Small progress which did cost quite a lot of time, I hate how you can be busy for an hour and not see real progress…
When I made the bionic foot, I made the whole leg a tad longer than the other. Which in turn made him walk with a limp. To compensate for this I gave his left foot an extra bottom layer and to make him look a tad more massive, I added a front plate to his foot.
I always think it looks a tad better this way. It’s something I saw in an old picture of a captain or something.
Before I get the “Is that a giant plate on your powerfist or is he just happy to see me?”
Yes, it is a giant plate.
No he’s not happy to see you.
I added wires between fist and shoulder, same idea as with the leg, bionics incognito
More wires and cables are still to be added.
Why it is there? Remember this:
This was kindly vetoed by most of you and, most importantly by X-slash-X (the client).
The plate was meant to fill op the part I filed away, after some shaping it should look better:
As you can see I cut out a small rectangle. I wanted to make part of the powerfist open to show some worky bits and have cables coming out of it. But when I tried to pry open the cut out rectangle, I got some sort of lid. I like the way it looks, especially if I run a few cables from it to under the shoulderpad.
But before I do this I should at least ask my kindly client
Maybe I should've taken a front view of the fist with the lid thingy... oh well, to late now.
