Thanks ill go with the egg shell like u said. I need good looking armour with not as much detail as Halo Mjolnir because it like the flat surfaces I got a good idea, Its going to be flat surfaced so that its going to look like a current day stealth aircraft.Eternal said:That sound sweet man I was ondering when someone was gonna make a Black armor.
There are quite a few different options you could go with when it comes to black.
- Metalic black ( some fine metal flake in the paint )
- Plain Glossy Black ( like Chevy Suburban )
- Flat black ( if you are gonna go flat black you need to get good flat black paint or it could be pretty tricky to get a smooth even tone. ) You would want it to look like the new batman suit " Batman Begins "
- Semi gloss/ Egg shell black ( lik flat black but has a little bit more shiny to it but not quite the reflective black you would get with a gloss.
- Peal black ( kinda like metalic but it has a deeper richer look to it )
- and then Scion make a paint color that is metalic black with very fine flake in it that is slightly colored in it.
Your choice all depends on what feel you want this suit to have. If i was going purely from your title, Silent Shadow, I would go with the Egg shell / semi gloss black. And for the visor on the helmet i would use a black tinted motorcycle visor.
The last thing you need to know about black is, It is the least forgiving color. In other words, your armor better be flawless. Any little dimples varyation in the surface texture, sandpaper scratches, dents, any inperfection will show like a lit match in a dark room. I know this from my experience in Auto body repair and customizing. i painted my truck black the first time i painted it, and i came out sweet but i asure you i spent weeks doing just the final paint prep sanding to get it perfect.
I do not want to discourage you or scare you away from black in fact i encourage you to take on such a sweet project, but i just want you to know what you are getting into before you start so that your end product will be that much more awesome.
Just finished concept its very detailed you can see a blue reflection on the visor and yes im making that Rocket LauncherEternal said:sounds awesome man, i cant wait to see some pics.
What type of armor is it going to be?
or..... An Artfull rendition that elaborates the armor to give it that feel of a more advanced armor "TOP SECRET" unofficial. if you are wanting to creat an armor that is something created by oni, it would most likely me modeled after the MJOLNIR armor but with slight variations.
Do you have any ideas, Sketches of what you plan to make?
Yes lots of minor and a few major Ect im going to add a Halo Wars spartan metal sholder plate and put this on itEternal said:Are you going to make any alterations to the armor? like minor things. for exaple like my fist that i created. it has minor alterations such as the knuckle armor/ vents.
Ill write a story about the Spartans life in the Halo-verse because hes in Section 3 ONI http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/Oni and is a demo expert using the only set of PROJECT:SLIENT SHADOW armour hes capable of destroying entire rebel bases using C-12 danger packs sealed in a shell of C-7 Foam. His weapons of choice are a modified M19-B SAM ML and 2 Combat knivesEternal said:Very cool ;-)
