Lightstone Build Complete!(Pictures)

Posted by BULiK , in Progress Updates Nov 05 2012 · 356 views

So, I printed this out yesterday, but didn't start cutting it or anything until around noon today. It was surprisingly easy to build and I glued it together in just a few sessions. Later at some point I might paint it yellowish. Again, thanks to CrunchBiteNuva for getting my a Format of this file that my printer can use.

Also, I did this, just for kicks:

Amon is Spartan!

Also, I'm now attempting to paint the light grey on the Companion Cube. Right now I'm letting it dry to see if I need to add more white to the paint mix.

So, yesterday I printed and completed my helmet thingie. It was surprisingly easy and simple. Although, it's an inch or so too big on all the axis. First time is not the Charm, apparently :P

Progress update for today

Posted by BULiK , in Progress Updates Nov 03 2012 · 254 views

So today we primed the Companion cube twice, making it look ever closer to completion. I haven't gotten the Skyrim models yet, but when I do I'll get to work on them. Unfortunately I didn't have time to hand-paint the light grey areas, due to going to see Wreck-It Ralph With my little brother. It was a nice enough movie, although there was a saddening lack of portal references and a half-dozen plot twists. I also did a bit of paper mache on the Kualsi while listening to tonights Prairie Home Companion show. Unfortunately I didn't have time to take pictures of the little work I got done today. Tomorrow I'll mostly be doing homework and hopefully painting the light grey areas of the CC. I still need ideas on how to do the hearts.


Companion Cube Build Complete!

Posted by BULiK , in Progress Updates Nov 02 2012 · 499 views

So half an hour ago I finished Hot-glueing the side-thingies to the companion cube, completing the build! Tomorrow I will put on 2 coats of primer (Which luckily is dark grey so I don't have to paint some of it Lol) and then hopefully paint the light grey areas by hand or something, and maybe even the hearts. I'm not really sure about the hearts because I suspect I will fail and mess them up, So I might wait on that until I figure out how to do the outline in a systematic fashion. I might make a stencil, but I'm not sure how and to what size. Any ideas in this (Or with creating a stencil) would help.

Halloween (and small progress update from last weekend)

Posted by BULiK , in Progress Updates Oct 31 2012 · 312 views

Ya know, if I actually had the bravery to celebrate this holiday, I would put my masks to better use. Unfortunately It might be kinda embarrassing telling people I'm an insane teenager dressed as someone from a toylike that was made a decade ago :|

And now, the progress update. Nothing has changed since I last blogged about it other than my companion cube. Just barely an hour before I left my grandparent's house on Sunday evening, my grandpa and I came up with an ingenious way to support my companion cube. He was using a special half-foam-half-cardstock material on his latest train layout he was working on, and I realized that I could use it to support my companion cube. We quickly hot-glued the support structure onto the 4 faces of the cube (I made it a few weeks ago) and presto! It suddenly wasn't a slumped, saggy piece of paper anymore, but a structurely stable box! Before I left I glued another face onto the box, and when I get back on Friday I'll finish the job. After that, I'll just need to attach a few more pieces and paint it :D

Unfortunately I didn't have time to take pictures on Sunday, so you'll have to wait until the weekend.


Also, I found some awesome Skyrim files, so If I can convince CrunchBiteNuva to put them in PDF form for me, I'll have some new stuff to work this weekend :D


Progress Update for Non-Bionicle projects (with pictures)

The companion cube is rolling along nicely, although the only reason is isn't finished yet is because I haven't figured out how I'll reinforce the inside.

The Viper MK II is going great, And right now I'm using all my resources on it. I've finished and attacked the top engine/rudder, and am currently working on the side engines/wings. It's close to completion now, and It should be done in 1 to 2 weeks (I can only do this on weekends).

Another Progress Update (With even more pictures)

Posted by BULiK , in Progress Updates Oct 20 2012 · 300 views

So, yesterday and today I've been finishing the build on the kakama, and It's build has been finished. My Grandpa and I will Prime that this evening.

(Pictures below)

Better picture of my hand holding it.
For the record, that's my chin, not a giant adam's apple :P

Progress on my Pakari is speeding up as well; While I was at my parent's house during the school week my Grandpa had enough time when he wasn't volunteering for the elections to continue paper Mache-ing the pakari. Phe paper mache process isn't entirely done yet, but he did an amazing job compared to before on the horizontal Part, and there are only a few things to straighten out. I hope we will finish it next week, and possibly even this weekend we might be able to paper mache together.

(Pictures below)

Me, holding the mask.
Fikou attack!

As for the Kualsi, It was primed last weekend, and my Grandpa and I will try to paper mache that one (Luckily the Kualsi should be easier to paper mache, speeding up the process) after the pakari's paper mache is finished.

(Sorry, I have no new pictures for the Kualsi)


Progress Update (with pictures)

Posted by BULiK , in Progress Updates Oct 14 2012 · 262 views

So, since last weekend I've been working on another one of CrunchBiteNuva's paper masks, the higher Quality Kakama. It's not completely finished being built (All that's left is the inner lining on the side slits and some more detail on the mouth), but it's extremely close. I'm surprised that I got it this far in around 4 days. During the coming week while I'm at my parent's house, My grandpa will (Hopefully) have time to finish paper mache-ing the Pakari, and maybe start of the Kualsi.

Here's some recent pictures of the kakama:

And what it looks like on my face.

Again, thank CrunchBiteNuva for making these and making them available. Go check out his topic.

Now comment.

So, We've primed the kakama, but the paper mache isn't fully flat. My grandfather will buy black glossy paint at some point in the week, and I'm going back to my parent's house today (the later, the better) The companion cube has 4 1/2 pages left to cut out, and I'm busy glueing the corner pieces. The main faces I'm having some trouble with. After we clean up and paint the kakama next week, I May or may not Paper mache the Amon mask, depending on how well I can clean up the kakama.
