KH boots: Akuroku side by GemDragon421 KH boots: Akuroku side by GemDragon421
THEY'RE FINALLY FINISHED ;_______;

for my beloved...

damn these took FOREVER. 50+ hours all together, roughly 30 just on the akuroku one.

100% acrylic textile, even the outlining (even though i realized i could have saved 10 hours by using a sharpie... ^^;)

and yes, i'm modeling the shoes. my feet are about five sizes smaller.

this also shows the inside of the left shoe, which features Sora and Riku. CURSE SORA AND ROXAS' EVIL HAIR I NEVER WANT TO PAINT THEM EVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!

After staring at these four for a long time, anything Square Enix disgusts me (i've been playing final fantasy in between to keep my sanity).

i'm just an amateur shoe painter... these are my first pair (this is before the protective spray).

I'M NOT TAKING COMMISSIONS FOR SHOES I WAS JUST EXPERIMENTING.

Hello :D they look really great ^v^ I want to buy me boots and paint them too, if u don't mind it, but i fear that the acrylic might stiff the cloth up.... is that true or are there methods to prevent it?

no they don't get stiff. i mean, i used generic textile paints and they get a little more stiff but they still flop around a bit :3

i'm not an expert and i have skirted the professional ways because they usually involve toxic fumes and i don't think my room mates appreciate that. i have asked about acrylics because the paint i use tends to rub and kind of bleed if i use a white canvas but acrylics do make them stiffer. i'm not suggesting using another medium but paint specifically for textiles id a good choice/a paint that soaks into the fabric. i AM suggesting a viscous paint that's not too runny and is thick if you scoop/squeeze it out. there are methods of making them stiff or not stiff but they are beyond my grasp because im pretty content with the paint that i use. i do spray a protective water proof sealant but that doesn't make the shoes any stiffer than when they wer blank. whew. i only painted five pairs of shoes but this is what i gathered from experience.

These are really freakin sweet. I can feel the expression radiating from them!! ;D No seriously, these are beautiful, and it shames to think I ever gave up on a project half as difficult as this. I wish you much luck and patience in your future projects. :) Which Final Fantasy were/are you playing??
