Grunt MS Group Build - Purple Nemo WIP 3

Topics: 

This is a participating project in GAF's Grunt MS Group Build

 

Time to take a break from FFXIII and share some WIP shots of my purple Nemo. It's coming along quite well, though there are a few issues. One of the things I was worried about was getting the kit from green to a proper white. Several parts look good but there are two that could have used a few more coats of primer. Unfortunately I couldn't tell by looking at them during the painting stages, but now that they're together along side an appropriately painted counterpart, it's pretty obvious. Luckily they don't seem to show that evidently in my photos.

Speaking of which, I redid my diffuser set up today and things look good. Hopefully it holds together better than my previous attempt. Since both of my lights are from the front there's just enough back shadow to throw the look. I also need to get the white's set well as I'm trying to emulate the Jokster's style. Maybe more post-processing is needed.

Oh yeah, you're here for the photos right?

Still needs some work. The shoulder bits are what's holding up the arms. Tomorrow I will be ready to apply details to them. The backpack, which I fucked up some time ago, is finally at a level at which I don't care to fix. Hopefully after top coat the issues won't be so evident. I hope to apply details tomorrow.
