My clients consistently request one character more than any other; Cover Girl. I can't blame them because while Hasbro did finally give us an official one in the "Rise of Cobra" movie line, she looked nothing like her vintage character and the head and hair sculpts were abysmal.
But since I won't make exactly the same figure twice, it can be challenging to come up with different takes on the character. You can check out some of my previous takes here, here, here, here, here, here, and even this little cutie here.
So when a client recently contacted me to make another one, I was a little hesitant. But when he suggested I use one of the cool new Slayer Design Studio torsos as a base, I agreed to do it.
I imagine this is what CG might look like when she's down in "The Pitt" at the Garage level working on the Wolverine, hence the nickname "Grease Monkey Cover Girl." The wash on her tank top gives her just a hint of sexy perspiration without making her look like she's stinky.
Since her parts are so different from the vintage figure, I stuck closely to her original colors. As for the hair, the client liked the parted bangs I had done on previous CG so I sculpted some for her as well. I like them even better this time around.
I spent a lot of time prepping, fitting, and cleaning up the Slayer torso but in the end all the hard work paid off. I hope you dig her. If you do, leave a comment below or contact me for a commission of your own. I hope you've enjoyed "Cover Girl Week" as much as I have. Until next time, I remain "The Insidious One."
