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??

i got frustrated with kh2. I like advent children and all, but it makes me sad when people see the movie and then think they know all about final fantasy.

Aww thats actually pretty nice of you! :) What all ones have you played?

mad?

i found okami at the local gamestop so i got pretty excited. the brushstrokes frustrate me but i thoroughly enjoy it so far. i want to make something for that now that i see how fascinating the storyline is.

basically all the games i got i havent finished yet.
im not that into button masher games cuz my fingers cramp but i played nightshade and dynasty warriors and found combo attacks are so much fun

sounds fancy! make something for final fantasy? I would be all over that. What happens if you mess up (i mean, in pencil you just erase, but i'm having trouble quite picturing how okami works?)

Haha I'm kinda like that to!! i think the only games iv'e EVER beaten all the way through are Spyro Riptos Rage, Spyro A new Beginning, FF9, and I just finished Jade Empire. Anyway, ive never played Nightshade. Whats it about? I kinda got into Soul Caliber. (for button masher

its the sequel to the game shinobi. it was released in japan as kunoichi but since america sucks the translation got botched. its basically the female version of shinobi but i couldnt find shinobi after i got it. its one of those games where u go as far u can with no general plotline. if u die u just start over from the beginning of that level. the dude at the gamestop was like this is the hardest game and all i said was F**************************************.

ive wanted to play soul caliber but i really do suck at video games. i went to college with the idea of character design for video games but i might go into comic art.

I literally just screamed "I want those shoes"
My dog woke up, barked, which made me cat hiss at him and, in turn, woke my Mom up. She ran into my room and yelled out "What's wrong?" That woke up my Dad, whom also came running and slammed his door shut. THAT woke up my sister who freaked out and started crying which made my dog bark some more... and pretty much, you know the story.

I explained to them, kindly, that I was just looking at some shoes and I was not, in fact, being murdered... >_>
