On The Ground: The Seven Years by ukitakumuki On The Ground: The Seven Years by ukitakumuki
4 hours PS CS airbrush tool, no ref

*Really inspired by DMZ by Brian Wood and Riccardo Burchielli.. its a release by Vertigo, and i really hope for a follow up :( the ending is such a tease.

On multiple fronts, more than 52 recognised mercantile groups are wildly engaged in territorial combat, from the ground, Kevin Wong of KNN news!"

You need to do another of this suit. This is awesome!

I like the shield that the gun has. I'm wondering why the legs arnt armored though.

For mobility. :) I think oftentimes combatants would armour/dress themselves from a 'probability of hit' standpoint. You want a good balance between protection and mobility. If you swing too much towards either, you end up in a limited role. That's why armoured vests and helmets are standard fare- because they are shown to protect the most vital parts crucial to functioning. Everything else is secondary, and deployed in a case to case basis. (i.e if I'm going to march through the jungles of Vietnam in extreme humidity, I might leave even my helmet off if it causes me to be less effective in combat)

Its not that its a problem with mobility. Its arm and leg joints.

If you fall over backwards, whats your first instinct? Catch yourself on your elbows. This will hurt. This will hurt even more with 100 pounds of gear landing on your elbows over broken (read dangerous) terrain.

Then, the kneecaps. If your gonna take a leg down for kneeling and shooting, its nice to have a kneecap guard to be a barrier between you and the broken cement. More places to lean down. That, and its hard to run when you have a bullet in your kneecap and your carrying 100 pounds worth of gear, gun not included.

And as for armor, hell, thin strips, like over sized shin guards, wouldn't hurt mobility. By that year, making something bullet/shrapnel-resistant at least in something the size of segmented wrap around armor would be available.

Just food for thought. Love the pic though.
