Waddle Doo, Waddle Don't

Ahh, Waddle Doo.


To be honest, I can't think of much to say. Waddle Doo has never particularly meant anything to me as a minion or an installment of the Kirby franchise, but I won't deny it was fun making the li'l dude. I had a blast painting his eye; I discovered that a suitable alternative to using straight black for eyes is to mix it with some blue, which gives it a bit more depth, something I've been struggling with on another sculpture I need to finish painting.

Also, those antennae were a real pain in the heinder, so I'm glad they managed to stay in place (mostly, that one on the left is drooping) while they were baking.

Besides the flawed feet, Waddle Doo looks very nice!

Did you model this before or after Brawl?

What's wrong with the feet?

I made it early last week, using the picture in the lower left corner as reference. The colors are a bit brighter on mine, but I like him anyway. :D

The feet cracked a bit. Seems you could have moulded it a bit better - or faster. I looks like you tried to merge the material but it solidified too early =P

And I find the colors alright, actually.

Oh yeah, just noticed that. I had to add more to the foot in order to get it to stand properly; I guess I forgot to push the bits together to make it seamless. Thanks for the feedback again!
