Kiarrens,

Thanks for updating the tutorials! :) TR Rose PMed me about making these a sticky. I apologize for the inability to edit your posts. Admin is working on the errors and hopefully it will be resolved soon so you can fix the links.

Thank you for taking the time to edit and compile the lists. I'll definitely end up using some of these myself!

#6 Kiarrens on 8 years ago

Thanks for the stickies! I'm actually able to edit my posts now, but from the bugs thread it doesn't look like anyone else can. So strange.

#7 cachalot on 8 years ago

Hello!

I have a tutorial I made for Cid Highwind's spear from Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. It's in 3 parts. I've linked part 1 below; there are links to the other two sections from the first tutorial page. (let me know if you need links to the other 2 pages for some reason)

Part 1: [url]http://gerodere.deviantart.com/art/Cid-Highwind-Spear-Tutorial-1-153187875[/url]

Thank you!

#8 iaShakezula on 8 years ago

thanks for updating the tutorial ... its an awesome thread.I love making props and learning new ways to go about it.

Has anyone submitted a tutuorial for dome shape shields , I have ideas how to go about making one with wonderflex and fibergalss or with resin and expanding foam as the backing ....but it would be nice if somebody has made one already.

iaShakezula: I don't recall having seen any specific ones for dome shields, sorry. :\

Got it, Sunarry, Shichikou.

Kiratsukai, your second one linked to the same post as the first (:3) but I went back to your original thread and found the correct post. They're all updated!

#14 Fai'sBlueEyes on 8 years ago

The Cid Highwind Spear link isn't working for me (I'm not sure if it's just me though because the link in cachalot's post isn't working either, the page loads, but the picture itself isn't there).

Sorry all my posts here seem to be just pointing out broken links lol.

Yeah... I think it might just be you. It loads up fine in deviantart for me. :\

Please don't apologize about pointing out broken links!!!! I'd like this to work as well as possible, so any broken links brought to my attention make a more enjoyable prop-making experience for everyone! :)
