Sorami Kanata repaint

I repainted a used figure of Sorami Kanata in summer uniform with her bugle.

It was a bit scuffed and the original paint had splatters, I also thought the base was boring. Why do good series so often only have mediocre figures? Her face is dorky, detail is fairly poor and the base looks plasticky. The paint looked dull, with some glossy spots that shouldn’t be glossy. Even so I guess I was lucky to get it for $8.56 on ebay auction, as the set this is from are pretty much the only figures for the series, and they are somewhat hard to find now.

I thought it would be fun to put before and after side by side:
