"It's been a long time. How have you been?" :icongladospls:

Seriously,it has been a long time guys! :D
How are you all?Did you miss me?

This is my fifth illustration for a project :iconvbagi: and I are working on...Since I'm swamped with work,I can't devote much atention to this project,nor to any other personal work... :(
But,in time,I'll find some ways to make my work easier and make some free time for that.Anyway,the Enai's and the Ares have gone through some changes-I redesigned their armor,drawing inspiration
from the new Halo 4 armors.
In case you forgot,the Enai's are a race of super-humans,who share the planet (name) with the Ares(ordinary humans).The Ares see Enai's as their gods.They worship the Enai's emperor,Daimon Noma and they strongly believe that he is a direct descendant of Nomardih,a serpent-like dragon,that Enai's worship.
Here we see an Enai Nomardih trooper,who are an elite group of soldiers,and are considered as the best warriors on the planet.They don't like using weapons,but they will,if they're cornered.Instead of guns,they like to use blades,and they rely on their shields to protect them until them get close to the enemy.
The Ares(the ones in the back) are totaly different-they're not agile like the Enai's and they don't have such strong shields.Instead,they have big,thick armors,and because of that,they seem much bigger than the Enai Nomardih soldiers.
Same story with the ships-while the Ares have strenght in numbers,the Enai's have strenght in power.The Ares have average ships,average size while the Enai's have enormous ships,size of a moving city.

Hey. Do you mind if I use this as inspiration for a drawing of mine? I've been making a story -- called Legacy -- in which there are two generations of humans (among a large array of extraterrestrials): the Aldios (our generation, a good 2780 years into the future) and the Terraphilos (the succeeding generation of humans). The armor that I intend to draw is for the Aldios. *Also of note: in the sense that there are two types of humans, Legacy and VBagi's tale are similar, but I'd wager that there are quite a few differences otherwise. I just hope that you don't assume that I was stealing your work.*

I don't mind at all, mate. I'm glad you see inspiration in this! :)
Good luck in your project! :D

Thanks! After a while, I'm going to be posting up my character designs; I'll let you know, if you're fine with that.

I seriously just love the lines of this armor, and the way it is is curved on the helmet, not to mention all those fine detail engravings on the armor itself. Absolutely gorgeous. All the world development you have around it is so cool u_u

the armour weapons and environment are all great, which makes the lack of originality in the weapons design a bit grating.

I like how the armour is not only cool but elegant. All to often the only goal is to make them look badass, and little consideration is put towards anything else.

Wow. I don't know what you did here but this looks amazing. Also, I don't want to sound rude but this is vastly improved over your previous "Enai Nomardih troopers" piece (I'll elaborate below... just fanboyism lol)

First off, the redesigned armor is much better looking than the previous iteration (though I understand completely that it was more sketchy versus the sharper and cleaner lines here). While the old version had a regal and knightly look to it, it looked relatively flat against its background. This has more contrast -- the black linings in the base layer of charcoal armor, the intricate carvings on the plate armor, etc. Also, with the use of the darker base armor, the gold and gunmetal plate armor really pop more.

The lighting is interesting. There are two sources -- the fire on the bottom and the sun on the left. I really liked how there is a sheen on some of the armor near the fire and the lighting cast on the Enai (leaving the Ares in the background and out of mental focus). My only suggestion is to make the Enai's gold plates more reflective/metallic. From a narrative standpoint, it is not the most practical for combat BUT it further conveys the sense of their status as "gods amongst men" (like a halo) and their self-confidence (in a sense, like the flashiness of Honor Guard elites).

The Enai also looks stronger here because the body structure is more defined and tailored due to the more segmented plate armor. The black inlays do a great job of making the Enai look more flexible, dexterous, and strong. The reduced bulkiness (and, subsequently the pose) also better conveys the Enai's confidence and authority than before.

Not to direct your time or creative thoughts but it'd be interesting to see the Ares in its own full-body piece (perhaps, as a squad to show off some different angles).

Also, though I am unfamiliar with the narrative, have you considered varying the armor to denote an Enai's rank or allowing the Enai to have particular interests/customization? For example, perhaps some prefer single long-swords, broadswords, etc. instead of the paired short swords here. Or, they might like having a shoulder pauldron, more fearsome chest plates, etc.

Thanks for reading! Please keep up the great work. Also, thanks for directing me to VBagi's gallery: great stuff there too!

Hey mate!Sorry it took me so long to answer-like I mentioned,I don't get much free time these days. :)
Anyway,thank you for this elaborate comment-I'm glad you liked the picture. :D
I've uploaded a new work with Ares,so you can see their new armor on it.As for the Enai's customization-they all have the same armor-the only difference are the carvings on it-it varies per soldier.They all go through the same training,learning different styles and everything there is about the sword and how to use it.They all carry two swords,but they all have their own favorite style(which they can choose anytime they want because the know plenty of them,which makes them very unpredictable).Their sword's blade can change it's length,so it can vary from a simple knife to a long-sword. :)

Oh yeah, for sure! (I read your description too btw)

I appreciate the reply, given your schedule.
