I hope this isn't too obvious, but i haven't read a thread that proposes this so far...
If you want to have more women among your minifigures, here is a quite simple way how to even the scales, especially for those who don't have the ressources for bricklink or pick a brick.
All you need is the following:
- A couple of classic LEGO-Heads (most of you will have plenty of them)
- Black and Red permanent markers
Simply enlarge the eyes for the illusion of eyelashes and draw the lips, voilà!
To make it easier, stick your classic heads together and just paint those in the center, so you can always touch those at the ends without destroying anything.
If you did something wrong: Use toilet paper and lighter-fuel to erase the permanent marker from the head.
Maybe you wont use them for the protagonists in your creations, but this technique serves quite well when the face is behind a visor of a (now female) knight in your army:
The faces may not be the most beautiful among your minifigs, but i think they are comparable to these:
How do you (try to) achieve gender equality among your minifigures (if you are aiming at it)?
EDIT: Damn, I should have set a "TUTORIAL: " in front of the title of the topic... would a mod do this, please?
