I’ve had this version of Revy for a while now, but it’s only recently that I actually took her out of the packaging. I originally ordered her with the full intention to sell. Seeing as polystone figures seem to be expensive and all, I thought that I could make a small amount from it (like $20 or something). Turns out, that demand for her at the time wasn’t very high. I don’t know if it still is that low, but regardless, I decided to keep her. She’s now on display, but at a sacrifice of putting two other figures away in order to make the space.
I hope you like my new photoshop image. I’m not going to talk too much about how I did it, because it’s really no different than my other posts. The only real difference for this one though, are the shadows. I painted them on myself. I couldn’t use the shadows on the original because they were on a checkered tile, so I could only use the original image as a reference for creating a new shadow. It was difficult to try and get it to look convincing, but overall, it’s not too bad, I suppose.
The face is fairly well painted. None of it are decals like typical PVC figures. These are painstakenly painted on using a brush. I do wish that the expression on her wasn’t so… casual. The cigarette is a metal piece that you poke into her mouth. It looks terrible without it, so it’s not an optional piece of accessory.
Very nicely sculpted tattoo. (what do you think I’m talking about?!) It’s actually engraved in her rather than simply painted or decaled on. While decaling it on would be more believable, engraving it on actually gives depth to it, and makes it quite cool. She looks so Lara Croft without it. 🙂
The attention to detail is very nice. To know that they are using a pretty hard material (as I said before, PVC is much softer) it’s pretty incredible that they were able to do this with polystone.
I know it’s just a gun, but the detail is good. I like this shot anyway.
The sculpt on her hands are quite well done, the details on the boots are good too. The laces are bendable metal that go into holes in the boots (which are protected by metal rings of sorts)
Well, that’s about it. In case you’re wondering, this was the original lighting and background I used for the photoshopped photo.
As always, there are more photos in my gallery http://www.radiantdreamer.net
Until next time!
