Custom figure (1 year of sculpting!) and merchCustom figure (1 year of sculpting!) and merch

KlalaKlala15 päivää sittenDiary
Hello MFC!

It’s been a while since my last blog! I wish I could be more productive but I don’t have much time to sculpt lately. Next school year I’ll have both a job and university to handle at the same time so it’s gonna be even worse…

Anyway, it still did manage to finish a new figure! The characters are Shiina and Hoshimaru from Narutaru ENTRY #19929
Shiina has no figures besides a Garage Kit ITEM #92052

My figure was inspired by this illustration:



I have to admit I am a bit disappointed by the result. I liked how my previous custom figure turned out so I was hoping Shiina would look better
I spent waaay too much time making her so I can’t help but think « All this effort just for this? »

I'll probably grow to like her better after some time has passed though! It's always right after finishing a figure that I feel the most negative about it


Lots of annoyings little things happened: I cut myself on the finger rather deeply, one of Shiina’s hands got vacuumed by my mom (it was not attached to the rest of her body yet), I dropped her in fresh paint while painting her face… Both Shiina and I went through a lot haha

On a brighter note, I think Hoshimaru (the star shaped creature) turned out cute


I have also noticed that it’s been around a year since I started sculpting! :D (13 months to be exact)
I made a total of 13 figures since may 2018 ! (including the custom nendo that I didn’t make from scratch)


Obligatory comparison pictures:


Not figure related, but I also ordered some custom acrylic charms with my drawings on them! They feature Vocaloid/utau characters with endangered animals:

I won’t say more about them to avoid breaking MFC’s rules but if anyone likes them, feel free to ask for more info ;)

Thanks for reading/looking at the pictures! :)

Your latest addition looks a lot better than you might think. It perfectly fits the style of the drawing that you show. This figure is the smoothest you have made so far. A thing i really like are the legs. Especially the knees are looking great and realistic. Also i really like Shiina's face. Her hair also looks gorgeous. The contrast with the second color is big but it fits perfectly with this figures style. I agree with Hoshimaru, it looks spot on with the drawing.
Time sure flies. I wouldn't thought that already a year since your first sculpt has past. You sure did improve a lot over time.
Keep up the good work. :D

FlyingToNowhere (14 päivää sitten) #61307404Looks great! That pose looks pretty hard to sculpt, especially with just that one image to go off of. And Hoshimaru looks perfect!
Also, cool to see some niche anime love. I never got past volume one of Narutaru, but I did have the old dvd box with the t-shirt (that became pajamas because it was huge).

Yeah, the nice thing about sculpting your own figures is that you can make characters who would never get a figure otherwise! ^^
I'm happy to hear she looks good in your opinion, thank you for the comment :)

lesser-robot-cat (14 päivää sitten) #61319654Nothing to be disappointed with here. Your sculpture looks just like the drawing, the paint is good, the texture is smooth. It's lovely all around.
Maybe all you need to do is look at it from another angle. Right now you could still be thinking of it as a project instead of a finished product. Why not take a photo with some flowers around the sculpture, or outside with grass in front of the base? It might warm you up to your creation and let you feel some of the pride in your work that you've already earned.

That's a good idea, I might try it out ^^ I'm glad you think the figure looks good!

ArmosKnight (14 päivää sitten) #61345942It's a great figure and you've improved a ton from this. I sculpt myself, so I know the feeling of disappointment you feel. I've remedied this somewhat by expecting that feeling while trying to also be realistic about my accomplishments. It's hard not to get hyped by how you think it'll turn out!
Anyway, I look forward to seeing more cos this is cool.

Thank you!:) It makes me feel better to see that you and the other people who commented like the figure! I guess feeling some dissatisfaction after finishing a project is just part of any artistic process ^^

MattKaySeven (14 päivää sitten) #61340059Well, the Head ( Face ) and Hair is the most difficult part on a Figurine, if those are not right, that can ruin the whole apperance,...but i can not share your opinion,...the Star ( Fish ) is very cute, and the Girl look´s also ok, maybe her Hair could need a little bit more Detailing, but something like that is even messed up sometimes by a few so called Japanese Pro´s, so there is nothing to worry about.
Good is that you are not satisfied with the Result, real Artist´s are never satisfied with what they do, they need to progress constantly, and that is a good thing, it means that you are on the right track.
If you try to work to Anatomicaly correct, you would cross the border to another Style
Manga / Realistic...and that does not look so good at all...

Thank you for the comment :)! You are right, at least this feeling pushes me to try to improve! By the way, I like your custom figures and your blogs about your working process are very interesting!
