PB_Matty's Darth Dragon UPDATE thread

Since everybody is doing Species and other gun update threads I thought I'd contribute my current Dragon project to the battle to see who can build the hottest, tricked out 05'd timmy.

Parts are going out to Precisionpb for anno today or monday, and other than that it's pretty much set to go with the following parts:

Hybrid Hedlock
Alias lpr with VP piston and Alias block
Torpedo with VP piston
Empire Frame
Species Trigger guard and trigger (Custom trigger in the works)
Hybrid Bumper ram cap
Dangerous Power RAPS on/off asa
CP gauges (1 for lpr, 1 for hpr)

2k6 Empire 1.5 board
2k6 Eyes
Empire Balanced Ram sleeve and poppet
Eigenram
Orange bolt

Here is the inspiration for the anno wich will be totally wicked and one of a kind...

Okay...

Here are the images I'm going to use, this is what I pulled off Darth's head. Placement is the next issue. Anyone who has some halfway decent graphic software, feel free to take a stab at it. A good photoshoppable dragon can be found @ www.precisionpb.com/mwhitt.jpg

i dont think you should put shapes on it
just do a red/black theme
like make the dragon head red (maybe with some shapes on it)
and then the rest of the parts mixed colours

i think a really cool thing would be for the bottom tube, to do every (or every other) swoosh black, if the rest of the body is red and then at the back of the top tube to make the flat parts in between the raised parts black and then have the eyes and the inside of the mouth black and do the other parts in either red of black

i dont know how to use photoshop to well so sorry bout the crappy pics but it's just to give you an idea of what i mean

Everys woosh (did this after the other, and I didnt want to have to undo the work I did, so I just guess where and how big the swooshes were)


Every other swoosh

Alas if I had photoshop or something similar I would be furiously placing shapes and probably putting a few others on as well. I do have some ideas on placement, and some other inspirations for you to work off on the disc that I'm sending in with the gun tho Rick.

I'm thinking some of the shapes will go on, but not necessarily all of the ones from his face. There will probably be others tho. Thought about the just black and red parts route, but it's been done before.

Think of it more as I'm giving the entire Dragon Sith tattoos similar to the ones Darth Maul has. Obviously if you try to directly transfer over just the tattoos from his face some will work and some will not. All depends on placement, angle and postitioning as compared to the other tattoos.

I actually used photoshop! I just dont know how to use it properly
And black and red has been done before, but i haven't seen what i suggested doing! (the black spots on the milling) but I dont know if that can be done but if it can i think it'd look really good, especially if you could fade the red into the black parts!

I had an intitial photoshops somewhat similar to that...as you said very hard and spendy to do.

My plan will be less expensive, and will be even more unique. Trust me, It will be a very sweet gun when all is said and done

whatever you do, do not halfass this. if you cut corners, it will turn out looking like garbage. mind as well spend the extra money and do it right

Oh definetly not.

An anno like the PS above was going to run around $350 to make it look right tho. The anno I'm planning will look at least as good for a lower price, but still not cheap or half assed.

I'm sure Rick will do it right

what spyderowner did was what i was going for!
he did a little better job with it, mine was just a rough idea
but since darth's face is red with black "tattoo's" on it, i think it should be red body, with the black details (opposite of spyderowner)
