    Feb 17, 2010, 9:23 PM - My First Mando Design #1

    This is my first Mandalorian concept. I plan to start this project as soon as I have funds but until then, I would use my art background to get some ideas going. Criticism and suggestions, welcomed/appreciated!

    Some elements to the costume:
    -He will be based on Lee Van Cleef from "For a Few Dollars More." This is why he wears his pistol on his belly and will use a 'rifle'.
    -The color scheme is that of earth tones and an allusion to the Michigan Spartans. Mostly just because I like green and white.
    -I would like to encorporate a good share of leather on this project. Maybe even using leather gauntlets for a more 'bare bones' sentiment.
    -The pauldron on his shoulder will probably be moved to the opposing side to better coordinate with the half-cape.
    -I will have variant paint schemes, soon!

    Thanks so much!

    Leather really goes a long way to giving you a western look. I love the old west, and I use LOTS of leather with my armor to give it a more rustic and natural appearance.

    Is there anyway I could see some of that armor, Novall?
