Bracer build from youtube

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEqofmYyrz0 fella calls it dwarven, but I dunno, it looks good but there's some bits that I might have done differently, like maybe stitching the fur in place and not just using contact cement, and possibly I would've contacted someone to get the bits he did with rub ...
