Alma Armor Components by jack07 Alma Armor Components by jack07
This took hours literally....7 or 8 at least to get all this work done. Now I know this is nothing too fancy, just a basic thing to show how Alma's armor all comes together. Originally I was going to show even more detail, close ups and cut aways but I got sick of making so much stuff XD

But here we go....This is all you need to live through your average day as a space for guns and a ship, I will get to that soon enough.

Dude this is the coolest thing ever! I LOVE your deep analysis and breakdown of the levels and layers of armor! Your work always has such intense detail, and I often wondered how you could possibly think this stuff up, but seeing it in layers with the descrips makes it understandable, digestible, and just really awesome. This is what I love to see though, description of the armor, not just fancy "look what I can do." Its really the concept that drives the work, and makes the difference between really knowing your world and character, and just being able to draw "cool things."

I also love how well the armor really compliments her silhouette and general character design. She's such a big, hefty, bulky character, but what I love is that the bulk isn't just in the armor. In fact, take the same layers of armor, slap it on a skinny character, and they'd look rather sleek and trim. (You should try that, it'd be cool to see how it affects the character silhouette of, say, Emile) But every bit compliments her well, like the hip armor that accentuates her pear shape, and the bright orange between the thighs is a great touch, actually, as it adds a sort of optical illusion effect, the light balancing out the dark colors, to almost make her look thinner! If you look at it from afar, it's easier to see what I mean. But I love that, because it breaks up the space of that whole midsection area of her design. Without that nice orange open space, it'd seem overly cluttered.

So, yeah. man. Nice choice of accouterments, to say the least!
What do you think?

Daaaaaang, this is awesome!
I can't believe how intricate it all is, very impressive work! That's some heavy-duty armor alright. Alma is not a force to be reckoned with.
I like the tiny goggles added in the last one. Just the right finishing touch. XD

:D why thank yah
Yeah this is how I spend my free time, thinking about stuff like this...
and nope, when she does a job she is gonna do it...and probably make a mess...just going to have to bust her when she is in her civilian clothes or get some kind of fancy trap :O
XD I decided to add them back...she went without her goggles for a bit but heck, goggles are just so cool looking :3

XD well the thumbnail is not very impressive I admit, so I can see how it would go under the radar
And thank you! I just...gah I dunno I always have so much fun when drawing I just spent so much time and had a good bit of fun with this carried away with the detail

The time it took you to draw this is probably the same amount of time it takes someone to put the armour on!

Pray that you don't get an itch or that nature doesn't call.

XD hopefully for her sake it does not take that long...I mean what if there are baddies about?!
practically it could take half an hour/an hour to get it on. And yeah...pee before getting suited up

Wow, what attention to detail. Left no stone unturned I see. Pretty cool stuff, I wish I were that detailed. =P
jack07 Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2011
I totally got carried away with the detail...and trust me, if you had stuff this detailed it would be impossible to animate....not fun when it takes 8 hours to draw this stuff

jack07 Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2011
