Comentarios GK - Tohsaka Rin as Kaleido Ruby

  • Hatchuuhace 8 años#1030458Good job for a hand-done GK, and 1/6 at that! Eyes can be the most challenging, but they look great here! I do have to recommend thinning out your paints, however - it makes a huge difference in the end, but it does take a while longer and quite a few layers; which is one of the downfalls of handpainting. But handpainting in the beggining is great practice and experience for when you have to handpaint certain parts on later works :3 It depends on your technique, but I thin my paints down to a milky consistency with some clear water, some people use window cleaner or similar. I'm excited to see how your Marisa comes out next!

    As mentioned below, really thin paint also made "streaks" on my model. So...eh...have any tips for that? ^-^

    And the eyes were pretty big, so I had a great chance to practice painting eyes! :D

    Hatsuma24hace 8 años#1023137http://i918.photobucket.com/albums/ad27/LuciferOniichan/izumi_konata.pngNo bad for brushing by hand. Though up close you can see the stroke marks on her face. Ever considered getting an airbrush system? That figure would look nice with some tones.

    Yes, I have considered an airbrush mutliple times. I wanted to buy one together with the friend I paint with, but we still haven't found the right one (we don't mind paying a lot of money if the airbursh is really good). Do you have any recommendations?

    EllisNice job! She looks great~!

    Thank you!

    eefiThe paint still looks rough at the end. But I can understand why. Never prime skin color parts black. You'll need thick paint to overpaint black and even then her skin color is slightly too dark. I know handbrushing is a lot harder (at least getting everything smooth) than painting with an airbrush but I know people who do it exceptionally well, so yeah it is possible. The key is patience and very very thinned paint.

    The problem I had with thinned paint was because of the black undercoat. For my earlier GK's I thinned the paint a lot (those were completely white undercoated), but that was only possible here at the white parts. I DO think that the black undercoadt made the red and gold stand out more. Anyways, for my next GK, I'm thinking to make everything white again (maybe except Marisa's skirt).

    Hatsuma24It is exceptionally hard when brushing by hand and you're right, it takes alot of patience. >_<;

    I also realized that neither sanding or putty was used in the process.


    Well, I used both of them (notice the green parts put in the holes?) and I have used special resin files, but she was VERY hard. Her cast had a lot of holes, mainly in the coat/dress, but I tried to make the best of it. :/

    SazakoNice Job, Great to see your step by step process for painting her.

    Did you just glue the pieces together?


    Thank you! And yes, I simple glued the pieces together with some glue. I forgot the name of it...but it is that special glue you have to keep in your refrigerator from the brand Pritt.

    FauxtoolVery nice step by step. I have painted 40k but now I want to try a GK. I would definitely thin those paints to at least a milk consistency, I can see a lot of brush marks. I like the colors you picked and the skin tone looks great.
    As long as you are happy its fine.

    Where do you guys like to buy your GKs from? Im in the US if that matters.

    Im also curious as to what kind of glue you use for resin and if you pinned the models


    Yes, I also thinned the paint a lot, but the black undercoat screwed eveyrhting up as you can read in one of my comments above :P

    This GK I have bought second hand and unused from a hobbyist that decided to stop (I bought about 7 GK's from her). She originally bought them from E2046, but I wouldn't recommend buying from them, they make recasts and sometimes their molds really don't fit well. Also won't recommened HomeMedia4U where I bought my first GK. My second GK was a present from a friend that went to Hong Kong...also wouldn't recommend that. If I were you and you want a REALLY good GK, buy an original from Mandarake for example.

    As stated earlier before I forgot the name, but it was special glue in a small flask from the brand Pritt, it had to be kept in the refrigerator.

    itsame00Doing a GK by HAND?! IMPOSSIBRU!! Still, pretty good job there. Never done a GK myself so I don't really know how hard it is.

    AND that floating eyeless Rin scared the shit outta me! D:


    It IS possible, but it won't be perfect, it will look like this! ;)

    Yes, it also scares me. The first time I made a picture and looked back on it, I was all like: D:

    MuntoeGood job starting out! There are still a lot of things you could have done which is why this kit turned out so rough in the end...never try to skip the process of sanding or puttying, it really does help achieve a smoother texture in the end. That paint is also way too thick and unfortunately that leads to streaking (doesn't help you had to cover up black primer...). Water it down with water or Windex and you're good to go, it's a lot easier once you get the hang of it :) I think everyone else touched on the improvements (primer, etc.) but I'm also wondering if you pinned your kit? Just gluing it really isn't stable, eventually if it falls over >_<

    I really love the colors you've chosen though, they are perfect for the character! I'd like to see more someday :)


    I didn't skip the progress, only made a few pictures of it! TT^TT Anyways, it was really hard with this cast to make certain parts look good (that damned jacket).

    With me, very thin paint also leads to straking. Or am I the only one with that?

    I pinned only her foot into the base, as you can see in the last few pictures. Everything else was glued. With my ealier GK's it worked pretty well with just gluing, so should I be afraid now that my older GK's can be in multiple parts when I arrive home? D:

    And thank you~! I really thought these colours would be more fitting for this figure! :) And I plan to make an Marisa-GK in half a year, so then I will make another article like this. :)
