Fives Arc Trooper armor.

Post by C.J.Cutrone9 on Tue Mar 08, 2011 9:04 pm

Well that episode was sad. I still can't believe Echo died. He probably deserved it though for acting like an idiot. Oh well, at least now I had the ability to make one of them.



The front.



The front. Helmet off. Yes I know that is Rex's face but I am pretty sure Fives has a shaved beard.



Right side. The range finder is attached to him and doesn't come out easily. You have to pluck it.



The back.



Left side.



I even gave him a little scene.

C&C are appreciated

Very good effort.

However it's rather sloppily done. Sharpies are not the best for making customs. I'd suggest trying water slide decals next time. Smile

You sure about that Dutch? Sharpies seem to work very well for me and TB. I really have to post some of my work, I'm just too lazy. Razz Anyway, the figure is sloppy, if you want to remove the sharpie get an eraser and start rubbing.

The pauldron is quite nasty, as it seems like you drew the design onto it with Crayola Markers. You might want to look into using different types of paints too; as sharpie seems to smear a lot. I believe you had a good concept, but you didn't really execute it to the best of your ability. Perhaps you might want to try a revision? Wink

Also, it's ARC trooper. Advanced Recon Commando.

Not a bad attempt, but it's been done quite sloppy. I suggest that you use waterslide decals instead, it's a much neater (and faster!) way of making a custom clone. Wink Also ARC troopers have a pauldron that extend to both sides in the CW episodes. Wink

No offence, but that's VERY sloppy and looks rushed. Laughing

Please use proper spelling, grammar, capitalization, & punctuation. -K

EDIT: Sorry, now it's fixed.

I don't understand why you 'Brassoed' the entire helmet down. The printing that already existed on the P2 helmet would have helped with the design.

What is Brasso anyway? Never heard of it.

Oh yeah and to every one who is complaining about the sharpie. The legs and the arms are old. Like I did them when the first Season 3 episode came out. I didn't notice how worn down they looked until just now. That is something I will have to fix

Very rough. Look at Thunderblade's attention to detail when using sharpies. Wink

A brand of metal polish, particularly used for brass (duh). But it's good for stripping away LEGO printing.

I do believe you need to work a bit on your spelling and punctuation skills. -Tac

Although your overall figure is good, Like Ducth said, The sharpie is rather sloppy, I suggest you invest in some acrylic paints...
Also, Maybe redo the pauldron?
Good work overall though! Smile
