Here’s the work I’ve got on the arms so far. I’m not quite satisfied with the way they turned out, so I might wind up reworking them, but hopefully not.
I’m planning on joining the different segments with some chain mail, but I’m holding off on that til the end when I’m rigging him.
I’ve also uploaded a close up of the head, since you think something about it didn’t look quite right.
As for how he can bend in the middle, most of the plate mail I’ve seen tends to be a solid chest piece down to the waist, with a belt and leggings. If he’s having trouble bending when I get him rigged, I guess I’ll have to make some changes, but I think I’ll leave him like this until then, unless anyone has a suggestion to make it better.
Next up is hands, then the waist area and the legs.
