    Ok so I stupidly decided to build Warden Eternal from Halo 5. As far as I am aware there are no templates for him. Im crap at 3d image software, and couldnt find any 3d image files anyway, so its done from google pics, not very game accurate, but I dont mind at this time, as long as its recognisable as Warden (y)
    The head, I started with the head, I thought it would be easiest as lots of pics of his head, big pics. I suck at freehand but i did manage to get it looking wardenlike I think lol
    Forearms were next, again freehand but quite a bit of guesswork because its hard to know how all the pieces in the pics of all all available angles, actually fit together.
    The biceps and shoulders are where Im at now, theyre not really very wardenlike but I used a lot of imagination as there are bits that go over the biceps so a lot of what you see in the pics here will be covered any way.
    Im going to be starting the back soon, and the chest, so I can figure out where the biceps and shoulders will be best attached to give max amount of freedom of movement.
    and Ive just realised Ive not uplaoded biceps/shoulders pics to pc yet so I'll update later (y) 35389371_244359683002372_439109072566878208_n.jpg 35972414_249620155809658_1386931689627844608_n.jpg 36031389_252445108860496_2002621586586206208_n.jpg 36234773_253396015432072_8782114011761082368_n.jpg 36239965_253395958765411_8353639007636160512_n.jpg 36243200_253395978765409_3074750109200678912_n.jpg 36396305_258410258263981_6962643089240358912_n.jpg 36475821_258410184930655_5576134990762082304_n.jpg 36486815_258410434930630_1021313832527593472_n.jpg 36531157_258410318263975_3009919626566959104_n.jpg 36537348_261783941259946_7234778556486647808_n.jpg 36570933_258410401597300_4039509461641986048_n.jpg 36681128_261783947926612_146686731024859136_n.jpg

    PerniciousDuke, the fact that this is a free-handed piece, saying that she has "Very good foam skills" is like saying a Ferrari is a somewhat decent vehicle. This is looking fantastic Gixk2!!!! looking forward to seeing more of your builds

    thanks guys. I did the SPNKr freehand as well, most of it, cos I couldnt find a file at the time and although I had a 3d image file, Ive no idea what to do with it other than measure lengths and angles :lol: 3D software has come a long way since my IT training in the 90s lol

    anyway, pics of bicep/shoulder. Ive added a few bits of 'my own design' as no real decent pics of that area when i build them, but Ive got some now so will see if they tie in ok with rest of build, and redo more accurate if needed.
    Its not sitting right on 'Ken' cos its not attached to him or together properly, and hes 'broader' (and prettier lol) than me -

    It really depends what Ferrari you mean, some just dont look good at all (just my opinion)

    Gixk2 that is fantastic work! I could never do that even with patterns, once again simply amaizing (just everyone's opinion)

    not managed to do much over past few days, cos trying to make a UNSC marine knife and some nades for a friend too lol but progress on under part of chest, most of which will be hidden by the 'white' parts on his armour.
    also, looks erm 'rounder' for obvious reasons - hes male and Im female, and its slipped down on Ken too as everything is just balancing on chest lol but sure you get the idea

    Don't they spend a lot of time in the shop?

    And that is not foam skills. That's down right foam prodigy.

    So is it just warden eternal or a gender swap warden eternal? That would be kind of cool! And are you going to rig it with lights?

    Would that be a pre or post-op gender swap warden? I'm confused.

    well hopefully, cos Im not that well endowed lol, by the time the white chest pieces are added, it will look like a regular (but shorter - I plan to try get to over 7ft but Warden is 16.5 ft tall) warden eternal, and yes 'he' will have lights, head already rigged (y)
