Armor Concept: Final by steve-burg Armor Concept: Final by steve-burg
A concept painting done for the cancelled "Tiberium" game...

This was the final approved concept for the player character. The helmet and weapon are actually 3D elements, but the rest is entirely Photoshop painting.

The design was completed in July 2007. From there, modeling the character both for in-game and for promotional uses (at much higher detail) commenced...

I'm not really a character designer per-se - but I've designed a lot of suits, so that was my focus for this character.

I like it cause, compared to most DEviantart armor designs, its just so straightforward and simple.... 
Sigh...I wish I could draw....

That is one nice piece of armor, very tank like, yet form fitting.

You should suggest it to be a CGI animation movie, you can't just let designs sit on your hard drive and get fragmented (or collect dust, which ever term you prefer) You have to give it a fall back plan, otherwise the art of your cancelled projects will never get used! Wouldn't you want to give all of your artwork meaning? (kind of reminds me why I stopped doing CGI artwork, because of too many cancelled projects.)

Aww I wanted this game to come out so badly! Did you know Chris? He was one of the designers I think.

I will say, it's very refreshing to see a simplistic armor design like Ironman. Too many power armors are overly complicated with needless detail.

Does his weapon use a common brass projectile or some sort of energy beam?
Reply
:iconsteve-burg:
steve-burg Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2011  Professional Filmographer
It's a rail gun - so it fires conductive rounds that are propelled by electromagnetic force (hence the split rail open "barrel")

Haha sorry if my quesion seemed a bit insulting. I love this picture, i was just wondering if the weapon had some sort of power source. If it did, why wouldnt he keep spare magazines or rail energy. XD

Again you did really well on this! :)

:iconsteve-burg:
steve-burg Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2011  Professional Filmographer
Oh - I didn't interpret anything as an insult!
The weapon was powered in such a way that it would recharge after use (like regenerative health)
Memory is a bit fuzzy on this - but I think the game designers didn't want to worry about pick-ups like ammo/energy. I might be wrong though! But the weapon was supposed to be fully loaded at the start and not needing too much except time to recharge from its power supply.
