Frightnening Fiend of Slaanesh






I have no idea how this is going to turn out, but I thought I'd share my attempt at making a Keeper of Secrets with Dakka.
I've already been working on this model for almost a month now. I'm using Blender 2.79 to model this, and Shapeways to print
it.
Warning: this thread contains big pictures

My first test prints arrived today! There is going to be a lot of sanding in my near future.
Spoiler:


These first renders are in Cycles with materials assigned, no UVs or anything. My next step is rigging and posing.

Looking really good there.

Playing into the "excessive beauty" nicely without relying on 6 breasts, nudity, etc. Including the two pincer arms tie him/her/it was to the demonettes.

Will you be including similar hair to the demonettes, and a pose similar to the new KoS? Dripping with seduction but arms posed for combat would be perfect!

The renders are lovely and the test print looks good. Looking forward to more.

I don't think hair is in the cards for this one, Dr. Mills.
I still need to do a ton of weight painting, but I can start testing out poses at least. This one is.. Jazz hands?

I think the head, particularly the mask, is inspired.

I think the rest of it is a tired, stock 'sexy demon lady', that doesn't hit many of the defining characteristics of a KoS. Needs more tits, for a start. Needs male characteristics; KoS are androgynous and genderfluid.

You could save yourself some troubles and just put that head on Mierce Miniature's Euralya to achieve much the same effect.

You know, if there's one thing I've learnt from being in the Army, it's never ignore a pooh-pooh. I knew a Major who got pooh-poohed; made the mistake of ignoring the pooh-pooh. He pooh-poohed it! Fatal error! 'Cause it turned out all along that the soldier who pooh-poohed him had been pooh-poohing a lot of other officers who pooh-poohed their pooh-poohs. In the end, we had to disband the regiment.

Speaking of 'mostly a naked chick', I always wished Euralya was a little weirder. Or at least more interested in what she's doing, that pose / expression is so meh.

Fluid Fox, I really dig where you're headed and how you're getting there Clearly your take on the ideal Keeper of Secrets differs from Excommunicatus, or GeeDub, or myself, but I see no problem with that in the least - nor do I side with the 'but what about the man bits' camp when it comes to Kippers The render you're playing with is quite slick and the printed head parts look very nice.

I do have a comment on your 3D model, that I don't think strays too far into personal fetish areas, which these debates tend to devolve into: I think her hooves / heels / feet are too dainty. I feel like for her height she would look more balanced with either taller platforms / heels (to also account for where the rest of her foot is; another option would be those ballet-style fetish heels), or maybe wider hooves if you want to think of them as more cloven hooves than shoes. I'm reminded of early UltraForge (the prelude to Creature Caster) hoofed demons, with strangely small little underveloped hooves.

For avoidance of doubt, yeah my opinion is just that; my opinion. I'm not purporting to tell you what to do with your plastic crack and I'm not trying to preach GW orthodoxy. My KoS is in tit-bondage, you know? So you do you.

My comments are only meant to signify that it doesn't necessarily 'read' as a KoS at first glance.

And again, the whole 'masquerade' implication is sublimely delicious.

Thanks for the feedback. Maybe my next keeper will be more Baphomet than Kali. =)
I still need to adjust some of the topology to get a better subdivision, but the modeling is finished. Next step is cutting and printing. I'm looking into a DLP printing service atm, if anyone knows a good one let me know! Seriously let me know because all this sanding is going to kill me.

I have to wait almost a month for my print to show up, so I started working on a daemonette conversion in the mean time.

Test paint is looking good. I like where that daemonette is going, as well. Lovely sense of motion.

Some progress on the little daemonette. My first time with scale75 and I'm really liking the mat finish!

Finished my little daemonette. I like how the skin turned out compared to the rest of the model, but thats probably just because I spent more time on it. Maybe a few more layers of that purple oil glaze over the boots while I'm sanding the Kipper? The stuff takes days to dry anyway.

The print showed up finally, but I somehow forgot to order the mask! Oh well I have enough sanding to do in the meantime. 6.66" is kinda tall. -_-

That looks like a really good print, worthy of the time you put into designing it. I also love the Daemonette conversions, I look forward to seeing more from this log.

6.66" is 0.16" taller than Zarakynel, measuring to the top of Her left hand.

She's literally a beast. Nice.

Sanded and ready to prime, and nothing broke!

Primed with white gesso, then sanded a little to smooth over some of the areas that still looked too printy. My sister loaned me her airbrush which was very nice of her, and saved me a lot of time base coating.

Finishing the base coat for the metals by sacrificing brushes to vallejo liquid gold. I was not prepared for that gak lol


Building up highlights and occlusion shadows on the skin, I'll need it to be varnished before I continue to the next step

Very tasty progress, loving that smooth skin tone. And really enjoying watching this design become reality

Some progress shots! I'm still struggling to take decent pictures.



Next step is the add shadows to the metals with reikland fleshshade gloss, then build highlights on them.
After that all thats left is to glaze oils over the metals to get that deep shiny purple/magenta look like you see in the renders. I hope.

That's mighty impressive! I feel like a bit more definition on the back anatomy would have gone a long way, but she's still gorgeous!

Also a tutorial on how you converted that daemonette would be appreciated >.>

I basically just used aves apoxie and tiny rubber tools to model that daemonette conversion.
