First of all, hello everyone,
i'm sorry if my english will maybe make your eyes bleed sometime
Those are fantasy medieval armor concepts i'm working on atm.
in the first one, it's the armor of the leader of the "white Lion's Legion" it's an heavy armor made for negociation / trade and must be heavily blinded / protecting to prevent assassinations.
The 2nd one is a mix of different armor parts coming from nordic and viking influenza, also has an arabic power / force belt, leather bands under the shoulder parts coming from segmentata loricae of a romanian general.
(i don't know how to post a picture next to the title of the post, sorry... )

okay, this is the main char of the story i'm working on (adult, around 21 / 22 year old ) he is a bit transgenic, because he is born from two curses that united in it's body, because his nordic father had weretiger curse dormant in his blood, and her mother, byakko demon sealed into her linneage, the "union" of those two curses in leo's body made him a little bit different from a human.
(if you think he has large arms, thin chest, and round / big shoulders as well as a slightly longer neck, it's normal, it's part of the "mitigation" or hybridation of genes i wanted to put into the character, also, his bones are thick, especially in the arms, because two natural blades as long as his humerus are hidden in cavity / holes in his humerus, and cubitus + radius has also "holes" where the blades can "slide" ONLY when he has cubitus+radius in perfect line with his humerus to make the bones blades slide through it's arms, anyway, it's something he will discover very very late in the comic, the blades will allways be there but, it's on a special occasion that he will disover they exists (while he gets his arms broken by a powerfull mythologic being )
anyway, here it is :

thank you very much ! i'm gratefull it doesn't look too much inhuman, i'm fighting hard sometime to keep right proportions i've made "up" in my mind for him.
Another pic, half inspired from a "manga" i love, but i changed most of the design / look and equipment of the character to fit into a more fantasy world, anyway, it's still leo Tigerheart, but he is wearing a large mechanical sword, with an engine in the gard, the handle is used as an accellerator for the engine, it makes the blade vibrate go forth and back on it's long side, acting almost as a... chainsaw ? when he puts the blade on an opponent, he accellerates with the handle and the blade cut, go forth / and back, and go through plate / flesh / bones, i think it can be called steampunk for the mechanical part but i'm not really sure, it may stay in fantasy category ?

this, this is actually a "comic"/manga page from something i'm personnaly working on (the character, leo, is still very young in this one) i'm sorry if it may loose a lot of visual information, i hade to save it in png8 64 colors to fit the file size and i'm bad with english expressions so everything must not turn as well as it should be if i knew the right way to express what i want to mean in eng )

this is the page before the other one, Leo tigerheart was "chased" by a... well... an "eye" on spider legs made out of his optical nerve, i'll post the page before this one too for better understandability... sorry this one being in french hasn't had the time to translate for now.

in this one, the weretiger/byakko demon in his mind throw'd his eye to the main character, just playing with it's "prey" and turning his dream into a nightmare.
there is some influences from H.G.giger into the "decorations" of the weretiger bones, his eye / familliar is... well... called glorbite because, you know... orbit / globe... glorbit... i haven't searched very far but i think it works huh ? XD

I don't know if you've seen the show but the main character looks like Lion-O, the leader of the ThunderCats. Nice work.

previous page, again.
yeah but the story will be much much darker than thundercats of course and placed into a medieval / dark fantasy world, the main char is cursed with the byakko demon and weretiger curse that make him "transgenic" when he was born, the story begin at the end of antiquity era and the early days of medieval age. this part is just a dream that turns slightly/gradually into a nightmare
My true inspirations for this character are :
Rei (breath of fire III)
And kimba (the anime / manga disney ripped off with lion king.)
