it looks more like another power ranger than a sci-fi fighter
I think "now io" has very little imagination,(what is Now-io doing on DA?...sigh... guess everyone has to start somewhere), but then so many on this planet always want to change things to suit their pre-conceptions....
Why do I say this? Because I am pretty talented with imagination, but am also a human being that listens and looks first and attempts to put my brain in gear before allowing my mouth to shoot off, so, here goes:
This is a perfectly good representation of a sci-fi soldier, (I have been reading sci-fi for longer than most people on DA, (early 1950's), so feel I can talk a little on the subject)
Why is this a perfectly good representation of a sci-fi soldier? Because:
A: Who's to say what type of weapon he uses and whether it is concealed to make him aerodynamic whilst at rest or merely travelling.
B: His "weapons" could be Psionic or Psychic, therefore requiring little or no hardware
C: He could be about to make a call via comms home to his mum/girlfriend/boyfriend/sister/brother etc....
D: Even "Soldiers" need to go to the loo....
E: His gear is in the ready room waiting for when he goes back on duty.
F: His weapons are on this armour(?) but "cloaked" so adverseries will take him for an explorer/civilian/medic etc wearing an exoskeleton for survival in this hostile atmosphere.
I could go on ad nauseum... but you get the point..right?
Don't allow your soldier to be bullied!.... excellent deviation! faving...... 3... 2... 1... P.
Hi, I see your point... and a very generous one it is too!
I don't feel you created any misunderstanding; I certainly don't feel misled in any way at all, nor, apparently, did the 8 other people who have left such
unreservedly, positive comments.., although that is not a proof that Now io is wrong! I wouldn't be that generous I'm afraid... why? because Now io was still wrong! and they are contradicting themselves! two errors! Why?
Now io made an assumption, ("why is he a "fighter"? what does he have what devines him as one?"), about what sci-fi soldiers must look like. Not what they "could" look like... and that! is the sort of statement that is created by a lack of imagination teamed up with prejudice!, a common combination, and in no way a valid "critique" Please note again that: no-one else has stated that it doesn't give the right impression, and generally folk are an observant bunch on this site... for obvious reasons.
And: Now io has stated(and I quote): "...it looks more like another power ranger than a soldier..."
Power Rangers are, in fact, soldiers!... and the world they inhabit is one that anyone I've ever met would call a "sci-fi" one!; plus: their TV series is a constant battle between them and "the forces of evil" like the "Warstar" villains. Thus: Now io has stated that the deviation gives the "impression", of being at the very least: "a type of sf warrior" I'm sure you would agree that "soldier" and "warrior" are essentially interchangeable?
Now io, therefore, contradicts themselves by stating that "Male Sci-Fi Soldier" does in fact, even in their own eyes!, "do what it says on the box":
depict a "Male SF Warrior/Soldier"**
Best wishes, Peter.
* "pre-judging" is the real meaning of this word, as I'm sure you know.
**though the "male" bit, is in fact, the one thing that the deviation doesn't, in an obvious way, show. I have seen many women with the ensemble of:
Well-developed, "male-looking" physiques, narrow "boyish" hips and "flat" chests...
WTF? How can something be so f*in awesome? (sadly it was out loud lol)
But really WOOOOOOWW!!:
This is so perfect I love the colors the shading the built, the head and the arms are just so lovely, like remains of an ancient but advanced civilization, like Atlantis for example. It's truly wonderful.
