Hello mfc!

I'm back with a new custom figure!


The character is Saki Mizushima from Idolmaster SideM (ENTRY #88147).
Today happens to be his birthday so I finished the figure right on time haha
Happy birthday Saki!!

His eye color is more accurate in real life than on the photos btw

I think I improved on the smoothness of the figure compared to my previous ones?
But I really need to work on being more accurate to the character ^^"

This is the only figure I made this time because I was away from home for three weeks and I also had (and still have to) buy more material and stuff for my next figures so that slowed me down a bit.

One of the things I got is a new clay (that I haven't tried out yet) and a book (ITEM #111439), wich was recommended to me by fellow mfc member naisor (thank you!)
I don't understand japanese but there are a lot of picture so it is still very interesting. I can't wait to put these in use!

Here are some pages of the book if anyone is curious what it's like:

Act (6 meses atrás) #38933945Wow, you've improved so much!
Some advice for sculpting things like spaghetti straps: instead of building up, pare down. Make the torso slightly large, and then sculpt out details in relief from it. You should by and large be removing clay to add detailing, not adding more, unless it's something that reeeally projects out like a bow (and maybe not even then if it's delicate enough). :)


Thank you very much for the advice! I'll keep this in mind next time ^^

Klala (6 meses atrás) #38915222I'm glad to hear this, thank you ^^ I plan to keep going for a long time!:D
Just asking out of curiosity, but do you think you'll ever post something about your own custom projects? It's always interesting to see other people's work!


Hmm, I wasn't going to do an article or anything until I finished what I'm working on and started my second as I haven't painted anything yet. I'm working on a custom nendoroid (which is far easier than scratch building) but unfortunately the character I'm doing is manga-only so far so I don't have the best reference, no turn around or character sheet.

The grey clay is a placeholder. Still a lot of work to be done, and I've done quite a bit more since that picture was taken. Things just take time when you're newer to them and you're problem solving XD I'm used to drawing so acclimating to sculpting is new. Maybe I should take a page out of your book and post stuff I’m working on? XD

Pinokkio (6 meses atrás) #38911547I concur with the previous post, that you have improved your painting skill. I'm the most impressed of how you sculpted the hands and the shorts. The face and facial expression are more cleaner than your last figures. How was it sculpting the hair on this figure? I find that you have done the two hairbands and ribbons nicely.
Your first figure Wriggle Nightbug is probably jealous on how good the others look like. ;P


Thanks for the comment!
Sculpting the pointy tips of the hair is a bit delicate because they break easily ^^!
When I look at my first figures I already feel like redoing them better...So Wriggle probably doesn't have to worry as I might make a new figure of her if I get better at this!

Rajke (6 meses atrás) #38908955He looks gorgeous. And i agree that each figure is getting better. His face and especially his eyes are very nice. That you have improved your skills is highly visible. Teto that you made in your last blog was also smooth sculpted. The improvement i see is not in the smoothness of your sculpting. It is in the paint job that looks more refined.
Looking forward to your next blog. :)


Thank you for the comment, I'm glad I have improved my painting!
I'm looking forward to making my next figure, too! :)

Heldrik (6 meses atrás) #38903946To quote Lord Vader: "Impressive; most impressive".
Great work on the face and the hands, especially the latter, considering they're already a pain to draw, I can only imagine how hard it is to make it three-dimensional.
You have a really good level of skills for a non-pro, congratulations, you can be proud of it.


Thank you! Getting nice comments like this makes me even more motivated to continue sculpting, I really appreciate it! :)
