I spent my entire life to imagine and design this project. This project that you would be tempted to call "armor". But you're far away from the truth. This is more than a simple armor. It's beyond that.

I created this suit to allow the wearer to operate in any conditions and environments. Indeed, it has the ability to adapt to the environment which surrounds it. Not visually but in terms of survivability. Its most important features are:
- A temperature sensor and regulator system to withstand and to adapt to extreme temperatures, and evolve both in flames and snowstorms without any difficulty.
- An aquabreather with a mask and oxygen cylinders to evolve underwater.
- Seven blades on the helmet to protect the face against ennemies, but also to swim faster through their role of metal fins.
- An air filtration device and a gaz mask to evolve in stifling places and to annihilate the action of toxic gazes.
- A water jet propulsor to exit out of the water quickly in case of emergency.

You can call it whatever you want. The amphibian battle suit, the amphibian repair suit, the amphibian protection suit, the amphibian chameleon suit... You get the idea. I personnally use it for my own buisiness. "Your own buisiness ?" you must wondering. Well, some rich people hire me to do the dirty job. When they just don't want to get their hands dirty. And even if they wanted to take the risk to do it, they couldn't. That's why they come to me. They know I'm multitask and good at it. Indeed I acquired many skills during my life that make me the perfect person for the job. I can do almost everything and everywhere. Yes, because above all, I can do it in every most dangerous and mortal environments that exist, where nobody else can.
I am what people could call a kind of secret agent or mercenary.

My most regular missions include :
- Find and gather rare artefacts and treasures, often in wrecks or debris.
- Repair stuff. Most of the time big machines and submarines.
- Harvest rare and very expensive ressources that can be found only in unlivable places.
- Find and destroy dangerous machines or other magical artefacts which could harm my employers' buisiness.
- Collect precious mechanical pieces.
- More rarely eliminate dangerous people.

In the end no one really controls me. Because I do this only for the money and to survive. And according to my terms I negotiate my salary. I obey to no one and no one is my master. I'm free. This is who I am.

Hello! This is my 2nd entry for the contest. When the contest was announced I got several ideas and as everyone is allowed to entered once per race, I decided to make another look. While my first look is more steampunk, I'm not sure in which category put this one. But as the contest is not only about steampunk, but also other punk styles, I thought it would still fit in the contest ! ^-^

Anyway, for this look my first idea was to create a kind of droid. But it slowly turned out as something different. This armor is supposed to look like an armor that is able to adapt to any environment. On the ground and underwater. I didn't want it to look too shiny or clean. On the contrary I wanted it to look old and used. To reflect the underwater side, I chose this helmet and this backpiece, to ressemble an old diving suit and a aqualong. I chose weapons that could reflect the underwater world (hammer), repair tools (other hammer, mace), and other technical stuff to reflect the mechanical side (sword, axe, second mace, staff, shield ).

Hope you like the look and good luck to everyone for the contest ! :-}

I loove the background story it's really interesting and cool and you really captured the essence of your concept very well.
I like this more "rusty" dye mix it's very neat and not too polished. The weapons are very fitting as well and I love the backpiece because it reminds me a little bit of a jetpack ^^
Your screens are as always so beautiful and stunning and I really love them.
Gold from me :3

I simply cant get over how awesome this idea is!
For me those kind of steam powered working suits fit the steampunk theme perfectly!
The whole idea is so SO unique!!!!!!!!
Your dyes and weapons are spot on for the theme and round up the style quite impressively!
Personally i like to imagine that the blades on the head are needed to pull her suit out of the water in case of a malfunction.
Also the theme reminds me a little bit of a part of the campaign of "timesplitters future perfect".
Its such a stunningly unique theme, Gold Gold Gold :D

She looks so awesome in the screens!
I love how much detail you put into story and description and that you used so many different, but fitting weapons.
In the underwater screens it really looks like an old diving suit ;)
I think with your looks, you are your biggest rival in the steampunk contest xD
Much Gold for the armor and you got my upvote :)

Very unique steam punk look!!! Just amazing!
I like the use of the back piece. It looks like oxygen tank in the water & a jet pack on land.
The shield & helm look like they were made for each other too.
Gold for you

What's awesome about your designs is the attention to detail. For instance, what stuck out for me was the jagged, BLADED, edge of the shield is a great compliment to the helmut. A tiny thing maybe, but it's details like this that make the whole thing come together perfectly.

Well done!

I love how stiff you make the character look in these screens. Adds to the armor theme imo. Very cool :D
