Powersuit  Primary Weapon Dev by Spex84 Powersuit  Primary Weapon Dev by Spex84
I don't mean to spam my DA account with every little iteration I do, but it's been a while since I touched this concept and I want to get it to the point where I can do some more finished work.
This powersuit is still intended to look awkward, heavy, and monolithic, with a somewhat grotesque or strange quality (hence the lance-like weapons and other lumpy aggregates of parts).
I'm leaning toward top middle or anything in the bottom row.
Suggestions and comments are totally welcome, but I might make some purposefully strange design decisions just to make sure the final product looks odd enough ;D

coolio! =)
you know what is missing?! a little red russian star emblem XD

the heavy amount of armor plates reminds me of russian military armor logic =P hehe

PS: omg.....i read about the nipples..

I've been heeeavily inspired by russian military equipment. Like the BAT-M truck/bulldozer. Good god that thing is a monster :D
Glad it's coming through in the sketches!

BAT-M .....omg what a bulky heavy old mother!....
im in love with the t-72 packed with additional armor plates =D
its height and proportions are magnificent!

Dude, KV-series tanks. The ultimate in ridiculous heavy-armor proportions.

it should have a flamethrower. it would fit the dark, industrial, sinister look. also i think that the legs should be digitigrade in construction, like a horses.

Excellent idea, I've been trying to work flamethrowers into a design for ages now...not sure why I didn't do it for this one!
A flamethrower would work well story-wise, too....good for cleaning up the carpets of dangerous alien mold that cover everything on the lowlands.

i like the chest area. looks very skullish. great design

Thanks for the feedback, folks.
I've decided to go with the bottom middle and bottom right as the two final-ish variations. The other ones have a variety of aspects that just don't feel right, look too stubby, etc. I guess we're on the same page..

...Moobs. Excellent, that's just the kind of oddness I want..._except_ that those holes are meant to look more like eye-holes, rather than being in the chest. This guy's chest, head, and shoulders are all compressed together,kind of like a crab's face I suppose. The "moobs" and eye-holes (or nipples?) were actually inspired by the bulk of a panda's forehead and the sad expression caused by their eye-patch patterns. If too many people read that mass as the chest (and decide that this thing is headless) I might have to change the design. Perhaps it would help to put glowing "eyes" in those holes? I kind of want to avoid putting too many "shoot me" lights on this thing :P, keep it chitinous and dark instead.

Yeah, I'm not sure if I'd put a glow on it - the dark look is really cool/working here. Maybe if you just make the curve of it a little less round?

Hope I didn't come across as rude up there by the way! I'm always a bit worried about that.
