Hi all,

i'm actually watching "the walking dead", a very addictive TV serie (i'm in the middle of the third season), and i would like to do something about it...

My first thought was the Michonne charactere, with her two "minions" of course !
Here is a little sketch of the project:



And here is the sculpt work in progress







Any criticism is welcomed.

cheers

I nice idea and subject. If you only have seen the tv-series I strongly recomend you to check the comic and how she is portrayed there. Perhaps its easier to capture the face of a comic than a real person.

She is looking very awesome Nico. As always I am impressed with your talent. The Walking Dead is my favorite television program to watch so I am following your progress with great interest. Do you plan on building the two "minions" as well?

Looking great.

Thanks a lot Randy

Yes, i want to add the two minions, i want to present the trio the way they look beetween season two and three (with the chains).

I'm so eager to see the season five ! I guess you'll have it before us in France, the streaming websites will be overloaded when the show come back !!!!

I put tamiya grey primer before the first paint :
