Stages in creating an armour design. I started with a basic grey anatomy sketch, then began to layer the armour design on top.
The general idea behind the armour is that it is futuristic, but ragtag. The idea was that every soldier's armour and weapons would be different, as they patched up, augmented and customised them with whatever they could find on the battlefield.
This armour is meant to match the weapons posted earlier.
