Sage was quite a challenge, on first inspection you would think it was a simple piece to do, but alas that wasn't the case. Quite a bit of Milliput used creating belts, pouches wrist bands, ankle straps, and not forgetting the hair. She has a pretty iconic hair-style, with the hair at the front, ant the shape of the hair at the back, plus she has her ears on show.
I chose the Moondragon figurine for the base, specifically because it is the only figurine that has the ears on show.
I had to remove the cloak, smooth down the gloves, and reduce the size of the ears. Once i had a basic smooth character to work with I started with the hair, creating the back of the hair first before adding the trademark front locks. The it was a slow step-by-step case of adding each bit of Milliput for all the add-ons. The Moondragon figurine is possibly the worst one released by Eaglemoss, a poor sculpt, so the challenge was to take an ugly piece and turn it into an attractive one.
The base paint was quite easy to apply, and the detail was fun to add, especially the eye tattoo's. It was a fun piece to do, and quite a different challenge to the previous X-Man, Pixie.
Here's a picture of Sage, with Pixie.
Next up is Victor Zsasz, or Mr. Zsasz as he's sometimes called, followed by a return to more Marvel characters, or more precisely X-Men characters.
