Sumire Kanzaki Sakura Taisen 1 by ogamitaicho Sumire Kanzaki Sakura Taisen 1 by ogamitaicho
1/6 Kanzaki Sumire (Kimono Version) (Kaiyodo)

Hi everyone !

This Sumire kit from Sakura Taisen was almost a grail kit for me and I was so glad to be able to get her on Yahoo Japan Auction last year. This character is very popular for the Sakura Taisen fans and unfortunaltely her seiyu (Michie Tomizawa known also for have dubbed Sailor Mars too) retired... sniff.

I have always loved the movement of the kimono. The scale is pretty good and the cast was OK but with many seam lines and bubbles like a lot of original kits from this period (1998).

I tried to be as close as possible with the original color scheme that I love but I used some iridescent paint on the kimono to give a "silk" aspect. The same for the hairs and ribbons.
The flowers/leaves were a nice detailed that I totally hand brushed, then I had to mask with liquid mask to spray the purple kimono and shadings. I have done an orange pre-shading on the yellow knot, I find it always more easy to set it like this thanks to the transparency of the yellow.

I hope that you will like her and thanks for watching. She was a lot of fun to work on.

Thanks for the comment Reni ! :hug:

BTW, I love Reni too, a very mysterious but so great Sakura Taisen character !
too bad that we can't find some good resin figure of her !...
I remember when I played Sakura Taisen 2 on SegaSaturn, the way we learn that she is a girl and not a boy is very funny ! :D :D :D

Thanks you so much my friend ! :hug: you may have seen that it was my E2046 contest entry, but I build not her only for that, I may have built her soon or later because she is a very important character for me ! :D
Nearly a grail kit but not as much as the 1/4 Erica Fontaine ! ;)
A personal work between 2 commissions ! LOL
