XFCN Mod

2014-11-20_06-47-12-1Another sponsored Project and we decided in this mod that we would do a army style theme but something different then just the normal. The case that was chosen didn’t have a window to begin with so we had to cut this out of the side panel and build a totally new side panel out of 5mm thick Aluminum sheet which we was able to do an acid etching design into the metal. We used an air brusher for the paint work on the case and decided to go with a red, white and black style camouflage which tied in well with the red UV acrylic that the engraving is on. Running with the army theme we decided on a SAS character as the engraving as we have never attempted anything like this and we wanted the whole body instead of just the upper proportions which was quite tricky as the details would be really small but we were up for the challenge.

Batman

Batman has been the most featured superhero of our time from blockbuster movies, TV shows, Video games, Cartoons and in millions of comics worldwide so we had to add this poster boy comic legend to our collection. Not the typical Batman image you are likely to see as we wanted to focus mainly on Batman’s mask which really sets him apart from all superheros as its shaped like a bat but we wanted to create a depth within the details of the material so it didn’t look like a flat piece of material. The highlight for me while creating the etching was the eyes because they look so deep set within hes mask that gives him a menacing and fearsome appearance and the way hes cloak drapes down around hes neck, as we was able to create the folds in the material.

BF3.3 Battlefield 3 themed Mod

Another sponsored Project and we decided in this mod that we would do a really large etching piece this time round so I could really get some nice detailing in and cover a large area of the acrylic. The case that was chosen didn’t have a window to begin with so we had to cut this out of the side panel and build a frame type facer out of black acrylic so that the etching could be attached to, we went for a really vibrant green UV panel which allows the etching to pop out at you at all angles. We used a air brusher for the paint work on the case which matches the art work of the Battlefield game perfectly, we added a tank and blown up buildings into the background which really matched the theme we was going for. In the etching I was able to fit in so much detailing such as all the pockets and wiring running across the soldiers chest which was different as I had to be more precise with my shading, but the most enjoyable part for me has to be completing the gun as this was quite technical to make it look as though it’s not flat to the surface of the acrylic panel so i had to be really precise again with my shading. See pics here
