Angelic Belldandy Wishing by ArtyAMG Angelic Belldandy Wishing by ArtyAMG
This figure of Belldandy is submitted to the THINK PINK III CONTEST for breast cancer awareness (contest submission by 10/1/08).

CATEGORY: Artisan Crafts > Custom Dolls

********


Angelic Belldandy Wishing Atop Snowcap

Belldandy's always-positive outlook remind me that hope springs eternal. I really like the angelic serenity and essence of purity captured in this pose.

********

This Belldandy is a resin figure that I custom built and painted. It was customized from a garage kit (GK). The modifications/build, assembly and paint work took over 100 hours, over a span of nine months.

The figure is 1/12-scale, measuring 6.0 inches tall (15.2 cm), excluding the snowcap mountain base. Her face is about the size of pinky fingernail. For a sense of the tiny scale, please see Making of Angelic Belldandy.

She is entirely hand-brushed by me. :D

The following list shows significant modifications I made to the basic GK:
- This Belldandy's wings were donated to another figure I made: Custom Urd Figure, Pose 3
- Extensive putty work on the existing hair pieces.
- Added hair strands and the bangs.
- Modified her back.
- Modified the mountain base, so that it is jagged on all sides.

********

For those who do not recognize the character, she is Belldandy, the Goddess of Present, from the manga/anime Ah! My Goddess (character copyright: Kousuke Fujishima).

********

On 8/28/2008, this deviation was submitted to ~tammy-angela's HOPE CONTEST. I wish tammy-angela and her family courage, hope and luck. :heart:

Did you use acrylic paint?
Reply
:iconartyamg:
ArtyAMG Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2010
For this one, I did. In other figures, I also used enamel paints where a good color foundation was needed.

:iconcottanime:
CotTanime Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2010
I see.... So, are the enamel paints the better quality than acrylic paints?
Reply
:iconartyamg:
ArtyAMG Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2010
For me, they are for diff purposes. Enamel is solvent based; acrylic is water based paint.
