    I'm going to give this one a shot. Nothing too fancy this time, trying to keep it simple:

    Nicky... Your head is in profile, so we shouldn't be able to see both eyes, if the design of the goggles is to have a support piece cutting through the middle, then your good...

    Baranha: Lol, well hey, whatever inspires you. Yeah, I'll probably include thumbnails of the unused concepts in the final post and have them all together.

    Ironbyte: Looking good, some parts of her armor kind of look like a modern knight. Really like the perceived weight on that gun, nice.

    Nextra: Nice kicks! Maybe tone down the background a little bit, though? I feel like it might be drawing too much attention away from the character/device.

    ashess: Yeah, definitely liking the upper left diving pose. Can't wait to see this concept progress.

    Vezarez: Still looks good from where I'm sitting. No real critiques, keep it up!

    hueonpao: Lol, I love how casual this agent seems. Not quite sure what the recall device is, or is it the underlying armor? Careful with the balance as she's kind of falling over backwards, I have this same issue all the time.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone. Still trying to churn out a few more daily ideas before settling on one of these. A chainsaw that slices open the space time continuum?

    Woke up today and reworked my design, what can I say: less is more? Ha ha, feels much better now. She uses her catana to slice trough time and space!

    Nextra, I hate to be the guy that has to say these things but the sword cutting through time is not a "Device." It needs to be some sort of technological device to recall back to their time period.

    This also goes for ANYONE not making a device. I think I saw a couple trying to do some weird things outside of technology. Please, if you are unsure what qualifies as a device, please ask!

    Hey Havok, thanks for telling me! Better to find out now than last day before deadline So the device needs to be run on electricity? I'm not sure I understand?

    Aagh this is so bad.

    I wanted to mix old timey clocks and riot gear or whatever, but I totally botched my idea anyway. Fuck sakes.
    The time travel device is the wrist thingy. It has springs that you need to wind up, and you manipulate time for the duration that the spring runs.

    Nextra: Well, pretty much, yes. Only because this chow is a specific genre. The idea of the recall device to re-open the portal through which the enforcer will travel through to get back to their time period. A mechanical device wouldn't really work in this setting.

    Ashess: This one might be pretty hard to portray without doing a schematic of how this harness works. I get the idea, but you want to be able to convey the design to someone who has no idea what this character is about. Perhaps this harness is used to open the portal and the bungee remains in full tension stasis until the harness re-activates it? It will be quite difficult to go this route, but it can be done with the proper details drawn out. Basically we would need to see how the harness works, along with the character design. So it's up to you if you want to do the extra work, or you can try to make it a little easier on yourself by coming up with something a little more simple.

    Just realised we have another week until deadline! Should really be paying attention, either that or one of these time devices is a little too effective...
    Here's what I was going to post, there is always room for a reworking though if anyone can point out any major issues. (and a double check if I'm still within all the rules.)

    Thanks for the advice Noun! Love your small army of time agents, the hourglass on a chain is my favourite so far.
    Trying my best to keep the wing/rift device as open as possible, but still balance it out so my time agent isn't falling over all the time. Changed the opposite arm and am attempting to make the framework of the device look as lightweight as possible.

    Wow guys, these are all awesome and unique concepts! Mine is feeling a little cliche now.

    Not sure how I'm feeling about this but here's what I got so far. My idea was that her suit is the time travel device, solar rechargeable, with an easily accessable control on her hip. A sort of holo screen so she has all the data about targets and precise times and dates, and a weapon that works with electricity to either stun or kill. Tried for a cyber punk vibe. But yeah, more work to be done.

    (Just realized how awkward her crotch area looks... will fix!)

    OJseve: I like how you've actually put a limit on how long the agent can control time with the wind up springs. If you were to go back and continue this it'd be cool to see a bit more clockwork/gears incorporated into the glove like you were saying. Maybe the back of the glove has a huge wind up lever on it or something. Really like how you've researched police uniforms as well, that never even crossed my mind until now. Would like to see even more of that in the costume.

    RaynaCendre: Another interesting way to limit the agent's time travel usage--I like the solar powered idea. Maybe take reference from the designs of actual solar powered objects, and incorporate those into the suit's appearance to indicate this? Perhaps the suit has a rectangular motif like you'd see on solar panels.

    Daily brainstorm, but now I'm wondering if an instrument is technically a device lol. Was thinking that the agent would return home by playing a tune only they would know, which opens a time rift. Kind of like a musical password. Basically Ocarina of Time... but with an electric guitar.

    Ok, to make things simple, a device is a thing made or adapted for a particular purpose, esp. a piece of mechanical or electronic equipment. So, when Nextra wanted to use the sword as a device, I said no because it is more like a tool.

    Cool stuff, guys.

    Nextra - I like the jacket. I kind of wish you added that spiky silhouette in some way. Would've been a cool device.

    NicoleWG - It's a very retro style agent but she needs a more defined device. Is it the sun glasses?

    prepsage - Thanks for the heads up. I love the texture pattern on the coat. Very slick. Same goes for the helmet. Not sure how it works though.

    jondawo - The new approach for the arm was a good choice. Likes!

    ded - Great colors and nice simple clothing. Is the helmet the device or is she getting more gadgets?

    ashess - Bungee jumping. It's a cool idea but like Havoc says, it would need a lot of work. I think you might be biting off more than you can chew.

    NickyBeats - I like the comic book style, cyber punk look. I'm guessing he IS the device?

    Metaichmion - I don't think that light rod is going to work. Perhaps design a device that is strapped onto his upper body?

    Moirae - The problem with the weight is simply the pose itself and not how light the wing is suppose to look.

    Noun - I love your simple, flowing style. The guitar idea is cool.

    Vezarez - Nice pose. Keep up the good work.

    FatMoStank - Good idea to start over. The pose is great and I like the mask. Keep it up.

    Barhana - Loving it. Great pose, great outfit, great helmet.

    ironbite - She's got the device and a cool gun but the chest piece looks a little too medieval. Perhaps work some sci-fi details into it?

    hueonpao - There is nothing wrong with keeping it simple but yours is a little too simple and I can't see how she's suppose to be a time traveling agent.

    OJseve - Uhm he needs more work.

    RaynaCendre - I like the idea of the suit being wrapped in energy threads.


    Thanks again for the feedback. I did some minor changes to the design, changed the pose and worked more on her proportions.
    Once I fix the outer shield on the robotic arm/device I hope it's ready for the final touches. Ideas? Crits?

    Christoffer- I'm glad you got that impression, the silhouette is straight from 1940s. And yes, the shades are? is? the device. I left this alone over the weekend and came back to it. I wanted it to look more different than a regular suit so I changed some stuff.
