Challenge 4: Red (update)...

Sun Feb 19, 2012, 9:37 AM

*shuh* :phew:
i never thought that this model took me so long
i really have to say this
calling this model an SD (Super Deformed) is defentily an insult
this has nothing to do anymore with SD
"Miniatur Version" i would say :D
meanwhile i'm working a month on this on this and i still have so much pieces left
but through this i came to a new idea

do you remind this journal ?…
i build the SD RX-93 first before i start the big one
and why should i change my behavior ;P
i will build the big one, it will be the one from julius (paper-replika)
even i have the problems with the colored tabs
but because Photoshop is a gift from heaven and with the pre-work on the SD version i know what to do :)
i'm also gonna convert the pdf in jpg and just delete the color out of the tabs
even there are over 60 pages, it is more less work as to recolor the other one
where i have to build it without instructions
also a good thing, i don't need to calculate around, because the pages have this time all the same size

but first i have to finish my other stuff ;)

ok, shit happend :(
the model don't work :worry:
right at the moment i combine the pieces of the boosterpack and i noticed
the pieces don't fit
some are to small some to big
i have a massive calculating error in my plan

i converted the pdf pages into jpg
i did this with photoshop
during this process i changed the size of the witdh to 3000px for all images
problem, photoshop didn't used the border of the sheets
it used the border of the pieces
what equals when the pieces are just going to the center, they will also increased
because i increased just the area where are the pieces are

damn it!
but ok, i anyway not very happy with the result of some pieces
i will change the size and redo the model :)

little update :)
printed the sheets out right atm
and it looks good so far
the red is very intense, the grey a little bit dark but that's ok
and the important thing
the pieces fit with the others
was a bit worried about cause photoshop erased the page borders ^^;
today i will start the first parts of the Sinanju
very excited about :D

very productive day today :aww:
i finished the recoloring of the first gundam model and i think this should be good :)
i'm really curious if this is working because through the converting from pdf to jpg i used Photoshop
the jpg have all a width of 3000 pixel but all a different height :confused:

i tested it out of a few pieces if they have the right size and "in theorie" this should work
i'll see :)

ok, ok, ok...
today i started with the first pieces of the Gundam
AND IT'S JUST HORRIBLE :iconnoeslaplz:
i really don't know how people can even work with cardboard
ok there are no white edges but if you not even able to bend the paper good enough, then it makes no sense :|
so plan B
i convert the sheets to jpg and recolor them what gives me more advantages
so i'm also able to cut the tiny pieces without splitting the paper and stuff
the color is shiny because of the laser print
and the importat thing
i see where i have to cut
black lines on black paper
pffff who had this idea ? :D

it seems to be that we got a winner here ;)
ok, because i don't wanna keep you in the dark i will tell you what i'm gonna do in the next ....weeks :faint:
it's not about pokemons
it's about Gundams
through a lucky coincidence i found some really cool SD Gundams which i wanna build
these gundam models are based on colored sheets
or in other words
if you wanna print them, you have just black lines
the first one will be the MSN-06-Sinanju

at the moment i try to sort the pieces out which parts are based on which pieces and shit
it's like try to solve a rubik cube because there is no instruction
just a pdo where i have to select the pieces
a lot of pieces
i can tell you, this is just way too complicated for a SD Gundam :omg:

but it's a good training for an upcoming model i wanna build, which is also based on colored sheets and much more complicated ^^;

with this model i will go a bit back to the beginning and make some instruction shots, just if you wanna build that later on your own ;)

(P.S. pls son't ask me here for the sheets, i don't know if i have the right to share them public)

This is awesome! Along with many other mecha series, I'm a die-heart fan of the Gundam series. I really look forward to looking at this while it's being built, as well as eventually building it myself.

i'll make some more photos this time as usual
without an instruction it is just ugly to build
but even with the pdo and it's a great challenge ;)

And awesomeness ensues.
