Account suspension is the penalty for that, I asked! Thank you so much!!ponnie (4 months ago) #16008785Well, they send you a notice of due payment and if you pay, everything's okay. If not - they most likely return the item or throw it away or resell it, have no idea. Also, they say they charge soem sort of penalty. Not sure what it is, you better ask them :3

ponnie (4 months ago) #15965713I can't believe I finally got to reply you! these three weeks were probably the worst for me for quite some time. I think I can't remember what I did last week, at all. There was so much going on I guess it's been quite an overload.
I actually solved the trouble of buying paints online. I buy basic colors and then mix them to my own liking. You only need 5 - yellow, blue, red, black and lots of white :3
I always get mixed feeling about pre-mixed hues. Those are not mine...
Most cities in Russia are quite far from each other. They get more rare in the Eastern part, too. Lots of little villages, though. I think it's about 30000 locations total? Maybe some more.
As for kit scale, I think 1/12 is fine. It really pops with all the details you can add and it can be painted very quickly (which is a bonus!)
1/4 is scary indeed. But at such big surface you can add a lot of subtle details and it just stands there looking awesome!
I still prefer shading with pastels because my aim is a bit off with an airbrush. I get better gradually - at least I see where it goes now but still nowhere near enough painting fine lines in corresponding crevices. A very interesting experience, though!
Give it a try, you can paint galaxies on wings in several simple layers, how cool is that!

Hello!

No problem at all, sometimes real life just hits you. D: Big chance that for me soon there will also come some big personal changes, which will make me inactive for a while here.

I hope you're doing well now, though!

Oh wow! Considering how slow I am with painting, I could never finish a whole kit with colors I mixed myself, haha. I already have some problems with a mixed haircolor I was working on with the Suigintou I linked to you earlier. >.<

Considering how huge your country is, that doesn't sound like much! The Netherlands has these "blotches" of busy places (mostly one big city surrounded by many villages) and then a lot of long roads with nothing on there to get to the next 'blotch', haha.

I'm really curious how your 1/4 will turn out! :)

Yes, I saw quite some people that use pastels and handpainting next to their airbrush. I also really want to pick up pastels soon! My Suigintou is quite an...uh...mess, lol. And a lot of my materials are outdated/not useable anymore. When I can actively pick up painting GK's again, I want to invest in a lot of new materials!

Not sure if you're interested in it if I send you any pics, but I did make a lot of progress with cosplay again recently! So I'm still busy with creative stuff, unfortunately not much with GK's anymore.

Oh wow, that looks great! :D That's for the small Madoka GK with the horrible tabs, right? :)

Bubuh (4 months ago) #15990233Hi!! Can you help me with a question? What happens if I do not make a payment for a invoice from Shopping Mall Japan?

Sorry for the long wait, I got kind of buried with work and stuff.
It's really hard to go on with renovations and all once you move in. I mean, it's been over a year since we moved and we still have no bed, just a matress. I'm happy we did the bathrooms, floors/walls/ceilings before we moved in. Otherwise they would be an endless work for sure.
Warhammer seems to be universal thing, people go kinda crazy for these here, too! I don't really get something this small, though. They are also too expensive, I mean, they sell acrylics and brushes at such prices >__<
I have just a couple of local friends who do Warhammer and GKs but no one lives close. Russia's too big >__< You can also try looking at BJD communities - people there seem to like garage kits as well as custom dolls :3
E was really fucked up at some point but I shall admit they got better. Never had a problem with them recently and casting quality got better, too.
Takeshi Miyagawa stuff is always so big. I wanted his Illya kit but the size kind of put me off, 1/6 is too big for me, with just a few exceptions. I'm more into 1/8 and smaller. Although I did get a very fine and expensive 1/4 bust of Kurisu but that was too good to pass, to be honest. She's so beautiful~~
Donyatsu is a very short manga, not much reading to do. And its funny! I read manga from my phone and it's quite convenient :3
As for airbrushing: yeah, I'm still not good enough to add shading with AB, so I have to use pastels. In fact, I managed to finish a full kit like that and I quite like the result. The kit is slightly rough because my aerosol matte spray turned out to be crappy but at 1/12 scale the figure still looks good :3

I think I really like airbrushing, it's so much new and interesting :3


Hello!

No problem at all, I sometimes also get busy unexpectedly! ;)

Yeah, we did all the big/important things before moving in, but still had some other things that needed to be done once we were there. The biggest things being a roof fix and new protective painting on the outside of the house. While both things were happening on the outside, we still had a big mess on the inside, because of the storage of the materials and the people working on our house stepping in all the time. >.< We will get less busy with both our job and conventions/stand/volunteer-work this winter, so I hope we can make a lot of progress with unpacking boxes and putting together some more furniture soon, haha! You also best of luck with your place! :)

Yeah, Warhammer is incredibly popular over here too! The popularity is not very visisble, as most people are 'hidden' inside Games Workshop-stores which are then hidden again in the back-alleys of big cities. xD But yeah, lots of people paint and play it over here. I was surprised when I found out about it for the first time! I think their brushes are way too expensive, but their paints are pretty okay priced. At least a lot better than what the arts- and craftstores charge for regular acrylics over here. :/ I'm not so keen on buying paints online, because I can't see the "real" colors.

I can understand that. From what I know of Russia, there are quite some big cities, but all those cities are far away from eachother? And lots of land is wild nature/unused?

Ah yes, I have been getting referred to BJD communities a lot recently, haha! I maybe see myself getting into BJD at one point too, but for now they are a bit too expensive for me... xD

Yeah about 1-2 years ago E went really strange, but they seem to be improving again. But in general I try to avoid recasting-companies now. I still have a lot of unpainted kits on my backlog and more chances to get original kits (for good prices too!) than before.

Uh-huh! Most of his stuff is 1/6. I quite like painting in that scale, although I agree with you that it's very big! I think I prefer 1/8 to paint myself, anything smaller than that becomes too small for me. I still have a really tiny 1/12 kit of a character on her knees, but too scared to start on it. >.<

I saw that 1/4 bust you got! That's amazing! I hope it turns out well! I would be afraid myself to make it a huge, undetailled blob, haha!

Aahh, I really prefer to read 'old fashioned'. A lot of manga is pretty hard to get for me, but I do like having a physical collection.

Most of the people I know that airbursh, still do small details with hand. About shading with airbrush I guess people are more divided about that. But wow! The finished kit in those pictures looks really good! Very nice job! :)

You get me so excited to try airbrushing myself, ahaha! But I barely have time to work on cosplay and it's been almost a year since I touched the GK I am working on now (it's this one btw, 90% finished or so,but I have big plans for the base, which is holding me off: item #12274 )
