    I don't think the concern is so much about whether it's literally metal plating or kevlar that these guys are wearing, but rather that a lot of the concept images you posted like pseudo-Fascist military garb, or are inspired BDSM-fetish wear, whereas the armor of the UT99 Metal Guard guys is pretty functional and contains hints of that, but is generally just a straightforward breastplate + protective bits and mask, with colors and metal filigree that ties it all together with a royal-guard style look.

      I got an idea of how to add more metal to the look without making them look so knightly.
      I just can't believe I'm the only one who thinks "make them look like knights in space in a sci fi shooter" is stupid.
      Sadly, if the masses clamor for it, that's the visual direction epic will give them.
      See, I perceive those pads as metal plates, with the faint dappling resembling a tinted or painted shine (like how modern car paint is reflective). They resemble the modular composite armor used on main battle tanks, which is quite appropriate for a blood sport where rockets and flak shells are flying everywhere, and it's thematically consistent with the Metal Guard as a whole: Artificially enhanced lunatics sponsored by Xan.

      That's not to say that I take issue with your "make them look like riot cops in space in a sci fi shooter" philosophy, I just don't draw the connection.

        I like the general direction you're going with this. Also: Thank you so much giving the female a proper torso plate.
        Though a bit more ornate styling would keep with the overall theme of previous skins.

        Starting with functional plate like you have going, but dressing it up so each one looks more like a royal officer rather than a generic goon.

            This looks promising.

              Started some studies of forearm and shoulder armor.
              Eventually I'll do torso and knee+shin guard armor.

              Sorry man, I'm not going for the "futuristic butlers in space" look.

                    I don't see the relationship between these "Harlequins" and the Metal Guard. Perhaps a better pic?

                    For the chestplate, I think the lowermost one looks the best.The first is not bad either.
                    Change for the worse, and you regret every moment.
                    Change for the better, and you can't live without it.
                    Having the will to embrace change is the real challenge.

                        The image for each Harlequin was too small for actual detail. In addition, a lot of them are in poses which do not show the masks clearly. It's not trolling, just wanted a better pic to relate the two.

                          Your chest armors are great, maybe except the 3rd one. What do you think?
                          Who me?
                          I drew them so I gues I like them.
                          I admit the 3rd one may be too bare around the abs and obliques.
                          -And those were shoulder pads BTW.
                          Sorry if I didn't illustrate that clearly enough :s

                            The old UT99 Characters should be 1:1 overtaken,
                            only optimized the bio-things like arms , legs and skins if be skins to see,
                            the armoury optimized (from the grafic and rendering)
                            but the other should be in honor original, for an Recognition .
                            And by the way, CognizanCe, the warcow is cool !

                            best regards

                              Spent some more time on these, really trying to get my ideas across.
                              Like I said, this was my fav faction.












                              Again, more swat, professional, tactical, possible varying degrees of sadism.
                              This time made the armor a lot less form fitting. Less sleek. More bulky.Les sci fi./
                              I think that ended up giving them a bit more of a Jin roh kinda feel to them this time around.

                              No "space butlers" or "space royalty" but that's just how I like them.

                                I think you're going in the right direction with those paintings. Compromise is usually a good solution when two equally valid but totally different views on a thing collide like this.
