Hello Everyone!

This is my first full costume project I am trying to do. I have already created my shield and I will post pics of it when I can get them from my other computer but I am looking for some assistance!

I recently got the muscle base suit from Taylor McManus (Thanks btw!) and have been working on modifying it for my Captain America project.

I am running into trouble trying to continue the stripe pattern from the abs around the back and having them line up as I am not quite sure where the back and the front connect. You can see in this picture what I mean.

Now I am just a beginner with Photoshop so I am learning as I go but any assistance would be greatly appreciated! Oh I am also doing the actual scales for the chest as well! I purchased them from TheRingLord.com and I will post my WIP pics of that too! (need to buy more scales).

Here are the progress pics of my scale chest piece and my shield.

This is a close up pic of the scales I am using. They are anodized blue aluminum large scales.

I need to order more scales for the sleeves and back. So far that is 300 scales.. need roughly 1200 more lol!

Here is my shield from start to "almost" finished... need to attach the brackets. The star is from Valor.. Thanks again!

As far as the psd file and correctly lining up the front to the back I am still having trouble with that. Anyone who has done the spiderman prints if you have any suggestions please let me know! I am about to print a picture of it out on paper and try to fold it around to see how they line up as a "paper doll" lol.

Would love to hear what you all think!

Is there a way to draw on a t-shirt to figure out how the stripes will fall and then input it digitally?

This is going to look really good with the scales.

Fly4v that is an interesting idea about putting it on a t-shirt to see how it would map. I guess I'm just having trouble thinking 3 dimensional heh. I will see what I can do this weekend and will post feedback next week.
