LOL :lol Ya'll are crazy...:b
of course we are... wouldn't be us otherwise! lmao
Ya imagine if we were boring! :P
quick bump... Lev'ika I want to see your armor ner vod!
well if you wanna see the same picture i could :/ havnt made any progress sadly. Stupidly busy with exams around the corner and i have to finish an IA project in the next week and if i dont i dont get a credit :/
dude... that sucks! I'm kinda bored at work right now... they don't have much for us to do here at the moment, I start training again Feb 1 tho so I'm sure I'll be busy again... I'm just tryin' to get what I can done and fast! lol BTW... check out my thread!
just did ;) lol
yeah saw that
Well guys, i hate to say this but im pretty much set on this. I am going to put my helmet away. I really dont like the way it turned out and im just going to start over.. maybe come back to it later and fix it up, maybe idk
Im just sad cause so much money went into this, and it turned out pretty junky in my mind. Anyways thank you guys for helping me along the way, and im sorry i couldnt show you guys something worth the time it took me
but seriously, you guys mean a lot to me! Ill still be on to check stuff until i start (if i do) my next project. Im currently in search of a job
hey Lev'ika do me a favor... pop up a few pics of the bucket and let me have a look at it... I'm not real good at makin the things but I can usually tell what's wrong with it maybe help figure out how to fix it. To be honest... from what I see in the older pics, the buy'ce doesn't look all that bad ner vod.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!you were so close yeah post some pics man lets see how bad it is
dude from what I can tell from the earlier pics... all it really needs is some paint and a visor. I mean seriously, it doesn't look bad at all
theres no difference from the older pics. But im seriously tired of looking at it. Its just not proportioned well
hey it looks fine to me ner vod, once you paint it and get a visor in there it will look different to you, honest! lol I suggest you take one more shot at it... paint it up and let's see how it looks then, I think you'll like how it'll turn out with a few layers of paint on it.
Totally!!! Dont give up on it Lev'ika!!! Put some paint on it!!! It ALWAYS looks better when painted...
alright i guess ill give it a try... gotta get through the next 2 weeks first tho
hey Lev'ika u take ur time ner vod... just remember to check in every now and then, let us know how u're doin... ok?
will do! how could i forget you guys?
And there's no way you could forget us...scarred for life I think...;) :b
lmao yeah that's probably pretty close to the truth!
haha come on! u know i love you guys! in a manly sortta way... if that just didnt make it sound worse... HAHAHAHAH
is someone singing "it's raining men" :lol jk
I was always told in art class, if you're frustrated, walk away, get a cup of coffee and walk back refreshed, you usually spot immediately what you have to do.
Pop a coat of primer on your bucket as the grey really helps you to spot the imperfections, or realise that something looks good.
Remember, it took me nearly a year to perfect the mold for my helmet castings, so it's not a question of getting it right first time.
It should be a labour of love though, so if it's getting to you, give it a break and come back, you'll probably get more done that way :)
alright.. thanks Saz (you always know what to say dont you) :lol anyways i finished my midterms but im still gonna wait a bit to continue because midterms made me realize how slack ive been and i really need to pick up my grades *bleh* lol
he he I think we all know that feeling lev'ika
whoa the new background looks sweet!
lol u're funny Lev'ika... where'd all my vode go?
Still here ner vod!!! :cheers
wow.... im gone for a couple o months and all of the sudden u got 15 pages! awesome work ner vod!!
thanks man :)
yeah how's school goin Lev'ika?
passed all my classes! im so happy! lol the new semester is a fresh start, but the math is already stressing me out :/ oh well. I finally pulled out the helmet yesterday and still wasnt very happy with it. Im just gonna paint it and see how it goes
Sweet! And don't worry about the math class. Just punch it into submission.
he he u'll be fine ner vod, how about some artwork to take your mind off of it? lol
hahaha we'll see, we'll see
****, I feel like I missed a lot ever since i started playing halo 3 online again
he he u probably have!
good news everyone! I got everything painted!!! I know ur probably expecting a picture right now but that will have to wait due to the fact my computer has quit on us... It's a ggod thing I can access this site over my iPod. The wireless still works thankfully. Pictures in due time :/
SCORE!!!! Can't wait to see it, bro.
thanks.. I'm going to try and hook my camera up to my laptop later today (finally got that working) and post some pics :D. Oh and I still don't have the tan paint.. Can't seem to find any so I'm kinda lost there
here they are.. please be nice (cause i know its not great)
heres the first layer (black)
second layer (red trim)
i still need to dirty it up and get the tan on there. It looks decent when its by itself but once i put it on it looks terrible.. i guess this one was just a good learning experience. I really need to use cardstock instead of plain paper next time!
oh and i got these for christmas :D
Lev'ika I'd pass that buy'ce... that looks pretty darn good! Now all u need are your visor and jaing eyes and your set! lol
thanks... I have the killstripes on now with only a small ammount of difficulty. I know I'm going to have a hard time with the jaig eyes.. Not sure what a a good way to do it is, any ideas?
Levi, I LIKE IT!! Your bucket looks like you've been through hell and back, I hope the armor looks as beat up, it'll give your Mando a hard a$$ look ;)
thank you so much! it means the world to me!!
oh, and would a dark stain be a good way to go to add a little bit of a dirtier look to it? if not what are some other ideas?
you could use charcole (?SP) pencil and sand it into a little pile and rub the dust into cracks and crevases (?SP)
You can also use shoe polish and rub it on and wipe it off, it'll fill the little imperfections nicely and give it a carbon burn look.
Hey Lev'ika for the Jaing Eyes you may want to print them off, cut out a stencil and use that ner vod
that is what I was going to do but I dong know how to keep paint from seeping underneath the stencil :/ and thank for the idea adonian :D
Nice! You are one beat up mando for only being a sophomore. ;) Been getting into fights at school? :P
they didnt stand a chance, hahaha
ok guys i dirtied it up a bit with charcoal dust and i am about to put some shoe polish in the crevices and such.... wish me luck
Oya ner vod! lol I expect stencils would work tho, just tape down the outer edges.
looks good vod =)
thanks man :)
ZZZZZZZZZZTTTTTTTTttttttt CRACK!! more pics!! :lol
Osik! A'd'ika you dikutla chakaar! lol put that thing away! lmao W/ Lev'ika... u have to hold out a lit thermal detontator! lmao jk jk I agree w/ A'd'ika, more pics Lev'ika more pics!
BTW Lev'ika... been doin' any sketching lately?
sorry guys.. been busy for the past week! but anyways i did start one but i couldnt quite capture the feel i was going for so im going to try again later. To understand it a little its basically my mando walking into the distance with a death watch helmet up close. Not sure quite how to explain...i guess u guys will just have to wait ;)
I hate waiting...;) :b
yeah me too... like waiting on weather... grrrr...lol
Now where did I leave that thermal Detonator... Ah here it BOOM..................
yeah I know I have a few flashbangs laying around here somewhere... *BANG!* lol Ok maybe a thermal...
hahaha! im trying to find tan paint.. its not easy to find
Walmart or sporting goods stores... look for the Krylon Ultra Flat Camo colors, they have a really good sand tan paint that actually looks good when it's sprayed on.
Krylon Khaki is another good one...walmart carries that colour. :thumbsup
Alright thanks guys! I'm headin to the city so we'll se what I find
Hey, I'd be proud of that; I wanted to make my own custom helmet, but caved and spraypainted a one-piece Jango helmet (Which, I might add, is several years old, and barely fits). As it stands, I'm waiting on it to dry tonight, but I should probably just sleep and begin work again tomorrow. Speaking of helmets, anyone know a good helmet I could buy from somewhere? The local Wal-Mart yielded no luck, and I'm looking into a welding cap from Lowe's if possible, but still...
Ah, time to stop ranting and get some sleep.
alright guys.. i ended up using the krylon khaki because i couldnt find anything else. not quite sure how i can make the range finder now
*chants* pictures pictures pictures
yeah Lev'ika lay it all out and snap a pic so I can work on some patterns for ya.
My Greetings everyone.. sorry for the lack of updates. Been busy job searching so i can have the money to supply this hobby. :) lol
Well Ive got the job (not very pleasureale but im making 10.50 an hour) beefarming should turn out to be interesting ;)
anyways ive got paint basiclly finished, i just need another coat on the back and im still trying to figure out a cheap way to make a rangefinder.. any suggestions?
I will hold back on pictures until i have the visor and rangefinder on. Thanks for being so understanding.. I hope :P
Uh oh...understanding? If Adonian sees this...;) :b :lol
Rangefinder stalk: scrap cardboard build, resin dip (X2), bondo coat. do the resin dip half at a time so it can dry &c. That's the cheapest way to do it. Otherwise you can get some scrap aluminum and cut it out of that, works really well, that's what I use.
Rangefinder cap: use the WOF temps, posterboard build (tape on outside), fill with bondo, let it dry and then peal posterboard off leaving just a bondo centre. :)
Glad to see you back ner vod.
thanks vod :D unfortunatly i need to wait for my first pay check.. one more week!! I will buy some more resin and i can get to work
adonian nothing! Ol Kal will get after ya! lol It's understandable ner vod, I've been SLAMMED at work lately and it's about to get worse... busy time of year, good weather means lots of flying! lol
btw... I kinda need to know what you want me to do as far as design work goes. Oh yeah, it's nice to see u're still alive! lol so nice of you to finally check back in! lmao jk jk
lol Im thinking some sort of sharp edgy designs.. But not too complicated
copy all... I have a flight in about an hour, but I'll make sure to work on it when I get a chance.
talked to levi on facebook he said he will be back posting very soon
cool, I still owe him a graphic design for his armor... real world's kickin' my shebs right now. I've been so busy I haven't even had time to pick up my sketch pad!
his parents took the internet away so he pass
Hey everyone!! Well im back lol
wb vod =)
suc'uy gar ner vod. So u're still alive my brother. lol I'll get to work on ur design pattern ner vod, I've just been so busy. This whole flying thing takes a lot of time. lol
thanks vod.. i completely understand the whole busy thing lol
btw the star wars concert was awesome!! Once again its proven that the star wars community is super friendly and warm!
