    Here we go again...

    The title says all. I'm starting ANOTHER custom job. lol.

    My vode have their armour moving along. One of em is almost done, and the other needs more work, but doesnt really want to work on it right now, so we will let it sit for now till he wants to work again.

    Anywho, this set will replace my first set (which has turned into one of my bro's set of armour). I plan on fixing some of the flaws that were apparent in my first set. I have done some preliminary work, and have asked Alpha and Kal'ika to do a sketch of their take on this armour, and I have done one also (heaven knows how long it's been since I used watercolour paints last...). Here are the drawings of mine:

    Front:

    Front (soft parts):

    Rear:

    Rear (soft parts):

    And my humble watercolour of the final product as I envision it:


    Tell me what ya'll think! This is gonna be a nice slow build (I'm gonna take my sweet time on it).

    That looks really cool ner'vod! I cant wait to see the start of it! I had a deasiavue(sorry spelled wrong..) moment when I looked at you shins. The gold piece is almost the same shape that I have on my gauntlet, lol! But I hadn't shown it to anyone. Everyone seems to be starting to use that double shoulder thing, where the shoulder bells are twisted up more. But they look cool so why wouldn't we?
    I'm hoping that gun is the awesome big gun in your avatar, you need to build that gun!

    Wish i had drawing skill like that.

    The concept is great, and the watercolour looks pretty neat too. What deadly, fearsome weapon is that?

    Re: Here we go again...

    Thanks guys!

    @Nevu-
    Yeah, my paudron style shoulders really limited movement in my arms, so I'm gonna try this (Demagol has a set like this and he has great range of movement). It still has the protection level of the other type (especially with the bisep plates. Why doesnt Fett have those?!?) and is easier to wear.

    @Pacx-
    That gun is a random series of mistakes that came out looking way better than I thought. I probably will not be using a weapon like that (The big gun in my avatar...).

    Kal'ika, that'd be great! Thanks vod!

    Re: Here we go again...

    Alright, so I was lazy so far today, and decided that I didnt want to go outside in the sweltering heat and build armour, so I stayed inside and did a little drawing:




    So yeah...just so I can say I did something.

    Re: Here we go again...

    I would probably not use the pattern in the other cheek and I think it would be great if you continued the pattern all the way down the left side of the armour.

    That would look so sweet!
