Medieval Sci-fi Characters by Phill-Art Medieval Sci-fi Characters by Phill-Art
Here's a couple characters in my sci-fi/medieval look. I was looking at some gothic architecture for the female's armor and for the male, I wanted him to have a castle-like appearance. I attempted to balance the sci-fi and medieval style a bit more evenly, but I'm happy how they came out.

I like how you avoided the typical "boob-armour" and made made the cuirass slope outwards for both genders.

But I lose points in realism when it comes to her stomach X )

People seemed to really come out of the wood work and gripe about that... I was trying to hold back the skin exposure too. I think my admiration for stomachs should be left by the wayside next time T_T

If you want to draw anything practical, yes. While the field of art can forgive many things, body armour is supposed to be functional, not a fashion statement.

"Let's make armour that exposes your vital organs!"

Yeeeah...

I agree, but I think armor can have realistic function as well as interesting design and sex appeal.

Absolutely, but you have to balance that carefully.

Well i've seen worse female armour on dev. I find my self not wanting to mention the belly hole because she at least has her femoral arteries and heart covered. I'd like to see people use women like Samantha Wright as a reference more though for body shape. The man is a tank lol but one thing at a time i guess. his legs seem kinda short or his torso is too long. i can't quite tell. Anywho it looks awesome. i love the design and in some respects the female Armour almost seems to be more protective in parts.

I think people are noticing the body types more because I have a hulking man next to a petite female figure. If the female figure was by herself, I don't think anyone would bother to say something. That being said, I don't have anything against a more bulky female figure. I find it more fun to do an agile body type character and just because she's thin, doesn't mean she isn't strong. The winter olympics makes me think of how small the female skaters are, yet prove to have incredible strength. 

Considering what you said, I also did some tweaking to the male's anatomy.

...I always assumed that placing female characters in comparatively petite and obviously compromising armor was something the artists at Blizzard felt pressured to do.  But you're telling us that you feel compelled to work this into your work outside of your work and franchises?

I decided to make nimble functioning armor for the female character because I found it more enjoyable and fun to do. Her stomach exposed is an obvious sexualized based design, but what can I say, I'm a tummy guy. : D Want to fight about it? QQo_<

And of course the male characters is depicted as being somewhere between a brickhouse and a tank while the female is small and bird like with an outfit that's a step shy of crossing the border into sexualization. LOL

Still an awesomely done picture. ;D

And those sex based designs are just more fun to do.

These sex specific designs are what we usually see in the industry, I wanted to apply my own ideas to something familiar.

He certainly looks like a castle, but he also looks a little top heavy.

If his legs were a little longer, or if his head was nestled down further between rather than above the shoulders it would look more balanced.

Otherwise they look cool

I was going for stylized anatomy, but if it's coming across as bad anatomy, then it needs to be fixed. How's it look now?
