I've wanted a MA Sabik for a long time and I happened to catch the annual Soom Christmas kit, so I ordered him blank. I didn't have a character in mind for him and am considering using him as a photostory model so I have an excuse to make outfits outside of my developing Shadowrun-inspired story. I did know that I wanted him to be fair-haired.
He's a giant compared to the rest, but I just love him. For his faceup, I used Volks and Rembrandt pastles, pencils, ZM UV cut finish and Volks gloss.
So far, the brows look good. Once I added lid shadow, however, I didn't take it up to the brow, so he has a bit of a surprised look.
I bought both wigs second hand from DoA and love them both. Here is Captain Lysander Bowie, with Ethan before I installed his eye lashes. In the short, blonde wig and his default Soom Night Silent eyes, he's Capt. Bowie.
Captain, because he towers over the rest of the gang. I'm thinking he'll have a bit of a commanding air to him and be just a touch bossy with the others. It's also Time Lord-ish...The Captain.
Here he is with eye lashes, a long brown/blonde wig, and blue/brown eyes. Not so Captain-ish, so here he is Lysander. I also darkened and lowered his brows a touch. Bill took one look of this version and called him Joni Mitchell.
As to the rest of his character, my friend John described him best: he's seen stuff and is tired of talking about it. Hopefully, it's all the in past. Clearly, I have a penchant for sculpts that can look world-weary yet still smile.
For outfits, I'm thinking of something like this, a bit more military-ish.
And for his post-Military, every day wear, something Mori-ish.
At the moment, however, I'm focused on Level 1 of the TGKA Master Knitter program, so I don't know when I'll get to making his outfits.
