I Officially Hate Christmas.

Posted by rabbit , Dec 26 2012 · 140 views

Well, I had a horrible and saddening christmas this year;  In fact, I would rather prefer the Holiday never arriving.
 
But, on the note of my project, We've primed the helmet and have 1 coat of paint on.  The last coat should complete it today.
 
Bah Humbug!

Progress update for this weekend.

Posted by rabbit , in Progress Updates Dec 16 2012 · 110 views

Well, not too much has happened this weekend, but I did take a lot of pictures.
 
The slight amount of Paper Mache I put on the Avohkii last week is dry, and has added some structural support.
 
The Picture is a bit dark :P
 
 
I put the final coat of the clay-like stuff on the forehead of the Helmet on friday, this time sculpting it more with my hands instead of a trowel.  I think it turned out fine, even though it isn't entirely dry now.  I sanded a bit of the parts that were previously finished, as well.  It doesn't seem overly large anymore, and fits almost perfectly.  For some pictures I decided to wield an old PVC pipe that was left over from the construction of this house.  I also noticed an old circular metal sled, that might work as a shield...

Also, I took a few more pictures with the pipe as Vakama's staff(Yeah... it's shorter than I thought it would be :/ )/Kohlii Stick.
 
I've continuing to Dissect Pringles cans into strips of cardboard.  I have made this semi-spherical frame.  I could made the other side and attach it, making a sphere, then coat it with Paper Mache.  Kohlii Ball, perhaps?

Well, that's all for this weekend.  I'm not sure If I'll finish anything next weekend, for I'll be on Vacation most of next week.

This weekend's progress update

Posted by rabbit , in Progress Updates Dec 09 2012 · 121 views

Unfortunately this glorious weekend must come to a close, but I did get some progress done during the past 2 1/2 days.
I put two coats of paper mache on the helmet, one on the eye-nosepiece,and another on an ear area.  I didn't do  the forehead, in fear the weight would cause it to cave in.  Next weekend I'll put on the last coat and then sand it.  As usual, some pictures are blurry.

I've been dissecting pringles cans recently and making little cardboard strips.  I've been glueing these together out of boredom.

Stuff
 
And I put the clayish stuff in some hard-to-reach places on the Avohkii, after hot glueing the sides a bit for stability.
 
Drying.

Oh, the Nostalgia!

Posted by rabbit , Dec 05 2012 · 124 views

I started tinkering around with the Phantoka Demo again. It brings back a bunch of memories. I wish the creator of it actually fully developed the game, or added a weapon and some NPCs, at least. I also just found out how to throw the Grenades, which is pretty fun. I was looking at it's program files, and noticed I could change the textures and such. Now I just have to find a compatable companion cube texture :D

I would post screenshots, but I'm lazy :P

Well, this is late (Pictures)

Well, Unfortunately last weekend I didn't have time to post my progress.  I'll just tell what I did for this weekend and last.  Unfortunately, some pictures are dark.  My grandfather restocked the Clay-ish paper-mache this week.
 
Noble Huna:  Well, I girded my loins and improvised.  It was fairly easier than I expected, and turned out okay after hot-gluing the beard to the mask.  Today we primed it.

Companion cube:  I'm declaring it Finished!  I made a little stencil and have painted all the hearts of the box.  I might paint the dark part with a bit darker grey sometime, but for now it's done.

Enchilada!
 
Shoulder plates:  I sanded and painted the left shoulder plate.  The "Hammered Copper" color is great and the paper-mache really looks like you can see all the hammer-strokes from the blacksmith, making it look awesome.  I did all the paper-mache for the right plate, and have sanded it to my satisfaction.  We primed it tonight and will paint it tomorrow.

Kakama:  I used some left over paper-mache to fill in the harder to reach cracks on this, which is especially good for the holes that used to be near the mouthpiece.

Helmet:  My grandfather finished the inside paper-mache this week and re-primed it.  I've been doing the outside paper-mache this weekend, and have about 2/5 done.

Well, that's all for now!
