Wow am I loving this! The armor design is just spectacular. I love the horns incorporated into the helmet. The fully concealed face is a nice touch to.... I admit that I am a bit partial towards 17th century knight suits but still this is just kickass . The dark aura around the armor is cool too. Although this artwork does not have much background it is still one of my favourites. Kinda like an old world Iron Man stealth suit. I absolutely love it..
Please continue reeling off amazing artworks like these for us to see...
Absolutely fantastic job Moonchild!

Another super piece! Great colour palette - love the highlights in the red/purple hues. Design of the suit brings to mind all sorts influences (in a good way - gets you thinking about where the story will sit) with the horns reminiscent of Japanese armour and the full face plate reminding me of Predator! ;-)

The low-rez bush work - is cool... Got me thinking of the John Harris...

Cool piece - well done! :-)

I love the brushwork on this, David. It's deceptively simple, but still precise, suggesting light and shade and letting the eye do the rest. I hate to use comparisons, but the style you're using here (and I know you use different styles for different pieces) is Frank Frazetta - and I can't give higher praise than that!

Another great piece, dude! ;)

and you couldn't please me more with that comparison!
I LOVE the work of Frazetta,he is one of my masters, so no higher praise indeed!
my work is always compared to new franchises when I only love "old school" masters.

also,it's something that I like to do ,those simple but effective brushwork

thanks a lot!

I had a try at working in that style, but I can't carry it off. The closest I got was my "Deathstalker Tribute" and that didn't come out the way I hoped.

We plainly both have the same idols! Keep up the great work, David. You're welcome!

Awesome job man. It has a really classic yet sophisticated look to it. Reminds me of the Judges from FFXII. EPIC!

all right I get it ,someone told me about that alre,thing is I don't know who the judges are...
it seems that no matter what I do as an original work, there's someone telling me that my art looks like this movie/game/book...I don't know what to think about that to be honnest...

Ancient armor- of EVIL. :D So, would only a very evil person wear this armor, or does it MAKE the user evil? Or is it itself evil even without a wearer? Ah- the mysteries. Lovely work!
Reply
:iconmoonxels:
moonxels Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
well it is evil because it gives you evil powers... like a superhuman strengh and a special vision (red) that give you a "see through" and indicates a halo around potential victims (the more "innocent" and "good" the victim is ,the more reddish the halo would be)
also if you wear it,it will be part of the wearer body for ever

Nice! The crimson patina and highlights gives it an unsettling quality that suits it well.

I would ask how he sees out of that helmet, but I think that contributes to the eerieness of it. ;)

if someones wants to ever wear this armor ,he must knows that it will be a part of the body for ever, then you are suposed to see through the helmet and the vision should look like looking through some ruby crystal....
