    I GOT A VARIANT IN PROGRESS!!

    My armor (includes cod, chest, collar, buttox, shoulder, and knee plates) is custom made from sintra and custom weathered. I made a sand trooper backpack from scratch and i am using a white turbn as a headpiece. I will be attaching the armor to a grey sweatshirt and grey pants. ( its still a work in progress i will post some pics when im done) The cod and buttox pieces dont fit me
    Ill keep ya posted (pm me),

    Ok here are some images of my progress. I created a robotic hand and also want to post some pictures of my chest armor.

    Ok here is the robotic hand.


    And here are the pics of my armor...



    Please comment, no worries about critiques I am tough. But just take into mind that THIS IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE A BOBA FETT SET OF ARMOR, I AM MAKING A VARIANT...
    Thanks,
    Trevor

    Its looking good I think you should add more wires to your glove. maybe have some loop under the metal pieces (similar to TK409's anakin hand tutorial on his website)

    Something is telling me that the glove doesn't seem like it will do, the exposed wires stick out way to far and you're just asking for trouble. I see part of the pinky all ready came off, the hot glue may not be the best choice to affix that.

    If I were you, I would run those wires under the armor so that you can only see it on the fabric of the gloves. If you run multiple wires, that would look pretty awesome.

    yes, I know. I found out about an hour after it happened, and I posted in the Heath thread already also.


    anyways, back on topic. I like the bloody weathering on the chest pieces. have you got a helmet yet?

    you should probably think about trimming down the chest and ab plates. they look disproportionatly huge on you.
