Still a bit absent here, still relatively active on instagram and facebook, so either way those recent drawings can be some news!
I've designed 13 armors from a part of the "Alpha-Omega series" in collaboration with Guiler-717. His 14 armors plus mine make all the alphabet (and if you guessed it right, the additional letters from numeral system). The whole project will be posted at my behance soon.

Background Story:
ZETA
Created by ABEL Inc in 1982
Power: Unlimited Flight, Levitation, Hurricane and Wind Current control
Current user: Benjamin Phillips (UK)

Currently owned by the private institution known as AXIS Military Academy, which mission is protect Tredius from demon-related threats (actually, an initiative by Ulhaden Corp & ABEL Inc, two major weapon industries that have created the Alpha-Omega series armors. The AXIS is more likely an academy for young bounty hunters who're unknowingly testing a likely inhuman technology, and doing the dirty job for the UN to "cleanse" everything dangerous that escapes its hidden slave pits)

About the pilot:
Ben is a son of a wealthy family and the youngest from a generation of Ace Pilots serving the United Nations. He uses the armor since 2007 (the story covers up from late 2008 ownwards). Sometimes arrogant, always firm on duty. His status earned him higher than "bounty hunter status", leveling the Zeta Armor to knowledge of international military ranks, being highly respected in his missions. He particularly hates the unknown (dubbed "demons"), even though would understand those who've got a condition to turn into a vampire or a werewolf, like a friend of his, Drake. He also is supportive of Nicholas (a newcomer) views on the responsibility of the soldiers to their authority. He dislikes insubordinance, and as such is suspicious of the Walker twins, who're more or less related to former professor Morgan.


This side-project* consist of a series of armors and high tech gear developed by two distinct fictional enterprises and some "un-invited guests", all products of a previous project for an ultimate soldier. Different directions and results led to new analysis on the powers, which culminated in armors containing from elemental-based to physical enhacement and even space-time warping powers.
To house such classified average-tested armors at the disposal of something other than the belicous enterprises, a joint was formed, in no better facade as a school on its own: The AXIS Military Academy is like a school grounds for combatants, tacticians and fellows from other areas of human knowledge of greatest need in the likes of an upcoming catastrophe (such as healing, surviving, leading and fixing - to illustrate it better, it was officially formed around the turn of the millennium, and they're constantly warned about the changes in the world, politically and geographically).
To make things more dubious, a secret group of students are given the alphabetic, lettered armors (the others are given any of numeric value and with regular powers from a production-line), once they've matched the required specs to wear them. Constantly tested, sometimes it's in the grades (solving complex systems and having prowess of thinking in possibilities and achieving deductions), in the physical prowess (swimming, running, etc) or through good old duels between two or more students that seem fit (with the loser having no knowledge of the armor it was ever entitled to wear). The school has a corpus of teachers which inherited some armors and others that develop new ones. They can choose to tutor a specific student from the alphabet series of armors, and will regularly form squads in the eternal hunt for missions no other soldier are trusted with.
An example of mission was to locate, for example, and find the reasons of a mass-murder in the venice coast. The goal would be both to find the culprit and neutralize it. Many agents would be required.

*- Even though having its own cast of characters, the events from the APKALLU Mythos affects them directly. This focus on the relations between the teenagers and young adults who wears the armors to hunt "demons", the other on a pre-teen who himself is arguably "half-demon".

Hope you like it!
