    First Attempt at a Mando

    So, after hours of looking around and researching. At some point within the next decade, I'm going to make a custom mandolorian. Probably from scratch, with metal and other such products.

    Now these pictures are just rough drafts. I know they suck so don't be mean. I didn't use very many references, and ...i haven't finished drawing his weapon yet. So you can understand these pictures, to avoid questioning, I'm aiming for a sniper. Thus he has the large should pauldron, and the larger knee cap on one side. The cloak I just like.

    note: I have not finished detailing my paint design yet. Colors will be Crimson, black, silver, white,......weathering... maybe alittle gold. But I need to make a patter on him, so he's not just another Boba/Jango wannabe that's colored differently.

    Hope you like it!





    Much more editing and details to be added.

    Here's of a rough sketch of his sniper rifle.




    more to come. I need more angles and such.





    Hmmm.... I should have made the shin longer on the right side. Also the kukri is alittle big.... tone that down alittle....... ****... and where's the jet pack... :roll:

    Nice sniper concept too.

    Like the design. I'm guessing that the large shoulder piece is to gaurd your face while sniping? Either way, you're a **** good artist.

    Correct sir! I need to fine tune it though, it just looks like a sheet of metal, atm.

    Here's more



    Maybe some leg armor?

    Re: First Attempt at a Mando

    your design looks pretty cool. I think some leg armor would be a good idea. Maybe shins and thigh plates, maybe just shins

    Re: First Attempt at a Mando

    That last pic is really cool. I like the big shoulder armor poking through the cloak. It makes me think of the collar armor a jouster would have worn to protect his neck.

    Re: First Attempt at a Mando

    Agreed, some sort of integrated head protection. Good idea. I've been considering adding similar things to my armour design, to prevent being Jango'd... I agree though, leg armour is good. A few plates along the legs, as an extra precaution.

    Re: First Attempt at a Mando

    Here are basic color schemes.

    This was my first idea. Pretty basic. I think it's my favorite too.
    1
    This was just suggested by my girlfriend.
    2
    This is my second favorite, I think.
    3
    This last one I was just thinking of Clone Troopers, when I colored it.
    4

    Please excuse the faded colors, my scanner is terrible. They look much better in person.

    Re: First Attempt at a Mando

    Note, I did not want to color the weathering. That would take a long time and would be ridiculous. I do want to make a definitive blaster scar on the head, and two or three on the shoulder pauldron. If that gives you guys a better visual.

    Re: First Attempt at a Mando

    You gonna make your knees and shins one piece or two? IMHO with your design, a once piece rig might look really cool!

    It's one piece. The knees are attached to the shins.

    Re: First Attempt at a Mando

    really cool design; I like your first color scheme the best, but I think that might be because I reminds me eerily of this guy from Mercs whose name I can't remember atm

    Re: First Attempt at a Mando

    Liking the first design the best personally. Just like the look. But yeah, the shoulder pauldron should be dinged up a good bit I'd say, what with it protecting a sniper.

    Re: First Attempt at a Mando

    I'd say scheme #1 with cape from scheme #4 ... with a matte finish on the paint

    Re: First Attempt at a Mando

    i like the first scheme the best but a quick question, wouldn't the cape catch on fire from the jet pack or is it fire proof?

    I've gotten that alot. I did use the Halo rifle as a reference, but I changed enough of it to be my own model. the ammo clip is in a different spot, the scope is very different, and the gun's color is undecided.

    Tal Greyheed. Although the white stripes on his dome slant away from each other. I don't know why, but I automatically knew who you were talking about.

    I'm actually digging the last design. I really like the brown jumpsuit with the red and white armor.

    1

    Kindly refrain from using this first option since it looks pretty much like an exact copy of the armor I've been wearing since 2003...


    I vote for option #3 since I think the chest plate markings are a cool set up and I haven't seen anyone with markings like that.
