Vangard - Armored Guardian by 7THeaven Vangard - Armored Guardian by 7THeaven
An art trade with :iconulth001: He wanted to challenge my creativity in designing armor and weaponry in a form of a giant wolf warrior. And he's such a good sport for letting me use this for my comic Vangard. :D

Anyways, to elaborate on the concept of the Assassin's ability called Valor Forge (The ability of the assassins to manifest a weapon, armor, or tool. Each forge is completely unique to the user's fighting style). This lady assassin's Valor Forge is a giant armored wolf knight that obeys her every command. Think of Sajin's Bankai from Bleach (big fox guy) if you're familiar with him. :)

At first, I was like, oh, wow, that's a real cool wolf warrior. Than I noticed the girl and I was like O_O IT'S HUGE!!! Despite disliking giant mech thingies in general, I want one T_T

It's more of a summoned golem-thing from the use of her Valor Forge. Something along the lines of Final Fantasy.

Oops, wrong word XD Though in my mind, golems are the fantasy equivalent of mechs. Doesn't change the fact I still want one T_T

hmmmm very well done
the face is excellent, has a lot of facial muscle like features
And the sword! by goodness look at the detail in the middle with all that tiny gold texture
Thou there are some faults (criticism is needed for improvement) the Gold parts that is the prim of the shoulder pad, gold pieces in arms, legs and what not can use detail like the gold parts in that part of the sword that connects the handle to the blade
in fact more detail to everything? will give you a vivid piece people will look at for hours on end
but this is just amazing! twas worth the wait

I might have gotten lazy on the armor a bit, but then again I thouhgt of using him in the comic and I might go mad from all the details haha. Anyways thank you for the insight and thank you again, was a treat designing this ^^

hmmmm ever tried a different layer for the details?
it helps alot, like a layer for your lines and all on the plate underneath the shading and light, hell you could turn the lines on and off as you please.
im starting to think layers for each individual aspect to the art would be easier, despite it may mean more working on the art but oh well a little price to pay

i'll be glad to see that thing in the comic!
will their be different variations in the story?

7THeaven Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2011  Student Digital Artist
I mostly use layers for coloring. I draw the entire line art on one layer, I do this to save time and effort. If only I have enough time to save my art into separate layers, but sadly I don't :( Now I feel somewhat irresponsible for not putting more effort on the details haha :iconfoxhideplz:

Do you mean different variations of the same giant guardian warrior? Or different variations of other guardians like the one I drew?

well Now you know
and knowing is half the battle XD
It would be a long road to get to Perfect status, and even then Death be so close if you got to perfect perfect, unless your talented :]

Different variations of the Guardian warrior

I don't know but by just looking as the style of the guardian it's make me remember a Game called Warmachine's
he had the same style as the Cygnars (they had the same style of cloth and Armor) if you don't know how they look like they are like those [link] or [link]
But seriously, it's really awesome and well designed! *thumbs up from Facebook* +1
That's really deserve a favorite!
