Well, here's my take on the ESB gauntlets.
EDIT: 9:30 EST Jan 27,2003
So here's my right gaunt. I'm not quite as happy with it as I was with my left. Some of my black just looks a bit too streaky for my liking so . . may end up doing it again. GRRRR.
But, here it is submitted for your criticism. It's missing the gaunt darts which I will HOPEFULLY have in the next week or so. But, does have some nice LED's in the whipcord. And just for some added depth, the white on the "top" of the whipcord . . for those who care, is actually a piece of trimmed visor that came with my movie sized helmet. Seemed to be the right thickness for the job!
The pics are taken in my bathroom (was hoping different light might help the colour come thru--it didn't) . . . and I've tweaked them in photoshop to TRY and get the colour closer, but, some of the detail is lost now. Can't win'em all.
Let me know what you think!
I know for you accuracy sticklers, there should be a seam where the top and bottom "connect" on the flamethrower side but, I couldn't get it to look right so . . I took this approach, and I happen to like it better so . .
None of the pics (flash or without) really give a good shot of what the colour is really like, but, I think it's pretty dang close.
For those who care, the colour is Armor Coat Alpine Green.
Anyways . . . comments and criticism is very much welcome, show me no mercy!
(and yes, I know there's no wires coming from the flamethrower . . it's not permanently attached yet!
Thanks for looking guys!
