Creation Station / Some of my doodles
« on: March 21, 2012, 08:52:55 PM »
Every once in a while, I have quiet end to my day at work in the office. The result is a case of boredom where I start at looking at things to draw on my notepad. This seems to be an occurrence when I work overtime, so I may put more in here once in a while when I get those moments, aright now these are the few that I've done.

Berserk Merchandise / Berserk "Dawn and Darkness " Watch
« on: February 10, 2012, 05:36:47 PM »
I've seen this watch mentioned in the anime section, but have yet to see anyone here who has purchased one and thought I'd share some close up images and thoughts.

I've been wearing the watch for the past day and it's proven to be of decent quality and very comfortable, if a little weighty. The details on the watch are very neat, specifically the etched image of Zodd on the back (which is unfortunately hidden more often than not) and including one detail not shown in the production photos of Guts' helmet on the poppers that are holding the watch to the strap. I've tried taking a close up shot of the poppers, but there's only so much details I could get (4th picture down)

Whilst the watch is good quality, I would avoid wearing it when you're particularly active, doing sports etc. As the weight of the watch could put a good amount of strain on the pins holding it to the strap that they could end up breaking.

Either way here's some pictures  :serpico:

Creation Station / SqueakyJoe's Creations

Not too long ago one of my friends made me some custom Berserk Trainers and showed me something else Berserk related she made today that I thought some of you might find cool. It's a simple concept using a polystyrene halloween skull, but a very neat idea:

She's currently attempting to join the forum (I've informed her to send a direct E-mail to have her account registered) as she is also drawing something of a fanfic at the moment that I had a glimpse of. I think it looks pretty good, and could be considered an alternative take on how the story could have progressed. I'm hoping she can make it here to share it.

Creation Station / Some rather nice custom trainers for my Birthday
« on: August 29, 2011, 06:56:08 PM »
A friend of mine, who I recently introduced to Berserk is very much into her artwork, so she decided to give me a nice little present in the form of these trainers for my Birthday:

So, next week there's four slots available at one of the bigger rock clubs in the UK and I'm in the running to have a 30 minute DJ set there, however they seem to be taking this odd voting approach via Facebook 'likes' to decide which four are chosen. It's a good opportunity for me to get my foot in the door and be a regular, but the only way to do it is to make sure I'm there.

I was wondering if any of the SK regulars may be so kind as to vote for me to be among the top tier and give me a helping hand? If you're kind enough to do so I'll give you a virtual cookie and a LOT of gratitude.

If you're prepared to vote, then like the comment made by me (Saucy Jez) here: and I would be eternally grateful.
NOTE: You may have to like the group before placing your vote.

Alternatively, if this goes against any of the forum rules and must be removed or moved into another thread, then please do so. I'd rather not upset anyone.

Creation Station / Black Swordsman - on a bit of a budget
« on: February 23, 2010, 01:01:59 AM »
Okay, I've decided to start work on something that I have been meaning to do for a while now and that's a complete Black Swordsman outfit from the ground up using easily obtainable materials. Of course some people will probably come along in here and criticise by telling me I should be using different materials etc, but that kind of defeats the object. I have no intentions of this outfit coming across as a horrible representation but I'm not about to spend a LOT of money getting it 100% faithful with materials.

So far I've made the following using some basic items by scaling up from my recently obtained Black Swordsman figure that I shared in the merchandise section of the forum. The figure has proven a useful reference tool so far and I intend to keep making as much to scale from that as possible. Anyway, enough talk, here are the pictures.

My starting point for the base of the Dragon Slayer's handle. I started this while I was bored Saturday afternoon and didn't stop

Very early work on the arch where the hilt joins the sword (note: the keyring is just for show, I intend to use something different for the final product)

Much like everything else, this is early work on the throwing knives

and this is the 6ft3 bar laying across my living room to help me get an idea on how to develop the DS further.

I'll keep you guys posted with my progress, this has a deadline for May. Tomorrow I will be starting work on the dagger and potentially the body armour

I've been given this as a big surprise present by my fiancée for valentines day, she's been too good to me (since she also bought me a Skull Knight figure for my birthday aswell), so yes i'm a very happy chappy :guts:

What I want to know from any owners here is; is there any use for the repeating crossbow other than storage? It doesn't seem to fit over guts' arm, so i'm guessing there isn't but i'm wondering if i'm missing something? I also want to know if anyone else has had experience changing the heads? I was inclined to give it a go but I don't want to tug too hard and risk breaking the spring under his neck since it seems kind of fragile.

Other than that i'm really happy since this is really my second proper Berserk figure (other than a miniature Black Swordsman and Puck) and it's pushed all my fiancée's figures out of the way for pride of place. Here's a couple of amateur iPhone shots

and just for the sake of it, here's my Skull Knight

Also, I'm sorry if this should have been asked in a previous thread, I did a search but it only retrieved the custom made figures on the front page.
