These are sweet! How much would it be for something like the belt you made for Etodyc O'gal?

you sure do awesome work vod!

what is the weight/ thickness of the leather used, if I might ask?

Most all of my pouches I use 3-4 oz vegetable tanned tooling leather.  3-4 oz is about the thickness of a quarter on average, and you are able to tool and dye it.  The holster bodies and some heavier pouches I use a hide that's about 8-9 oz, which is about an 1/8th of an inch thick on average.  The belt blanks are about the same thickness.

So it's been a loooong time since I updated this thread.  Been a little while since doing some major leather work, but I finally finished and sent off a commission to a member "across the pond," as they put it, that I've been working on for a while.

Full Rav Bralor leather gear set up.  Leather shoulder pads, gear belt, holsters, thigh straps, a rope girth belt, and pistols I sculpted and made a mold of.  The request and goal of this build was to match the tom hodges style artwork as close as possible.  The pistols were sculpted to match the artwork as best i could.  I had to figure out how many pouches there were on the belt and what sizes they were, modifying my existing pouch templates.  It was also a challenge trying to decide from a cartoony drawing what was a crease, what was a panel line, etc.  As with everything I do, I try to make sure the pouches are functional.

The person who commissioned me for it is happy with it, and now that it's in her hands I can show the product here.

Love your work.

this thread has given me some great ideas :) (Me runs to find a pen and paper to start plaining a belt of my own.)

I may be looking for a commission from you at some point. I'm still in the planning stages of my armor, but I absolutely LOVE your work :D

Another belt I finished up.  In the for sale section right now.  Black belt with some scribed line details.  Pouches and holster are riveted onto the belt.  The pistol is one of my Tom Hodges style pistols.
