----------THIS IS A WIP----------
Edit: actually looking at this picture it looks much different in person. The photo (probably because of our crappy camera), only seems to show the larger skin ...blobs? The skin is much more detailed but you can only really see the bigger bumps which makes it look less appealing. She looks much better in person, I swear! Only seeing big bumps really is a bummer. You can see some medium ones, but I spent hours with a sewing needles making TINY bumps to make the texture better, and those are the ones you can't see at all. Big and some mediums are visible.
More progress on my Otachi Costume which has to be done by the start of April.
Did work on her skin. Otachi isn't necessarily black all around, she is some times shown as such, but other times a sort of dark steel-blue-grey-black...I dunno, but I do what I can and black is what I can do, I do not have the materials to start dying my own fabrics and all that jazz. I feel black is a fairly accurate representation of her and the dark will help her LEDs stand out even more. As I am making the costume I DO have some artistic liberty and I'd hope to not get bashed for making her purely black. -I'm working VERY hard on hand painting on scales to the fabric I'll be using for her. Each scale is individually painted on just like on her face. Each one done by hand with either help of a pencil or a sewing needle depending on the size of the scale-
The teeth are no where near done, I just slapped some lighter coloured paint on there so one could see where the teeth are. Otachi doesn't have white teeth by a long shot, lol.
She does have the nose horns but they are just a base right now in white styrofoam you can't see in the image. I have her LEDs for the horns wired up, I just need to attach them and build up the final horn shape. That will be next on the list.
This was originally a round nose dragon blank from DVC that I obviously HEAVILY edited. Tounge and LED eyes (painted by me) also from DVC.
