    Its been awhile since I have been active, but with the new year I came across some opportunity. With it being my last semester of senior year, I have had a lot more free time. However, the most important art is I now have the material to start building again.

    Not only do I have material but I also finally have access to a laser cutter. Its modest but it will work.

    I got all the patterns ready for the laser late last night just so I was able to cut them out today. its a nice feeling having some progress

    I got the prices all cut and packed up to go home. Thanks to Spacemeat for the awesome laser cutting and foam armor tutorials. WP_20170119_006.jpg WP_20170119_005.jpg

    Thanks for the support!

    Started the helmet last night and worked on it a little today. Progress is a little slow just trying to get my bearings back with armor making. The helmet is about a third done and I will keep progress moving WP_20170120_002.jpg WP_20170120_003.jpg WP_20170120_004.jpg

    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg I did a bit of work on my weapon. I decided instead of repainting a new design, to do a black wash and dirt wash on my magnum, while I was at it I removed the mechanic that prevented dry firing.

    I was also able to create the helmet liner to rest on my head properly.

    Been super busy this weekend! the first thing I did was add the rest of the detail to my helmet WP_20170220_001.jpg
    Next I uses entirely too much spackle to fill my gaps. I had some very rough gaps that opened up as the helmet bent so I tried to fill them as much as possible.
    WP_20170220_003.jpg

    When I first started spackling the first layer wasn't smooth so I had to go over it again with the softer stuff. Next up is to get the chest ready for laser printing, also I plan to sand and plastidip the helmet. I am still undecided on the paint colors yet though.

    That helm looks sick! I'm green with envy. I want a laser cutter. :(

    My original plan was to do a warrior and noble set up, but I am uncertain about the chest piece. I am almost done with the sanding of the helmet, It is being really finicky so I am going to work with a dremel to Finnish it up. Updates soon :D
