Twilight's armor 01

I could've sworn I'd posted these sketches along with Commission: MLP Magetek Armor Designs 01 by Baron-Engel and  Roseclaw's armor 01 by Baron-Engel  but apparently not. This is for a commission I am working for :iconchakat-goldfur: Twilight is not expected to be a direct combatant in the breaking of the siege of The Crystal Empire  Composition thumbnails 01. But she has a suit, both for protection but also to convey her rank and office in the operation.

    For that reason I drew inspiration for Twilight's armor from Northern Italian Gothic armor of the mid 15th century; while at the same time attempting to incorporate some of the magetech feel of the other suits.

I hope you like what you see. Please help make more art like this possible by supporting me at Patreon Patreon Icon

How to do you  look up how to get steel to certain colors cause I can't seem to find it

Steel and various metal surfaces can be tricky to recreate. Unfortunately I don't have an immediate source to recommend. For this piece Twilight's armor will be anodized to kind of match her coat color.

I love that armor. I seem to recall that Medieval European armor reached its development in Northern Italy, in the Milan workshops?
Baron-Engel's avatar
Well Milan was one of the centers along with a lot of Northern Italy during this time period. Another important region was around Augsburg which developed it's own style of armors and arms.

The Maximilian style? I seem to remember that Henry VIII brought some German armorers to England to start a native armor industry.

Yes but that is a bit later in history.

I does look a bit sci-fi. I feel it is mostly the visor that gives that feeling. Well, that and the lack of leather straps holding everything together.

Well I wanted that magic-technology vibe so that's not a bad thing.

Take it however you want. I do not know how much tech or magic you wanted on it, so it could go either way.

I am just saying what I see Dance!

The important thing is its what the client wanted, and they're paying the bill.

I still say the Magitek armor needs to be Red and Gold in color.  :)
