Just had a thought about drawing this type of data sheet thing again, been a while since I made something similar. So here you go: The "Ashigaru" combat armor as presented by Hemera.
I initially drew the picture on the left to my sketchbook and thought it was neat so I made the two other ones to accompany it. The choice of name is pretty obvious, I thought of something japanese-related since the pauldrons are sort of like those used in the O-Yoroi armor, but that name was somewhat odd so I went with ashigaru.
You didn't fall into the fatalistic trap of 'boob' armor, either.
I try to avoid any such designs, they just lack any proper logic... just think of the chafing! Too uncomfortable, I'd say.
Only thing I would change given what you have stated here on your data sheet is some kind of camera on the plasma weapon. Since you have the neural awareness system, it would make sense to use it with a weapon that seems to have no kind of sights for aiming. Other than that, it seems very well thought out and has great attention to detail.
Well anyway, I suppose there's an option to attach one for the not-so-cyborg. Thanks!
It's nice to see some female sci-fi armor without gratuitous cleavage for once.
Yeah, practicality is key when drawing something like this(or at least the illusion of it).
That's one of the things I loathe in scifi- a design that is simply poor fanservice, like any armor with a "cup" for each breast. Take Mass Effect for example. The design is impractical, harder to manufacture, probably offers less protection in most cases and is most certainly uncomfortable.
As I'm fond of saying, sex appeal is not combat effective.
... anyway- that pointer was meant as a general point about the suit, but I couldn't find a better spot for the text box...
Defiantly looks heavy for her.
