the front view you made reminds me of a protoss from starcraft but on steroids.. :D
looking cool..

Thanks Kinkypuss, now that you mention it I do see a similarity to my design and the Protoss, although that was not my intention. I was looking to design some armor that had the feel of old school armor with a technological twist. The shield is part of the bracer and will have a sort of duel plasma cannon, with a plasma dagger for close quarters. Im finishing up some freelance right now, due next week hopefully get some work rolling on this early next week. Just for input.... with a helmet or without? with boots or without? I will draw some more comps and post them soon.

Because the character is so round, I don't feel as threatened by it. I think if the whole body is going to have heavy armor, perhaps showing the character without a helmet will create a nice diversity?

Wow, I hope I still have time to finish my model, here are a few update sketches I have been working on in my free time. I redesigned the head of my character and tweaked my armor to try out a few different things before I make it in 3D. I guess now is a good time to go into some of the details for my character. The Xandai are a proud and powerful ancient race. The shadow warrior wears a power suit, the orbs on the armor are points that generate a overshield powered by the warriors fighting spirit. He wields a plasma dagger, which can be transformed into a larger plasma sword at will. The shield will also project an extra overshield from the orbs atop it, capable of deflecting any projectile or melee weapon that tries to attack a Xandai Shadow. The shield is made of the hardest composite material known to the Xandai people, with a pointed tip specially designed for piercing heavy armor. At the rear of the shield are a set of boosters which propell the shield through the thickest armor like butter. The front of the shield is armed with a set of duel plasma blaster cannons to make short work of those longer distance targets.

C&C are very welcome, Will post a model progress shot when I make it :O)

looks like it's coming along nicely, my only concern is that if the shild is covered in so much stuff, it may not deflect things very well, and those cables might get torn off if it was peircing something like butter that happened to be thicker than a foot or so, maybe there could be an outer shell with parts that open up for plasma blasting, etc...

i hope you still have time to finish your model as well
good luck

Hi ScudzAlmighty, I really didnt even think about that, good point... I will work on the shield design some more, in the meantime I am going to start modeling. :O) Work out some of the kinks as I go.
