Just a quick update, im continuing to build up the feet.

And I've done something I've been meaning to do for a while, cut off the chin hump bit that im really not happ with and smooth it over.

But the main reason for this update is i have some exciting helmet news! One of the many damn plastic eggs i bought when i was first screwing around with the helmet actually fits in the way i want it to!

I think when i first got them i was thinking visor, but now im using the whole thing (ala Prometheus style as mentioned earlier) it works. So pleased as it will work better with my lighting ideas and it's nice to have a concrete simple solution sorted!

 

Thanks for looking, more soon :)

Right, little more done on this guy, I've carried on building up and smoothing over the feet and lower leg

They're a bit big and chunky because im going to carve out the detail, and i have done the joint covers for the knee.

So next up I'll shape the feet more and I'll begin to rework the to of the torso to build up a collar for the helmet.

 

Thanks for looking, more soon :)

That helmet is bangin'. It's crying out for no-use-in-real-life-but-awesome-in-movies uplights for the face too. And a big floodlight on top.

Exactly!! I've found this flexible led tubing that lights up, planning on having it inside the inner rim of the helmet so a ring of light will be uplightling his face, and yeah a light on top too. Going to have some spring tube going down the back of it into the jet pack concealing the wires,  again like you say I'm kind of going for looks over function; I want to try and get the cabling squeezed into some spring tube and have it exposed in a Derek Stenning kind of way (but not so extreme with it flying all over the place).

There will be cables for the led in his laser, which like the picture will have a power lead coming from the handle to his pack, and I'm tempted to make a wrist mounted touch screen control monitor for his other forearm which will be lit up.

Another update to show some foot work (dont worry not my dancing!) 

 

I've been carving out details to help give the impression that the foot hinges on the lower leg armor. So marked out where i wanted the hinge to be and got the tools out.

So next I'll continue working on that and defining the foot shape more, and then the task of making the other one match!

Okay another little update, want to add some padding to the top and back of the foot as more flexible padding where the foot pivots on the lower leg armor.

 

35842149476_2eab6e0812_c.jpg20170127_130924 by Nick Frost, on Flickr

 

Also just gave the lower leg a bit of a rake to smooth out the bumps a bit just while i was thinking about it.

Next up I'll continue to shape & smooth, and I'll add a bit of detail to the hinge of the lower leg and the heel and toe cap of the foot.

 

Thanks for looking, more soon :)

Had some sculpt time on my lunch break so did a little more.

 

Wanted to add a circular impression as a bit of hinge detail, but before i did that i had to thicken one side that was a little thin.

 

35494911200_5e50f6bc77_c.jpg20170130_131403 by Nick Frost, on Flickr

 

And as well as the hinge i rolled out some sculpey and began the foot cap and heel details.

Next up i need to sort out the underside of the foot a bit so its flat and i can blend the heel in more so its firmly stuck on.

 

Thanks for looking, more soon :)

Really like the boot details you're forming there. Looks "right",  very mechanical.

Thanks Matt :)

 

I had intended to keep the feet fairly simple, but on a whim I decided to show the foot to have two parts for flexibility when walking.

 

So started by marking out the design, then began carving out material with a ball stylus

 

35842085756_a23f9a0a81_c.jpg20170201_131014 by Nick Frost, on Flickr

35842071816_8cc4b928f1_c.jpg20170201_131223 by Nick Frost, on Flickr

 

Then i thought the bit sticking out needs a recess (just felt like the right thing to do) so i marked another area and resumed removing the sculpey in that area with various tools, being careful to preserve my straight edges.

35882806195_25620cd122_c.jpg20170201_132659 by Nick Frost, on Flickr

 

Then once I'd removed enough I evened out the area by rubbing a ball stylus over it.

 

35713734002_d18b918994_c.jpg20170201_132730 by Nick Frost, on Flickr

 

And then i used a spatula tool to smooth it all over.

35842037916_d1aaf8865d_c.jpg20170201_135118 by Nick Frost, on Flickr

 

I did blend the heel rim in a bit more but its not really noticeable in these pics.

 

Next up i need to work on the heel a bit more to square it up where i smoothed the edge.

 

Thanks for looking, more soon :)

That looks pretty cool, are you going to add cut-in details to any of the other rigid armour parts?

Cheers Will! Yeah i think i will, im really happy with how the foot looks so I'll try to mirror similar details on the limbs to tie it all together.

Im going to have to rework the chest to accommodate a collar for his helmet, so while I'm at it I'll drop the rounded shape and make it more squared off in a similar way too.

Wow, those feet look great!

The detail you've added around the toe area really reminds me of judge dredds boots, in a good way. They look well up for prodding some alien butts. I think some heavy tread on the soles would really set them off, maybe make them like magnetic boots.

Just my thoughts, feel free to ignore me.

Cheers Matt! I am really pleased with it, though now i have the task of making the other foot look the same (damn humans with our TWO feet!)

Definitely going to add some heavy tread, for when a laser just isn't enough! :D

Looking great. I would have no idea where to start so it's fantastic watching this take shape. Looking forward to seeing the alien.

Thanks BrotherMole,  I can't wait to start sculpting the alien either, be nice to start something organic as a break from the precise spacesuit!

Update time! I have been sculpting the right foot to match the left,  which is a bit of a pain, going a bit crazy sculpting then measuring with calipers adjusting and smoothing.

 

Below is the process of me thickening the lower leg, and then tweaking the foot shape to match the other.

 

Sorry its a bit pic heavy, im considering just filming myself sculpt it might be easier when doing so many tweaks!

And after all that, the foot is a little long when i checked! So next up I'll trim it down and re add the toe rim once I've smoothed it over and reworked the shape a little.

 

Thanks for looking, more soon :)
