sex change

Postby anevilgiraffe » Wed Jan 02, 2013 6:13 pm

before anyone moves this to the froth pot, I mean with a mini...

if you had a range of uniformed, armoured figures that were all male and wanted one as a female, what would you change on the figure?

slightly thicker chest for boobies obviously, but as mini women are generally slighter then mini men, how would you change the rest of the build? shorten legs and arms a wee bit? shorten the torso?

Which mini? Probably easier to suggest where/ what to cut with a pic.

Possibly add some putty to the hips + arse of the mini in question as well as to the chest.

Without a total resculpt you're just going to get something that looks like the real life equivilent - an obvious tranny with a padded bra.

Uniform with armor and gear? I'd say nothing.

I have a hard time distinguishing between male/female when they are in full combat dress anywhere past five feet. Maybe slightly wider shoulders.

would depend on the mini I guess but I wouldn't try to shorten anything, proportions should be basicly the same, but if possible I'd try to shave a bit of the waist to make it a bit slimmer, and add a bit to chest and possibly the hips, and obviously do a headswap and depending on how beefy the arms are an armswap

I'd say the crotch on the middle one at least needs trimming down a bit. :)

The gumby-looking heads would probably have to go, too.

heads are fine, I have plenty of lady heads... it's the body I'm looking at... will only use the one on the left or right anyway as you say...

Didn't this one come up a few years back? That nice chap who posts on the FoD who teaches anatomy explained all about proportions and how even with loads of armour on you subconsciously pick up on subtle cues so you can always tell the difference. I seem to remember that one running into quite a few pages :)
