    Star fox arwing build (Satchmo III)

    ENTRY #08: INITIAL SMOOTHING Some family stuff and the Viper Bravado squad kept me from the arwing for a few months. Back in March I applied resin to the exterior of the cardboard and this weekend I spread on and sanded off bondo on the wings and fuselage. I primed everything including the...

    HALO ODST Diorama - New Mombasa

    Holy cow that stuff is pretty. LASO is short for legendary, all skulls on...Halo's high difficulty game mode which requires serious effort from the player.

    Rogue Helmet (H3)

    Really clean work, keep it up! Though, Carolina's helmet is more of teal or aqua color or something like Tucker's though.

    HALO ODST Diorama - New Mombasa

    It's awesome you're still planning out and working on this project. It's definitely cool and your skill and patience is basically LASO. Looking forward to seeing more and for parts to get pulled together.

    TANGENTIAL ASIDE... Viper Bravado 4 takes on first patrol. I animated a walk cycle for the #4-V2 rig. The 32 frame GIF will keep patrolling the grayscape until the end of time. At the end of last year I made a goal to 3D print a crouching SPI figure a la the cover of Ghosts of Onyx. At the...

    The V2 team smiled for the birdie. After finishing the #2 helmet on Saturday, many hours were spent learning more about materials (like combining multiple UV maps to create detail decals over generated materials instead of flat paint everywhere) and rigging/posing models better in blender to...

    ADD UPDATE (REACH CONCEPT #2-V2 HELMET PEPAKURA)... Viper bravo team is fitted up. The #2-V2 helmet has been uploaded below and at the beginning of the thread. I'm psyched to have been able to improve upon the V1 versions and I feel the new helmets aren't too far removed from something one...

    Pardon the double post (I don't think I can post two GIF files in a single post). I took WIP snap-shots during the modeling of #3-V2 to be able to put together the following time-lapse. There were several modeling sessions over the course of the last week (bits here and there) and I finished up...

    ADD UPDATE (REACH CONCEPT #3-V2 HELMET PEPAKURA)... The #3-V2 helmet has been uploaded below and at the beginning of the thread. I see elements of the pilot and the EVA helmet in this one. The shape and/or angle of this one is a bit atypical and I think it would benefit from a neck-seal at the...

    ADD UPDATE (REACH CONCEPT #4-V2 HELMET PEPAKURA)... The #4-V2 helmet has been uploaded below and at the beginning of the thread. Part of the reason I like working with the concept art (besides how awesome it is) is that it doesn't contain very intricate detailing and I think this aligns well...

    Group Project: Reach Army BDU (Bucket to Boots)

    It looks like image format files are needed. Below is from PureRef's support page.

    Group Project: Reach Army BDU (Bucket to Boots)

    I can't offer any suggestions concerning tab management, but as far as referencing concept art have you heard of the PureRef program (LINK). It allows you to dump all saved images onto one canvas that's easy to navigate (pan, scroll, zoom). It's nice to be able to wheel around one window...

    ADD UPDATE (REACH HELMET CONCEPT #5-V2 PEPAKURA) The beak on this bucket is something else. V2 of concept helmet #5 has been uploaded below and at the beginning of the thread. The PDO file contains a very simple texture image in lieu of solid colors which, just like the solid colors, can be...

    That thing you’re working on looks fairly rad, CaminusPrime! Sincerely, thanks for sharing and I hope you guys like them. I’d consider it an honor if you kept yours as the centerpiece of your kitchen table for 18 months or so. I’m stoked you were able to print them successfully. Do you think...

    ADD UPDATE (REACH HELMET CONCEPT #1-V2 PEPAKURA) I'm referring to the second version of the first Reach concept helmet as #1-V2 (and will use the same naming convention for the remaining concept helmets). The completed concept #1-V2 helmet (for pepakura) has been uploaded below and at the...
