AVP She-Wolf

Please share

My work here is largely influenced by a lot of the predator sculptors and illustrators. The base, Hot Toys Machiko, was bought years ago when it was first released. I always have a wish to transform it into a real female predator figure. The project did not start until I found this resin bad … predator head. I have put in a number of designs to make every parts fit well together. The work in progress section explains the details. Overall speaking, I am happy with how the figure turns out. It matches my impression of a female predator which is lethal, wild but still feminine.

Body Transformation

A concept sketch before the work begins

OE Reborn body was used to give a taller body proportion. The soft rubber chest was replaced with Cool Girl’s as the big chest does not fit well into the armor and also the soft rubber is hard to be painted. Muscle texture was sculpted with epoxy putty and sculpey. The paint used was acrylics. All paint work was done by hand brush (no airbrush). A thin layer of semi-gloss clear was applied at the end.
