    Well, more like "Gnaw" Gura!

    A followup to my Takanashi Kiara custom from a few months back, it's yet another of the hololiveEN personalities in Transformer form!

    I've been planning this ever since I first photoshopped up Kiara months back, and as soon as I got Gnaw in hand my plans kicked into high gear. Like with Kiara from Airazor, I heavily reworked the existing headsculpt with Tamiya epoxy putty to give it a closer likeness to the personality.

    Paint is mostly Tamiya sprays (Brilliant Blue for the bulk of the body) with brushwork for the face/skin/detailing, and yeah, she looks fantastic in person.

    But I didn't just stop at using regular Studio Series Gnaw... not when we had a tiny shark mold that was PERFECT for creating a proper chibi Smol Gura. Again, heavy epoxy putty use, this time on the face and chest.

    As for some notes re: the resculpting... yeah. A lot of work. The trickiest part actually WASN'T the tedious "cut away the helmet to redo the hair", but rather "fill in the sunken eyes on the Gnaw mold so that I could actually paint them and see them not in shadow."

    a





    The only thing that could make this even more perfect is if you had removed the beast mode's bottom teeth.

    I was just gonna make a meme with the Sharkticon saying “a,” but you went all out and made Gnawr Gura a reality. Respect, my man

    With you tackling Kiara and Gura, now time to figure out Calli, Ina, Ame, IRYS, and maybe the Holo-Council members.

    Is there a specific angle/image you need of it saying "a" for the sake of that? :p 

    Yeah, I haven't thought of good toys for the rest of the gen 1 girls. Got a good suggestion for Kronii last night, that said.

    Man, this custom figure of Gura made me laugh. I'm really surprised you would do this sort of thing, Sharkticons aren't known for having female versions of themselves.

    But in Gura's case, this actually fits her along with the mini version of her. Good job.
