Okay, I'm not completely sure I'll finish this challenge; I'm pretty busy with the coming holidays and deadlines before then but I'm gonna give it a shot.

Okay, so I am going to do a scifi christmas on the battlefield. This is as humorous as it is showing more of the human spirit. I am basing my illustration off of WW1 history.

In this update I am just concepting out ideas for soldier field uniforms. I have some that are more conventional with a bit of futurism and then another that is all sci-fi plate armor and stuff. Personally I think I like the leaner conventionalism of the middle one. So, I think I'm gonna go with that so far. When I get more of a final concept i'll start on the actual painting.

loosk great! i also like the middle one. perhaps add the shoulders of the first though?

Tovette

Yeah I think I may add some kind of shoulder padding. But what I want to concentrate mostly is the pants. They are sorta boring. Right now they just look like jeans. But color and camo pattern can fix that also too...

perhaps some thigh armor?

yeah. Perhaps some knee pads too. All my good reference books are at home so i'm I can't really get into the nitty gritty till I get home when it comes to the details.

Whoa. I want job like yours. Can you really do your stuff and it doesnt matter? Nice!

Anyway. I like the simplycity of the middle one. Colors will sure take away the "boring" aspect of the pants.

Well I work at a game company and I'm a production artist. So, people walking by seeing me drawing is normal. :flippy:

Okay another update.

I took the middle one and tweaked it some more to refine the idea down. I think I'm going to flip the gun on the forearm so the grip points in the opposite direction so he can grab it overhand instead of under handed.

These are some sweet designs. You should reaaly try modelling them some time. I think the hardest part is just coming up with something cool.

thanks everybody. I am in serious doubt whether this will be completed. I'm too busy and my computer at home has just been formatted and I haven't installed a lot of my apps back on yet (this will be an ordeal) so I don't know if this will see an end. I may move it to a normal WIP but as for this challenge i don't think it'll happen.
