    Custom Cortana Statue WIP

    Ty! I created them very carefully on the computer and then printed them as decals

    Custom Cortana Statue WIP

    Wow can't believe it's coming on two years since I made this thread. I tried making the base the Master Chief's glove cradling the chip with Cortana in the middle of it, but wasn't happy with my results. I ended up just sculpting some clay to look like a rocky base with the chip resting in it. I...

    Life's been busy, but here's a few more updates on Cortana. I'm pretty close to being done with her, my next step is to create the base which will be MC's hand. The plaque was created by an awesome guy on Facebook named Prop Plaques who worked with me on my specific requests and created it out...

    Some updates, finally applying decals to her. Still heavy WIP, still need to clean up decals I messed up on, and add more blue paints to make decals blend better.

    Thank you! and yes, exactly. I really like the Weta Cortana statue design of the chip and MC's gloved hand holding it, but I never liked her face/pose. So more than likely, once I'm done with my Cortana paint up, I'll create the chip/or buy one and use that as the base. If that looks good, I'll...

    Finally have an update, got around to dusting off my Badger 150 airbush and trying some effects. Here's what I have so far

    Got in some work in AI for the eventual decals. Using lots of reference, very rough still. Also plan another lighter layer of decals for more 'circuit board' imagery she has.

    Still refining hair, more pics: Spent many hours sanding down previous hair layer and trying to refine lines on new hair sculpt, is definitely harder than I anticipated.

    Thanks Paigan! Yes, I envision something very similar to the Weta statue. Basically, Master chief's hand holding Cortana's Data chip, with that figure on top.

    I'm still seeing imperfections, so I keep sanding away to get it smooth hence the more white spots on her body. Finally added rough sculpt of hair, I will sand it and add further strands of hair until it's too my liking, so right now it's very rough.

    Thanks guys. Just minor update so far. Wasn't happy with some of the seamlines (mainly around the stomach and hip area), so went back, sanded more and reprimed those areas. Here it is with what is hopefully the last prime before I start the real base colors.

    Hope this is the right forum! Anyways, I've always wanted a good quality Cortana statue, unfortunately ever since the Sideshow one got cancelled there haven't been any. The WETA statue is very nice (and expensive) and has a good concept, but I don't like the figure, it's not detailed enough for...
