Wanted to make this figure for the longest time, but could never find a suitable base. Considered many female figures for the part but wasn't until seeing the CS SuperWoman figure that finally getting the Black Queen done seemed possible!
The hair was sculpted with apoxie, and used a toothpick to do the detailing. It was painted black, then copper, then dry-brushed a reddish brown (more red than brown) on top. Her corset was from a Cynder figure, and the cape borrowed from a JLA Superman. Flesh tones were mixed with red/yellow/white/brown acrylic until the desired color and painted with a generous amount of water, creating a smooth, even application. The brush should not be so saturated with water that the paint becomes uncontrollable, and should be applied in tiny circles as to give it a polished finish. By dabbling a little bit of water over the wet surface color also helps blend & conceal the brush strokes. The rose on her collar was made by creating an "s" shape with apoxie, then twisting it into a tiny circle to resemble a rose - detailing was done with a pin. Her choker was made from vinyl and toothpick tips were glued on, painted silver to resemble spikes. Found the whip in a fodder box to complete the look.
Cheers to everybody for their continued interest and over generous praise. Will definitely continue to produce original works purely for entertainment and much amusement. Hope you'll visit again soon!
