Umbra is coming along!!!
« on: February 21, 2020, 09:40:54 am »
So, got the V2 renders for the head I am getting 3d printed :)

https://prnt.sc/r5oi94

still a couple tweaks, add teeth, tongue and separate the bottom jaw from the top but overall the shape is in the place.

so once this is all done, It will be 3d printed and shipped to me. The plan is to then sand, paint and finish the piece then look at adding fur and hair to get my final headpiece.

Any thought's?

Now that I feel like I have actually started in earnest, This will now be my ongoing update thread for Umbra Suit V1 ^_^

 I'm envious! How cool would it be to have a 3D printed wolf/ canine!

 I like it so far,  how are you going to do the eyes? And will your hearing be okay inside a plastic printed head? I've never had the chance to wear one, so I don't know.   My head is mostly foam.

Sorry Just saw your other questions Jade Sinapu!!

Hearing should be fine, it should fit similar to this https://i.etsystatic.com/15310522/r/il/d2e335/1967891352/il_794xN.1967891352_owln.jpg
So my ears/back of my head will be just covered by a cowl that I have yet to make but should keep hearing viable.


As for the eyes, 1.5" Acryclic follow me eyes.

here is the art work - https://i.etsystatic.com/icm/2cdc47/240340390/icm_fullxfull.240340390_rtgec6emb9c04ssoo0ok.jpg?version=0

https://www.etsy.com/listing/700071792/realistic-v2-custom-slit-5-75-1-125-15-2

The print had the sockets recessed to accommodate these. I will have black fabric in the large Duct area of the eyes for me to see through...

My vision won't be great but will see how it goes.

This is how this artists eyes look in a head https://i.etsystatic.com/9762772/r/il/37ebce/2043768881/il_794xN.2043768881_nmwj.jpg

Just got back some pictures of the eyes, they should be shipped out today :)

https://i.etsystatic.com/icm/3da494/245312907/icm_fullxfull.245312907_julyz407jeo0gg8wo0go.jpg?version=0

Also ordered some test fur to see if it will work for the mane.

also ordered a balaclava to go underneath

~edit~

Head has arrived! looks like I will have a fair bit of work with primer and sanding to smooth out the print lines.

There is also a largish seam near the back I will need to fill and sand to get to look right.

Other than that it's great!!!!

The Fur also turned up and looks like it will work great for the mane.

Now I just have to get the cowl portion figured out, put together get all the painting, sanding, gluing etc done and I should have a nice looking head ^_^

Ok ready for prep.

there is a large seem near the back of the piece that goes all the way round, aparently this is typical in a 3d print.

http://prntscr.com/rdv0ql

I will be filling the seem a little better and then sanding down, I will then spray with Automotive primer (grey) sand,  then repeat these two steps another time most likely.

This should give me a smooth surface and prime the piece ready for painting.

I will also need to pad the inside, in addition the vision currently is terrible, when the eyes get here I will see how much plastic I can remove from around the eye area to improve that.

http://prntscr.com/rdv25v


The eyes look amazing!!!

definitely need to bring them forward a bit, and trim in the inner edge off to imrpove vision

http://prntscr.com/rdvc3b

http://prntscr.com/rdvcpj

I will post more pics after the prep is done and before painting.

First coat of primer applied

http://prntscr.com/rerfgg

And about 1.5 hours hand sanding...

http://prntscr.com/rerg1n

http://prntscr.com/rergot

May need to pick up a small electric sander as not sure my arm is up to the task of finishing this manually 0_o



Saturday my small butane torch turns up which will allow me to fix the seams and sharp edges inside the head itself so my head doesn't get torn up.

But will need to do a bit more sanding, then prime again and sand again,  then a third and final prime before painting.
