Neon Genesis Evangelion - Eva 01 WIP
« on: July 21, 2013, 01:48:37 pm »

*cough cough*
Hello everyone! I hope some of you'll remember me... It's been quite a time(hell, my english was bad back then) and to be honest, I abandoned 3d-modeling, since I got the feeling, "viewable" art is not my style, I prefer to write.

Until now.

After wachting Evangelion 1.01(or 1.11? No idea) with some friends(and then watching all episodes of Neon Genesis Evangelion) I got the idea - hey, what about an Eva-01-cosplay for the next convention? Hmm, google, how to build cosplay armour... Pepakura? Sounds good. The bad thing was, I couldn't find a suitable(literally) model to print out on paper. So, I thought, why not make one yourself? Heck, it's a lot of work. So... originally I wanted to use 3DS Max since I got that student version on my system and didn't use it yet. Hm. I was too lazy to learn all that new stuff, so I came back to anim8or. The fact that there was an update(which won't work on my systems, neither Win 8 nor Win XP. Bummer.) got me into that anim8or-mood again and today I started working on the armour.

I just wanted to ask if you guys would be interested in viewing the progress of my work. I won't make one whole model, just individual parts, which will be easier to process into real-world armour.

Attached is one of my reference pictures to give you an idea of what I'm doing.

Have a great day everyone

Yeah, it's quite confusing o_

I finished the lower arm today and put some basic colouring on it.





It's a bit rough and needs lots of fine tuning, but I think it turned out quite good, considering I didn't use Anim8or for ... how long? 3 years?

On the other hand, it will be printed out using Pepakura, so lots of polygons wouldn't be that great... ;D
