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:
Created by ABEL Inc in 1989
Power: Enhacement of Speed, reflexes and maintian regular metabolism. May warp time-space around user temporarily.
Includes an energy chain and a laser whip for the user to "attach" or fixate at a spot through a "race".
Current user: Melissa Walker (NZ)

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:
Lissa is the daughter of Dr. Walker. She has a twin brother, Lance. Regarded as one of the best students, her physical prowess is equated to her ease to see things in differents points of view. Far from being aloof by the possibilities, she's quite objective and effective in her missions, becoming much times decisive in taking actions (that being why her armor fits perfectly her personality). Standing between critical and loyal, she's without a doubt a wild-card in missions. She will talk only when she has anything to add about it, and her arguings tends to be rather counsels and warnings, having no interest in any who may have any grudge behind her back. Lately she developed interest in following a vegan diet, for many reasons, from fitness to animal ethics and environmental consciousness. That is seen as an eccentricity by most of her fellows. She likes to break limits, including her own. To that, she is really headstrong for someone who just reached legal adulthood.
It's a strict law maintaining the identity of the alphabet-series users a secret, even in school-grounds. However, letting loose her characteristic ponytail, she gives her identity away pretty easily, for she isn't afraid of anyone under AXIS' roof, despite not knowing all the intents of professors and heads of the corporation. That made her extremely popular, but regularly not close enough to others (she has developed some kind of social aloofness), relating distinctively between colleagues, team-mates and people in her ordinary life. That leads some to erroneously see her as "selfish".

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 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!
