I desire a thoughtful robust piece, so axle diameters will double or triple, all elements that will be exposed to stress & fatigue will be re-enforced or redesigned. This ring now stands on its own, a feature that will be standardized on most if not all future designs.
The spinal ridge hair not only facilitates standing, but ammo carriage as well. I will consider added bolt carrying capacity.
Worked the texture & details. Debating whether to add pupils or not. I like the blind/all seeing look or non directional nature of the eyes though I'm not exactly sure as to why. Much more surface attention is required & then after initial casting, the adjustments for live action mid class distraction satisfaction.
The two issues that irk me are the arrow flights & the arrow jostling in the chamber. Both can attributed somehow to the elastic power source. Squared rubber bands tend to twist during cocking and create added vectors in power which appear to alter arrow flight behavior & the occasional jumbling of how the arrows align within the chamber. A rounded less powerful rubber band seems to have decreased such incidents, but the properties of the wax also impact behavior, so all of this mute until the results can be observed in the final medium of resin.
Here are videos of her shooting projectiles... don't blink...
