Talk about games other than Destiny. We don't mind.

Forerunner Armors. Again!

A year ago I tried my hand and imagination at visualizing the exoskeletal armor suits of the Forerunners. I gave it another go, aiming for a slightly less rigid feel. For those of you versed in Halo lore, the hard light cloaks are of course far from canon (at least as far as I know), but I found the concept interesting enough to experiment. If anything the cloak concept reminds me of the Destiny universe, so blame it on a bit of cross-pollination. Must be the hype... ( and if any of the developers at Bungie should happen to sneak a peek: feel free to borrow it for any upcoming expansions. Wink, wink.)

    I really like the one on the right, the holo cloak looks really cool. [spoiler]Inb4 hired by Bungie or 343. [/spoiler]Something like this deserves some kind of community spotlight.

    Left-Warlock Middle-Titan Right-Hunter You clearly took inspiration from Destiny for this, I really like the armour though (not the cloaks, the actual skin) it looks REALLY cool.

      The cap on the left helmet looks kinda off with the rest of the design. Imo I think it would look better without the 2 points of the cap. Also the poses are kinda weird given the scenery. They are soldiers in armor and posing like walk way models. The actual armor and aesthetics look top notch though.

        Developers don't really look at Fanfiction and stuff because of legal reasons. Sorry to burst your bubble. Aside from that, they are seriously awesome. (The one on the right looks like a quarian though) What did you use to make them?

          • Looks very Destiny to me. Hmm... Cloaks are canon (See: Halo 4 Terminals) however they aren't as ornamental or complex as that. Although, I would like to see your take on the attire for the Forerunner Star Festival(?). And maybe some Forerunner headdresses and hats since they were big on that. Architecture looks great in the background. From a lore standpoint (obviously you have creative freedom here), I'd recommend you base the Forerunner armors off of MJOLNIR. Or better yet, what we already have with Halo 4. That being said, the majority of Forerunner attire we see in Halo 4 is Warrior-Servant oriented. As always, love your work, and wish your threads here got way more attention than they do.

          • Wow, those look cool. Good Job. It'd be awesome if we got to see some more stuff about the forerunners, their history and culture in future Halo games. Anyone else agree?

            Nice artwork. I love the background stuff. As for the three figures... The face/helmet is distinctly reminiscent of something I can't put my finger on. I think the shawls are really original in that they look so silly I've never seen them done in a professional work like that before.

            What would you name the cloak if it was an item in Destiny?
