Long time lurker, first time poster. And when I say 'long time lurker' I mean like a couple years worth of lurking. I've seen a lot of TDH armors completed I've been here so long. If the internet was High School then TDH would be that hot guy in math class I've been secretly crushing on since Junior High.
I've been wanting to make a set of armor for a long time. I either didn't have the money, time, or the means to do it. The fire got burning once again though after a late night tablet sketch:
Now, we're just going to ignore any bad anatomy, stray lines, or the general scribbly-nature of this picture >_>. Like I said... late night... like 4:30 in the am. Particularly that poncho that has no definition of shape and clearly shows my total lack of regard for fabric folds :love.
Anyways, I thought the armor design was cool and felt like it was a shame that I would never really be able to do anything with it. Till I figured out that I should just make some armor.
As I said, I've been wanting to do this for a while now, I was just too worried about coming on these boards and looking like a doofus because I might have silly questions. Either way, I want to do this and I'm asking for your guys/gals input. Think of this as me finally getting the nerves to ask TDH out to the Prom.
Not sure what this character would be, either a sniper or a scout of some sort.
Can you tell I like the idea of bandages/wraps? >_>. I figured it would add some layers to the armor while still giving it a slim silhouette.
The poncho is an additional thing that I may or may not do.
As I'm looking at this I'm also realizing there's a lot of other things I'd like to add... And to do a ref for the back of the armor because there's some stuff going on back there that I haven't drawn.
Either way, you all get a rough idea of what I'm thinking. So... lay it on me, what do you think?
