    As you guys may be aware, I´m on a quest to make the full Avengers team ( minus the Hulk, I guess....) to the Premiere of the Avengers here.

    That being said (and resaid in other threads), I would like to show you the work I´ve done today, the first day I´ve done any work at all on Captain America.

    First I`ve made his stripes - here´s my friend who´ll wear the suit with them on -

    They took me a couple of hours, for this afternoon was rather busy, but then again, I think they turned out OK. If I may be so bold in suggesting, I think you guys might benefit from looking at it full-size here - https://picasaweb.google.com/104388...hkey=Gv1sRgCMCKxvG94932Tw#5723355600428226818 . The texture is way more visible full-size.

    And so I started fixing my work place and I thought, heck, I may just make something else since I am here. So I went to the gloves. I didn´t make the gauntlets yet, I plan to do that really soon, but only the gloves might be fine to get a feeling as to what I´ve got in store for myself.

    Anyway, as soon as I went for reference I notice that the things are insanely detailed, and so I had to draw a line. I may make them as detailed as they actually are, or I may make the deadline, but not both, so after this compromise, I made these -

    Which I felt that would yield the result I needed without being too much of a hassle to make. Those took me about two or three episodes of Doctor Who to make, so as you guys imagine, the time just flew by.:)

    HA! the Time just flew by!...

    er.... it was funny in my head.... sorry, it IS 4:11 AM....

    And with these I start another build..... hopefully not to embarass you guys with my presence.... :)

    :)

    Guys, sorry for the quick update, but I had very little time to work today. I think that I could work, tops, about 3 hours. I had to stay a bit with my daughter, she will be 7 tomorrow *yay*, and then when I started, I had to stop about an hour later to get to a car dealership with my girlfriend, which ate some hours off my working schedule, but I managed, however, to come home after that, watch a movie on Leonardo da Vinci´s life and start watching Cleopatra (with Liz Taylor.... man.... I had NO idea how beautiful that woman was.... but I digres....) and all the while I could make these -

    [​IMG]

    They are all working pouches, with magnetic closures. I figured that if there was this metal thingy, why not make it work for something useful?:) The Belt is still open to double-check for the waist-length of my friend who´ll wear it, only then I´ll close it in the correct manner.

    More updates on any of the Avengers Initiative Projects tomorrow, lads and lassies :) Tomorrow I am quite sure it´ll be a day for Hawkeye :)

    How did you make the gauntlets and the pouches, they look great?

    I am glad you liked them, but even if they look nice, they are, as you will be able to see in these pictures, WAY too big, so I am going to destroy them tomorrow to make other pair. As for the pouches, they are wrong too - Wrong shade of blue, so I am going to cover them with the right material OR I will make them all over again, that´s something that remains to be determined at the moment.

    I did, however, have some nice progress, nonetheless. I hope you like seeing these pictures :)
