Duddle 46.

Really rough "wouldn't it be cool if...?" and colour muckabout. For some reason I was thinking about special armoured suits that allowed soldiers to bury themselves and then pop up behind the enemy. I usually have a real hate-on for lights on armour, but I thought it might be a valid safety thing in this case (something about getting buried only to discover the popping up part didn't work XD), and given that the whole idea is pretty daft anyway it was the least of my concerns.

Not terribly happy with it, but at least the idea is committed somewhere and I can dig it up again at a later date.

Edit: Right, I think that looks a bit better... X3

hmm pretty badass looking ^_^ reminds me of the Crysis armour <3 ,i like your weapons quite alot aswell ,i have to say that i don't like lights being on armour either because to me it means that you can be spotted easier=Bad,and ruins the idea of being stealth

Have you played red alert 3? They have a unit for one of the factions called a tankbuster. They can bury themselves in the ground to avoid being crushed by enemy vehicles. Not quite as cool as your suits in this pic though.

Looks like the kinda thing you might see attempted for Cortex Command.

i think lights on armours really give em that futuristic feel (or purely cyberpunkishly futuristic) (i dunno maybe the cliche of having bright lights on armor is already ingrained on me in some way).

the red-orangish lighting on your armour really reminds me of the light trails in Akira's opening bike scenes

I think its a very clever idea. All of it. I agree about the light thing, but like you said, what if you got stuck underground. Mannnnn, would that suck or what?


I think my favourite part of this piece HAS to be the glowy red light from the armour. Not gonna lie, as much as armour shouldn't have light, it's hella cool.

ok. so. i am totally critical of suites that light up as well (if that is what you meant on your comment) but i actually think you totally pulled it off.
the idea is very unique and creative.
i would like to know more about how it works you know?
by the by, the light has a great glow and the splash of earth and water is totally sweet.
