    As a daughter of Minister of Martian Affairs Marcus Thompson, Sam has always had easy access to experimental military tech. Developed by former lightbulbs, kitchen-gear and televisions producing company Philips's experimental Philips Nano division, Sam's suit is a prime example of some skilled engineering.
    Her suit fits like normal racing outfit, only slightly thicker than normal cloth. It hardens on kinetic impact (like Batman's cape does while being electrified) which protects her from harm while keeping her extremely mobile and able to dodge most attacks with ease.
    It's still vulnerable to cutting or stabbing weaponry (that's why the army uses a thicker but less mobile variant of the suit) but Jousts have had their points dulled since the incident of 2681...

    Tuner people, not Turner.

    Looking good guys and gals, very good.

    So, time for an update. Started refining and putting in some details, then got
    carried away with that faux collectible card idea which i totally had to
    implement now instead of working on the character. *facepalm*
    Well, at least I've got that out of the way now and can concentrate on the
    important things.

    I'm finding this chow to be a real challenge. I usually don't do future...or sporting concepts very often. And right now I have a bunch of ideas but I'm having trouble focusing them into one design. Ah well. back to drawing.
    Jason Snair:thanks, with your ideas its just best to flesh them all out and find which one you like the the best. sometimes a small sketch can lead to or influence an idea more than your first initial concept will. believe me everything justs kind of melds together after that. you'll notice shapes and elements that you like and you stick with those.hope that helps.

    though i'm still undecided with mine as well. i'll continue to work on both and decide on one in the end.right now its morning in okinawa and i got to get some food in my bellytill
    next post keep crank n

    Okay, so I think I've landed an idea.

    I started thinking today about the Il Palio horse races in Siena, Italy and how the before-hand there are these elaborate parades showcasing real Renaissance style armor. That got me thinking.

    What if in the 2700's they do the same thing with us. They put on these elaborate jousting competitions to mimic the real space race that went on when man first left the confines of Earth. Each side dons, old-tech inspired suits, similar to the genesis NASA suits and Cosmonaut ones.

    I hope that doesn't stray too far from the brief.

    So I'm going for an illustration that kind of represents that ideal. The suit is kind of generic right now, and isn't going to look exactly like our current day suits...but along those lines.

    So far this has been the only idea that actually liked.

    Norsehound - Lower his shield a bit so we see more of his arm and adjust the pack to the left, right now it looks off center.

    ArtofInca - I like the first one, it's a hoverbike but also mosquito-like.

    Pixeltuner -Just personal preference, but I'd like if the bikes had some more lineweight, to help distinguish depth, relation of seat to front, etc.

    Here's mine so far, I thought fat knight on put-put STEED. With a massive energy lance.

    It's exciting to see what everyone's ideas are so far. This is my first time participating in anything on CA.org - I'm really more of a lurker. I'm excited about the topic and am looking forward to seeing everyone's finished pieces.

    After sketching a bunch of thumbs and character studies and looking at a mindnumbing amount of reference the last two days, I put together a couple roughs/colorcomps. I still have to flesh out the details for the heraldry and come up with a better solution for the lance. Right now I'm thinking some sort of hologram coil/helix thing. Maybe the hologram shatters like glass or distorts like a wave on impact. And I'll probably play with some color shifts before I start the final.

    And you know what!? Fuck this guy! I have a new idea and am doing good with this one. But i got to thinking. This is 700 years into the future. Look how many advancements we have made since 1200's. Dont you think that by then, we would have found maybe an alien race, or created some sort of new humanoid species? So I am now working on a reptilian barbarian jouster. Tell me what you think!
    FUCK YOU YA PRETENTIOUS DICKS!! BAN ME!!

    not sure if i can finish this week cuz i'm busy but i threw some quick colors on... old wartime colors hehe. it was supposed to be a guy but it looked better as a rosie the riveter type... i'll have to think about it. (might appear dark on some ppl's screens)

    maybe something like united states inc. buy wartime bonds type image. the coat of arms in the bg is going to be a fuzzy broadcast image and the flag will double as a lance.

    Reymus: I'm also doing a 3/4 view of one of the bikes, so that'll probably help clear things up.

    Digital Blacksmith: If you want my honest opinion, it strays really far from the brief, for a few reasons. Though it's not explicitly stated, it is implied to be a human sport based on the original human sport. Also there is nothing in your current design to hint at any sort of future or even modern day technical ability.

    Making up reasons to entertain certain ideas and to add certain elements is fine, but ultimately we should be able to understand what we're looking at without having to read an explanation for it, and right now all I'm getting from your image is fantasy orc barbarian. sorry.
