Orar Beskad's 1st W.I.P
« on: Oct 07, 2015, 01:07 PM »
So here I am with my first WIP. I've never done anything like this, so this is a huge learning experience for me. All the feedback, suggestions, insults and trash talking will be greatly appreciated. :P Work and RL allow me only about one day a week to myself, so bear with me, this might take a while.
 
 
The upper portion of the chest and abs look a bit large, but once I am able to get them bent properly I think they will look better. My next step is to transfer this to poster board so I am able to bend it a little and get a better idea of how it will look.
I'm also considering losing the #4 ab plate. It looks a bit too low. Also looks like it could restrict movement.

(speaking from experience) Increase the size of the arms eye on the chest plate.  This will make the chest plate a bit narrower but will also allow you to cross your arms or allow you to punch the greeblie buttons on your vambraces (gauntlets).

I debuted my kit at a recent convention here in Portland, OR - I ended up with some major bruising on the inside of my biceps from where the armor restricted my attempts at activating my phone my R vambrace.

An ounce of prevention...

Thanks for the input! I'm gonna open up the arms a bit and drop the bottom plate.  I'm also working on a duct tape form of my upper body to help with forming the plates when I get to that stage. Pics will follow as soon as I have a bit more progress.
