I haven’t posted progress in a million years. The chain suit is finished. All I have left is finishing the leather and casting the elf ears.

You did Merrill’s full-body chain?! It looks amazing, how did you do it? It must have taken SO much time and work! Err, I should ask, is it ok to reblog this? I just wanted my followers to see it.

Thanks:D Rebloging is fine. Your followers can also see my bathroom:D

It’s taken about 2 years. There are 20,000 aluminum rings (I think it was 16 gauge but I don’t remember.) The instructions for making the sleeves and making it fitted come from here http://homepage.ntlworld.com/trevor.barker/farisles/guilds/armour/mail.htm I also used the pants pattern from the Armor Archive. http://www.armourarchive.org/essays/book__practical_chainmail/practical_chainmail.shtml

I am reblogging this version too so my followers can see it and spread it like wild fire, this took two years of sticking to it and pure dedication

I have literally never seen something more badass, I’m like in cosplay tears over it and I remember you starting this forever ago and I remember liking it back then too. It is amazing to see and I hope I get to see pictures of the final product.

Seriously well done. Oh my frick.

  • Varric: I hear you've been visiting the Viscount's Gardens.
  • Merril: I have! They're astounding and always so empty! Why does no one else go to see them?
  • Varric: Probably because they're private and surrounded by guards?
  • Merril: [gasps] No wonder! I was wondering why those men looked a bit cross.

powersimon:

So much cool Dragon Age fan art of the new stuff from E3 lately.

In the meantime: Merrill from Dragon Age 2! 
Cool seeing the difference between the first concept art and final character in-game. I’ve tried to land somewhere in-between.

All spirits are dangerous. I understood that. I’m sorry that you didn’t.

hauriret:

Messing about with warm ups, colour and composition etc

also Merrill is still my favourite forever

  • wardens: use blood magic to gain the power to defeat the darkspawn
  • fandom: JOIN US BROTHERS AND SISTERS AS WE SHED TEARS WHAT HEROES
  • templars: use blood magic to control and track mages who step out of line
  • fandom: POOR TEMPLARS SO TRAGEDY SUCH CHARACTER DEPTH
  • merrill: uses blood magic to regain her people's history
  • fandom: you stupid bitch you're a danger to yourself and everyone around you, just shut up and do what i say
