Although not a complete write up, I think this image beautifully illustrates what goes into making the *gorgeous* Claymore armor and swords that we’ve been seeing more and more of recently.
The first image listed here is the absolutely stunning (and extremely talented) owner of God Save the Queen Fashions. In this Deviantart submission, she breaks down all of the fabric basics, including the type of leather she used to make the neck guard. Her eye for detail has never ceased to impress me, and I hope to one day be a fraction as skilled as her.
The second and third images are an overview of MarikaSan’s Claymore progress (check out the original here). This process was created by Volpin, who covers his methods in details throughout two blog posts (1, 2).
I gush over Volpin’s work quite often, not only because he is extremely talented but because he shares every single step of his method, and he is always willing to answer questions. He’s amazingly talented and takes pride in his work
Time cannot permeate this sabbatical. We do not stay dead long. Once my Luger lets me go, my birth, next time around, will be upon me in a heartbeat. Thirteen years from now we’ll meet again at Gresham, ten years later I’ll be back in this same room, holding this same gun, composing this same letter, my resolution as perfect as my many-headed sextet. Such elegant certainties comfort me at this quiet hour.
Some time ago I was invited to 21 draw project - awesome book about character design included a lot of awesome artists ( when I saw Enrique Fernandez in the list I was like ooh my god) So if you like the idea and want to have such book - you can donate 8))
