SC24 - Codename: Slugfest
Subject is a well-known cyber-gladiator and athlete, having won the Romasko-Hoyle Cup and the Panbeam Championship. His latest successes have been pairing with the individual known as Piranha (cf. Subject SC18). The duo has become extremely popular on the holo-nets, and Silverprime Entertainment is working on a multi-year contract. Subject is also known to have ties to bodyguard Razor (cf. Subject SC32); specifics of their association is still under investigation.
Colors: The random color generator for this figure was orange (2), green (4), and blue (5).
I wanted to keep him somewhat similar to his teammate Piranha, so I opted for blue armor (VGC Imperial Blue, Magic Blue, AP Blue Tone Ink). The underlying suit was painted green (VGC Scurvy Green, Jade Green, AP Green Tone Ink). Finally, orange was used for the gloves and hoses (VGC Blood Red, Hot Orange, Orange Fire, Gold Yellow, AP Red Tone Ink). The clasps and chain on the front of the suit were painted gold (VGC Glorious Gold, AP Soft Tone Ink), and the skin was painted a darker skintone (MSP HD Suntan Flesh, AP Soft Tone Ink).
As I mentioned above, the hoses were miscast and I tried to paint the lower ones as though they were no longer receiving an "energy feed", leaving them a darker red rather than the brighter orange used on the torso and arms. The punching fist was painted with bright oranges, to simulate it being "charged up" while in use.
Conclusion: I like the contrast on this figure, and I think the effects on the first turned out nicely. The fist is extended so far from the body, I didn't think it was a great example of object source lighting (OSL), though I did try to play with that effect a bit on the glove itself. In retrospect, I think I probably should have made the lower hoses darker, to further indicate they weren't being "powered" like the upper hoses.
This leaves on three Salvage Crew figures, and my Seventh Target for 6MMRPC is complete!
