When I'd made Link in 2015, it really was a challenge for me. I normally don't create larger scaled armor pieces or full suits. Just has never been my taste. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But I remember seeing Magic Armor Link for the first time, seeing a costume of it on the good ol' cosplay.com back in 2013/2014. The design had always stuck with me and whenever I'd think of making a new costume, I'd always consider him. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Link was my first time making a full armor set using so much Worbla, usually just did foam, and even with that I was still really learning.
Every piece was made from Worbla besides the chest plate, and my main problem was, I didn't know how to create all of his textured details. I'd done the sandwiching technique and had done that for the really raised designs, but for the patterns on the bracers, I needed it to be all one piece. Don't know why I didn't just make a base out of foam and shape the Worbla around it, but oh well! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So in the end, all of the textures and designs were created by heating up small strips of Worbla scraps and sculpting them into the bases. I remember this process took hours upon hours and was tedious but I was really pleased with the end result, and do still like the patterns that were created. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sketches of my Space Marine Chapter/Division, The Black Thunderbolts!
Their homeworld is an industrial colony, made up of multiple races and peoples of the Imperium.
Black Thunderbolt Space Marines are characterized by the external visor over the eyes on their helmet.
The Dreadnought is a custom variant: The August Dreadnought.
