Neko Galaxy bust with a small conversion. Was watching a lot of Deadly Class on Netflix when she arrived in the mail. Inspired by that hispanic character...saw a sci-fi teenage assassin who got her jolly's off from loud noises, explosions and guns. Finished just in time for the holiday..a little rushed to make it but made it lol :)
This was a challenge and Im more or less chalking it up as an overall failure. Really happy with how a lot of the individual elements came out but holistically, it highlights my struggles with color composition. Maybe just over thinking it but still, nothing about it came natural which is frustrating. C&C welcome and desired, anything to improve. Happy Dia De Los Muertos!

      Thanks. I don’t think it sells as much of the Day of the Dead as I’d like but its a great model so that was motivation enough.

  • Andrew Schaffert

    This is beautiful. Gold for you!

    Haven’t seen any episode of “Deadly Class” but I can imagine her running haphazardly from one explosion to another bang. Really gorgeous piece of work!!!

    • Steve GarciaPLUS

      Haha! You should, its a pretty good show. Potential to be “teeny bopper” but just skirts it enough to be enjoyable.

    Awesome, love it! Gold

    The metallic reflections are great !!

    • Steve GarciaPLUS

      Thanks Bran. Fun stuff….at this scale though there was no evening goal of “Ill finish the armor” lol

    Gold work!!

    The metal work is very nicely done.

      Thanks man. Im more or less happy with how they came out. You could probably go all day with TONS of nuances. Bringing it all together was the fail. A lot of successful individual elements but in its entirely, its not what I was hoping it’d be.

    Hi Steve, I have read your description and comments below. I believe you are way too hard on yourself. The piece is great even if you see potential for improvements. No project turns out the way you hope but it most of the times allows you to move forward. I find the piece beautiful ❤️ Congrats! I look forward to seeing you implement your analysis in your next piece! Best, Alex
