From the Desk: Forsaken Conversion, part 4

My new drill bits arrived and I wrapped up the assembly. The drill bits I got were not so great. Note to others: Make sure when you order bits online that they are rated for metal, otherwise you'll be drilling for a long time. However, no point whining about it now. I pinned everything together and did some minor greenstuff work. There's definitely some additional GS work that I'd like to do, but I need everything to set properly before I do anything further.

I snapped 3 pictures to give an idea of what it looks like from different angles. There's definitely some oddness to the proportions. There are really only 2 options to deal it: either resculpt it somehow, or paint cleverly. Since my skills are stronger on the painting side, I'm going to purposefully not try to adjust the proportions and see if I can use color to affect the appearance of the proportions.

The next step is to prime and paint, which may take a while for me to get to. However I will definitely post an update as I make progress.

I am loving that conversion. Much better than the stock model, that's for sure. Can't wait to see what else you've got in store with this crazy lady.

This is looking great. I don't think there is any problem with the proportions--it's a forsaken. They're supposed to be a little wonky. :)
