my picture gallery. I'm not very good about this kind of stuff >_< I tried to get my Link picture up and somebody else's photo showed up. I'm trying again. I don't mean to sound like I'm being rude or something, I'm just frusterated at myself. Here we go again.

It looks like this thread is turning out great already. Well done to PZ for the great work so far! ^_^

Breeface - I'm not sure, but maybe this could be of some help to you? (Clicky, clicky)

Speaking of which, the Japanese Twilight Princess site has recently been updated again with new character turnarounds, which may be helpful to some of you: http://www.nintendo.co.jp/wii/rzdj/index.html

I'm glad to see a new thread borne out of the last, but perhaps would it be even more practical to simply separate the two?
One, the (stickied) tutorial thread,
and then Two... a Zelda specific cosplay thread... first post having a link to the tutorial page.
I do agree that the first page seems to be very general cosplay tutorial-centric versus actual Zelda cosplay information. I'd be all for splitting the topic, since I intended for a new Zelda cosplay thread to stay on the topic of.. well, Zelda cosplay. ^_^; The tutorial list itself is very impressive and would be great to have say, in General Cosplay Help or something.

I have returned with a link! (Gah, I feel like I'm making a pun every time I say "link." XD)

http://www.matrices.net/fursuiting.asp

This might help with mascot costumes, even if it's mainly fursuiting. ^^ It's very in-depth.

So far the only thing that comes off the top of my head is to get the image how you want it, then insert it into AutoCAD at 1:1 and go from there. You should then be able to build a line drawing from the art, presuming going over the reference lines or if you've added anything to your Illustrator file.

If you have Photoshop, I'd imagine you should be able to save the image as a PDF in Illustrator, make it a jpeg (or whatever else you want) in PS, then plop that into CAD.

Not sure what version you're running but you can go from the dropdown, use 'Insert' and pick Raster Image, then select nearly any filetype possible.

Thanks T-R-L, can I call you that? T-R-L? :-p

I'm running on all the latest adobe software, using Mac OS X.

Thanks for the tip about auto-cad, i figured that since my lines are already vector format it might make it easier. They are also already at 1:1

PL,
haha, I will admit i used the shield collection pack a BIT for reference XD, mostly for the sword though. I like the way it looked. And yes, the positioning of my picture was inspired by the packaging XD. But mostly I'm just designing it to have the feel that I want for it. I believe there are probably some very small innaccuracies in there, but hey. Those are my own doing

Hah! That's no problem man. Usually it's just Link, or TRL but really I've seen people throw around the name all kinds of different ways. It's cool.

Ah ok. Chances are that you may have to just see how they import into CAD. Though the vector design may help, depending on if you're connecting to a jig or CNC it may very well require some clean-up work depending on the software used. I used a very similar process for some of my designs actually and I only say this because even though the designs were very good, it still needed some correction to work with the cutting software. If instead you're just planning to plot off at an easy 1:1 to serve as a "pattern", then that's cool too! I guess that's up to you, but just letting you know the hindsights as it really depends on the application as to if you should be worried or not about the details. Heck, at the absolute worst it sounds like the benefit is a much cleaner design to build from and that's always good. Presuming one has the time, the benefit to this is that you hold the masters and thus can't blame for being too detailed for you can step down easily but it's another thing to step up! Assuming you've probably made that file ginormously huge and high-res, I see little reason as to why you (or someone else) couldn't plot it off with ease.

Sounds like you're on the right track!

By the way, this shield pack... I know I should know about it but is it that statuette pack that PL was talking about with TP or is it something else? *sighs* Something else I'm going to have to go find / buy / give blood for!
