Ileman-Loch Aetarius FOIL by VulnePro Ileman-Loch Aetarius FOIL by VulnePro
Ileman-Loch's 5th generation Light Strike FOIL Aetarius was produced in the same time period the previously posted Ileman-Loch Auaris-SOMR (Special Operations Multi Role) combat FOIL. They both share some slight cosmetic similarities and are both high mobility machines designed for combat operations requiring speed and precision. Beyond that though the Aetarius is more of a workhorse front line machine. Slightly heavier on armor than the Auaris-SOMR Aetarius is quite capable of taking punishment. Aetarius is somewhat of a beefed up high speed infantry FOIL at heart though quite capable with bladed weapons.

The example pictured here is a Polemon machine in service of the Free SOL allied forces that stand in the face of the Siege of the Black Son. It sports pattern breaker on the covering on the limbs and tonal variation breaker on the blue gray body panels. It's carrying an assault stein shettier rifle manufactured by Dies. It's highly likely the FOIL also sports a good deal of Dies parts as well.

The Latin text under the FOIL is actually on the FOIL, placed there by the Pilot and Faedai, it say's, "Reality is an illusion. Awaken from the dream." I also should note the name Aetarius was coined by :icongenocidalpenguin: as a play of Aquarius. He thought the FOIL's legs had a bell bottom vibe so the name kinda spawned from there :) Also will note there are GenoPeng/Vulne FOIL collabs coming soon ;)

Blown up light boxed pencil thumb with digital inks clean up. Colors in Photoshop CS3. Background "star field" is a copyright free image and the only element I didn't draw.

More work to come...

Aye, a bit :) The 5th gen FOILs are a bit more stripped down and utilitarian in approach then the older more artisan driven designs. They still have visual flourishes, like the design on it's head, but over look more industrial in aesthetics.

My thanks, I really appreciate that as I do work hard to make them as unique as possible. Not an easy thing to do when everything has been done but we always work for it.

Glad to hear your pops is doing better. Family first, of course. He's lucky you're looking out for him so diligently.

I'm always ready and eager for more TKP action! :eager:
Last time I was so captivated by a mech-infused saga, the name Masamune Shirow was on the front cover. ;)

Aye, he seems to be on the path of recovering with no problems (providing he continues to behave).

There is a lot of TKP coming this year, a LOT. My thanks always for the support and kind words. Shirow, that's a pretty high honor. I grew up on Appleseed and I suppose, TKP was always hovering in that kind of classic old school territory he occupied that nobody seems to be covering these days really. I find that a shame as there's a richness to that feel that can continue to be expanded and explored. Expect it from us as we will ;)

I really love the blue and grey on Aetarius; the hint of brown is also a nice touch.

As always, kick ass design! :thumbsup:

My thanks James :) Yeah the paints on this one kinda evolved as I went and the blues/blue grays came out rather nice.

Love the head unit as well as the legs!
the body could use a bit more revamping seeing how the whole theme of the design is "thin"

other than that good work :thumbsup:

VulnePro Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2010  Professional Filmographer
My thanks though it was never stated with any specificity a theme of "thin" is the focus of the design or the intent. Light or fast strike wouldn't immediately equate to thin so I think he's doing OK having a more solid torso configuration. I could put him on a Wheat thins diet for bots though if that might help ;)

Cheers!
