I would lament the lack of camo, but then, my mind is finding it hard to resist the enticing mix of Tan and dark gray. Also, shame on them for not wearing subdued flags.
Ooohhh it's beautiful.

Heh, looks good, Shimmy!! :) Is the HK M6 carbine a fictional weapon? I haven't seen any real carbine that looks quite like it.

His mechanical joints tell the whole story. Truly, "fully suited in armor." Nice detail, as always. And oh yeah, Carbines for the win.

When I started sketching out the first pose I didn't get far before I decided to reference them. 2 different photos for 2 poses with slight adjustments. I'm a bit rusty with the dynamics of my people so I think the move helped this one a ton.

Is the armored variant a powered suit or just additional plating? It looks like it might be, but I can't really tell.

:iconshimmering-sword:
Shimmering-Sword Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
It is powered. I'd think only lightly though. I felt weird trying to call it power armor :D

:iconjerik666:
jerik666 Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, I can say the same. Ever since Fallout, I can't help but picture the T-51b armor whenever I try to say it. It just makes it seem... odd, since they coined the term for it.

Shimmering-Sword Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I don't relate the term "power armor" to anything, I do consider it something heavier though. Are you sure they coined it? I'd expect any number of books to have used that term beforehand.

The oldest usage of "powered armor" goes back to E.E. "Doc" Smith's Children of the Lens (1947). Smith had already featured "space armor" that was proof against rifle fire and death rays in Triplanetary (1934), but those were not power-driven, just armored spacesuits. I suspect Smith made them motor-driven later because the armor was becoming so thick and heavy no human could move it. XD If we are ever out there exploring the galaxy, I bet that we will be wearing armored space suits rather than anything the characters in Star Trek wore- asides from, well, the harsh environment of space, once doesn't necessarily want to expose yourself to whatever might be floating about in an alien atmosphere.

They did exactly 'coin' it per se(bad wording on my part), but they just bluntly named it "power armor" So I always think of that when it comes to the name.
I do somewhat consider "power armor" to be reserved for heavier armors, but a powered suit would generally be a bit bulkier that most normal suits; really anything that enhances your capabilities I suppose.
