April O'neil (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) Custom Action Figure
She's a simple one. My strengths lie more in painting than sculpting, and this project was a simple repaint. It took me most of the week to fix my airbrush after starting on her and the nozzle getting a nasty airflow clog. I spent a week, disassembling the air brush, cleaning and reassembling and testing and repeating to find the source of the problem. I tried out some Tamiya paints I bought last year but never liked due to their weak application. Turned out that Tamiya paints require more than just a shake, but actually stirring them in the jar and then thinning them down. The good thing is that I used the flat paint and even the flat seems to cure very sturdy. More work than I like out of my paints, but the results seem to have worked out alright.
So here's April, in her cartoon colors instead of the Blue jump suit from SDCC.
