Nendoroid Expression Adding Highlights by Mikatan
Mikatan is nearing the completion of her Miku nendoroid expression (yea!) but first she needs to add highlights to Miku's eyes.
Using paints, paint cups and a paint brush Mikatan adds 2 types of highlights to Miku: the upper highlights and the lower highlights which are also known as crescent moons.
Even though Mikatan's Miku isn't painted to perfection, it's still a great nendoroid especially for her because it's something she created with her own 2 hands.
It's always something special when you work & create something with your own hands.
You appreciate it more because it is a part of you and you are a part of it.

Nendoroid Expression Applying Gradient by Mikatan
Previously Mikatan was preparing herself to apply gradient colors to Miku's eyes.
Now she is ready to airbrush the lacquer paint to her expression.
Mikatan is really challenging & improving herself by taking on such an ambition project.
For example, it takes the Good Smile Company pros 1 hour to mix the paints to get the correct shades.
Mikatan took at least 2 hours to mix her colors together.
A pro can airbrush nenodorid's eyes at the same time. While Mikatan has to paint her gradient eyes one at a time (which is the best choice given the precision and skill required to create the correct eye gradient)
Despite the extended time, Mikatan remain determines and in the end she uses the airbrush tool to paint her Miku eyes (most people would have given up a long time ago).
