    Dec 10, 2009, 3:21 PM - Assassin's Creed - Altair #1

    New Project:
    The hood has to be filled with a black interior to keep light from entering and the neck and back parts of it will be put on a pvc base to keep the form and snug fit at all times... and then some crate load of weathering...

    Thnx!

    Here\s the hood, padded and all. It sits as it sits, hardly changing shape, like an animated piece of cloth, pretty rigid.

    Also, theres no light shinning through it from above or the back, so it\ s pretty dark around my face in regular daylight.

    I don't know really. It's a very structured linnen/cotton blend. Works like a charm. I did had to patch all the cutting lines as it ravels pretty easily when just cut.



    weathered it, This is my final Go-sign, I think i can do this without looking like a goofball...

    well here\ s the tunic:

    Things to be done: The hood has to be leveled out so it is straight at the front, also add some equal weathering to boths sides. The bird beak of the hood has to point more to the front.

    The red sash and grey girls shirt are there to just... help framing what this is supposed to become... so that will eventually be replaced by the parts that they should be...

    well here it is:


    Also, the symbols in the publicity shots show alot more detail... yet in the game you can't make out more then just a few random black blurs. So I thought the first4figures statue was the road to go...

    The beak is pointing forward now:

    And this is the little secret behind it:


    A piece of PVC with some velcro on it is holding it in shape perfectly.

    I don't know is you were planning on making the hidden blade but I was stumbling around on the internet the other month and I found these

    Thnx people!! Dunno why the pic doesn' t show... It's clear here.

    Anyways, thnx for the heads up, but I' ve got an idea for the hidden blade... not as spring loaded, but it' ll pop in and out of it's holder with a bit of luck.

    The designs I found aren't exactly *spring loaded* but it uses a clock spring. But I'm sure your way will work just as well (do you mean grav/inirtia? I would recomend something that doesn't pop out when you don't want it too *scoff* clock spring *scoff*

    Thanks to a tutorial on youtube, check my clip to go to his channel!! I had to modify it a wee bit though, as the rail wasn' t the same, and I used a pvc blade that still has to be sanded and painted and bladiebla. This is just the bare skeleton, so it needs a hull of some sort, that can be decorated.

    erh... no, it's a guidance system for a drawer, sawed, bolted and sprinloaded after quite a bit of work.
