My pred suit --WIP--

These suck!! IMO this is by far the most time consuming part, it took me about one and half hours to apply just the back side. I'm taking a break and thought I would share with you guys and gals, enjoy!!



*I noticed after the pic was uploaded the spots were "digitized", it's my damn camera

looks pretty good to me, nah the spots turned out normal looking on my pc, great job. again cant wait to start on my suit. i do have a question, i know it's probably somewhere on the boards, but since i'm here i thought i would ask, okay heres the question: where do you get the latex rubber to be painted onto the suit? anyways ,just a simply awesome suit, kudos to you jaded.

Thanks a bunch Bane, I couldn't have gotten this far if it weren't for everyone on the Lair and especially a ****-ton of advice from MacGuyver (thanks man!).

To answer your question I got my latex from Montserroom (look them up in the member search). It is really simple to use and actually I used MacGuyver's huntorial as my guide and here it is: Macguyver's Mr. Incredible Huntorial
I hope that are useful to you and hope you start your suit soon , I will be looking for it!

-I'll answer any questions ya got to the best of my ability

Woo-hoo!! I'm close to having my mask done! I added 95% of the spots today after class. I stopped because I ran out of color and I thought I was at a good stopping point for the night. I added the stripes or "bars" above the eyes to really give off his tiger-ish persona. I have never painted a mask before and feel like I went out on a limb with the tiger look, so please let em know what ya think. Enjoy



**I'll take some more pics outside tomorrow after work (they turn out much better)

Started working my way around to the front. A little time consuming, but the weekend is around the corner, enjoy.



*I'm having trouble with my airbrush "spitting" water, I figure it's something to do with the moisture trap/inline filter. I'm gonna research it and see what I can find, but if anybody has any suggestions, please feel free to post 'em. Thanks!!

agreed, looks more like a leopard. but as stated looks good.

Much props to you for the suit build, ...... remember if there is something you don't like about the final build, you can always go back and change it. armor, skin bio ...etc

Thanks Kit! When I started I wanted to try and do a tiger striped theme (like you suggested Kit), but the spots just happened and actually I'm growing more fond of them every time I look at it. I might experiment with adding some orange to the center of the spots, but IDK yet. Maybe I should change the heading to "leopard pred build" :D ?


:p I never thought of that, but it really does look like Fred Flintstones shirt :p . Thank you for the compliments TMI

WOO-HOOOO!!!! I finished my body suit today!!! All that is left is just a little trimming around the ankles and forearms, but I can do that easily after I assemble the armor. Here are the pics that my brother helped me take (the pics might be worse than normal cause he can't use a camera ), but anyways comments are appreciated, enjoy!



**I am so glad to get that thing outta my living room and I will post better pics when I have a better cameraman :)
