    Hi everyone, thanks for looking, I will update this post as and when I have them to update. Completed this file once already, but then my computer crashed and lost everything :cry So I had to start it all over again and found that I had done a better design. (And purchased an external hard drive as a backup option...Worth every pound) :lol

    SORRY ABOUT THE POOR QUALITY OF SOME OF THE PICS...

    So first is the blue sections:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    All done from scratch....and the then the red:

    [​IMG]

    Then some shots of them together with webbing etc:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    To get the effect of the pattern (above) I had to remove, or delete, portions of the pattern to get the effect above.

    Then I sent it off to the printers for a test print, on a small scale, which I am sooooo glad I did simply because I forgot all about changing the selection from RGB into CMYK. The following pics are of the RGB methods, I have since changed the next print I am getting to the CMYK settings and fingers crossed will turn out better, but we will have to wait and see.

    The test print:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And had to give one of the arms a quick sew and see what it looked
    like :lol

    Remember this test print is alot smaller than the full size would be, so looks smaller on my arm:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Thanks for looking, like I stated above once I have any updates, I will share them.

    UPDATE: Since I have been re-working this file here are the newest design pics of the file I am creating, and I now have a larger source to store pictures onto so these will be staying on this thread page.

    Very cool! I have to ask though, where is everyone getting the base pattern to modify? I want to do this myself.

    Got bored today so started playing around with some different designs and wanted to share them through this page. My TASM print should be with me some point next week :)

    Completed a Raimi pattern and added some elements from the amazing spiderman patterns:

    And a work in progress is a black spider version:

    how elastic is the material? some of the pictures make it seem like felt, while others make it seem like tights

    It's printed onto a 4-way stretch lycra which is very elastic.

    Hi.

    I don't know who you are using for printing the fabric but I have had excellent results using R.A smart. They digitally print as apposed to dye sub so the colour saturates the material although your print already looks good for saturation. Might be worth looking into if you are not using them already.

    Eyeofsauron, the spots are like the square parts on the black symbiote costume, but I just decided to make them round instead. Where the webbs shoot from in the comics.

    And theavengerguy, if you mean the lycra, just type in "4 way stretch shiny lycra" in ebay and you should see loads on there.

    small update, been working today on the eye frames for this aswell figuring out how the webshooters will be made, but for now just the eye frames:
    started with some thick card for the templates
    [​IMG]
    then the free hand design
    [​IMG]
    Then the cutting and trimming of the card
    [​IMG]
    then for the mold
    [​IMG]

    And here are the results
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And there we go, pretty good start still need to trim them, paint them and add the centre piece. Thanks for looking!

    A lot of people print using Design and Print Custom Fabric Designs on Demand although I've heard different things about the thickness of their spandex...most say it's a little too thin for their taste, but it's still worth it if you want a costume. They have an tailoring department too, so perhaps if enough of us call and ask for suits to be sewn, they'll become experts at the pattern.

    Silvia's Costumes in LA and NYC also prints spandex. I've been told that they actually did some movie prototype work for one of the Spider-Man movies, but I haven't confirmed that. The guy you want to talk to is named Hike.

    As for saturation, you can get spandex saturated with the correct setting in Photoshop, although it's a bit of a pain. Worth it though.

    Fett, did I hear you are/were printing on the "Mona Lisa"? :love:love

    So I'm still waiting for the seamstress I found to sew my costume together, which she is working on within other jobs (she fits me in when she can), so I thought I would start cracking on with the extra mask I had printed at the same time. The puff paint is in so I thought I would share some small update, since everything else I'm doing is just waiting for things to be done by others :)
    Using puff paint is very difficult for a first time (which I am) so a small tip I found by doing this mask was to allow a small blob form on the end of the tip, then simply keep that blob as I glide the puff paint tip over the template which was printed.
    So before pic:
    [​IMG]

    The start of the painting, prior to figuring out the tip bit:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Then once I found my stride is started getting easier for me, using the above blob idea:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    So there we have a small update for my suit, and gotta say that MCL34N has way more talent than I do, and it's alot harder than it looks, believe me :) But it's also alot of fun. Had to stop now like as me finger n thumb have started going numb lol. And this mask was just an extra one I did at the time of the print as I wanted something to test on. Thanks to MCL34N aswell for allowing me to use his pictures as a reference source for creating my own version of his work, I did not want to just use them without asking, always a good idea I feel!

    I absolutely love your black spiderman! you wouldn't believe how many times i've heard of someone forgetting to switch rgb to cmyk before print (I worked in the marketing dept. for a major publisher years ago) and it's pretty common.

    Don't worry mate, it gets easier. You got the right idea with the 'blob' method. Looking good so far.

    Well a funny thing happened when I decided to stop the work last night as I was tired...that's right I dropped it on the floor :(:( and it all smudged lmao. So another tip is to make sure that it is maybe pinned onto a board for movement around your work area. Thankfully most of it had dried and only a small part was no good. But like I said it's just a test piece I had extra :)
    Love learning, don't you:)

    I find it funny that the printers I use did not tell me before they went ahead with the first print. Trying to find a new one, a cheaper one but the UK has very limited companies that are willing to do these for me. There is a market out there for this type of business and if I had the cash, would do it. But I don't have the money for a huge printer :)

    Nice work here man. I want to eventually crack on with a mask of my own. Since you're from the UK as well, I was wondering who you used to print your pattern?. Like you said it's not easy here.

    Again nice work, looking forward to more updates.

    Small update, some more paint added, only managing to do alittle bit at a time since my fingers are not the best :rolleyes

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Above you can see where I have had to re-do some work due to my dropping it on the floor :facepalm And the difference in lighting, this is taken by the window with more light, and no flash. This is what I really like about the paint, once some good light hits the fabric, it really shows how much better a printed piece, with this paint, shows more details.

    [​IMG]

    I think that I may be getting abit better with the painting now :love

    The paint looks like this as soon as it is applied, when dry it looks darker, until the light hits it @ tylerswim23.

    Theamazingspder the pattern is just an extra mask I had on the print for the full costume, I wanted something to test the painting out on.

    So I'm about 90% done painting the mask now, and instead of loads of pics, I just grouped the pics I have to save some space. Just need to finish off the back pieces off and then try and sew it.
