Resumed my work on the HGUC GP02!!! But due to my eagerness I broke something….but nevertheless the building must go on!!
I am going to attempt to do some shading this time on the GP02. This is more of an experiment so if it doesn’t turn out well I’ll modify it. I’ll be using the black gundam marker for the blue and red parts, the grey marker for the whitish gray parts. Both these markers are oil based.
I already panel lined the area. I’ll attempt some sort of shading on the bare plastic. Note I did not do any flat coat.
I use the gray gundam marker and outline the edges. Smudging them as i go along.
After that I take a tissue paper and gently rub over the surface. Notice the slight grayish tone.
Hmm what you guys think of this ? Somehow this needs improving in my opinion!
But I love how the black works on the red. On the blue somehow it did not turned out as good.
Tried to give the edges of that blue part a bit of black..but some how I did not turned out as I expected..
And while playing the shield… the hand peg broke argh!!! Damn hard abs plastic!!! So brittle! Well looks like the left hand will be holding the shield permanently once I glue this part!
Putting it all together ^^
But despite the not so good attempt at shading, the GP02 is still menancing as ever…Gato is one lucky guy to have ever piloted such an awesome looking mobile suit.
Who needs a beam saber when you have a nuke on your shoulder 😀
Well that is all for the night 😀 Now I only left the weathering on the other half and then followed by dry brushing after the flat coat during the weekend! Hopefully I can cover my the mistakes i made!!
Till the next post!
