And what’s ten years? Well, it’s roughly how long it takes to put in ten thousand hours of hard practice. Ten thousand hours is the magic number of greatness.

Re: Photoshop.


Well, back on topic, what differentiates this suit form any other Sonar? Is it simply a black Sonar? Or were there any tweaks? Also, what material was it made in, foam latex? Looks great if you ask me....

Re: Photoshop.


This is just a black sonar, which was the original intended color for the suit until the last second then it was repainted by Mcfarlen. So we only knew it as silver until the WB Looney Toons movie came out and we saw a repainted silver suit back in black and then you knew it looked soooooooooooooooooo much better in black.

So yes, its simply a black sonar, and I didn't want to call it Black Sonar so I came up with the name Dark Echo, hehe cheesy but it works.

This one pictured was made from F60 skinned F42 because the morron with the molds was having all kinds of issues with running something in only 42 that would cure. So this is much more stiff then it needs to be because of those first 2 layers of 60.

It was originally put together and painted by me I think 3 years ago, the bodysuit was made by Gabriel, the cape was made by me, the cowl was made by me, and if your paying attention to the other thread about the sonar cowl you'll see why the ears aren't straight.

An accident happened that caused the suit to be repainted after he got it from me, but it didn't ruin the look so its ok. Here is what it looked like when it left me. Please ignore the wrong belt sitting on it, I didn't have the sonar belt handy at the time of this photo shoot.

This is another great example of if I knew then what I know now, I could have made this look even better like how I finished the Clooney. But three years ago I was barely getting into the things that I am old hat at now.

I also did a Silver version of this suit about 6 months after this, in a specialized titanium like coloring. It came out well but the suits look best in black to me. Indicative of the character.

And yes I realize in saying that, that I just posted a blue black suit, but that's actually not that far off from the color they like to use in the comics, LOL so no discount there.

Re: Photoshop.


Hey if I sent you a JC F42 Sonar, could you do a paint job on it? Theoretically?

Re: Photoshop.


Theoretically.....


Yes


But getting me to do it is the ruff part, plus I'm not exactly cheap, so painting armor will not be a [sign in to see URL] thing because the shipping to and from is going to be [sign in to see URL] by itself, then there is my prep and finish fee. And you need to realize that your armor an under suit will not exactly match as they do there.

What that photo shows you is armor that was glued down to our under suit then it and the under suit were painted as one. That is the only way it will look right, otherwise you will have tone issues where the suit in some lights will appear to be the same, an in other lights it will be clear that armor and under suit are not the same.

The only way to make a suit look that good or better because my skills have improved is to do it fully assembled.

Soft fins are a must to keep from poking someone by accident since this is an appearance suit. If this was my suit those fins would be made from epoxy so they would be tuff as steel.

Re: Photoshop.


Hey [sign in to see URL] by the way for the quick hijack :hijack:, but are you painting urethane suits ??

In the process of adding cape rings and a liner to my urethane begins cowl, I accidentally got a bit of superglue on it, which messed the finish up a bit. Would it be possible to touch up small spots with that process, or would it be necessary to finish the entire cowl ??
