Hello all,

Here is another kit I just recently finished. I went for more of a wild bright color scheme. Things of note, this kit is not in the database. Her original color scheme has her with black hair and a red backpack.

Some cool new things for this kit that I tried / used were her tanlines. I also was able to use the new pastels I bought so the shading showing improved.

Hope you like her :)

Redliger (10 kuukautta sitten) #29376292Ah, well I will look into seeing what better sealants are readily available to me. If it makes that much difference it should be well worth the price.
If the sealant doesn't help I'll look into what mediums work with the Tamiya acrylics I'm using. They give me a very nice smooth finish already though.
Thanks for the insight. I appreciate it :)

Tamiya does have flat mediums for their paints, both regular acrylic line and enamel ones. If it's easier to find it might help a lot since sealants I listed might be tricky to get, especially locally.

Marabu can usually be found in craft stores, the ones that sell scrapbooking stuffs and such, Tamiya and Mr Super Clear are specifically for model use. Mr. Super Clear UV, however, is very popular with BJD community for its UV protecting qualities so you might look for it in doll stores...

ponnie (10 kuukautta sitten) #29375110Sealants really make a whole universe of difference. Expensive ones that are made for garage kit and model bulding spray in a finest mist to produce a thin solid layer. Their spraying thingy can also be easily controlled. Cheaper ones spray like a garden hose which results in thicker uneven layers. I used cheaper one when I was building Shinobu and got just that, patchy pastels >__>
After that I tried many different sealants and only those I mentioned work nicely and produce velvety matte finish that's easy to shade. I mean, there must be more good ones but these I tried myself. Just give it a try and you'll see the difference.
Also might help: there's a matte medium for most paints so if you add it to your paint mix you'll get a smooth matte layer of paint that's easy to shade.
Hope it helps~

Redliger (10 kuukautta sitten) #29353452Aside from having a fluffy brush and an expensive sealer I'm pretty much doing everything the exact same at every step.
The sealer I use is about as cheap as can be. Since I seal the paint before shading, it could be making the surface uneven.
I probably just need to be a bit more patient with the pastels.
Gloss is the very last thing I do. Its just a gloss medium I brush on after everything is finished.
Thanks for the explanation though.

Pastel shading can be very smooth. The key is applying it to a very smooth matte surface, this is when it blends best.

To get a really smooth surface while hand-painting you need to thin your paint to a very liquid, milk-like consistency (I used to use a mixture of water, acrylic base and retarder) and apply it in thin layers. 6-10 layers depending on the pigment should do the trick.

Then you need fine pastel powder. I like to use a tiny grater for it but for a finer pigment you just rub the chalk onto some 400 grit sandpaper. You get a very fine colored dust this way and it applies smoothly.

Then dip a soft fluffy brush into that chalk, add some powder to the part you need to shade, clean he excess from the brush and blend softly as if you apply make-up. If your working surface is smooth it should work perfectly fine. It's best to shade satin or fully matte surfaces as it won't work well with gloss or semi-gloss. Gloss just won't stick well while semi-gloss will get patchy and dirty..

I have a lot of step by step pics showing the whole process here BLOG #23272
here BLOG #27479

Not totally perfect (these are my first two kits) but you can actually see how it works depending on the smoothness of your working surface. And with brush painting smoothness takes a lot of patience.

P.S. if you seal matte before shading and still get patchy results it might actually be the sealant's fault. I tried so many I lost count but honestly most ready available matte sealants are rough as heck which results in patchy shading. Best ones (the smoothest) in my experience were Marabu, Tamiya, Mr. Super Clear Flat UV. The last one is my main sealant now, it's soooooo good. There're also great canned sealants by Gaianotes but these are quite hard to find outside Asia.

Haha, you are so excited! I like that. All the kits will be done eventually. Just one at a time. I don't want to lose any parts or get confused as to which parts go with which kits.

The shading on her face emphasizes some parts and make them look a bit sunken in, like around her eyes, which makes me think of an older person. Hopefully that helps you understand what I meant. Though, like I said, that is very possibly just my own opinion - it could look perfectly fine to others!
Will you be including any work-in-progress shots for your future kits? I love seeing those when people work on kits.


Ah, I see what you mean. Thanks. My new pastels give me many different skin tone options. I'll look into trying a lighter color or not shading that area on specific kits I want to look younger.

Also, yes I plan to include WIP photos. I will also include explanation as to what I'm doing on such photos. Some kits just get completed so fast xD I forget to take progress photos.

I'm not totally sure I understand what you mean by the shading on her face makes her look older, but thats alright.
Her hair was a mess, I tryed my best to fix it. I was hoping to do something cool with the different color pastels, but I didn't realize how strong they were. :( so I know its a bit odd.
I've done kits with gradients in their hair. For this specific kit, I was tempted to give her a few strands in the front of a different color. Like some kind of extension or highlight. (I'm not familiar with the terminology of such things.)
I quite like the Tera kit also. Shes rather big which would allow for some really nice details. :)

Rajke (10 kuukautta sitten) #29340620Those eyes are looking great. I'm curious if they are also hand painted? They got so many details. This blog made me curious about your previous work and seeing that the Miku and the Mirai no Takeo-chan even have a better paintjob impresses me. I'm curious to see how your next GK will turn out.

Yep, they are hand painted. I'm glad you like them :) I'm glad you like the Miku kit. She took forever to paint xD so I'm happy to hear you like her.

I'm glad you like Takeo-chan as well. I think her paint job could of been a lot better. It was hard trying to make her look like a different character (Houjou Kuniko) so I didn't think she turned out that good. So I'm really glad you like her <3
