    Destiny - Phoenix Strife - Foam Unfold - Entire Suit Download

    Good morning! I finally finished doing all the retopology in Blender for this model and have unfolded the entire suit into foam templates. I purposely left out the small details in the armor because templates aren't needed for it. For the legs, I put the templates there for the shin part of the...

    Destiny - Phoenix Strife - Unfold Opinions

    Good morning! I noticed a massive lack of Destiny peps for foam or paper. The ones I do find are never an entire suit, just a weapon or helm here and there. I decided to learn Blender and did a complete Retypology of the Strife helm to do an unfold in Pepakura Designer. I've always worked in...

    To go along with my Combat Evolved Marine cosplay, I'll be making the assault rifle from the same game - a classic combo. I've started to draw the template for it based off a screengrab, trying to take into account the perspective view: Although while making it I had one question: where is...

    Hello, is this in the right section? :) Woohoo I won a $200 voucher from a cosplay supply, er, supplier. Before ordering some foamy goodness I wanted to ask what are the generally accepted foam thicknesses best used for an ODST (except helmet which I've 3D printed)? I've done some trawling...
