Argus by Tabnir Argus by Tabnir
More DEV artwork: House Spaeta's "Argus" armor. The painted "maw" of the helmet is a homage to MP Evas, and the head knife is a nod to both Robot Unicorn Attack [YES!] and Gundam Unicorn. The large claw on the back can be bound to one of the arms; since it can swing around and change sides as necessary, it also functions as a 'tail' of sorts to assist balance.

I really like the design of this suit, especially the large claw on the back that can be attached to either arm, a intriguing touch.

But the most harrowing question still goes unanswered, is it a boy or a girl? I've been staring at this for like 20 minutes trying to figure out. In other words: [link]

the hip setting makes it look feminine don't you think?

I've seen some dudes with some fairly effeminane hips, plus the hips are armoured so that's not really the clearest indication.

that's totally legit but generally speaking, those guys are exceptions to the rule no?

Only if you're bi-sexual or somewhat bi-curious, to a straight guy like myself, no.

Unless you were talking about a different rule in which case this conversation just became very awkward.

ieatb3ars Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2012
Oh, I meant to say that very few guys have such an effeminate hip. Looking from the rear view, the hips are set a little lower too, where there is no armor plating, and produce a pear-like figure (an even rarer body shape for men). So, unless this is a very unique man, it's probably a chick(?).

Yup, definitely became awkward...

Anyway your logic is sound so I choose to accept it.

I like how you worked in the EVA reference with the helmet design. Even if its asymmetric it reads very well, one very fearsome piece of power armor!

:iconfels-in-der-brandung:
Yeah, my first though was naked EVA. I like the concept with the arm, makes sense from a technological perspective (imho).

hey i have a question that is probably a stupid one.
Is the "toothy grin" on his helm wear he actually sees out of? or would the toothy grin actually be located near the mouth?
ha don't wanna be "that guy" but i cant stop studying this piece, its so epic in its functionality and design!

It's not a visor, although it's supposed to look like one. The tooth plates serve to lock the upper and lower sections of the helmet together and will retract into the dome and jaw when the helmet stows itself.
