model Build "Kyubei"(キュゥべえさんを作ってみた)

A very interesting video on making a Kyubi figure (Mahou Shoujo Modoka) from scratch.
The material used by the author is polyester putty, commonly known as auto body filler.
I'm curious on what material the eyes are made of since I can't read Japanese. A great video on the process on making a figure from scratch.

Let's Make an Anime Figure!: The Torso

Finally! A new video is up on my "Let's sculpt an Anime Figure" series.
The topic this time is sculpting the torso. This is a general form of the torso so it can be made to be either male or female, although in this video I was aiming for an athletic female physique. The material used in this video was MwaxZ-E, the softest of the modeling waxes.
So enjoy and stay tuned for more videos from Midztoyz.
