Warframe Shard Concept V2 by VicDeLaCruz Warframe Shard Concept V2 by VicDeLaCruz
Long-coming second version of my OC Warframe Shard. I softened and feminized the musculature a bit more yet kept her solid and athletic to fit into the strong physical tanking role I designed her for. I also gave a more layered jagged look rather than raised bony plates and flowing razor shard growths in a more natural moulding from the limbs. The headpiece now has no "hair" and has a spiked crown shape framing her head.

Wow looks great, although the helmet might be difficult for the designers to make lol. I wish i could do drawings as detailed as you do.

Thanks for the compliments! I think they could pull the helmet off, they have done more elaborate ones. That being said, I may change it a  bit more. I think closer to what Valkyr's "Original" Helmet would have looked like had the panels not been ripped out during the experiments.

Dang... I love your ideas SO much, I might just try and make the DE for Warframe. Unfortunately it will be a while till then. Also about how they said they can't wait to see it colored. I think they are waiting on an official "final" release by you and maybe give them an idea on how they should color the unique bits, like where the primary, secondary colors would be or the tints and energy colors. Really good ideas, and to be honest, I would not wait for them to make Shard. I would keep making more and more ideas, not too fast, but enough to get them to really consider you. Most everyone who has seen your work has already tried to put in good word. Shouldn't be too hard to get them to finally do something about it.

February 7, 2014,

It is now Valentine's day, and there is still no coloring of Shard. Most thought that Megan's eagerness to see Shard colored would be enough, but it turned out to be false. I guess we can only hope for the colored version to be done soon. It's looking unlikely, but the community still has hope.

It would be enough, if it was not for actual family issues. Not that I need explain mind you, but there was an illness involved and a very impromptu move. One must keep in mind I am only one person and I only have so much free time on my hands. I am flattered that Megan and the community like shard enough for this to even be a thing. The community has been an oddly contradictory mix in response to my designs, so I truly am surprised that such a strong response to Shard not being coloured has been posted. I always get to the projects I set out to finish but as it should be the case always, family life comes first.

That sounded almost like you thought I was being negative. "It's looking unlikely, but the community still has hope."

I really hope you keep doing what you do. I would love to see them finally put in a community made Warframe. I mean, Nova was. But she was made by multiple different people, and the idea was DE's. But none the less, I look forward to see more of your stuff.

Oh, I by no means was trying to come off rude or defensive. That response was coming from a place after many "unconstructive" comments on the official site and it already had me in a sour mood, so I apologize if there was any offense.

I have already done a third pass on her design and am close to colouring it. Gave a better overall look and made some details a bit less bulky while adding more to the overall "Shard" theme. I hope to have that up on DA and the Warframe forums by the weekend. I am not really part of the design council at all, but I have a lot of good friends and supporters who do like my ideas and i do this mostly for them. While it would be fantastic to have my designs in the game, I understand that they may never be officially considered unless I was part of the council.

At any rate I am eager to see the feedback on the new design! Thanks for the support and the comments.

1. Defiant Retaliation: Shard extends her plates and angles them so she deflects all incoming projectile damage back at her attackers at the cost of taking 25% of damage received.

2. Rolling Death: Shard rolls into a ball and uses her plates as razors to roll around and cause damage to enemies and breaking containers (explosive or loot). The rolling mechanic and damaging would be similar to the Shredder balls the grineer use. Weaker enemies may be ground into chunks and stronger ones would be knocked down. This would last for a limited time and would be controllable for strategic use.

Just had those so far for a long while, milling over the last 2 useful ones. these are basically powers 3 and 4, the next 2 should be simpler in usage.

Hmm, sounds  kinda like radial javelin in a way, AOE damage that kills fast. Maybe Make Rolling Death her ultimate and this could be the third skill. 

Maybe Razor Rain: Shard pelts the area around a target with hundreds of razor sharp shrapnel pieces doing damage over time and causing a bleed effect.

Hmm that would be cool, like maybe activate it and instead of wall run or slide you sink spikes into it and hunker down like a wall turret, sniping enemies or scouting an area.
