NI Desktop / Reina Armor Study by Tekka-Croe NI Desktop / Reina Armor Study by Tekka-Croe
Hit the "Download" button for the nice crisp .png file.

This started out as a study trying to hammer out exactly what the back of My OC, Reina Cloude's, armor ought to look like. When the digital lines turned out so well, I thought it would make a good desktop background.

Something about the way this is composed makes me think of Ghost in the Shell, but I'm not sure why. EDIT: Okay, by "composition" I do not mean the design of the armor. I simply mean the presentation of the image. For those of you talking about the actual design, I'll save you the trouble. In addition to my own design sensibilities, this armor draws inspiration from: Halo, Mass Effect, Metal Gear Solid 4, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and Appleseed.

On the previous desktop I'd posted a few weeks back, several people wanted a version of it with the Novus Imperium logo fully visible. Obviously, I took that advice with this image, and the suggested version of the other desktop is available here: [link] for all who wanted it.

Your work is AMAZING! I'm working on a sci fi story as well and am struggling to get the moment to get the sci fi armor correct. You seem to have a very solid style. What program Do you use to color? I,as well as my siblings would love to read your story and will definitely watch you!

KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK! ;) (Wink)

Solid armor design.  Thank you for making it practical, also.   And for not falling into the Space-Marine trap of super-bulky armor.  

This looks like something a soldier could actually wear and still be mobile and dynamic on the battlefield.

love how the armor is put together like muscle and those forearms are amazing (I have an odd liking in the design).

Man, every time I see your Novus concepts I feel so inspired that I get all jittery.
Makes me wish I would make the effort to imagine again.

Keep doing what you're doing, it's awesome.

Slick, yet rigid.
It doesn't remind me of anything for some reason.

In my humble opinion, Is not "Ghost in the shell" but "AppleSeed" (from the same creator: Shirow Masamune ) the one that you probably think about. The female appleseed's character ( Deunan ) used to have a knife placed just like that and used to have some kind of armor like that as well. Your work..LOVE IT !!!

I haven't seen the Appleseed anime, but I have read the original manga many, many times. It's been a pretty huge influence on my mecha design.

Awesome!
Personally, I think it looks like you combined Gantz, Ghost in the Shell, and a little bit of Mass Effect.
I also enjoy how from the back you can't really tell if they're male or female. Nice job!

Is it just me or is there a slight post-processing effect on there?

You mean the slight darkening around the edges of the figure? Not quite post-processing. I actually duplicated the lines layer, and blurred the duplicate layer. It gives a sort of "bleed" effect to the lines.

I really can't put into words all that well what I think I'm seeing... it's like there's a slight bloom effect on the image?

Tekka-Croe Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I think we're thinking of the same thing. The way I did the lineart gives it a sort of soft, "bloom" look.

Your OC is amazing. The tech and details are better than I've seen in a long time. The character herself has such a cool and fascinating look about her. Hope to see a whole lot more of her. Whether it be doing epic things like fighting, or just everyday stuff like eating, exercise, self maintenance/cleaning, reading a book or really anything at all, its sure to look awesome.

Glad to see you redid the previous desktop. Awesome!
On another note: I think this armor reminds me more of Appleseed: ex-machina, but in the end GIT and Appleseed are both signed by Masamune Shirow.
