My Squire's armor

Wamted to hop off of my cosplay for a minute to show u good folks what i have also been working on for my GF's nephew, he will be the "Squire" to my DragonScion knight.  So without further ado here is his breastplate!

 Here i measured out Daniels chest/ shoulder and back area and made a quick foam pattern.  Also cutting out the area for his head to pop thru.

I drew out some simple scroll patterns on the pattern so i can see if the idea i had in my head would look good on it, me likey!

Ok Here i have overlaid my pattern and cut it out of the eva foam, next will be to draw in the scroll pattern onto the eva as i have on the foam pattern.

Here i used a simple roll of painters tape to quickly draw an accurate circle pattern.

Scroll Pattern marking is done, time to do the actual scroll work!

I cut out thin strips of eva foam, and glued it along the circular pattern i drew upon the eva foam.

 After i finished some of the scroll work, i added a neck guard to the front and back of the head opening, so my Gf's son could look mysterious lol.

 After making the neck guard i proceeded to do more scroll detail along the neck guard on the front and back.

 I added a few embellishments to it which will look amazing after i smoothcast it and paint it.

 I added the same triangle glyph to the back of his neck guard so it flows with the same symbol that i have in many spots on my armor, and another embellishment back there as well.  Next step is smoothcast and painting!
