I know its been a while but I was busy with quite a few things.
For Anime Expo 2013, I made armor for Insane Black Rock Shooter out of Aluminum and I am in the process of fixing it. So, I figure while I am at it, I will make a tutorial of how I do it.
I had a lot of questions about it from people and it was actually a lot easier and more authentic looking than I thought.
I figured out some new tricks too so hopefully this will help people who want to make cheap, good looking and NOT HEAVY armor
In the mean time, for those asking about my gauntlets, I used the tutorial from Guyton on youtube for gauntlets and tweaked the design a bit (finger ends and wrist) to suit my character's look specifically. So definitely check that out and I'll be back after the holidays with a tutorial on my armor and lance
see you soon!
