Wow, The detail and the over all design of it is really awesome.
Also I have a question, I'm able to draw very well; However I struggle like hell coming up with scifi concepts like this.
If you or anybody here could give me some tip or pointers (like reference images or artist I should look to) it would be much appreciated.
I agree, by the way it's a hell of an artwork. Love the details
Do the slots in the shoulder clamp into a harness or something, forgoing a traditional belt?
The bottle on the front between the metallic rib-cage assembly, is that a fire-bottle or o2 or what?
I really love how you let the design do the talking, letting everything merge. In future, you might want to think about which stages you put the different layers on or take this thing off in. Might give you some new ideas as to what goes where.
Sorry to ramble :3
