Vanity by Shimmering-Sword Vanity by Shimmering-Sword
Started as a helmet study then extended down to the limit of my photo reference. I was doing another test to see if my Elemental suit proportions fit a real person and this time I used a photo to paint around rather than a sketch of my own.
Turns out a skinny model will make my suit too thin for my tastes, so I don't have to worry about the "can if fit a girl inside" question any more.

So, you can doo eet cosplayers :)

It's a semi rigid material, think soft armor but at that thickness and durability it's not floppy.

excellent as always,the anatomy of the form you constructed is just,well frankly,sexy.plus her pose makes her so cute.kinda like your girlfriend posing for you.and the atmosphere of your artwork somewhat has a glint of H.R. Giger.as for the body structure,people simply have different bodies which are tailored for whatever it is that they want to do.so i will not be surprised if the Elementals require their initiates to possess this physique.
it benefits them and the fans(me included).glory to sexy femme fatales.

Try searching Wikipedia. Type MU Online. It's a Korean MMORPG. Quite popular here in the Philippines. Mabuhay Pilipinas, mabuhay MU Online :D

Weird to see the eyes without that baleful orange glow. Or the rings on the back lit blue, for that matter.

Regardless, great work and it's cool to have another perspective on all this.

I always liked semi-organic armor designs, I see future armors going more in that direction of design than the bulky behemoths that are so commonly seen in science fiction and science fantasy.

In modern combat the focus has been on lighter systems and equipment, plus there are some systems and mechanisms that exist in nature but can't be replicated with conventional mechanical designs.

Form fitting can be an issue sometimes, like when Shinji had to wear Asuka's spare plugsuit in NGE.

Oh this is lovely, I am endlessly amused by the butt. However on a serious note, this image actually explains quite a bit about the armor structure. You should probably take this to the next level, and do a muscle suit/armor study. I think it would be fitting at least, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd like to see how it all comes together.

nice picture, shades of master chief. Criticism: tiny head, looks like that armour'd have to be painted on other than legs/chestplate.

It's built over a reference, thick armor everywhere but the forearms and hands.

TasteFlavored Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
yeah i gathered all that, looks like you didn't add space for mass of armour tho, thus tiny head, ect.

:iconshimmering-sword:
Shimmering-Sword Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Isn't thickness representative of mass in this case? The helm looking small is an illusion of the design, tip of the users chin is in the neck armor, just a little.
