well since i never really made a non lego custom and though i never really liked the mid age i became a hufe fan of the asassins creed franchise and now i´m trying to customize a lotr the two towers legolas figure to an altair figure
but the stupid thing is, that i could really need some help on the details of the figure, belt, weapons, etc
so i would really apreciate some help, e.g. what the heck is pastel??

and one big thing will be the switchblade...since i have no clue what to use as an inspiration ^^

A pastel is usually a crayon

thats what i thought...

the only difference is that snobbish artists prefer to use "pastels" not crayons...

maybe it has something to do with the fact that 4 year olds use them...i dunno...

you don´t have to talk only about the pastels, you can also give me an inspiration how to make a slide for the ********** * *** ** hidden blade, since i accidently ramed my scissor into my hand while cutting a form for it
and does anyone here know a figure with a belt simmilar to altairs?

Don't be stupid.
Pastel is very different from a crayon.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pastel

It has nothing to do with being "snobbish" either.

pastel = crayon that is partially melted and gets everywhere

artists just wanna get dirty http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

pastels are typically oil based and have nothing to do with wax.... silly infidels. but i wouldn't use pastels if i was you, they are only good if you want the changes you make to be non preferment http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif good luck.

ok i bought another new white citadel games workshop color and guess what
it sticks on the figure without any problems ^^
but in any case, this (http://www.heldenshop.de/images/tobias/81635Legols_450.jpg) is the legolas i edit , well actually this one here (http://i12.ebayimg.com/01/i/02/d1/6b/ad_1.JPG) but the great thing about tybiz was, all figures had the same base types, but they
never really looked the same (http://www.theonering.net/scrapbook/group/972/view/8411)
i also bought this one over here (http://www.heldenshop.de/images/tobias/TBZ-81560-Ga.jpg) today , since i thought i could use that coat
(again it´s not like in the picture, mine is creme, beige whatever....darkwhite, not grey)
nevertheless i finished the white color and sprayed it (don´t you ever try this vanish, it makes you loco)
and i hope to cut the coat now without any problems
and if anyone has an idea for legolas, i mean altair, i mean HIS BELT (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/a/a9/AC-Altair.jpg) , tell me

and your sig is great

i got that figure XD

i duno about the belt..you could try making one, or look on ebay lol

btw, what you going to do with the hair?

i wanted cut the hair and paint it like with my lego altair, but legolas looks that f*ckin cute with his blond hair so i just left it like that
took me some time though to make a hood, but i like it now and luckily i found a red leatherbag in a yardsale ^^
but i tried to use metal for the belt but it took all the flexibility and now i think i´m gonna paint the red leather a bit
but i think in 1 or 2 hours i´ll have the first picture(s)
