It has been a really long time since the previous WIP for OverFlag, about half a year ago in September. For a long time I didn’t work on him at all until recently, when my plamo urges seem to have finally kicked in. ^ ^;
Not too much major changes. 1st, the shoulders as well as the body is refined.
For the lower arms I really have no idea what to do with them right now.
For the upper arms, where the biceps are, I scribed some panel lines and sharpened some points.
Took that middle piece out which links their movements but also hinders their full range of articulation.
I never had the wings on these thrusters because it hindered the arms’ movements, but I had the piece which connected the wings & the thruster. Without the wings, those pieces look awkward but I liked them.
So I drastically thinned them down. Maybe you could think of them as mini-wings? Before (left) and After (right).
I also had always pulled OverFlag’s body up, but then the waist was always just a stick. So I actually puttied this big block as his waist.
Then I also changed the style of the waist somewhat. And yes, I actually like the body slanting slightly backwards.
After some refinements, it’s ready to be primed again. Then additional refinements will need to be made, specifically scribing some panel lines on the block.
Plain putty is pretty plain. I decided to add these parts on the chest this way for some details. I personally think that it looks rather nice. ^ ^
Current progress so far. The upper body is pretty much finished in modding. I still need to work on everything waist down, including the lower arms and the backpack. Currently, I’m trying to redesign the hip thrusters.
