Everyone has potential inside of them, Devin W, of bluerealm started from CB&DT as a kid and now look at his stuff This all really gives hope to the less experienced. Oh ya BTW Thats not my armor !! But without this informational site we'd ever of started ours we'll keep everyone posted as soon as pics become available aka WIP!! 35-40% and 200+ invested so far we had to redo the chest plate due to size and flexability issues!SpartanForever said:UGH!!..............................ok its good. (dammit i want a suit)......... *goes and cries for 5 hours*...... No but really that was sick your armor looks amazing for cardboard.
Fankly Im tired of you always analytically bagging on peoples work like your some high n mighty acclaimed biulder, and if you are have some respect alot of poeple do great work here, we don't need you to state the obvious!!!!! Pep is great nobody said is wasn't!! we've made pep armor as well. Cardboard is great, any person willing to showcase their work to the public is awesome. You need to stop that!! Thank you!AoBfrost said:Looks good, but it's the same person as before, but this time just a slideshow, after seeing the slide show I'm not as impressed in the detail, but for making it out of cardboard sheets he did good.
But like I always say.
Cardboard armor isnt better than pepakura, both are materials, your suit is only as good as how you use them.
edit, watched till the end, and admit the only th ing accurate and super detailed is the torso.....and the ending, omg...he needs clothes on.
I totally agree and thank you Aob for your reply!! Theres truth to that.. I hope all take that piece of advise into consideration when dealing with certain materials such as those .AoBfrost said:The only reason I constantly bring that up is because I've read to a point where I myself was tired of reading others say "pep has no detail, cardboard is better and faster" I'm not against cardboard, but when people look down on pepakura because of their impatience to cutting out and folding several peices, they look for an alternitive and rush at that too.
If you give your time and heart into something it will come out nice like this guy's suit on youtube, but if you rush, your suit isnt going to be chiefy at all, same for pepakura.
I could make a frame out of pepakura and cardboard and both would be detailess, but then I could go and cut more peices from my own creation and manually add the detail, then both types of material become a detailed suit.
AoBfrost said:Did you notice his feet peices were rounded? They didnt look chiefy, but they were painted good, I wish he had some sort of high resolution gallery for his armor, so we could see it for real.

P.S im not trying to say that pepakura builders arent artistic or creative but I believe this takes more imagination and talent.
