I’m Still Not Dead

Similar name to the last post, I know.

Anyone who has actually followed me, don’t worry, for I am still very much at work on my hobby and craft. I’ve just been under alot of pressure with my senior year and all.

It being my senior year, I needed to take some photos of my works for college portfolios. Here are a few!

I’ll update as soon as I’ve got the time to put some meaningful work into my projects. Thanks for looking!

I’m Still Alive

But unfortunately, nothing in this post is about Portal or Portal 2. Sorry to you Google viewers.

Anyway, this post is merely a teaser of what posts I’m going to be writing up over the next month or so. The posts will contain detailed and in-depth descriptions of all the things I’m teasing here.My camera was also having problems, so a few photos aren’t too great. Sorry.

So let’s begin!

AER-9 Laser Rifle:
Fallout 3

Everyone who may have been following my work via Flickr may have seen that I have recently been working on the AER-9 Laser Rifle from Fallout 3. The deadline for this project hit way too soon for me, and thus it wasn’t finished 100%. Fortunately, I can still finish it, as it was only being submitted for judging at a local fair.

Vault 101 Pressed Jumpsuit:
Fallout 3

This project was undertaken in two days. Pro-tip: Start a clothing project a minimum of a month in advance! This project had the same time constraints that the AER-9 did, and thus wasn’t fully finished either. But I still own it, and it will be completed in the coming weeks.

Strider Diorama
Half-Life 2

This project was my first attempt to see how well I can scratch build models, and I have to say I’m quite pleased with it. Strider is made from Styrene rods, clay, and resin, and the Overwatch soldiers are made from private military contractor 1/35th scale model pieces.

Alyx’s Gun
Half-Life 2

This is a birthday present for my girlfriend (who’s name, coincidentally, is Alyx), who wants to cosplay Alyx Vance sometime in the future.

This was a prop that I’ve been wanting to do for a while, but has been shunted to the side multiple times because of the above projects. What you see below is everything I’ve done, which obviously isn’t very much.

And that is it as far as my current projects go. I’ll be posting in depth updates, complete with better pictures, of each of these projects as I complete them, so stay tuned!
