Finally, after 16 months, here is my completed diorama of Seishirou and Hokuto playing chess based off of Clamp’s Tokyo Babylon manga original release volume 5 pgs 31-32. Originally the scene was just of them playing chess at the table, but I wanted to change it and include some sweets also
Everything is hand painted with acrylics/iridescents/water mixable oils.
Seishirou and Hokuto are completely scratch built and sculpted of Magic Sculpt with a Super Sculpey/SS Firm armature.
Everything else in the scene is not sculpted by me, but rather store bought. I did repaint or otherwise modify everything in the scene, the sole exceptions being the white table and utensils. The changes are as follows:
-the table and chairs originally came in a 5 piece set with two more chairs. I ripped off the chair backs, painted the legs black and added a white magic sculpt cushion.
-I added tea into the originally empty cups.-I added a very light dark brown pattern to the plates-Half the donuts originally were different color frosting with sprinkles. The other half was mini pasties that I modified into donuts. All were repainted. Seishirou’s angel cream donut was puttied and repainted.
-The cake was originally all green and whole. I removed a few pieces from it, added chocolate frosting, and strawberry filling. The little loose strawberries were part of the mini pasties.
-the chess board was originally black and gold changed to black and white.
-The floor was oversized dollhouse black and white tile floor that was cut to size and repainted
-the donut box was completed repainted to be a mini Mister Donut box.
This is a Fan art sculpture for my own private collection.
