Space Vagabonds: Assaulter by ukitakumuki Space Vagabonds: Assaulter by ukitakumuki
Done for Space Vagabonds [ [link] ] Gregor Theado 2009

Once in a while you get those crazy passionate clients that actually have vision and know what they want. Gregor is certainly one of them and it was a blast doing these characters and mechanicals for his RPG universe.

This would be the Assault Officer from the Colonial Defence Squadron. They are basically zero G trained rapid response/SWAT teams.

The inspiration for this one was a bomb disposal suit, but something that was less bulky, trimmed down to allow ease of movement and augmented with exoskeleton frame to enhance agility and power all round. I kept the helmet almost of a different style to emphasise the fact that these guys are allowed to don personal customised gear (partly due to shitty budgets for their unit). The helmet was probably specially ordered in from a zero-atmosphere combat exosuit or something, just to give him even more protection and special optics.

He has a cut-down slug gun for door...well more like wall breaching. The one other feature I am quite happy with is putting a field-command computer station on his back. I think it evokes the imagery of a soldier with a communications pack on his back. The idea I had was that since the entire team was comprised of only 4 members, they would need to double up on roles and duties. In this case, because of the crazy amount of armour, strength and survivability the Assaulter was packing, it made perfect sense for him to be the comms guy that the commander would always stick with (more like hide behind!) and as well as being the 'mule' of the team that carries all the heavy weapons to the fight... plus drag their asses out of the fire when need be.

These are really amazing. I was wondering, do you have any pictures of those rifles? I notice you have a few designs for futuristic weapons, which I assume are featured in a game. What about those LMGs? I'm working on a serial novel that is set in the not-too-distant future and involves combat marines, a la HALO and Starship Troopers. I was wondering if I could post a pic of yours at a chapter heading to offer some visual inspiration to the story.

If I had this suit, I'd be a dork and go be a forklift for someplace stupid like Sam's Club or Walmart, LOL! Just load up some fork tongs on my arms and lemme' at 'em! Just so everyone who saw me would be like, "Dude, .....wtf?"

love this your art is really amazing, one question I have is the helmet has a stealth variant, not to be captain obvious but this bad-ass doesn't seem to have any subtlety about him. I fear I may be being thick but an answer would be appreciated. but overall love the design, its made even better by the functional design of everything. and may I ask what programs you used for this

Hi! Thanks!I used Photoshop CS2 for this, and a Wacom tablet.

As for the design, you're right in the sense that size really does give him away, but the fact he is cladded in soft fabric armour helps to nullify the sound signature of him clanking around somewhat-- helps him set up savage assaults in close quarters-- and his low-visibility colours help with that as well. So, its more of a "I simply can't help that I'm Big, but I'm still going to do everything I can to blend into my environment" theory. Every little bit helps for a tactical team.

Also, the idea for the stealth helmet was a lower profile visor that wouldnt catch as much light and has a low-visibility coating that diffuses light. Perhaps even helps diffract radar or sensors too to help mask his electro magnetic presence whatwith all the tech he is loaded up with! Hope that helps!
