Amusingly I've had two people say I look like Guts. Neither of which are familiar with the Berserk series, I just showed them the base for what I was building.Aphasia said:This is really coming together. Those boots are wicked! I love the way they fold. The whole outfit will look legit. Do you look like Guts?
Great job on the texturing/colors, too. Very nice stained metal look.
Pretty much, I use a metallic silver base with a light and spread metallic black over the top and tweak it until I think it looks right.Manjou said:I can't believe that boot armour is just card!
Is it just spray paint you're using on it? If so how are getting that mottled aged effect? Spraying lightly so that you get little blobs of black?
Very cool, thanks. I asked so people could relate to the "budget" part of the experience. Shows that with enough determination one can do wonders.JezzaX said:I'm estimating about £60 in total including consumables (paint, glue, duct tape, split pins etc). Keeping in mind that most of the materials you see here are bits of scrap I obtained via work with the exception of the cloak and the brown vinyl.
Thanks. It's looking very nice already, though I notice that the throwing dagger holsters look a little too big when you wear the breastplate as opposed to when it's not worn.JezzaX said:I'll make sure to share pictures of it being worn after Saturday's expo for you Aaz
I thought it looked quite close when you compare it with my reference materialAazealh said:I notice that the throwing dagger holsters look a little too big when you wear the breastplate as opposed to when it's not worn.
It's nothing too flagrant, but I think they're a bit bigger than in the manga (even on that figure). Maybe it also struck me because I'm used to seeing them hang on Guts' extra-wide torso, I don't know. It still looks great anyway.JezzaX said:I thought it looked quite close when you compare it with my reference material
