Most of my free time this week has been spent working on concept sketches for body armor in Novus Imperium
(an original sci-fi universe created by several friends and myself). This one is an initial concept for the armor worn by Saldean freelancer "Timberwolfe" who, with some help from a friend, now has an actual name: Trent Khain Valimund.
Unlike his shorter counterpart, Reina, the design for Trent's armor fell into place quite naturally. The biggest challenge was trying to make his armor look sleek and high-tech, but not like official military-issue gear. He's a freelancer, a mercenary, and I think I've managed to convey that by using slightly different aesthetics for the various components of his armor, so it appears to be cobbled together from two or three sources.
No technical specs on the armor's composition, yet. Those will show up when I've got a full-blown reference sheet for Trent's armor.
