They’re coming out nicely!
For the gauntlets, to smooth the finish and the last remaining print lines just a bit, it might be a good idea to sand with super high grit and do another coat of paint before you clear coat.

For you boots, they’re turning out pretty well.  Once you clean up the white edges of the material and the glue spot on the finish, they’ll look super close to references!

Great job!

Will work more on the gauntlets. Thank you!
The boots didn't end up working out.

Got my belt and pouches in. Super pretty and makes me want to do a clean kit just so I don't mess it up.



Thanks to Siyrn for sharing her color secret for my bucket, I have my colors picked out but waiting for a new print. I also got my visor in Fire from Kalevala Visors on the forum. Don't mind the grey, that's actually from where I pulled off the tape but the color shown would be seen if I weathered  ;D




I scratched the flight suit I did and decided to go with a darker color. Don't remember if I mentioned it earlier but it was brought to my attention that blues and purples are used as highlights for black in comics. So, I'll either go with black or pewter. This is a swatch of pewter. Any thoughts on the flight suit color?

Thanks, I appreciate it. I'm taking my time and making sure she comes out accurate even when working with someone for a commission.

So, I've been working on the waist down. I had to buy a different color in scrubs and alter them as well wait for the boots to get delivered. Decided to go with a black flight suit, it'll definitely make the color pop.

As for armor, this is where I am with the leg pieces.

Reference:

I've already shortened the knee by 1/4" and it sits a little higher. In the process of fixing the boot armor piece before I mirror this for the other leg and update the thread.

Also working on doing bondo work with the bucket. I had to get it reprinted a tad bit larger.

You’re on the right track! The boot cover and bottom lame look like they also have rivets. Keep up the great work!

Looks good, Nice work with the armor, wish we has more lower body images to Tes, would make things easier  ;D
The flight suit is my concern, Charcoal grey is the color I would go with for accuracy.

keep up the great work!

Yes, will definitely add the rivets once I finalize the pieces. In the photo, it's just a paper template. Although even the 3mm Sintra doesn't sit as nicely as paper lol.

I chose to switch to a black flight suit because it was brought to my attention how highlights for black are depicted in comics. Her highlights are blue and purples, like superman's hair. I can easily change the color again though if that's strongly recommended, I've only altered the pants so far.

I would recommend the charcoal grey, for the accuracy, I know how difficult it can be to bring a comic to life, and you’re doing such a wonderful job so far, I wouldn’t want to see that be the one detail we overlooked.
You’re doing a great job!

Consider it done  :D and thanks

This is the grey I have, compared to black. Would the shade pass or should it be darker? Don't mind the hair. I work in an animal clinic  ;D


Also, My vest is in the works, commissioned, but wanted to see what everyone thinks of the color choices.
These are the fabric colors on hand. I was going to use the duckcloth as a base for the vest to make it more sturdy. Brown on the left and the red one is more orange.

I was thinking of adding this color as the top color. It's more yellow in the picture from the light because it has a sheen to it but it's more of a brown. Lighter than the duckcloth brown color in the pic above. I would say it's darker than cardboard box color.


Any thoughts before the vest starts being made?

I do like that grey for the flight suit, another option is color stripping the black, you can try that if you want to explore that possibility. Im good with the colors for the vest. I really like that yellow! :)
