Justin's Armor Concept Sketch by Gneiss-chert Justin's Armor Concept Sketch by Gneiss-chert
Concept Sketch for Justin's war time armor set.  I wanted to test it out before I finalized it see what you all think.
I had his helmet done years ago but as I spent time thinking about it the rest came together!
Justin's Helmet Sketch by Gneiss-chert 

I went with the bird of Arisdale theme which is seen on several pictures.  One day I will have that emblem up.  The birds of Arisdale are yellow with two long red tail feathers and has been the symbol for the Arisdale Royal line for many thousands of years.

Green and gold color to fit Justin's earth elemental power which is represented by the color green.

For those of you who celebrate Easter, I wish you all a happy holiday weekend!

The armor looks awesome, your getting better and better. :) The armor looks very strong and it must be intimidating to enemies by the look of it :)

Raptor La Icon Thanks! Armor design is so hard! XD I got the idea for the breastplate then made the rest to fit around that.  I may add some decoration to it in the digital.
Oh yes very much so.

The green is VERY striking, it would be quite intimidating to see a 7 foot raptor King with that on charge at you! And with Earth powers to throw salt on the wound!

Great job!! :iconmigueleyebrowsplz:

Yes it would be!!! I will have to do a picture of that! XD

The green looks great and if it symbolizes his power then the enemy knows to fear him! How often does war or battle come about for Arisdale? They are among the more powerful kingdoms correct? ohh... Spoiler alert correct? :iconsherlockwinkplz:

That would be quite awesome to see. So go at it! :iconshaplz:

:icongneiss-chert:
Gneiss-chert Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Awesome!
Yes your right an elemental magic is rare so people fear them to begin with!

=3 That would be correct, spoilers!
But yes Arisdale has been a superpower for thousands of years.  In that time only one battle occurred and that was a hundreds of years before the book starts.

=3 I shall!
I also have an awesome cover idea for book three in my head! I'm dying to draw it!

I guess it is good then in some ways that you have a dusty armory. :) No wars, no need for arms so much. (So much... :iconwinkwinkplz:)

Then go ahead! Nothing is stopping you from making a great cover!! :iconyeahplz:

Justin looks pretty cool in his gear! :) 
The yellow and green help keep his earthy color tone scheme but grabs attention to the eye more! 
The design by his knee is probably my favorite part aside from the bird above it! This will look great with all of your textures added! :la:
The armor does make his tail look difficult to move though. Maybe it is light and I just don't know it! xD 
I am not really one for armor most of the time, but it does look nice - I think you've won me over this time! :la:

Lite...maybe....There are somethings you can't know about this armor until you read the book!

OH! YAY glad I won you over!!! :la:

That looks really nice!  Though if going for all protectected body, I think feet and hands too should have sme armor covering them...  for protection ^^"  Already it does have a nice very regal look on it as well over all ^^

Ah yea but the way Justin fights hand and foot cover would be a too much of a hindrance.  He is a fist and claw fighter and likes to use acrobatics in combat.  He will use a sword at times but not often.

RazenHashikado Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2014  Student Digital Artist
well I see it this way that the feet and hands could be armored, with armored claw tips even that can do extra damage in combat ^^I just think it might be possible that way, armor designing is quite fun in the end :)

Yes it is fun! It took me some time but once I got the idea for the chest part the rest came easy!
