This figure was based on original artwork done by a fellow's wife. As you can see in the WIP shot, she's quite talented with digital illustration.

'Requested' as a Christmas gift, "Jill Frost" is a superhero that looks like a cross between Iceman and Emma Frost (no relation, apparently).

I don't typically take requests for 3.75" scale figures, but decided to take this project on as I was already working on an upcoming series of Zombie Apocalypse GI JOE scale figures, and I really liked the design of this character.

Recipe:
-Marvel Universe Spider-Woman (from Secret Wars 2-pack)
-High-heeled boots, cast by "Raginspoon's Custom Cast Parts and Figures"
-Female Headcast from a random seller online
-Lightening Effects from MU Storm (repainted, trimmed into clip-on 'ice' effects)
-Large Ice Blast (made from styrene + a MU Iron Man vortex blast for the handle)
-Paper clips (carefully bent, and superglued into drilled out holes in the boots - then resculpted over with Aves for the 'ice skates'
-Cast Warhammer 9" Ice Base, resculpted/repainted. Carved out new cracks, and made 2 indentations so the figure could stand properly, while wearing skates.

The rest is Kneadite (Citadel 'Green Stuff') + Aves Apoxie Sculpt (Gray).

Painted with Mr. Hobby Super Metallic Chrome & Gunmetal (Lacquer paint), black/blondes/eyes done with Vallejo Acrylics, and sealed with Mr. Spray Super Clear Matte finish.

Hope you like the pics.

Nice. I hear Green Stuff is really good for fine detail. I notice you use it a lot on your works.

@ G Brand: green stuff is pretty forgiving, as you can push and prod it around int thinner pieces, and it won't soak up the water used to smooth it like Aves apoxie does. That allows for smaller, finer pieces with more overhang, Its slight flexability is also useful in area where the base (I.e: bendy MU plastic) could have Aves rock- hardness crack with excessive play.

It just depends on how you sculpt. Green stuff is pretty horrible to sand, but aves sands down wonderfully - so I use each compound to their strengths, . Thanks for the comment man.
