Kebiin Mesum段ka - WIP thread
« on: Feb 03, 2021, 05:47 PM »
This is more of a practice build than anything else, but I plan on submitting my final kit for the Verd段ka Corps!

Background stuff:
D致ash (pronounced dih-VAHSH) means 塗oney in Hebrew. I致e noticed a lot of similarities between Mando誕 and Hebrew, so I decided it was only fitting for my mando to have a name in Hebrew! Their last name is Tracinya, Mando誕 for 吐lame.

D致ash is a foundling. (Backstory still WIP) They were from Alderaan, and on a school field trip to (planet/system) when it was blown up. A mandalorian covert in the area took in them and their classmates, and when they came of age, they decided to swear to the creed. D致ash always preferred non-violent solutions from a young age, using a combination of words and smarts to get out of fights. However, they still know how to defend themself, and are very capable with both armed and unarmed combat. D致ash has a deep hatred for the empire, and is known to hunt down former imperials and drop them off at the nearest New Republic outpost. They have no main profession, and have done jobs from bounty hunting to freelance artistry to playing in bands to protecting people or items.

Technical stuff:
- post-imperial style
- some weathering, but not excessive. Most damage is not from battles.
- light or medium armor
- decorations and colors! They池e an artist!
- doesn稚 have a lot of gauntlet weapons, probably the standard flamethrower, control pad for helmet tech, and grappling hooks. They池e still a bit of a new mando!
- pouches have detonators, knives, and small weapons. Also probably trinkets that they find, and small extra parts for quick ship or armor repairs.

Bonus info:
They ride! I致e designed basically a space horse that is d致ash痴 companion/pet/assistant/mode of transportation. Horse, with long colored fur, horns, spikes, and fins. Maybe also base anatomy changes, to make it less horse-like?

Guarlara. But pretty :D

Images of my plans incoming!

Love the backstory!
There's a creature called the Guarlara, native to Naboo, that's very similar to a horse and might work for their mount.  :<3:

Thanks! I値l go do a google search and see if that壇 work.

Edit: Guarlaras are cool! Kinda weird looking, but still cool. I can honestly imagine D致ash going places, and people look up and see this giant horned horse thing ridden by a person in fullbody armor and are just like 努hat the...

New stuff! I got bored today and decided to make a test belt pouch! Pics here https://sta.sh/254w3jb6fyj?edit=1
Nothing fancy, just some leftover fleece from an old project, but making pouches doesn稚 seem super difficult! At least, it痴 not hard until I知 working with vinyl/leather/pleather for the first time.

This pouch was 3 squares and 1 rectangle of fabric, plus a little strip for the belt loop, a bit of Velcro, and half an hour. If anyone痴 interested I値l do a tutorial-style photo set of it?

Looks like I need to move to the armor construction section soon!
I also think I need to screw around with the stomach/sides/back plate shapes, to be (eventually) approvable, comfortable, and practical.

I知 also reeeaaaally confused about how the torso armor is supposed to be for post-imperial. What痴 the shape? Do I need a chest diamond? Where does the ab plate go? I need to go hunt down some references.

I also learned today that my riding gloves won稚 work. They have a big strap with the company logo on it across the back of both hands.

Here痴 the newest concept!

I've made some design updates and such! I managed to lose the files so I'll have to hunt them down again, but after a year off I'm so excited to finally start this cosplay!!!

Here痴 the newest concept!

Sticking with a canon style armor design for the chest plates as a good call. I am not sure that your previous concept art armor design would have been approvable but this new concept art is looking great. Way to accentuate the menacing T-visor by making it pop with the white around it! Well done!

Looking forward to some real life progress on this!

thank you! i ended up making a few more slight changes, im unsatisfied with the shoulders but ill post the new version when im done with that!
in hindsight, its probably good that i waited to start on this, i was having issues with my sewing machine last year and my sewing skills have improved a lot from plushmaking!

im working on making them a bit more consistent, since the current character info i have is all over the place. it doesnt make sense for them to be an artist/bounty hunter/animal trainer really, or at least not the way i have it. im thinking they live in the outer rim, offering their services as a beast hunter/tamer/trainer (gonna apply to brigades one day!) and occasionally taking human bounties too. maybe they also make a lot of their own weapons, tack, and decorations as a way to keep their hands busy?

I like Kebiin's current design, but I do want to see the cow concept! I wonder what a Star Wars analogue for a cow is?

So the cow design did not work. Gonna attempt some slight tweaks to the current design as I’m getting started with actually making it! I cut out the shirt pattern this evening, gotta cut out the pants and start sewing :)
I might try to add some little bird details because I’m going a tad bird-crazy right now
