Title: Kainrath's WIP armor concept
Post by: Kainrath on Jan 04, 2021, 09:50 PM
Here's a basic layout for some of the armor parts...still working on the gauntlets, back, knees and boots.
Coloring to come next...

Though I don't really know what I'm doing, I'm having a blast doing it!!
Super stoked and excited to be here!

Think I might have posted this in the wrong forum...should have been in the concept forum...

Updated with color:

Realizing that the "blood" coloring might be a little over the top...Here's an alternate version (instead of bleeding, it's leaking Beskar!):

Yeah, the change to the color is better, seeing as the club has a no gore rule.

Looks like a solid concept, and it looks like it will be an amazing kit once it is done

Been slowly gathering items for my kit...don't have much yet, but I'm getting there ...
The leather items and sash I made myself, the rest is bought stuff.

Wow those hand plates are super smooth! Are they resin, and where did you get them?

They are resin. They are quite nice. I ordered them from JJ Industries (as well as the belt buckle, which Iím very pleased with).

That leather looks great!
Thanks! I enjoy leatherworking a lot. Iím working on the belt now...

Here's how the belt is coming along...

And also been working on lower leg covers, which may have shin armor placed on top of it...haven't decided about that yet.
Right leg is mostly done...

The front is just tucked underneath itself for now, the plan is for it to be tucked behind the chest armor
