Figure: MARCO


I think the defining feature of Marco is, of course, his flame wings. Since the tournament regulations prohibited the use of clear molding, I had a lot of fun thinking about how I could express his wings within those restrictions. I came up with the idea of separating the parts into layers and stacking them while watching the anime for color reference. I was worried about how the final colors would turn out, but by showing a little bit of yellow through the gaps I was able to recreate the fiery impression, just like from the anime. The uncanny unity between Marco’s beast body and human body, combined with his vibrant colors work so well together.
