Special Forces by AlexJJessup Special Forces by AlexJJessup
Near-future design for US special forces. Mostly focused on the goggles, making them more interesting and compact yet believable. Just maintained the design language throughout the rest of the body after that.

My personal favorite is the mask with the teeth design. It's incredibly aggressive, horrific, and predatory. Reminds me of scary samurai masks. If I ever ran in to that guy I would want to get the hello out of there fast.

This design is very interesting and practical because the device will be compatible with the helmets (the mount for devices such as night vision). It means that production would be cheap and and march the massive production go to all the troops. Nice artwork!

Saw your image used by Swedish Newspaper "Aftonbladet". I hope they paid for it.

What's cool about this is that it seems realistic, as if we could really be seeing this in the future.

This work...is like...I can't even...just wow.  Perfect.  You should patent this design and make Ops Core and L3 (or Willcox) pay you to produce this for the military.  I'm not kidding.

Remember how I said I wanted to make a 3D version of this in Autodesk Maya?  Well, I need a five-point perspective of the helmets (top, sides, front, and behind) in order to do that.  I know this is asking a lot, but could you please do that for me?  The thought of me attempting to do a five-point perspective of this is appalling (not to mention legal stuff).

And is the helmet a Ops Core Maritime or a Team Wendy Exfil?  I would just like to know so I can assign the right dimensions to the helmet.  THANK YOU!

Thanks for thinking so highly of this! It's just entertainment design though. It's inspired some military industrial design but the actual industrial design and engineering that goes into a new helmet is much more in depth than this.

I don't currently have the time or interest to do turn arounds on this design haha. Sorry, just have to juggle work life and other projects. But helmet itself is a standard Ops Core Maritime helmet! Hope that helps. :)

Thanks! Not in the usual DA sense. I've done freelance for studios and companies, and the rate I get paid for that is more than individuals usually want to pay.

 This is what I want to do and what I'm trying to do. But my work are pure photobashings, only some elements are painted. I have to learn more about design and painting techniques from skilled artists like you.  Awesome work

Alex are you inspired by the minimal exo-suits at Boston dynamics that increase the operator's strength and stamina while operational? I do suppose that if one wishes to create the likeness of a 1st world soldier of the next current decade, perhaps dwell upon the relevance of augmented motion suits my friend.

Take Care Alex

Matthew.
