upd. Due to Imageshack having trouble loading so much pics at once I resized and uploaded final pics to MFC. WIP's still on Imageshack, forgive me but there's just too much material ._.

Hello MFC!

It's been a long time since I updated stuff but now I'm here with something BIG.

Throughout May I've been building a great figure for a contest at the site-I-cannot-mention-here. Them being recasters, it's still the biggest international contest for garage kit finishers so participating has been one of my yearly goals for 3 years straight.

This year I've been lucky to get my hands on Rei Ayanami by Volks, a massive, entrancing and incredibly detailed kit. I painted this for my friend and truly this has been a work of pure inspiration.

I'll put WIP pics under spoiler for those interested. Many, many pictures. 120 hours of work total, from tab removing to finishing touches. Mind you, this is VERY, VERY picture heavy.

First pics when I got the kit back in December. It's 2.5 kg of resin, serious deal!

Next were some experiments with new paints I ordered specially for Rei, to find a combo that will add a new dimension to her purple armor.

Sanding took much longer than I wanted. Also had to do serious pinning to make this baby stand all on her own. Parts did fit well but the weight at 1/4 is a serious issue. So all her bigger parts feature 1-3 sturdy pins.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/924/fl7zqX.jpg
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/923/BVmH3S.jpg

Had to use these to cut the 3 mm pins that I inserted in her legs and arms.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/923/sS1j1L.jpg

As I hate using different color putty I did a small experiment with adding paint to Gaia putty - all to fix some gaps on the stone base. Then used rough sandpaper to add texture to puttied area. Worked nice!

After many hours of hard work Rei could stand on her own! Had to heat-bend some parts, too.

Longinus was rather warped so I straightened it. Also it proved a perfect cat toy.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/921/jR5As5.jpg
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/923/vbKL9g.jpg
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/921/iyKvL4.jpg
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/924/JOfbFh.jpg

Then it was time for a degreasing bath.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/921/lVpUrg.jpg

Cat QA inspecting the parts after degreasing.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/923/4m7YV2.jpg

I drilled holes in EVA's head to insert LEDs.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/921/0J6gAA.jpg

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/921/iw52r1.jpg

Next I took on the eye challenge. Rei's eyes are a separate part that fits into a hollow head. Figuring out the direction of her look without making her look odd or cross-eyed proved to be very tedious. After one failed attempt I tried to remember what few I learned from anatomy classes at art school. This actually worked.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/924/LNEfpT.jpg
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/923/e4nodQ.jpg
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/923/6QFYlf.jpg
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/922/ikITrV.jpg

Next I painted her irises on that weird titty-like part, layering Tamiya enamel paints that allow easy correction if necessary.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/922/eVvK3G.jpg
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/922/z87P4i.jpg

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/923/tNaHc2.jpg
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/921/Y5y5bO.jpg

Also painted wires on the inside of her flesh-armor parts. It took much, much longer than I expected... at this point I realized that painting process won't be quick and easy like I planned.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/923/Jw5ddK.jpg
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/921/zXHRqQ.jpg

Skintone is my favourite part. I used a combo of Gaianotes white flesh (base colour) and Gaianotes Surfacerless Flesh Pink diluted with some Gaia Clear (shadings). I was going for porcelain-like, anime look that wouldn't make her too BJD-like or too realistic. This simple combo worked like a miracle!

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/922/wjAq1w.jpg

Useful note for those working with clear resin — most times it's somewhat fogged but a nice wet layer of clear varnish will make resin very translucent and will work as primer, too.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/923/lZJhKf.jpg
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/923/YbpWeI.jpg
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/924/L6TQKP.jpg

I painted hair with semi-clear mix of Gaia clear white, ultimate white, clear purple and clear blue. I had to hide some connection points as well as yellow tone clear resin of this kit had. On top of it I added a pearl layer of Mr Crystal Color Sapphire Blue for a nice sheen after matte coating but it's not really visible on pics..

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/924/WoS9mS.jpg
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/922/BB5R4D.jpg

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/923/caJOcd.jpg
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/924/WcIC0V.jpg

Building color on armour parts, I think I used 4 paints total to achieve that effect. Also almost repainted a couple of parts later when I found some infused lint and pinholes but no pics of my shame.. >.<

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/922/nJ8L8b.jpg

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/921/tP9g7P.jpg

Between layers I finished hair (or at least I thought so) and some smaller parts for further detailing.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/921/DapHYz.jpg
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/923/mhdjW4.jpg

Pre-shading and base colour on her body. Purple pre-shade and white with sapphire blue pearl worked amazing. With these parts I understood why clear coats are not so easy.. You airbrush one side and it fogs the other side...

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/923/mOlLe5.jpg
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/923/Hpiaza.jpg

Looking at results I was rather satisfied.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/923/UCXM3X.jpg

Next step was gore detailing. I started with a dark purple wash of Tamiya enamel, so that I could wipe the excess later..

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/922/Fn87tH.jpg
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/921/Z7vNs4.jpg

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/923/NNmwcX.jpg
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/921/TYdknA.jpg

Next step was deepen the gore so I took out a set of oils I had. Damn, these are sublime. They dissolve in water but behave just like your regular oils. Including intense, amazing pigment.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/921/JZ6p5J.jpg

These are so vibrant, an effect I was hoping for. But oils mean a 2-week drying time since I used most the slowest-drying one, permanent alizarin crimson. But it was just so worth the wait!

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/922/KhI5SY.jpg

Amazing, right? Usual acrylics would never give an effect like that!

Also painted the flames with all yellows and oranges I had.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/923/oYG9FI.jpg

Next step was the most intense. Legs and body required A LOT of tedious masking. Many, many small triangles later..

Worth mentioning is the fact that canon DSLR is a nice part holder...

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/924/rqR5yh.jpg

Between masking I painted some other parts, including the base.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/921/lwTDyQ.jpg
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/924/E6H3kt.jpg

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/922/fdnpJs.jpg
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/922/iQjXUc.jpg

Painted the face with enamels, too.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/923/MD9inf.jpg
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/922/nRvNYB.jpg
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/922/rUN5yn.jpg

After a matte coat.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/921/GjDadk.jpg

Perfect unmasking on her left arm. Purple worked amazing as a base, gave the black a whole new dimension!

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/921/bNErI8.jpg

The pile of finished parts grows bigger as the deadline approaches.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/921/JxHvlY.jpg

Base. Drybrushed it with various colours to imitate flame highlights.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/921/RS1NNo.jpg
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/924/0GI2ea.jpg
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/xq90/921/2OM8wu.jpg

Then it was time for experiments. I wanted it to be drowned in LCL, with a NERV insignia added.

Rei needed eyelashes so I added some. Tedious process but so worth the results!

Here she is, in all her glory. Forgive me the spotty background, it's been a very tight deadline so I had to bring her to work early in the morning to post my contest entry on time. There will be great pictures by my friend sometime soon that will truly do justice to my humble painting skills :3

Phew, this was long. Feel free to ask how I did stuff here and there.

I hope you like my Rei as much I do!

sasa (1 год назад) #38757925Ah ok, thank you for confirming that. I've read some descriptions saying that it was pre-painted so I wasn't sure.
As far as I know Volks did release a pre-painted version a long time ago and also a bootleg pre-painted version exists.

ponnie (1 год назад) #38757856Since it's a garage kit, she's blanc colored resin straight out of the box. To look like promo pics a lot of prep work and paint work is required.

sasa (1 год назад) #38757261Thank you, but is that how it looks straight out of the box, or is there some painting required? I've seen some picture with some blank parts so I don't want to risk it.

sasa (1 год назад) #38756262First of all this looks absolutely stunning, so congratulations on your hard work. I was looking for this kit in Yahoo Auctions and found a one new. But my issue is that a lot of the pictures you see on MFC of this figure are custom jobs. So I'm just wondering what is the default look of this figure? I want to know how it looks without all the extra custom details. Do you have any picture of that by any chance?
