Good start, and great job on starting with paper instead of jumping straight to sintra.  Your plates are a little wide for you.  You'll want to trim them up a bit.


(That's a very rough approximation of where you'll want to trim)
For the idea aesthetic, you'll want to have the bottom edges of the collar line up with the upper outside edges of the chest plates...and you'll also want the outside edges of your ab plate to follow the same line as the edges of your chest plate fangs.

If you look at pics of Jango, you'll see that his armor doesn't actually cover all that much area.




You'll also want to link the photo directly into your post, rather than just having a link to your picture.  You'll get more feedback if folks don't have to follow an outside link.  If you're not sure how to put the picture directly in your post, check out this thread.  For how to host images here on the MMCC’s site, if you’re an Auxilliary Member or Supporter, check out this awesome guide!
