Still working on the cod piece and butt plate, as well as the knees...pics to be up shortly!
Okay, now you've raised the bar for what I have to do! >.<
Excellent work! d('-')b
Bro ... that´s awesome! Nice eye for details! Fantastic job!
Awesome job! Definately will be bookmarking this for when I do my paint up!
OK! After going to WLC (boooo), Disney World (YAY!), and the field a whole bunch of times in between, I've finally been able to get the main paint jobs done on both my cod piece and kidney plate (It's no longer a butt-plate )
Please excuse how TERRIBLE the lighting in these pictures are. We just got snowed on (again) and it was already getting dark, so the colors seem REALLY off, but you guys get the general idea
Here are a few "shot by shot" comparisons of certain details I tried to exactly (heh, nothing's EXACT) replicate from the AOSW exhibit photos.
Kidney-plate damage 1:
Kidney-plate damage 2:
Have a few more little details to include (scratches, touch ups on the yellow) and then its onto pastel rubs and weathering! Can't wait.
Take care guys.
Bro, thank you SO MUCH for taking the time to do this. This step by step will help me immeasurably in painting my armor. Much appreciated!
This looks fantastic!
great work! my cod is aosw style, but i filled the dent for mom compatibility. i've always thought the dent down there was pretty cool though. you know that it represents a real "i'm glad i had this armor on" moment.
Awesome! I've been following this thread even before I joined. This will help enormously when my armor arrives. Keep up the fantastic work!
I do like the way you did the transfer paper and tracing here...Worked out better than the helmet. Im guessing you took lessons learned and applied them here. Looks great. How did you keep from having the transfer outline on the armor after you liquid mask over it like was happening on the helmet?
When tracing the stencil onto the armor, trace on the outside of the line. Then, when you use the liquid mask, try and get it as inside the line as you can. After you airbrush, if you so happen to see a little bit of graphite transfer on your armor, it erases off real easy.
Gotcha sounds easy enough...thanks
Wow amazing! You want to paint my armor one day?!
Ponte, this turned out great brother fantastic job and I love all of the steps that you took in achieving the weathering!!!!!!
Think I'm gonna have to do my armor this way now. Great method!
Well i got to see this **** in person this past week and help fix a bolt that just didnt want to stay glued a few times and the paintjob on this had me jealous and Id like to think I did a dAng good job on mine....great work here so accurate its possible its more accurate then any other Ive seen before minus the on smudge on the decal on the chest
Get that backplate sorted out too bud...look forward to more tutorials you dont know how much this helps guys
nice work there, you're artist
It'd be a sin to wear this armor. It should be in the Smithsonian.
Really good work bro. I'm getting ready to paint mine and I'd have to say that this tutorial is going to be very helpful. I've already learned quite a bit just by glancing over it, thanks!
Really really looking forward to the next update of this, you've helped me, and I'm sure, many others get their paintjobs looking topnotch. Loved the little pointers, e.g. pencil line around the decal. Mine's painted straight on with stencils but I took a trip down the workshed and added a few bits after seeing this!
This is long done bud...it came out pretty awesome
