since my client is actually very definite about the face, so i really need to make him look as close as i can from the reference  picture

 he's still around 70%.. hope to finish this by july..
