View Full Version : Robot hand

Hey all, I could use some advice. You see I'm making this cyborg costume for AnimeFest this coming LaborDay, and it's all pretty much done except for a few things. I have some electro translucent wires coming in to give it a cool cyber-esque glow, and the wires will mainly be shown on my right arm, where I will have a glove I've made to make it look like an robot arm. But here's where I run into the problem, I have no idea how to make it look like it's a robotic arm, save rapping the live wires around the glove, which would be lame if that's all I did. I've gone through the web, searching at cyborgs from movies, looking at pictures of the Borg from Star Trek, but still nothing will come to me. Does anyone have any ideas on how I might find some inspiration, or have any tutorials from people who might have done this?

Look around at motorcycle gloves. They come in a variery of shapes, sizes and colors. I'm more fond of the road armor kinds myself.
