Otachi9 by Crovv
Otachi9
----------THIS IS A WIP----------

Edit: actually looking at this picture it looks much different in person. The photo (probably because of our crappy camera), only seems to show the larger skin ...blobs? The skin is much more detailed but you can only really see the bigger bumps which makes it look less appealing. She looks much better in person, I swear! Only seeing big bumps really is a bummer. You can see some medium ones, but I spent hours with a sewing needles making TINY bumps to make the texture better, and those are the ones you can't see at all. Big and some mediums are visible.


More progress on my Otachi Costume which has to be done by the start of April. 
Did work on her skin.   Otachi  isn't necessarily black all around, she is some times shown as such, but other times a sort of dark steel-blue-grey-black...I dunno, but I do what I can and black is what I can do, I do not have the materials to start dying my own fabrics and all that jazz. I feel black is a fairly accurate representation of her and the dark will help her LEDs stand out even more. As I am making the costume I DO have some artistic liberty and I'd hope to not get bashed for making her purely black. -I'm working VERY hard on hand painting on scales to the fabric I'll be using for her. Each scale is individually painted on just like on her face. Each one done by hand with either help of a pencil or a sewing needle depending on the size of the scale-

The teeth are no where near done, I just slapped some lighter coloured paint on there so one could see where the teeth are. Otachi doesn't have white teeth by a long shot, lol.
She does have the nose horns but they are just a base right now in white styrofoam you can't see in the image. I have her LEDs for the horns wired up, I just need to attach them and build up the final horn shape. That will be next on the list. 

This was originally a round nose dragon blank from DVC that I obviously HEAVILY edited. Tounge and LED eyes (painted by me) also from DVC.

Update: added preliminary nose horns made out of Styrofoam as a base. Yes they are small, but that's because this is just the core of the horns. I need to glue the LED nodules to the Styrofoam base then using Free Form Air to finish the horns which will then make them larger and more appropriately sized.

I also added flap...side...things, they kind look like wing flaps, lol, but that's what the ref images call for I'm just trying to do the best I can. To try and spare weight, I made the flap thingies out of craft foam and added a think layer of Free Form Air over them to allow them to keep their shape. The black plate right in the middle needs some touch up work and re-shaping.

This was originally a round nose dragon blank from DVC, it also houses a uv blue fat dragon tongue and LED eyes (painted by me) from DVC!

SHE CAN SEE!  Added in Otachi's eyes. They are Yellow LED eyes from DVC, although yellow LED really looks more orange -shrugs- but hey, you work with what you got, right?

Original mask was a DVC round nose dragon with much editing, sanding, drilling, and re-sculpting.

Interests
Well it's done with, next up is Connecticon! I'll be wearing my dragon suit again for conecticon with some minor adjustments to make the head more comfortable, and I may add more details to the chest and shoulder armour (thinking on adding a tail,  but we'll see).

If you were at Anime Boston 20014 and got a pic or video of me, I'd love to see! My fiancee was supposed to be taking lots of pics for my parents but came back with like... 5? He was too busy keeping mae safe from crowds and helping me with photos for other people (calling out how many people were still taking photos and where I need to turn to help people get better photos). Due to all his efforts elsewhere helping me, we have no pictures! If you have any or have seen any, please share! We'd (aka my mom and dad) would love to see them!
