    Izim,

    Looking good so far.

    Try finding a belt that does not look so earth bound, it`ll increase the effect of the outfit.


    Do you plan on getting knee armor and boot armor covers (Jango style) for your outfit?


    Keep the progress pics coming.

    Re: almost done

    I think your "butt armor" needs to be flipped horizontally.

    Also:
    Get a different belt
    Hide the laces on your boots (lases, whatever)
    Trim the armor so it fits you, layer some damage on it, acrylic wash it, and find a different way of attaching it, (as said earlier) it seems to be sliding off.

    Those are just suggestions.

    Re: almost done

    Just my quick input as far as the chest armor. Just my opinion for a more squared away look, Ive mentioned this before, but the top outer corners of the chest pieces should be almost lined up with the bottom outer corners of the collar armor. Notice in the pic, I circled what I mean. Looks great though.

    Re: almost done

    to JK, yea, its the only belt i have right now, i plan on having a few, girth, small and a han solo quick draw

    to jango5204, i think i may do a wash, make it look grimy n oily

    to gcn gamer, its attached directly to the flight suit by velcro it is a bit too large for me but the reason it looks so huge is cause it isnt attached as close as it can be

    to tuba chris, thanks for the tip, i didnt line it up in the mirror like i should have but ill keep that in mind,

    to the clayster, thanks for repeating what other people say

    thanks for all the help

    No problem, you are just making common mistakes.

    You asked questions that have been answered a Million Times before, so if I repeat it, not my fault.

    You're quite welcome.

    Now work on that costume.

    Re: almost done

    Quit bickering guys, it doesn't achieve anything.
    Some good progress there Izim and some sound advice to improve it. Are you planning on adding a cod-peice? Not to mention knees ect.

    Re: almost done

    Looking good so far Bud, just a couple of adjustments like everyone said above and you'll be on your way. No first test fitting ever looks perfect, that's what they are there for. Have you sewn the velcro into the flight suit, or is it just stickied on? If you do a search on these boards there is a couple of really good pics of the vest (in your case the flightsuit) without the armour on showing where to place the velcro to ensure a nice even fit of all the torso pieces, PM me if you don;t find it and i'll email you the pics i have.

    Like Orthar said, do you plan on any leg armour at all, or leaving it as is roughly? What overall theme are you looking to achieve when it's all done?
    Correct me if i'm wrong but the current theme is maybe a scout of some sort, or a combat medic judging by that satchel bag your carrying?

    Keep up the good work, let us know of your progress

    I believe he is doing a a mando scout type. I showed him a pic on the mercs site form onesixthwarriors.com and he loved the ventilator sans helmet the light mando scout had. Probably one of the best non-helmet looks I've ever seen and definitely worth using.

    I love how the dark green sleeves go into those gloves! Do you plan to weather it any further, because you did a great job with the blaster marks, I wouldn't mind seeing some more of those. I like the big pouches too. You did a great job on it! :

    Izim and The Clayster cut it out.

    Izim, The Clayster is just trying to help.


    Both of you read this for the CoC

    RESPECT

    Treat others as you would like to be treated. Respect fellow members and their opinions. Respect must be extended to each and every member, the administrative staff included. Be polite and courteous to others and keep your messages in good taste.Disagreements are bound to happen. Approach them in a civil manner, with respect to the other person's point of view.Should you feel someone has crossed the line and is being disrespectful to you, contact a member of the administrative staff and allow them to handle the situation.If a member's family, gender, race, national origin, etc. is maliciously involved in an argument, the offending member will face an immediate ban. On a final note, respect for the opposite sex must be shown at all times.

    Re: almost done

    to vaders_pet, like i said, it was attached a bit loose, i didnt line it up in the mirror like i should, it is a bit big but i cant trim now because comicon is so close

    to othar, i do need a cod but since i cant really order anything right now, ( wont ship in time) i was going to get some sintra yesterday but ran out of time, as knee armor goes i may get some kneepads but heavy ones, like tactical kneepads, add some stuff like knives to them,

    to jodo,thanks, i think it makes up for elbow pads, which i was originally going to do, i also wanted to weather the collar, since its too clean, and the bells, since they're unmarked, and like jango 5204 suggested a paint or ink wash for the dirty effect

    to asok, no problem

    I don't suck, that would make me seem mean, not suck.

    I just gave advice in this thread, like everyone else did, and if he doesn't want advice, then he should tell EVERYONE not to post, not just me.


    I don't care if you think I "suck"
