I used a pair of plain black welding goggles for the base and hand painted the outsides with acrylics. The connector you see in between the lenses is a small piece of split loom conduit tubing that I slipped over the bridge of plastic. It just serves as an aesthetic purpose.
Ha! Wow, that's really creative. I have a tendency to gather random crap from my nearby junkyard, but I can never see most of it as anything more than junk. :/ Here, you've found items and turned them into art. Brilliant!
Sorry, had to be done. In all seriousness though amazing work! It has that Orky feeling down to a tee. The yellow stripes seem a little off, but if the paint is anything like the yellows I'm familiar with then they must have been a pain to work with. And in light of the great check pattern work you did who am I to say anything?
But what I'm REALLY impressed by are the Ork skull glyphs on the lenses. How did you ever get them on so neatly?
Thank you very much for the critique. ^_^ Yeah, the yellow stripes I admit were kind of rushed towards the end due to Christmas approaching and I quickly needed to wrap it. lol The paint wasn't all that difficult to work with. To give it that genuine Warhammer feel, I used actual Citadel acrylic modeling paint with a top coat of satin varnish. The spikes and the silver part of the goggles I coated with Mud and Sepia washes also. The glyphs were hand drawn on pieces of white paper and colored in with sharpie and ink pen. Nothing too spectacular. Thanks again for looking at my work.
