where is the ammo kept, in the back and belt fed like a minigun or in a box like an LMG?

The large box near the guns center is it's ammo.

What technology powers these suits? They're much more compact and realistic than the somewhat more outlandish pseudo-mech suits. (which is a good thing IMO) Your rangers and elementals make more sense to me than a lot of concepts I've seen in movies ^.^

Love your art, by the way :)

They'd run on a battery, and some more advanced ones on a mini reactor.

Hi, I really like your work and would like you to create a character for me. I have some reference images that I can email you.
Of course I would pay you a reasonable amount, and give you credit.
The character would be a futuristic samurai with off white or black stealth armor.

Hi.

I have an idea of a character.

The character is a musician from the future.

So I need a concept drawing, so that armor can be made, and also to use the images for promotional purposes.

The end goal is to have music videos and tours in the suit. Basically 1 step up from daft punk.

I have a folder of reference images that I can share.

The character has basic armor, which would be similar to the flat stealth panels on US Planes etc

I want it to be either black or slightly blue/grey white armor.

Can we skype or google hangout chat about it, so I can explain better and answer questions as well as send the reference files.

Hi,

I'm interested in commissioning you to do a sketch, then a more detailed version once sketch is refined.

Eventually the character will be made into armour to fit me.

I am 6ft and of athletic build.

I need to send you a full body picture of myself and the reference photos to help design the minimal/stealth armor.

Please let me know price for sketch, and email to send pictures too, as well as how long the first sketch will take.

Heavies are even more solid and bulky, a lot less flexible.

MEDIUM POWER ARMOR? SNUB NOSED CANNON? These are understatements my friend lol. That guy could be run over by a tank and survive it. And that cannon is longer than a sniper rifle lol. I wonder what the heavy stuff looks like.

But seriously though, awsome work, it gives me so many ideas for my own artwork. Just great!

i love the design, it's bulky, curved lines give it stage presence, at the same time that helmet (and the penetrator cannon) give it a sheer terrifying presence
