To start things off...My name is Corey...Something strange about me is that, the use of the word "I" is not in my vocabulary. It may be silly to some, but, instead, "Eye" has taken its place.

So. Hello. Eye am an artist of sorts

Eye enjoy creating things all the time, whether it be some new costume for a convention, a random sketch while Eye'm at work, Or a fusion of circuit board onto canvas. But Eye'm not limited to just those, no. Infact, in the next few months Eye'm aiming to get into hobbies such as Insect Pinning and Taxidermy. Though, Eye don't like mammals. So Eye imagine alot of reptiles, amphibians, and aquatic creatures, encased within some viscous liquid in a strange jar.

In High School Eye was the loner kid that sat by himself and drew, constantly. 8-14 hours a day in some extreme cases. Eye actually wanted to have my own comic book series at that time. But, after Eye graduated, Eye began to draw less and less... Occasionally Eye would come up with something, but not too much, and not too frequent as Eye used to

Now...Five years later, Eye've gotten into Costume making for Science Fiction Conventions and junk. Eye Do a few other things here and there. Eye've a series of Canvases in the making, all electronic themed. They cover an entire wall of my apartment. Eye'd like to one day show you them. Then again, Eye also am working on a series of sculptures for a series Eye've concocted...And then there's the bugs too...Eye've got alot on my plate and these things can't be rushed

Who knows what Eye'll post next
For the past 2 years, Eye've chosen to build a brand new suit of Power Armour for conventions to show off my abilities in prop making and fabrications. Given the lengthy process it has taken these past two years to create an entire entourage of armour plates and each year, a better quality suit. Eye've come to the decision, that this third year, why should eye build a third of entirely different legion, and neglect the other 2? So, in result of this pondering, Eye have decided to build armor accessories and wargear expansions. Improvements in details, and refabrications of easier parts and lighter materials.
For starters, the World Eater legion armour; Its striking in color and animosity in all out detail and appearance. However, Eye feel that the weaponry could use some "Zazz". some of the details on the arms, could use some form of ornate detail, something more ceremonious in design. The suit is huge, and almost as heavy as the first, probably close to 80lbs in total, which sounds agonizing, but, compared to my first, its 30lbs lighter! So what eye'm thinking now, is a relaunch. Eye've been looking into a sturdy, yet light weight frame for each pualdron, 3/4 inch plywood should do the trick. Just simply cut out an arch shape in the size appropriate for the massive amour section. As for the chest and torso? RIF foam should do the trick. Also, eye've been lookin into Thermaplastic sheeting, light, and entirely shapeable to the curvature of the pualdrons.
   But, a simple relaunch is like doing the same thing over again. It's not what's going to be the big hit. It's been decided now, that eye'm going to do Armour upgrades, differing set ups for each convention. So eye'll now announce, Tactical Dreadnaught Armour has been decided. The concepts are drawn, the materials are selected. Eye'm ecstatic!
    On top of this decision, it's also been added into the plans, an Assault Marine loadout, though, being Chaos, Raptor. Styles have been inspired by the wonderful Greyall, the ingenious creativity and masterfully ornate designs are a direct influence into these up and coming tasks. Now however, going against building entire new suits of Power Armour, and instead, upgrading to new technology, it will both save money and time.
  These new routes in fabrication will accelerate my building time, giving me only a few months for large scale pieces. Allowing me to produce more weapons. In fact, plans are up and coming for a multitude of weapons to the arsenal; Storm Bolter, Chainsword or Gladius, Storm Shield, Combi-Bolter with Melta/Plasma/Flamer loadout, Plasma Cannon, Power Ax, and possibly even Lightning claws... Big things are coming

Uhmm I might be wrong, but I believe it was a Warhammer 40k group, some of the ones I watch are Warhammer 40k qoutes, crux terminatus among others I can't remember right now. Sorry I couldn't be of much help!

absolutely! your depictions of Terminator Armour give me tons of ideas for future builds. You really don't see many details in terminator fan art, however, your work disproves this. Thanks for the inspiration, looking forward to seeing what else you come up with
