thnx man, honestly, I didnt feel right the last days(emotionally), so this is a commission... and I am already losing money, i was supposed to be done with it in 15 hrs, i am over 25 now. and the foregrip, get some sintra, it comes in various thicknesses. easy to work, to shape, lighter, takes paint well, really easy to glue (anything with cynoacrylate will do the trick) and is cheap. cover with some texture paint and u have a real looking grip.
shusu, i'll tell u a secret I started building 6 mos ago. i read bunch of tutorials, other props artists blogs. once I knew the basics, it was just go and do. If u have questions, I will gladly guide you with what I can, like I say I am new, but I can share what I have learned so far.
I just keep adding more to the list. I want to build everything!!!! I want to do the last samurai armor, the real deal, leather!!! I dont know how to work leather yet. but thats a project the end of the year. what r u working on shu?
I'm working on commissions right now. I want to finish them so I can work on something for myself. I've got 2 things that I really want ot make, but I dunno how my budget is looking like right now.
I'd like Clalaclan in her armor from Shinning Wind and/or Monk from Diablo. For the monk I'm looking into doing it all leather. I've found some great sources of info and material here so it's a matter of starting ^_^
I'm trying not to get too excited for my own projects before I finish the commissions. Really fighting the temptation XD
commissions commissions.. I know, but we have to do it, otherwise how are we supposed to go to cons? right? XDDD I love the clalaclan idea!!! Im pretty sure u will leave me speechless again. btw... I havent had any time to play diablo 3... well any game in the last 6 months... is it good? and, is clalaclan a npc? special character?
