One of my Favorite JAPANIMATED Character is KEFKA..
ABOUT THE CHARACTER:
Kefka Palazzo ( Kefuka Parattso?) (spelled as Cefca Palazzo in the Japanese version) is the primary antagonist and the final boss of Final Fantasy VI. Kefka acts as Emperor Gestahl's court mage early in the game, carrying out the emperor's orders. However, behind Gestahl's back, Kefka attacks various towns and drains the espers' power meant for Imperial use. This gradual culmination in power leads Kefka to overthrow Gestahl and take control of the Warring Triad, effectively becoming the God of Magic itself
One of the Difficult Hardest custom Figure I did..
Here are the Recipe:
HEAD: SCULPTED but Gears of War character Underneath
WINGS 1: Archangel
WINGS 2:Spawn Dragon added some wing extension from Rubber Styro
WINGS 3: From an Anime Character
BODY: UFC Fighter so This KEFKA is ultimately ARTICULATED.I sanded it and repainted
HANDS: Gears of War
SKIRT or CLOTHINGS: From Dried CHAMOIS molded & Painted
STRAND:Wire wrapped and sculpted using CHAMOIS Car washing towel. It gets hard when dried. I used a hair dryer to fasten drying process
ABOUT THE PHOTO: In case you find it weird that my backyard can be seen and the art paper backgtround is partly shown.. I intentionally showed this..with the under the sunlight set-up. This is to give tip on those people who have hard time getting good pictures..Actual day light (Between 9 am to 3 pm)can really enhance the details and colors of the custom figure. No need for lights or lamps.Just a plain colored Background and Digi cam..Just make sure its daylight not full spot sunlight.
I also Showed the WIP PIX to give you tips also on how I put all together the materials and parts..Also to show the face Sculpt. This is also to share how I do my work and hope you can learn from this somehow..
