Mion & Shion Conversion

Time for an update! Thanks to those still following, I know my progress is pretty slow! drop

So sense my last update I have gotten a fair bit done! In fact in am n to painting

One of the last mods I had to do was change the bangs. I initially sculpted all these tiny hair pieces, but in the end the bangs didn't really match the style of hair the characters have. So I scrapped them and made more "simplistic" looking bangs.


After some final touches, all the pieces were primed and ready for painting. I know there are some flaws in some of the parts... drop drop 
I have a lot of the painting done! In fact Shion is ready for assembly! ^___^ Unfortunately, I don't have any really fancy techniques to show you as I hand paint everything.. no airbrush! >.<

Finished hair pieces

Faces! The pupils of their eyes are actually really dark green, but you can't really tell in the pictures drop Used some Future floor Finish to give the eyes some shine ^^

Scatter arm! lol 

Checking out Shion's torso! :)

I am still working on some of Mion's parts, hoping to have her finished up in the next few days!
I hit a dillema with her Tie, In the anime it's a pale green color. One the manga covers, its red! panic So I dug up some reference from the game! Red tie it is! (I was glad about the actually)

Thats all for now!! hug

Mion & Shion Conversion

So onward with the Wip! I have managed to finish up a lot of things... Most of the pieces have they're first coat of primer, and only need some minor fixings.

Shion's got herself a shirt,

 After lots of sanding and first coat of primer
 Shion also got her self some extensions! lol. Sculpted the ends of the hair with Magic Sculpt and lots of sanding and reshaping... first coat of primer...

Mion also got the same treatment to the ends of her hair.

Both models initially had super long hair (as you can see from the first post) so I had to massively shorten both girls hair. After that I needed to shape the hair into looking like it ended where I needed it too. Shion will be getting a yellow ribbon as well...

Now... I have had lots of updates on Shion this whole time, but poor Mion has been taking the back burner in this WIP. This whole time I have been sanding and reshaping her massive skirt ugh!

In total (so far) I think I have around 6 hours of just sanding put into her skirt! not to mention the extra hours spent modeling and reshaping, adding more putty, taking it away...Suspect haha, I'll stop now!
Anyway, it's quite the daunting task. I finally have some rough work to show you! ^_^

Note: The skirt was initially built on a wire frame, I built it up using Milliput and did the rest of the work using Magic Sculpt and Bondo (to fix some stuff!)

now it looks pretty crazy with all the colors and what not but this is the rough base for the skirt... (and her shirt I guess!) 

Well, that is everything for now! more updates soon with any luck!
Thanks for watching!
