|Checkered skirt design for the Pinup Savior was actually inspired by Scottish kilt designs|
|Natural flare of the skirt helps accentuate the skirt's design|
|For the checkered skirt design, the vertical lines were not as pronounced as the horizontal lines|

Final results of the checkered skirt were not as detailed as I initially envisioned. Painting the design was more difficult than I had anticipated which meant less lines were painted on the Pinup Savior's skirt. Ideally, the final results should have mimicked my concept art (see above) but I decided to quit while I was ahead before the whole skirt became a jumbled mess of paint splatter. But with every miniature that I attempt to paint comes a better grasp of what is needed to improve for future minis.
|Can you spot her big toe sticking out of a leather shoe?|
Meanwhile, the Pinup Savior's boots were given brownish-ochre colours to stimulate treated leather. Having her big toe pushing out of one of the leather shoes was a nice sculpting touch. I tried my best to do justice to that little bit of detail. Below are some other shots of the work-in-progress Pinup Savior. Her sword (not shown in the photos), staff, hair and base remains unpainted.

|Metallic designs on her belt hints at a gothic attire|
|Her unpainted hair reminds me of the silver hair of Daenerys, a Game of Thrones character|
Next up for the Kingdom Death Pinup Savior will be her hair. I am currently leaning towards her having a blonde look as gold/yellow goes well with blue. More progress pictures soon ... hopefully!
