So back to sharing Red Ronin photos! As y'all saw from last weekend,it's done. I'll share photos off how I did the various parts, but overall it was a relatively simple build and a much needed break from Samurai Batman.
This was a 3 week build, which Is the fastest I've built a cosplay. Not only was this a break from Batman,it was a test of new found knowledge and a learning experience.
The first test was the creation of digital patterns that could be used universally and patterns that are clean and symmetrical. The second test was trying a different paint technique. Aside from the helmet, everything is hand painted using various paints and brushes. Usually I spray paint everything and add in weathering. I feel I can improve upon my realism when it comes to painting, which is why I made this challenge for myself. I believe the finishing/painting process of a build is what really breathes life into it.
Every build I do, I really try to learn from it. To me it's more than just making a pattern and putting it together, I see it as , how can I challenge myself to grow and learn....but anyways, thanks for the support and follows, I hope to keep creating for years to come!
