If I'm capable of it, I wanted to try a set of figures. At the least, Tron and Beck. But preferably also Able and Paige, or Mara and Zed, too - but that is rather a lot, and I haven't been able to try even a small test figure (of Beck) yet.
I did pick up some washers, though, which should make good bases for 2-inch figures. As nice as it would be to have stand-alone figures such as in that link.. Wind, rain, clutziness, and general bad luck do happen. So, having washers as a base would be far more useful. Balancing stand-alone figures can also be a problem, and I simply don't have the experience or time to work with that.
I was thinking that they could all follow a basic set of poses. Standing, sitting (such as on a 90-degree ledge), cheering (one arm raised, such as in declaration or triumph), and perhaps a characteristic pose for each... Such as Tron pointing ('Do it again, and better!'), Beck, hands akimbo ('What, it's not my fault!'), Able with one hand raised, as if explaining something ('I told you, fool!').
It's just a thought for now. I'll try making up a quick Beck figure tonight, and perhaps tomorrow I'll have a chance to try my hand at painting it. Time to break out the brass wire and polymer clay.
I'm looking forward to seeing what your own ideas are, IZI!
Also, good call on having Tron in different versions. I prefer the Uprising version, myself (also, given our cause), but others would be neat.
: Test-Beck's body is complete, sans head. I'll hopefully complete that and attach it tomorrow; for now, the test-figure is affectionately known as 'Zom-Beck' or 'Biscuit Beck' for having finished curing slightly on the burnt side.
This ended up being a 4-inch figure, and looking at it's scale, even having just a handful of these could get a little bulky, so I'll have to aim for smaller figures. 2 inch was my original hope, and I'll try for that with a different figure type. At that small scale, bases might not be needed, as the stability of this 4-inch figure required some additional foil around the washer base to compensate for the wires which anchored the figure's feet.
Sculpting small would also offer the major advantage of avoiding smaller details, especially facial or hand details - simply because they are extremely time-consuming, and threaten to drive me blind. It's very difficult to work a facial likeness where the character's face is half the dimensions of my fingernail. My eyes are bad enough.
Also, the figures might be in some situations where they might be damaged; simplicity is practical.
This Sculpey is quite soft, making detailing a pain. Due to it's composure, it takes any and every small nudge, fingerprint, or touch, yet it can't be easily carved away yielding smooth results (additional mass pulls along with it). I've heard that rubbing alcohol can have a smoothing effect, so I'll have to see if that works.order abortion pill morning after pill price where to buy abortion pill
