    Character of the Week #431
    Deadworld lumberjack
    Deadline - Sunday, July 16th 10PM GMT


    The planet of Th’rian has long been abandoned by a mysterious race after an asteroid threatened to wipe out all life upon its surface.
    Humanity recently discovered the world and all the rich resources left behind on the lifeless planet. One surprising commodity is glasswood, a strange material garnered from the dead trees that now litter Th’rian. Due to its finite supply and the large cost of retrieving the material from the far off planet, glasswood is the new must have accessory, and the rich and the elite will pay top galactic dollar to have a cabinet of rare glasswood in their penthouse.
    Th’rian no longer has an atmosphere, so wear exo suits fitted with heavy cutting gear to harvest the glasswood.


    -Male or female human
    -Environmental suit / exosuit to boost user's strength and protect them from vacuum.

    -Logging gear attached to arms.
    - Optional - suits may also be fitted to counteract heavy gravity.


    The Rules:

    - FINALS: Must post in finals thread before the deadline
    - KNEES UP: Must show at least 3/4 of the character, from at least the knees up.
    - FRONT VIEW: Must be able to see the front of design. No back views without a front.
    - WIPS: Must show at least 2 work in progress shots with final entry.
    - READABLE: Design must be readable, as in a 3D model could be made from your image.
    - ONLY ONE: May only submit one entry. No multiple submissions.
    - 3D: Must be originally created models, excluding primitives. 3D paint-overs permitted. If you choose to use 3D in whole or in part you must show a screenshot of the model in 3D software with final entry.
    - UNACCEPTABLE: These are not permitted: Photos, photo paint-overs, photobashing, pre-made or purchased 3D
    models
    , rushed works/ rough sketches.
    - NEW USERS: Must submit entries by 6pm GMT on due date, due to conceptart.org's moderation process:

    - DESIGN: Design your character for the brief, not your personal fetish. Nudes without some design are not permitted.
    - READ: Read through the threads; there may be answers to your questions already posted.
    - FUN: Have fun!

    First sketch. The guy fits inside of the main body of the larger suit. The main goal of the suit is to prevent damage when falling (because of this I'm not sure if I like sticking with the walking upright idea. Let me know what you think!)

    Inkbookerdrawdraw: Although you are free do do whatever you want, generally machines for high gravity would be very dumpy with a low centre of gravity (long legs would buckle easily). Try looking at sci fi designs in the same vein or really deep water diving gear.

    Hmmmm...

    Moirae, I think this is delving into my territory... industrial design with robots and mechs. Here's why ; assuming a tree weights a minimum of 100kg and is about 3m tall. A human weighs average 70kg without the equipment / oxygen etc, then the multiplied gravity effect gives at least total weight of 8500kg! Or about 6 large cars. Therefore I would say at least a powerlifter from aliens could perform the task. I actually like inkbookerdrawdraw's idea, if all that fabric was filled with helium it would help lighten the load.

    I'm thinking either hydraulics or anti gravity but the legs / base will need to be super chunky.

    Dayle: I was hoping the character would be a more prominent feature in this brief, but I may have contradicted myself slightly with the heavy gravity thing forcing people for more enclosed robot designs rather than open exo suits with environmental gear on.

    I'm going to drop the heavy gravity criteria, to try and encourage more open suit designs, or make it optional incase anyone has already started on a heavy gravity concept.

    Maybe something more like this? (but with breathing gear)

    I am going for the sketch on the right, it is a closed suit design, but still has the exoskeleton as part of the design.

    Thanks for the clarification Moirae, I will try and have a go at a design (great film reference btw)

    Wa0 - I really like your designs. The head and shoulders of the first are best in my opinion because you get to see the face and I prefer the organic forms.

    very rough first sketch. Going for a rougher look, kind of old style patched together. The cris crossing patterns are replacement chains for the saw that will be in the full design

    Here is my idea. I don't think I will have time to finish this one.

    I definitely took a more industrial mech take, rather than specific exo-suit design. So probably exempt from actual judging, but here's my take on it anyway.
