I'm branching out and making this it's own thread (previous thread found here) since I want to take this character to completion.

Here is the current progress, 

The black suit is still very WIP, but I wanted to hear some opinions on the suit design. It's supposed to be a flight suit, with synthetic muscles to keep the wearer's body safe in the event of an impact and can help the wearer lift more weight planetside, or in the case of a planet with gravity less than Earth's, it can simulate forces similar to Earth to keep the wearer's muscular system from deteriorating.

Background on the project is this is the flight commander of a NASA mission in 2048 called Operation Spearhead. She's part of a 3 man group, that travels to distant planets and surveys them for terraforming potential.

    Continuing with the flight suit. This is a super rough sketch of the approximate details I'm looking at. Any crit on the suit design is greatly appreciated!

    Hey man! 
    Looking stellar so far. Do you have any points of reference you are working from? Are you planning to add any exo support for the suit? would be nice to see some nice hard body stuff to contrast your smooth contoured shapes. Supports for major joint areas, like clavical, knees, elbows est.  would be really cool as well. 

    Keep it up man.

    Thanks for the kind words! So currently, forearms, knees, shins, helmet and some parts of the back are going to have the majority of the hard surface detail (yet to be added). As for references I'm trying to wing it, which is why I've been doing real quick dynamesh sculpts just to help figure out the details I like. Though my main sources of inspiration are the Crysis nanosuit and the Shield Weaver armor from Horizon: Zero Dawn




    Basically the flight suit is the base-layer, it's what the astronaut wears on planets for life support, however it has it's limitations such as only a 5-10 min air supply for EVA in space, only good down to -100 deg C, etc. But I plan to add hookup points for other accessories, you can see some very rough ones on the front view (the circular metal things). Those are what military personnel who also wear the flight suit would attach armor to and the like. Though I don't actually plan on including that for my science officer, just a simple holster for a sidearm when they go through areas of potential piracy.
