Little Minion: My Little Red Devil

on September 8, 2010 - 1:07pm

I let myself keep one or two figures from a series. I'm pretty good at sticking to this rule. So good, in fact, that sometimes I forget that I'm allowed to keep them.

I hummed and hawed over this little red devil for a long time. When I was making him, he seemed like a neat little character but nothing too extraordinary. But each time I passed him, it was like he was intently grinning at me. And I would involuntarily grin back, unable to help myself.

A few days before the convention, my mind was settled. I could not live without him. And so, he is now a permanent member of my private collection.

I also think it's a good idea to keep a piece where I achieved something...maybe it's a pose, or the bend of a body, or the fold of a cloak, or the texture of a paint finish.

While photographs are a great learning tool and I've often used them as a reference, having the actual figure in front of you is better. Do I think he's the perfect example of effects I'm going for? No, but he's the closest I've come so far. At least for my personal taste.

And I really liked the combination of colours. I've started another horned figure using the same colour scheme but he has a drastically different facial expression and feel to him.

I'm glad I decided to adopt him.
