warhammer

i would have to agree with the others it sorta looks like starcraft but also a mix of warhammer 40k space marines armor which is totally badass other then that the shading and the mix of what looks like a bomb going off (probly the simbolism of the while paint) gives it a more out look on the world you have created

Exoscelletons yay

@the two down below me:
One of the first appearances and likely widest known beside Starcraft is the Universe of Warhammer 40000 where you'r average Space Marine (same name... curious hu?) allways wears a powerarmor. Granted 40K marines are 2.40metres without armor, genetically enhanced, no prisoners (but zealous psychopaths none the less) - but it's FAR older then Starcraft (which in itself is pretty old allready for a computer game). I'm not sure why powerarmors (or the like) have been the style lately but thats just the way it is.

@The Artist:
It's a ...curious picture. The powerarmor is as overdrawn as it is on a 40K spacemarine (that is if you try to layer a normal human, and by normal i mean normal joints, over the armor it doesnt fit, unless the armor is paperthin. Otherwise he looks like some damn serious firepower (autocannon and cyclone-missile launcher would fit it for 40k by design xD(nearly a Dreadnought at least a Terminator...)). Otherwise it's a pretty dark picture of some heavily armed men stomping over the remains of a battlefield slaughtering the rest of the enemy. That's how it feels to me. Oppressive. Lethargic. Bored.
If that was your goal to achieve by expression and overall design you've done pretty well.

Exoskeletal armor

This reminded me of StarCraft immediately as well. If yours has nothing to do with StarCraft, where did your inspiration come from instead? Thanks!

that's fail. Now every exoskeletal armor is instantly "oh starcraft" even if design, mechanics and scale is completely different.
