Next to Charlotte, Sylvie's my favorite character from the visual novel turned anime, Princess Lover. Most people say that she's a rip-off of Saber from Fate Stay Night; but I digress. Sylvie's a character on her own and I want to try capturing her charm and elegance in this wonderful 1/7 scale garage kit.
More info for the curious:
Shiny armor! After successfully completing the 1/8 garage kit of Celia Cumani Aintree, I can say I'm confiden enough to handle chrome spray paints and apply them to my kits :)
Fine gold details and linings are hand-painted using Tamiya gold enamel paint.
I decided to color the pants somewhat "smoke"-ish; just mixed some black with red brown.
Hand painting the emblem and the gold lining is always a pain. What you see is as steady as my hands could be.
This eye's better than the last one I made. Hopefully I'll fully get the hold of it and paint eyes in the future perfectly.
Chrome plated legs
Just missing the head...
... and done
Finally done with her! I didn't redesigned the base for now since my original idea didn't go well :( Thanks for looking! More pics in the gallery!
