Mad Bodgin’ Mage (Amiibo SMASH) Log: Pikachu & Pichu

For this log we’re gonna go over the process of placing this little guy…

…atop this guy’s head:

I got the idea from when I drew this for someone:

I figured that the similar poses would make the idea work really well here, though I find Pikachu deceptively hard to draw properly. I find toothier things much easier:

Anyway, we started with the little guy’s arms…

..and added his body. His head was put on after it was sculpted separately, with a hole for the tail that will be going on later:

Here’s the aforementioned tail. There were two feet here, too, but I forgot to photograph it at that point.

Next up was making some ears out of plasticard, then attaching them and the other extremities to the body:

Then, I primed it up:IMG_5008

 

After that, it was time slap some paint on it:

And with that, they’re ready to smash… though Pichu probably wouldn’t last long.

I had an idea while working on this: a simplified version of Cait Sith and Mog from Final Fantasy 7 could have potential, methinks…
