My Female Action Figure WIP
Posted in Custom Workstation
I wanted to make my own original character for my comic book I'm working on. Her name is Sathena. So, now, I want to create a female character that stands at least under 8" inches tall, no taller than that. She stands a little under 7" inches tall. In the story, I actually want her to be a little taller than my main character, so 7" inch tall works for me.
The parts were varied, because I want to try using different parts to see which would work best. The last picture at the bottom, which is my most recent picture, has white body parts casted from Tamina Snuka. I used Snuka clone's torso with hips and calves. That's it.
HEAD-Amazing Spiderman Wal-Mart action figure. Covered Spidey's head with Aves Apoxie Sculpt, then "shaved" it down with a dremel. I think this is the dumbest idea I've ever come up with. It would be easier to just use clay to sculpt her tiny face.
SHOULDERS-Sort of a miniature Barbie doll. Barbies have very feminine shoulders, so I thought, "Perfect!" I used it on Sathena.
ARMS-Marvel Universe Dagger's knees and thighs for Sathena's biceps and elbows.
TORSO-Casted part of WWE Tamina Snuka's chest with Smooth-On cast.
HIPS-Casted part of WWE Tamina Snuka's hips with Smooth-On.
THIGHS-These thighs are from Jakks Pacific's UFC fighter Rashad Evans figure. I thought I didn't have to shave it down with a dremel, because women generally have wider hips. Boy, was I wrong... Thighs needed a lot of sanding down. Then I covered it with Apoxie Sculpt, then shaved it down with a dremel again. The legs have to be as thin as possible.
KNEES-Made with cheap "G.I.-Joe-Wannabe" The Corps figure's elbows. I used those articulations, because Barbie dolls have very nice knee articulation, so I had to find a smaller one with similar articulation. I found the Corps's elbows for that. No need to have swivel seams across her thighs when it comes to already having the swivel in her knees along with the hinge.
CALVES-The bigger white parts at the top of her calves are casted parts of Tamina Snuka's calves. Then the bottom white parts are made from Dagger's calves.
FEET-Marvel Universe Hercules feet.
She has tiny joints, which are perfect for my character, because I want Sathena to have small joints to appear as feminine as possible. Bigger joints are okay, but they're a little too pronounced and they tend to make her look like a burly, superheroic woman. Sathena is simply a damsel in distress character.
Noticed the fourth picture with her huge boobs? lol. I had to shave her boobs down to a smaller size. Her boobs now are better.
These are the images taken in order.
I only posted these pictures to have proof that I've been working on my project. It took me TWO WEEKS to make this! I think it's because I'm new to customizing a figure, so it took me a while to learn all the mistakes.
Besides her balloon head, what do you think of her body? Look good?
I will post newer pictures as soon as I get the Logitech Pro 9000 shipped to my home. It should be by next week.
