Rendition of Misato as her cool self in the movie The End of Evangelion, one of my favorite. I took many in progress shots this time and used them in my tutorial.
[The rest of this Introduction contains spoilers to the movie]

This is a good kit EXCEPT on the fit department. The left hand/vest/body connection is just horrible, didn’t fit at all. There’s a very wide gap between her left chest and arm that couldn’t be fixed by heating alone. There’s also a wide gap between the left leg and body. I should have fixed the fit problems before painting, but I only patched up the gap in the leg, which led to a lot of work later on.
|BuildingI chose to use navy blue as the base color of her body suit and coated with an interference blue/clear dark purple mixture. I had painted a few too many Misatos to stay with that blackish body suit scheme. There were the Realize version, Kurushima version and Kotobukiya version. How do you like this version? The rest of the build up is detailed in the tutorial so I won’t repeat here. I had so many disasters this time, probably because I was distracted by the constant need to photograph stuff.|
