Sci-Fantasy: SPACESUIT IS HIGHLY INFLUENCED BY ANCIENT AMERICAN CULTURE
unfortunately the only thing i know about american culture is the break from the commonwealth and the indians have beautiful feathers... .. heh.. pretty clueless, sorry. i'll have to pass on this one.

With the coming of the space age, and generations of men never seeing a habitable planet, so came the space illness, settling in many varied ways, and causing mankind to splinter into groups trying to keep an indentity amongst the madness.
One such group became convinced they are descended from the Maya of Earth.

I loved the results from everyone here!
Critiques and overpaints of my work are both welcome and encouraged, as I am fairly new to the art of sketching.

Agree. Really cool ideas for this topic! Reminding me somewhat of the concepts for "The Fifth Element" by Luc Besson. Why must spacesuits always look like spacesuits?

I read the description and got this mental image of a big, clunky gold spacesuit. Looking at it again, I think I filled in the gaps with one of those yellow CDC Bio-Hazard suits
I was looking at Eskimo totems.
a couple of these really goive off a stargate g'ould feel... im liking them. :nod:
Did it yesterday but conceptart.org seemed to be down or something
Finished it off now - had a test today. Not directly a spacesuit, but a statue of an alien guy, made by inkas or somethin, dunno. Hope ye like it
