this is a commissioned custom figure i was asked to do of shadow weaver from she-ra.
i was basically asked to make her so as she would fit in with the motuc range of figures.
she was created using a dc infinite crisis donna troy figure as a base.
i started off by sculpting her skirt, belt & head using super sculpey.
i attached a transparent base to the bottom of her skirt so when she stands she appears to be floating. this base is removable.
when the supersculpey was set i then created her cape using a product called makins clay. i really like using makins clay for capes etc because when it is dry it still has some movement to it.
the next step was to paint her using humbrol enamel paints. i decided to go for her classic filmation colours which consist of pink costume & red belt with horde logo.
i then gave her a coat of matt varnish for extra protection.
i finished her off by adding a layer of glow in the dark paint over her yellow eyes so when it is dark her eyes glow.
