I'm in the process of writing/drawing another story, and I'll point to that from here when I can. There is a kind of Policy Police link, too. But more of that anon.
I thought I'd just do a post here about these guys who are helping me out with the drawing.
Infinitely more patient than regular humans, and more human than the wooden people you can get. I bought them second hand off a well-known auction site, and they are most certainly bootleg versions of Figma Archetype figures. They are pretty good for bootlegs. I'd say the finish is not brilliant and they had been put together wrong, but with a bit of tweaking they suit my purpose.
They are around about 1/12 scale and the photo shows them with a wonderfully mundane retro office desk and chair by Hasegawa. Just the sort of thing the Policy Police would have in their office.
Anyway. These guys help a lot. Though he's built like a boxer and she's built like a distance runner, they are enough like regular folks to get by. I find I have to regularly shave off some of his bulk in the drawing and occasionally make her body shorter, but it's easily done.
