Leather Armor v4 by Astanael Leather Armor v4 by Astanael
This is the fourth version of my Larp Leather Armor.

Not much is visible to the eyes, but there is many improvements since the v3 :
- I now have a leather tunique underneath,
- the arms are fixed under the inner pauldrons,
- the fur descents are now fixed to the armor, levering the weigh on my hips,
- full legs protection,
- the outer pauldrons are fixed to the inner's one more closely to the neck,
- the helmet and the head protection inside have ear holes, which is essential to get the orders right,
- lost the amber stone of my right glove :(

The whole becomes a little heavy to wear., but really comfy and not too hot. Besides I can bend, sit, jump and run on short distances without problems.

To run on long distances, I need to work on my stamina.

Amazing job on this armor set! Do you take custom armor projects/orders?

This is spectacular. It really just needs a little bit of color variance to make it really pop, but the quality is spectacular. I really like the fur war skirt.

Both V3 and V4 are awesome, although my preference would be V4 mainly of the lighter brown color compared to the previous one, still very awesome and well done.

Thanks a lot !

Real leather has a very specific look and feel : the "patine" which varies greatly with the kind of light used.
I'm not very good at photography, so I can't manage to get the exact rendering. Shooting in my little and obscure flat doesn't help much to get something decent.
I manage to get theses pictures with long exposures, thus the blur.
