Drow harness back by Red-Dragon-Lord Drow harness back by Red-Dragon-Lord
Here is the back side of my drow harness complete with 8 arachnid legs. I though to give it a wow factor leaving rather than coming. I have matching cuisses, greaves and bracer to upload later.

Hey Jan! So good to hear from you! Glad you're back on DA. This is my drow OC. They worship a spider goddess, hence the legs. Glad you like him. I've made a corset for my wife to match but haven't posted it yet. I wanted to get more of her drow ensemble done first. Now I'm taking a break from THAT to work on my rumplestiltskin project. I've grown my hair out just to do him. Its crazy over here.

Absolutely brilliant work. For some reason, I never really thought about aesthetics on the back of a costume... This gives me a new and valuable insight.

This piece looks awesome! Do you use leather for your work or some sort of synthetic? 

I can't get over those details! The barbed leg things are stunning!

Thanks a lot! This is all leather. Its funny, the spider legs were originally going to be the shoulder pieces but they kept flipping around the back and liked how it looked better that way so I changed the design.

Sick!! how do u paint them like that?

Thank you, kindly. I use an airbrush to apply the dye. This project was very tedious.

Relaxed86 Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Ah that explains the flow of it, i dont suppose this effect is doable with just a paint brush?
Because i dont have a airbrush to do so.

Other question, is the color easy to scratc off? or do you use a special coating at the end to ensure it doesnt come off that easy?

Red-Dragon-Lord Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2014
I have seen some folks that are able to feather the dye with a cloth and light strokes. It takes some practice. Some can do it with a brush as well. The dye I use is spirit based leather dye and soaks into the leather. Then I apply a coate of super sheen as a sealer. Its pretty durable. If you scratch deep enough the the flesh color of the leather will eventually show through but that would be extreme. Paints do well on leather too but don't penetrate as deep. If I were to make armor for combat such as sca, I would use dark solid colors much like you see on shoes.

Ah, so you know a bit about drow society. My character is Krill daer Barriath of house Barriath which means spawn of the dragon. He is the worst kind of drow, a true trickster. He has gained considerable power through his conniving, for a male that is. He is adept with weapons and magic but it is his sharp tongue that is his greatest asset. The only one that can keep him in check is Matron Xull'ithra Barriath. LOL, probably too much information.

Thats means a lot! I plan to add more to this harness later. Spiders on the pauldrons maybe. I pulled off of this project to work on my wife's drow matron corset. I'm in the design phase which drives me crazy. lol

:) you and Azmal where the 2 masters leatherworker who inspired me and give me the motivation to start my own leatherworking ;)
so I'll always be admirative about your work, that's a fact :D

Red-Dragon-Lord Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2014
That is an amazing compliment! Especially since Azmal was my inspiration to start leatherworking. In your case, it appears the student exceeds the teacher

I honestly think that Azmal is THE reference for a lot of leatherworker like us, more I speak with people, more I hear the same thing about him :)

But yep, even if I love his work, I have to admit that I've start leatherwork after I find your Dragon armors here on DA.
Being able to do this such awesome, amazing work without all the tools and material from a professionnal store made me believe that's indeed possible, even if I don't have tools or stuff like that :) I've earned confidence and try, and I am here now on DA with some of the most talented people in leathercraft ....... *.* Happy me :)

So thanks to you for sharing all of your amazing works :D
