Well, its been a very long time since I've been active on here. Not to mention all of my PC issues have been fully ironed out, minus a few issues I'm having with my browsers but I can work around them.
Anyways, onto the business; I was beginning to run short on ideas, so I gave myself a rather daunting task. To make the iconic armor of the galactic bounty hunter, Samus Aran, finally available for the opposite gender! Mind you, there was a heavy influence from the Halo universe as well as Destiny. I wanted to be able to take the uni-sexual design and turn it into an all around, none gender specific suit. What better way to eliminate that obstacle by blending in a Halo-esque aesthetic system and armor placement? Funny enough, this very careful blend of Metroid Prime and Halo 4 had the best possible outcome. As of 3 days ago I completed the PED suit (as well as the Varia suit) both in their respectable male variants. I also made both suits so they have an optional arm canon deal, that thing isnt mandatory ya know :P but its great for authenticity!
Speaking of which, I'm sure your dyeing to see both of these variants. Given though, the Varia suit is much more Halo-esque since I wanted it to look like a "military standard" combat skin. I also had to remove the incredibly massive shoulder pads since they were heavily conflicting with the over all aesthetic of the suit and were just being impossible to work with.
I'll shut up now so you guys can look at the pretty pictures!
So there it is! Thus far, the PED suit is the only one that has been converted and modified into a foam template format. Depending on how much positive reinforcement the Varia suit gets, I may also do it as well. For now though, the suit will not be available for Pepakura since it is still in its developmental stages. I'm sure there will be many revisions of each part since going from Google Sketchup straight into Pepakura, there is always room for improvement!
I will continue to update this thread with screen shots (and potentially real pictures) of the suits over all progress.
