    So.... I have a Mac that is about 9 years old and a bootleg version of Photoshop CS4. I tried to make a template by tracing over the image of the Slasher that I previously posted.
    I used the pen tool to make some paths... Unfortunately when I stroke the path the lines that it makes are pixilated.
    Also trying to scale it to full size didn't turn out very well.
    Now iff I had Illustrator this would be different story...
    I wanted to see how it would look when I printed it. Another problem... My Mac is too old and not compatible with the printer I currently have.
    Looks like I'll have to do this the old fashioned way and freehand a template.

    Maybe try Inkscape?

    I'm more of an MS Paint guy myself, but I was recently shown how to bitmap my MS paint lines in Inkscape so they become beautiful non pixelated lines. Long story short, if you can do a black and white pixely trace I can help you convert it for scaling.

    Can you post the file you've already done and maybe we can try it out?

    PerniciousDuke, I'll check out inkscape when I get the chance. Also will upload the trace that I have when I get home.

    Update news: photo dump! Started on the body armour over the weekend. Wrapped up my dummy with plastic wrap and duct tape and drew out a pattern for the base of the armour.

    Then transfered the pattern to foam and assembled the base of the armour.

    I felt that something was way off with the look. After spending 30 min looking a reference photos I realised that I had the armour follow the lines of my ribs and that made it come down too far. So I trimmed off about 1 to 2 inches.

    After that came some patterns for the fancy swirls.

    And then traced and cut the front.

    Little bit of work done tonight. Rounded out the edges with my rotary tool and then carved in the swirlies with a wood burner. 20190115_211851.jpg

    I got a little excited and slapped some. Double sided tape on it and mocked up on the base.
    Sean Anwalt and PerniciousDuke like this.

    Looking great!

    Do you plan to heat form the breast plate more? The tops of the swirls could use a little contouring to the body. Could just be the angle though.
