Mysterio Bracers – Paper Prototype

Mysterio bracers/gauntlets model from paper
The photo to the left is my model for what I am trying to re-create. The photo on the right is my first prototype. What’s that you say, it looks like you just cut up a few pieces of paper and taped them together? Well, yes, yes I did. But I verified that they make the correct shapes, in the correct size, and soon I will cut them out of craft plywood using the same measurements. But first, I have to trick one of my graphically inclined friends into doing the circle style crosshatching. The curved hooks can not be done out of 2D material (paper/plywood) so I am making a plywood hook shape as the skeleton that I will fill out with modeling clay or plasticine to give the (8) hooks a curved 3D appearance.
