Just wanted to show off my custome made X-Files wallets. The first are of course the Scully and Mulder set, and then there's the Cigarette Smoking Man. All artwork was scratch built based on a whole load of reserach (and ther are so many versions of the wallet ID's floating around that I decided to research and do my own). The only images that I didn't create are the photo's themselves, even though they have been heavily tweaked in Photoshop. I build most of my templates from scratch in Photoshop and make conversions and what-have-you in Publisher.
The wallets are hand stitched (which is not accurate, the ones on the show used machine stitching) but the measurments are exact, and I finished the edges with an edge coating. The shield was hand sculpted (again, never been satisfied with what little I was able to find, so I spent a month working on the sculpt with some really good screen shots and accurate measurements) then cast in resin.
Total project, about 3 years of work (mostly because I would put it away frustrated and come back a little later revived.) Anyway, comments please. I've been anxious to show these off. Forgive the crappy photo's, hate my digital camera.
