Happy Holidays everyone! Today I’d like to share my latest work – this is Remilia Scarlet from the series Touhou Project by Ques Q (originally sculpted and sold by Gate River/Kaze Cross).
Friends and those in the hobby know that I have struggled with this garage kit for about 5 years LOL. I purchased Remilia back in 2013 (before the PVC was even announced) and since then she became my annual October/Halloween kit. After Halloween I would always put her away and she would remain in her box until the next year. This year, however, I’ve purchased a lot of kits so I decided it was time to finish up some of my older works.
I’ve tried everything on this kit – I learned to sand on her, used my airbrush for the first time on her hair and pumpkin, tried multiple primer types, wiped the paint endless times…she’s been through every type of paint I own, survived three house moves, and I’ve lost and broken parts multiple times over the years. Because of this my WIP photos are literally scattered from 2013 – 2018. BUT SHE’S DONE. Given her backstory I’m more than happy with how she turned out despite some small flaws. I blame her for a lot of things and half of my addiction to resin :p
Remilia is painted with lacquer and enamel paint. I decided to go with a slightly different style for her eyes compared to the typical anime vampire eye and went with a partially gold dress since I’m not a huge fan of orange lol. She may not be Christmas themed but to me she is perfect, a happy conclusion to the year and inspiration to push through more kits in 2018!
Thanks for checking out this blog. More pics are available on my MFC page or you can also follow my work on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. I'm also hoping to go a little more professional in 2019 so please stay tuned :p
