I kind of done my own thing with the glass bits.. they are meant to be gems. In the movie, he has all this shit over his armor, lots of gold and gems/diamonds ect.. But I couldn't find anything remotely close in the art store. Them damn green rock things cost me $15 bucks for 10 of um.. I was thinking with that alone.. its gotta look good on the sculpt haha its ok I guess.. I wish I could of found the right materials. But sometimes ya just gotta go fuck it. People get the idea. I'm supposed to add little gold balls around each gem.. I was going to try a gold chain, hoping it would work better in the castings.. But nope.. :/ So the armor is a little blah until I find the real goodies.
it looks good haha bloody expensive green rocks! I dont 4even recall what he wore in the move anymore so its fine unless you want to go splitting hairs and comparing side by side ha.mm I use micro hole less beads that are like poppy seeds very small and they are glass but come in color and silver too
They were.. ugly little bastards too, but I thought they looked good haha. The armor piece is kind of like that, its designed a little more detailed. Then below that, he wore a rob that was gold with a square design. Wish I could find that material/dress. I want to make a life size stand for it.
I should of used some beads for the other details. *sigh* can you move closer so I can harass you in finishing my work more finally tuned? haha
you can get all sorts of mosaic glass and vintage glass cabochon on etsy at good prices man. id sure like to see you do I dunno similar decked out monsters.maybe your own creature designs. only cause you dont see glass on models,but it lends some change of texture. if you have a printer you can make stencils from this product called photo ez. any black and white design works. its not that cheap but you can make your own custom fabric patters using acrylic paints. there also a lazertran paper for prints on silk. if you want a full color fabric print in a small scale. hah sure Id be honored to do that.
Fantastic work on his slit throat! That's really cool how you added the ridges on the palate inside his mouth, too; a lot of people would just have skipped over that detail. I really love the design of his collar. Makes me think of something you'd see in the 'ancient history: tribal art' section at a museum.
