Well today we started to piece together the armor for Grunt. really it's just a lot of thin, durable fiberglass work.
Now, this is only one way you can do something like this. If this project had the time and money of a movie, we'd probably be sculpting, molding, and casting all of these armor pieces perfectly. Which I would love, love to do. But this is not the case (cries). So! We're building the body suit on the body cast, and then piecing the armor on top of that. I didn't take any pictures tonight (I was too busy making things) but I'll for sure be getting some up tomorrow as I cut up the pieces into actual armor.
So keep watching! In the meantime, here's the video I just posted of me in the Shepard armor....enjoy!!
Oh, and here's Tayler working on a Tali leg. Or making a flux capacitor. I'm not sure which. Dangerous SCIENCE!
The lovely Shumworld over at Deviantart drew us a bit of fan art for this video...wait for the end to see the inspiration. I love it!! He's done a few others too, so go see!
