Commission - Soldier Classes by Shimmering-Sword Commission - Soldier Classes by Shimmering-Sword
Here's a commission for :iconabellius: ~abellius of 3 classes of Miralukan soldiers for a Star Wars RP. I'll likely be doing an additional 3 designs in the future.
I'm also testing out a mosaic watermark on this image. The goal is for it to be completely unobtrusive for viewing, but almost impossible to edit out and easy to read. Don't worry, I wont be putting this on all of my images, let me know what you think about it :)

Each soldier has been given cybernetic eyes to allow then normal vision in conjunction with their natural force powers, which are also enhanced with temple implants.
All the suits are fully sealed and can attach air tanks for operations in vacuum or hazardous atmospheres. They can also equip jet packs for zero-g ops. Armored helmets contain coms gear and information displays, with supplemental communications and planning gear in wrist devices or pads.

On the left is the Recon/Sniper class. It's helmet has enhanced optics for surveillance and spotting. Loadout is generally light in order to remain mobile. Common primary weapon choices are a designated marksman blaster rifle (shown held), or for missions that call for extra power, a much larger combination blaster/projectile rifle.

Center is an Infiltrator class suit. It's loadout is the lightest and suit materials the most flexible for quick and stealthy movement. The soles of it's boots have special friction pads that allow it to scale walls. This character carries a light saber, pistol, and small knives.

Right most is the heavy trooper. With heavy armor and weapons it can take and deal out a lot of damage. Currently it carries a hip mounted tri-barrel blaster with large capacitors and cooling mechanisms.

The subject matter and the style remind me of the old Star Wars Sketch books of the '80's.  :)

I don't say why, but it is my favourite work in this folder. Maybe it because of I like hoods and swords.

Thank you! After all most concept arts of most Star Wars look like this. For Example Boba Fett.

The sniper rifle reminds me of the Halo sniper rifle... in design obviously.

I can kinda see the "not so Star Warsy" look with the first two, but I don't mind that issue because they look like something that could actually be designed (and useful, as opposed to trying to see much through stormtrooper helmets).

And I definitely would want that heavy trooper around. Love that armor.

I think the problem with people "not seeing the starwars" is that all they ever see is storm troopers and wookies :D I don't know much about the deeper universe, but there are definitely a ton of races out there, room for lots of variety.

Well, most medium/heavy armor you tend to see in games/movies/comics/etc seem to take their design cues from either a) Mandalorian armor, or b) Storm trooper/clone trooper armor. And the light armor seems to take most of its cues from the Rebel's armor in ANH/ESB/RotJ. And Jedi armor tends to still have Jedi clothing bits somewhere on it.

So "not seeing the star wars" might just mean that it doesn't resemble the movie/Clone Wars/(Ko)TOR designs much, if any. ;)

Well you could easily cut out two of those and keep the solider like tank and then create a new class with the two you've cut and then just sketch up more figures its more work but well it can be worth it.
