A lot of sewing later... sewed on the fur but needs to be trimmed back a lot, looks like a convincing hippy coat right now! Laughing

















Also makes me think of Rygel from Farscape as I just watched it all again recently! Very Happy

Beautiful work, man.

I'm pretty convinced you can replicate most any type of clothing.

Cheers dadrab! Ironically struggling a bit with the shoulder 'armour', trying something new by using 1/1 bootlace strands with a wide eyed needle since using pleather seemed like more work and studs also seemed like a messy jigsaw puzzle to try and pull off the look of the weaved armour...we'll see if it works or not.





Just started with the brown, there will be a lot more black to do...

Even more outstanding detail work.

Thanks guys! Not happy with the results though so going back to weaving real leather and pleather, just trying to get the strips cut to the correct width, thought I had but they're too wide so got to cut them all again patiently with a scalpel as they seem to be too narrow to use the roller cutter. I'll also undo all the stitching bootlace work to replace it.

Cheers guys! It's all trial and error with something unfamiliar but that's what makes it interesting to me. Got more done, might narrow the darker brown pleather strips, then I have horizontal lines to weave as well.

A bit tedious but getting there! Narrowed the darker pleather strips carefully with scissors and replaced them.

Cheers! I feel like I'm making a cross between a raffia mat and a complex Roman mosaic! I have to cut a slit in the fabric every I 'weave' a piece of leather through it, hard not to end up with just a load of leather and burlap confetti! I need to be quite strategic about each cut which is what takes time.

That shoulder cape is looking really good, he definitely seems like he has one of the most complicated outfits.

You'll get there, it looks like it'll be worth it. I doubt Asmus would go to that much trouble.

Cheers Peter! Yeah the simpler they look from a distance the more complicated they get as you take a closer look, the ones that look complicated from a distance are still bloody complicated when you get close!! affraid

Rogerbee wrote:You'll get there, it looks like it'll be worth it. I doubt Asmus would go to that much trouble.

CHEERS!

Thanks Roger! Finished it now and attaching it to his coat, makes me think of an old oilskin coat, I think he's based on an old school whaler but called a boar hunter for PC reasons. I'm sure Asmus would do the sensible production thing and sculpt it the cast it in silicone rubber or silkscreen print it with embossing etc.. Gloves next..

Thanks guys! I readjusted his shoulder armour so you can see the fur better on his right side. Started the glove armour, tiny strips of pleather being used so far and threading it through the actual gaps in the burlap material I preglued with PVA to help stop it from falling apart, sort of blocks some of the 'holes' though. The grid lines are in cm to give you an idea of scale, I'll be using at least one other colour too.

Man...That looks like some slow going, but gorgeous work all the same. They're going to look mighty fine.

This was actually way easier and faster than the shoulder armour, not having to cut each hole made a huge difference! I even made him some basic pleather gloves and repainted my Studio Series Movie Grimlock Transformer while I waited for the PVA to dry Basketball .

Cheers Peter! Went back in and added silver highlights on Grimlock, here he is transformed too..

Back on topic now, finished the gauntlets and gloves combo, the patterns smudged off, oh well.. starting the belt too, got a lot of braiding to do!!

Cheers guys! Did all the braiding and got the majority of the belt made, still need to make a bunch of tusks to use as fasteners all over his clothing including the silver capped decorative ones for his belt. Made his belt buckle too.

Thank you Roger and Peter! Sorry about the slower pace of build but I've been busy sorting out other stuff. Making a start on his boots and taken pics of how far along he is, basically still needs weapons boots and a bunch of detail work plus I'm tempted to give him his distinctive enlarged? left eye, probably axe related..

Ponti, my brain is no where you want to go! LOL! You'd be stealing everyone's trash for a start! Laughing
Having a rapid deceleration in build work getting done as I'm burnt out and need a break from LOTR related stuff but don't want to start another 1/6 project since I'd then be committed to that for ages and not get back to these guys for a while. So I'm compromising by doing a gun build I've put off for far too long that should only take a couple of weeks to do since I just ordered a nice new Bosch angle grinder to do the mods to make it a CO2 powered full blow back 30rnd pellet shooter with rifled barrel. You can see how huge it is in the pics, there's a 1/6 Dr. No for size reference; it's a full metal replica of a Barrett .50cal anti-material rifle used for taking out engine blocks, tank tracks, targets behind concrete walls etc.. at 1,500m.
As for Bifur, I've built his boots and started on his eye resculpt also resculpted his eyebrow to be more arched  as per the reference pic above, got to paint it next, and make the eyes green.

Damn I still suck at doing eyes! Even in this case where it's only one... technically not human either..oh well I'll get there eventually. Made all the tusks out of milliput (the slug looking things LOL) and started to finish other weapons like Nori's kukri based knives and Balin's glaive etc..
