Re: KB TDK BELT


though call [sign in to see URL] the more when you consider that when worn, the belt will look just a bit darker, since it will be surrounded by black. (At least I think that's how it works...)

Both look nice, but I'm getting like a «beige vibe» from the bottom one, especially the buckle. The pouch (bottom left) is a bit darker than the top belt, is that it?

You know what, I would put all your pieces on a black cloth, so that all the light (well, not ALL the light) is absorbed by it. But with this pic, I think the color from the bottom left pouch is th one to go [sign in to see URL] think emoticon

Re: KB TDK BELT


See.. in this pic, yes the bottom belt is AWESOME.. but really in person.. its dark. Im waiting to see what the belt owner wants me to do.

An dI would think against a dark background, the belt would look lighter.


The color we need is the color of hard anodized aluminum. This is what the Real Deal is supposed to look like (HA Alum.) and as soon as I can find a paint i like.. this battle will be over...

Re: KB TDK BELT


I like both colors, maybe you should let people have the choice between two colors?
As for accuracy, I have only photos from [sign in to see URL].
The color varies from camera to camera, and the color settings on your monitor are important too. So I cant tell you wich color is nearer to the screen used color.
From my point of view, the more golden, finished belt looks closer to the pictures I have, could have more copper color in it.
Personally I would take the color of the unfinished belt, I dont like it too blinky-blinky on Batman.

Re: KB TDK BELT


So what do you do when someone has asked you to build a belt, you do, and it turns out 1000000x's better than yours? :firemad How do you tell him that he cant have it?? :rollin

Kidding of course. However, this belt i built turned out much better than mine. I think i have settled on a finish, it is a special blend but the color is awesome. my opinion at least.

Please pay no attention to the backs of the links. I didnt want to show this until it was done done.. but im quite pleased and well, i might as well share. Anyway, the backs of the links will be covered in [sign in to see URL] neoprene... as soon as that decides to show up.

I also didnt want to show this shot of the belt until later.. but it looks so cool folded up... ;)

I am very self conscience about the quality and i do let every little thing bug me. So i did take a ton of time extra on this. I think im running 2 weeks past schedule-- i hope to trump this too... but i dont know.. this is a tough act to follow emoticon

Both are beautiful, so I gotta ask: which is which? (edit: I think you prefer the bottom one right? its a very nice color indeed). And it looks like you followed my advice on the black backgroung, thats cool! emoticon

...and the neoprene is a great idea by the way.

They are just the toys were all looking for. Way to go on such excellent work. Up until now NO one has made the links lock together. You could not fold a belt totally if it was fixed to a underbelt, they buckle and the links pop out. Not very flattering. Yours is top quality. :up
