Lady Oscar Kitbash Rose of Versailles
It’s been a hell of a 3 week pain for me since my car accident, fortunately everything is back to normal as of today 😀 school is almost over, by the end of this month I will have more time to work on my little hobby than what I have now, and so my little adventure of gk modeling will continue.
I’m very Excited because I have a lot of kits to work on! and have more that I want to order xD but I’m fine with the ones I got right, I’m pretty sure my next purchase will be Poison from Street Fighter, my boyfriend loves this model and I’m planning to use Lacquer paints for the first time to paint her, I’m practicing as much as I can on my shadings and techniques, I want Poison to look like like it was painted by a pro LOL so since I’m kinda of a perfectionist and so is my boyfriend, I want to paint her when I feel my skills get even better, this of course will be painted specially for him after all 🙂
After I paint poison, I believe I will take the next step and do my first kitbash, for those of you that don’t know what a kitbash is, basically you take a GK or 2 and convert it to a new character, either modifying the single kit or taking parts from 2 different kits to make a new one, my first kitbash will be for Lady Oscar from the Rose of Versailles, it’s a very old anime from back in the 80’s or late 70’s, when I saw this series, I fell in love with Oscar and her story, I recommend you see it, it’s just a 50 episode long series, but it’s worth every episode, you can read a good review here from Anime Planet, and all the episodes are on youtube. Anyways, there are absolutely no GK’s of Oscar, so I plan to convert a specific kit that has a very dynamic pose and sculp to actually make her look like her, I was amazed at the similarity of the GK that will be used to Oscar, so here’s a little pic to get a better Idea of what I’m going to do.
It’s not gonna be that hard to modify the original kit to make Oscar, so I’m very anxious to try this LOL.
And last but not least, I won’t be updating my Dante WIP, I’m going to add him to E2046’s summer contest, one of the rules is that no pictures can be posted anywhere online if they find them I get disqualified 😦 so…. sorry guys I’m almost done with him by the way, he’s turning out very dashing 😀 I love how he’s turning out ❤
