Project 2: Battle Helmet
Just a few ongoing attempts to create an illustration of the battle helmet.
Dateline: Monday 26th, August, 2013.
First version (bug helmet) was modelled in a hurry. This is the second attempt, will try to refine things as I go along, if the appeal is successful.
Trying to refine the technical details and explore the 3D elements of the helmet. Problem will be to model it effectively in 3D. Will try and explore this after completing the script and crowd funding appeal.
Design is as practical and real-world as possible. The smooth cap shell reflects body armour designs from ancient through to modern times. Whereas a video game/film SF battle suit would be bristling in technical details a true suit would have to be a simple, refined, smooth as possible to keep clean of fallout and other contamination on the battlefield and reduce the damage to delicate sensing instruments (concealed under the rim of the cap, chin, etc).
Entire "cap" and face mask rotates upwards, pivoting on the point marked just behind the ear, to expose the face when needed. Cheek and face mask may pivot separately internally to increase open exposure and slide it out of the way into the cap, or some other way open the helmet further.
Rest of the suit is similarly practical (but can't illustrate all of it at this stage, come back after success of funding and establishing production office and design team).
If the project is successful will have to look at creating suits for any enthusiast, perhaps with 3D printing from posed models so you can have one tailored to fit you or your children.
Dateline: Sunday 1st, September, 2013.
Decided to spend the week getting this done, best way to show you how it'll develop and means it's off my mind now!
