Now for my work (Which compared to my friends is pretty bad)

I'll upload the shaded images when Crush has coloured these in.

For Crush: I would like the pieces to be different shades of green and brown. As for the shield, incase it is not obvious, the sheild is bent (so when someone wants to slice them, the sword just slides away). The shield is bent with the middle of it being moved forward and the sides moving away, so if you could Crush, then please make the coloured shading fit the shield.

P.S. This armor is made for absolute defence, so this is also why I made the plate armor the way it is. The plate is extremly thick on the front and back, so I made it accordingly. If this doesn't make sense, sorry.

Hehe, the helmet reminds me of Zebraman, Japanese 'superhero'. :)

Don't know what that is, but I'm gonna find out.

EDIT: Ok, I googled it and all these really freaky things came out, so no, I can't find out. But is that a good thing or a bad thing?

It's a parodic movie by the director of Ichi the Killer. It's funny. So it's neither good nor bad for your helmet.

Well..OK...
:?

Anyway I got a new wep and the shaded versions of the things I drew earlier.

New wep (shaded and unshaded, for Crush, of course)

Again Crush, don't use too many bright colours, but one or two won't hurt.


And the shaded versions of the earlier sketches ('Cos I wanted to)

And about the weapon, it is VERY HEAVY. (Just saying that because it looks better if people know it is heavy :D )

So leave a comment!

The dragon armor thingy should go into production (as in pixellation and animation), I just simply like it.

I also like the tribal/camoflage patterns on the equipment. Would it be too much to ask some pixel artist to quickly experiment on how those would look when implemented?

Oh yea... I like that. It doesn't look that heavy though, and I think it shouldn't be. I really like it the way it is.

Thanks to Crush for colouring the shield.

Modanung, thanks for the compliment.

'I just simply like it' Well put. :lol:

As for the designs on the armor, do you want me to use them for all the jungle things I do?

It also looks like something that would be easy and accurate to throw.

And yeah, I like that general design of those patterns, but do they remind people too much of already existing tribal patterns..? (I'm asking for opinions.)

No, I don't think it is. First of all, it's simply too heavy. Second a throwing knife's handle shouldn't be wedge shaped, the bottom should be just as wide as the rest. And leather wrapping (I suppose it is leather) is too grippy. Also a throwing knife should be pretty flat.
It does look kinda balanced though. :)

Oh and Crush, real nice colouring job.

it looks like a tribal (guild?) dagger to me... not sword... maybe because of its pin point...
