Sun Wukong WIP

Postby Dark Angel » Mon Aug 07, 2017 7:41 pm

Sun Wukong has always appealed to me, in pretty much any form from stories, movies, or games. But the one I fell in love with first was the Sun Wukong from Warriors Orochi. So I decided to make my own! This is my first "character" doll. I hope I can do him justice.

The first task was looking for the right sculpt. I considered Impldoll Tank for a long time but something wasn't quite right. Then I found Mirodoll's Apollo and thought that his face looked almost perfect. (And so was the price :lol: )

So I ordered him with a custom faceup from Mirodoll since I'm not very good at faceups. I had purchased a clearanced Mirodoll 60cm body because there was a hole in his knee (on the inside) that they had filled. So I already have a body for him.

After waiting about 3 months, they sent me an email saying that my order was ready and that they would ship him on Monday. (today) They haven't sent an email saying that they've done that, but... maybe they did. Anyway, on to some pictures.

The body:

I restrung him and hot glue sueded him for better posing and now he poses like a dream.

And then I made a tail:
Image

I put a wire inside of it that's wrapped with some bubblewrap stuff. The kind that's like a sheet. I don't know how to explain it. :lol: Then I shoved it in the sewn tail and then hot glued a magnet inside. Next was the magnet on his lower back.

It shows a bit if you look at it from the side, but it's not too bad. Besides, he'll probably be wearing pants/shirt that will cover it.

Fully posable tail:

And here's the picture that Mirodoll sent me with his faceup:

More to come as I -slowly- work on it.
Still needed:
-Wig
-Eyes
-Clothes
-Headband
-Staff

He has shipped and he is here!

Image
Image

They sent him with yellow eyes like the reference photos, which was super nice! But I've ordered different ones already. I want his eyes to GLOW. (not literally)

And on his body:

Image

The image got distorted when I cropped it. (I had to hide my messy desk! lol)

I think I'll try to do his wig next but this project might be slow going since I have to watch a puppy 24/7 or work. I try to sneak things in while he's sleeping.

Starting making his "wig".

Added some fur to his tail, too.

Still need to add some lower, on to the back of his neck and then style it. But he's coming along, slowly by surely!
