For those who may like to create something unique for themselves, but have no idea where to start, this thread will document my progress creating some new leather armor for my character. Hopefully some others can take inspiration from it to try to make something new.
Recently I've been working on on leather crafting and getting some idea's out of my head and into real world. Strangely that seems to be taking to work on Orc armor. Yeah that's not where I started off but it's how it's going. I can't show any pictures right now as I'm just getting the patterns worked out this week for few things and I'm terrible at taking pictures but I can post a reference for a gauntlet that I am working on. No not my work but it's what I'm working from. Working out some kinks with my design of it I might need a bit of assistance. So bit by bit I will work on it as I stand back and work on other parts. Next up archer's or should we say ranger shoulder armor. A single sleeve of leather strapped to my body with a segment of armor going down it to protect when I am firing arrows at friends.......errrrr Foes! Yes FOE'S! *Cough* Anywho the only part I haven't worked out is the actual shoulder piece of the armor but I should have that in a day or so( want to mold it but I'm considering doing slits or darts and bending and stitching. we shall see what comes out.). After that a nice Big Ab belt that will be sistered with chest and back armor. Yup now you can see where the Orc ideas started coming in. But any Tips or tricks you may have for me would be fantastic. Pictures soon, I promise!
