Here is the end result of the 'Black and Silver' commission.
*edit -> Have since added gauntlets and a helmet to complete this armor. *
We've got the breastplate with wet molded 'muscled' chest.
Lots of carving and embossing.
Incredibly solid with a lot of overlapped plates and hardening.
Cool new Pauldron design
Greaves with high knee
Unusual sabbaton design
Scale 'Super Skirt' with hundreds of 'floating' scales where each of which are hand molded and, dyed, painted, studded, and assembled. Incredibly solid and a bit heavy but doesn't restrict movement at all.
It's got full articulated arms with the elbow cop, vambrace, and rerebrace. Similar to metal plate designs.
This is the first set of armor where I've tooled the Prince Armory logo into it. Shows up nicely in this pic.
The mannequin doesn't wear the armor well at all. As usual. 90% of the armors I make are commissioned and are made to fit a certain person. A disproportioned 6' 4" mannequin doesn't really do the armors justice. I think there will be an immense difference when the intended wearer of this piece and hopefully they'll get some photos to me.
All leather construction by the way held together with rivets, chicago screws, and floating retaining straps.
Design and intricate work by me but a a lot of props go to my assistant and friend, Chris, on this one for a lot of the work on it.
It doesn't have a name but if it had the right type of helmet I'd probably want to call it the "Leather Iron Man" armor haha
Or at least leather 'tin man' heh
