Nonscale Zuzu (Mega-chan) - Megatrea Shop Mascot

Happy 2017 everyone! This year my goal is to finish at least three (YES THREE!) garage kits. This figure is named Mega-chan  and she as well as her friend (familiar? who knows) Tenchou are mascots from Megatrea Shop, a popular store in Japan with close ties to the figure company Megahouse. I  bought this kit off of Mandarake years ago (maybe 2011ish?) because she was adorable but didn't have inspiration to paint her until recently.

Nonscale Fairy - Original Character

Hi everyone! :) Long time no post. Today I’d like to share my 12th finished work.

This little Fairy is by Meikyuu no Koe. Unfortunately this kit is extremely rare and I don’t even know if this circle sculpts anymore (most of her kits were made 2011-2012) so my copy is a recast. However, I hope that my paintjob shows how beautiful her sculpt is – this is truly one of my favorite kits in my collection and it took me a long time to build up the courage to paint her.

When I think of fairies I usually think of pale, pastel creatures and that’s how I was initially planning to paint this little gal. However, I always like to challenge myself when building kits and paint something that looks completely different from other artists’ work. I decided to settle on a fairy that represents a sunset.

If you haven't done so already please take a look at my Facebook page! I update it more regularly than here, this blog has become more of a place to keep a catalog of my finished works. Plum Workshop

Nonscale Little Bride - Original Character

Good morning/afternoon/evening everyone!

Although it is no longer Halloween I hope everyone had a safe and spooky time. I didn't end up doing that much since I wanted to see if we received any trick-or-treaters but it was an abysmal failure since only 3 showed up. I also left the candy bowl outside in case anyone stopped by and some kid stole the entire candy bowl so that was disappointing lol...anyway I managed to finish this kit last night but there were quite a few people who finished kits on Halloween so I decided to hold off on posting. Photo editing also took me a while >_<

Oh also I would like to announce that I finally created a Facebook page for my work. When I'm working on kits I will be posting more WIP photos on there since it's easier so if you enjoy looking at my work I would really appreciate a like on the page. Thank you so much. Here is the link to my Facebook.
