Skull Knight Berserk by Shoko-Cosplay Skull Knight Berserk by Shoko-Cosplay
Hi guys,
Skull knight is an enigmatic character from Berserk.
Jerôme wanted to do him since many years.
After his sadness of last july, Ben call him for cheering him and Jerome decided to do the Skull knight 18days before the con "Paris cosplay".
It was a crazy project for so few time...
Jerome made very fast the pieces and bring me his work in order I can made finitions and paint job.

He told me " do as you wish".I can imagine skull knight is in metallic silver armor in the manga, but I though " he is in bone... why can't I do old bone aspect?".

And I create a color scheme very strange based on white, soft yellow, yellow, brown effects.
Finally, I was happy of my choice, it was " different" from what Jerome expected but he liked the result.

I think he made some proportions mistakes for the legs but, the costume seem accurate.Skull knight gave him good memories and cheer him in not give up the cosplay hobby.

After the con, I discovered this photo...I don't know the photographer but...he create an awesome foggy background very accurate to the Berserk atmosphere, I was really amazed!
I really like this picture I wanted to share our latest creation.
I don't made many things on the skull :/

Amazing pict by YLS Novak.

Woooow, AMAZING!!

I found this looking for Skull knight pics on google because I also want to cosplay him. Do you know which materials used your friend to make the costume? Thank you very much! I'm still thinking about the colors, metal or old bones, but this is definitely great!

We used foam for skull knight IN 1CM Sheet. I hesitate a lot for the choice of colors and big berserk fans don't like it because for them, skull is in metal armor... :/ it is that's why I put a black and white picture ^^ I wish you good luck for the project, it is really hard to adapt on body. :) thank you very much for the kind appreciation!

Thanks for the detailed answer, it will really be useful in the future. I was planning to use foam anyway, but it's great to know Jerome did it with foam, too ^^

Thank you very much!

It was a bit unusual to dare a " old bone" effect on paint job but I think it was original for this character.I follow with passion the manga ^^ I can't wait for the new volume! Thank you for your kind appreciation ^^

The old Scanlation sight I used to go to read it went down a year or so ago and I never found another place that had... (my local book and comic book stores don't carry the series). I love this series though... It easily inspired a huge range of emotions in me and that was just with the Anime!

The new movies they're releasing look EPIC and beautifully drawn. So hopefully the series can pick up a bit of a larger following and we'll see more great costumes. =D

Merci, on n'a pas eu beaucoup de commentaires ou réactions sur le Skull, du coup je ne sais pas si il est si bien que ça ou si c'est un fail ^^' le schéma de couleur était assez osé... peut être que les puristes désaprouvent :/

:iconinfectedguili:
InfectedGuili Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2012
Je te rassure, les puristes ne désapprouvent pas du tout, ces couleurs là ont déjà été testées sur un Garage Kit par un pro américain ([link]) et les réactions des puristes se sont toutes traduites par des ramassages de machoires.

Le Skullknight est un personnage ambigu et énigmatique tiré d'un manga extrêmement violent et sombre, donc beaucoup moins "populaire" que des personnages tirés de shônen classiques. Ne cherche pas plus loin l'explication...

C'est du très bon boulot de costume ET de peinture !!!

Coucou ^^ j'ai regardé le lien, terrible, et sa teinte pour l'aspect os est bien mieux que la mienne, mais c'était pas simple car ce genre de rendu, sort mal en vrai et pour des photos.Du coup j'ai pas mal utilisé de dégradés marrons orangés pour que ça ressorte mieux.De base les pièces étaient blanc cassé, jaunis et ça faisait fade :/ Pas évident quand on sait que le visuel sur scène risque d'être peu " travaillé".Donc j'ai assez abusé du orangé et sur certaines photos, il se voit à peine.Je ne regrette pas d'un cité.En tout cas j'avais vu ce kit sur homemedia4U du skull, je l'avais trouvé superbe^^

En tout cas, je suis fan de berserk :3 j'ai vraiment une grosse attente sur la sortie de chaque volume, pire j'ai toujours peur que l'auteur décède avant de finir son oeuvre, c'est carrement l'oeuvre de sa vie quand tu vois qu'il y est depuis 87 o_o
En tout cas merci beaucoup pour ta critique constructive ^^ préviens nous lorsque tu auras fini ton Guts =)

Tu as fait du super boulot, avis d'amateur !!! ;)

J'attends aussi avec impatience chaque tome du manga, et en ce moment, il en faut de la patience... Le(s) nouveau film(s) à venir nous fera(ont) patienter.
J'espère finir mon armure cette année, j'espère...

J'aurais quand même du faire un paint job plus proche du mec maintenant que je le vois ^^' mais bon de toute façon c'est fait...puis ça a plu à des gens, en ce qui concerne les films, j'ai vraiment hâte! En tout cas prends ton temps, ce n'en sera que meilleur =) je suis sûre que ce sera très beau!

Y a pas de pression à avoir ^^'''' puis comme j'ai dit, chacun sa technique, ce qui compte c'est le résultat, et ton Guts est super prometteur, rien ne vaut de prendre son temps et être satisfait du rendu de son travail une fois fini ^^

Merci beaucoup Ashura! J'étais super impréssionnée quand j'ai vu la photo, et je ne savais pas que c'était le compagnon de Gaëlle ^^'' le monde est petit!!
Il a vraiment un " don" pour les retouches et un bon style de photos.J'étais contente du coup de découvrir sa galerie.

Mais vous êtes les meilleurs amis du monde, difficile à croire qu'il aie fait ça "très rapidement".
Je suis content de voir qu'il a encore le désir de produire de ces magnifiques costumes. Ç'aurait été une grande perte pour le milieu.

(Et merci à la peintre, airbrush ?)

Coucou ^^ bah je trouve qu'il a été très rapide pour réaliser les pièces, mon seul boulot a été d'unifier, colmater les pièces, poser une base et peindre :_: j'ai du faire ça en 4 jours.Tu as vu juste c'est une bbase en aérosol plus mélanges à l'aéro, comme si je travaillais un kit.Je voulais faire un kit du skull comme j'aime le perso, au final, je l'ai peint en taille réelle xD c'était trèèèès long! Mais bon j'ai eu beaucoup de plaisir à changer de style j'avoue ^^ Là, je suis peu présente car très investie dans les projets de cet été.J'espère que ça plaira et que les gens seront contents de voir ces personnages ^^

Thank you very much for your kind appreciation ^^ For the Berserk, sadly it isn't impossible because me and my friend are too small for the Gut's body, I think it should be ridiculous on us ^^''' sadly... because the Berserk is awesome! è_è

The berserk armor, is one of most awemose armors in that manga. But Guts is so big that is to hard to find some one whit the skill and body tipe to make that cosplay. Maybe some day you can make the ghiffith armor, that awesome too
