Must... post... SOMETHING!
So, I've been finally working on some artwork. To try and get me back into the swing of things, I've been slowly making a comeback to be active here on dA. Looking back, I never really posted much as far as my cosplay work goes. Here's some unreleased images from 2009-2010 of my initial building of my Halo 3 Scout armor, as well as the upgrade the armor went through to Version 2.
Left to right, top to bottom:
Test fitting the original pieces before starting the fiberglass process // Chest piece getting some Bondo work // Checking how the leg pieces look after being fiberglassed, making sure there is no warping
Most of the pieces after getting the resin and bondo treatment then get some primer and a sanding to check the shape // Finishing up the paint on the V1 pieces... lots of rough angles and missing any detail
The aftermath of many days sanding, resculpting, and detailing the entire suit for V2, then gets a metal base coat // Wet Paint // Everything painted and undercoat shows off that battle damage, ready for assembly.
