February, 2017: Living armor
1 Attachment(s)
Your armor protects you in many ways both physically and spiritually. This month’s challenge is to create Living Armor that connects with your being and is made of something organic. It can be plant, animal, insect, a combination of all, etc. Remember, it must be able to protect you under the most severe conditions!

edit: Winners Announced!

Crustation Human Exoskeleton
1 Attachment(s)
For this theme, I wanted to go with a bio-engineered crustation that a human wearer uses as an armored exoskeleton and physical enhancement system. I am basing the design off of prototype military exoskeleton systems and mixing it with creature designs of crabs and insects. Here are some thumbnails exploring a few design ideas, any feedback is welcome.

From Ghunda's diary

“Khalebur tribe had been fighting against the neighbouring villages for weeks.
And since the number of the victims was growing fast, too fast, the shamans decided to start a policy of “recycle”.
At night, when nobody was around, they chose among the corpses, the bodies of the youngest and strongest men who perished during the battle, and brought them to the Ancient Tree in Gundalla Forest.
At the bottom of the Tree there was a generous creek of resin where the heads of the bodies were soaked. After that, the corpses were gently placed on the ground so the shamans could start the complex ritual.
A space-time seal was summoned over the dead bodies and time was manipulated to transform the resin into a magical amber able to give the life back to the corpses. This special kind of amber, not only could bring back the spirits of the dead ones from the afterlife but also could give them a brand new body made of strong branches and covered in leaves, shrubs and small mushrooms.
A new army was ready for the war.

You cannot kill what's already dead..”

Here is my entry to the challenge! :D

Those blessed by this armor are seriously protected from physical harm. Once imbued with it's power, the forest will do all it can to protect the blessed, thickening where hit and grappling out of harms way to avoid that which it can't withstand.

My entry for this month's theme.

The exoskeleton design is based on a combination of Horseshoe Crab, King Crab, and scorpion elements.
