These last few days have been wild to say the least. The went something like this:
Thursday, November 10: Finished Shenlong for realsies. At this point I feel that the build was good and clean, but the model itself - mostly the head - looks a bit off.
Saturday, November 12: Took photos. Still believe it was a clean build, and I was able to work around the head, positioning it at different angles so that it looked less derpy. Later on I clean up all of my tools and put the model on the shelf.
Monday, November 14: Took my first real look at the photos from Saturday. Suddenly I now think the head looks perfectly fine. Also, I’m noticing mistakes that I never saw before, most notably some crusty black paint on the left side of the head, as well as some clear coat frosting on the backside. I go into a mini nervous breakdown, as I struggle to understand how, after just a day or two, the model looks so much different than it did before. Why does the head look so different, and why didn’t I notice these mistakes earlier?
