This weekend's progress update

Posted by Mask of Ultimate Cliche , in Progress Updates Dec 09 2012 · 154 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.

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

Oh, the Nostalgia!

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, 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!

I was looking around on Netflix and I found a very peculiar item. "Fireplace for Your Home: Classic Edition"

XD

I suppose it's for those people who don't have a lighter or wood, but yet have iPhones, computers, and want to pay monthly subscriptions ( :P)

But anyways, this is a surprise to me. It must be very boring, staring at a digital fire for an hour to Christmas music XD.

Well, I found an app that let's me listen to the local public radio station, because for some strange reason I don't have a radio in my room at my parent's house. Now I can listen to NPR and be on BZP at the same time 7 days a week.

:D

That new feature...

Posted by Mask of Ultimate Cliche , Nov 25 2012 · 147 views

Apparently, now when you look at someone's post, it shows if they are currently online or not. This is faster than having to scroll your mouse over their name or go to their profile. This also makes it much easier to tell if the person you are waiting for to reply to your post is not there, or just being plain lazy :P (Although there is also the chance that they are busy viewing another topic, etc.)

Well, It's good to see that some positive change is being made on the forums.

What I've done during this past... two days or so. (Pictures!)

Posted by Mask of Ultimate Cliche , in Progress Updates Nov 23 2012 · 118 views

Well, after a horrible thanksgiving, I've made some progress. I experimented with the paper mache detail thing I've been pondering the past few weeks. It's looking good so far. Yesterday I put on the coat of the clayish paper mache stuff, and put in a dozen or so lacerations, dents, and notches in it, to look like battle damage and whatnot. It dried faster than I thought, and I sanded it to satisfaction today. I took some pictures about halfway through the process. This is the picture of the side after I sanded it somewhat, and here is the picture of the other side which at the time of the picture taking, wasn't sanded. Here's a picture of it on my shoulder. After lunch we went to the local Home Depot and bought the spray paint. The kind we will use is a "Hammered copper", and looks like it will work out good. I also added a few more support strips on the helmet, so it will retain the intended shape as my grandfather paper maches it's inside during the next few weeks. We are waiting until tomorrow morning to paint the shoulder plate, just to give it more time to fully dry. Tonight I'll paper mache the inside of the other shoulder plate. I'll post a blog entry tomorrow with pictures of the painted shoulder armor, if all goes to plan.

Well, that's all for now.

WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

I got something epic in the mail today :D

Vezon and Kardas!

So after two glorious hours of building this set, and I took some pictures.

About a third into the build, when you work on the main spinal column/torso/waist thing, it looks almost like a life size hilt of Tahu Mata's sword. Also, by bending the wing parts a bit, it looks like the start of a crossbow.

Then, after taking those pictures, I continued building. So, here is the finished product presented on my desk (Like a Boss!), and then I posed them for a picture of a hunt (You can decide for yourself which is the predator and which is the prey :P ), etc. etc. etc. Kardas could probably be modified into a Moc of the "King Kriptor", or a Cybran or UEF ACU. :D

Well, this was definitely worth the $27 it cost for me to buy this from Tazakk.

Um... sorry if I broke the blog entry title display thing :P

What I dream about...

Posted by Mask of Ultimate Cliche , Nov 20 2012 · 127 views

Well, I fell asleep In school today, and I had some strange dreams. About half were related to BZP, half of the remaining were related to bionicle, and the rest are about thermonuclear warfare.

Anyways, tomorrow I'll go back to see my grandparents, and hopefully I'll get something done.

EDIT: Well, the guy who has been creating the models I use for my non-bionicle related stuff just churned out some more epic stuff. I can't wait until January, when I'll get a resupply of paper to make this epic new stuff.

:happydance:

I found an epic new screensaver.

Totally better than my laggy Toa Mahri one I used previously.
