Title: WHITE MANDO WIP
Post by: enry73 on Aug 08, 2019, 04:23 PM
Hello! After much work I'm here with my white mando WIP creating following the guidelines :) I still have to create the  laces cover on the boots  :o and fix  the hem of coat. Your advice is precious to me!

Hi Vod
is a good start.
It seems to me that the chest plates are a bit large and loose. Possibly the angle of the photo.

I would weather the soft parts some. Your armor has chips and is off white from what i can see but the soft parts look ultra bright. I would be very sparing with weathering them and use light colors but i think it will help keep the soft parts from fighting with the plates so much. Maybe just hit areas that would naturally have more wear and then leave it alone. Other that that it looks great!

I second the weathering of soft parts.  If your plates are worn, dirty,  and damaged then the soft parts need to match that.  I also agree on the plates looking a little big.

THX! One question: i love snow mando, very white like snow :) This is correct for this version? I I saw some "snow mando"  wihit light weathering only on the plates but with the soft parts cleaned. WHat do you think about this?

Here are some examples I found flipping through the first couple of pages of the completed armor thread that you can look at for fun. The soft parts are clean on them.

Itís just my opinion but i still think that adding some weathering, at the least to your joints where you would naturally rest on the ground or apply pressure, would make the suit less stark. I think the same about the ones i attached.  Look at snowtroopers or rebel troops on hoth. None of them are totally clean and the white of their soft parts isnt a bleach white. As i worked on my suit i thought about the story behind it and why it looked the way it did. If your character is in 10ft of snow at all times i guess it wouldnt have bad mud stains but the cloth would have water damage, worn areas, blaster/shrapnel damage, etc. ultimately though itís your choice. Your build still looks good regardless.

Take a look at the Snow Troopers from Hoth.  Their suits aren't snow white.

You could do grey or tan weathering or something similar to the soft goods; wonít be as harsh as browns or blacks but still will show weathering and be consistent with your armor :)
