Jiendel Gavil Kunst Fau FOIL by VulnePro Jiendel Gavil Kunst Fau FOIL by VulnePro
A new full CG Wacom paint Theos Ke Polemos FOIL concept, this machine another by the fictional corporation Jiendel, Gavil line of FOILs. This ones a heavy Cav FOIL and as such has the dual swords on its back. The headcase is fixed and heavily armored but the FOILs actual field of vision is not hampered by this as sensors are hidden all over the machine giving it 360 vision, all FOILs have this. This one's a rather battered and weathered machine with rust stains and chipping on its classel (a form of metalized armored paint) armor overcoat on top of the ceramic body which accounts for the rusting and the brown chips which show the super hardened ceramic underneath. This is essentially mostly a complete piece but I will be going back in and doing a few tweaks including adding a shield, the one I had just wasn't doing it for the design. On the left shoulder is the marking EOS, meaning Eye of SOL which is the forces under the flag of the planet Indus, the SOL sun symbol also on the left leg armor. On the right leg armor we have 7 swords indicating this FOIL has defeated 7 other FOILs in one to one bladed combat or duels of honor. I have a pile more in the works and planned but also a pile of freelance busy so I'll post when I can.

I should note that the quote, "God knows your lonely soul" is from a song, props if you can guess what it's from :D

The FOILs are bio-mechanical so there's an organic entity that is the central living part of the FOIL. The pilots are, always, human and they work, in symbiotic concert, with the faedai (the organic sendai entity that is the FOIL's consciousness) to pilot the FOIL. The faedai, more or less, translates the human pilots combat skills into the piloting of the machine so the more skilled the human pilot is, in say sword combat, the more skilled the FOIL will be.

I've accessed your Theos Ke Polemos site, brilliant!! However, apart from the original designs of the mechas I'd like to know something: what does FOIL actually stand for?

Sorry for the late reply for a simple question here. Yikes O_O There's a lot of comments I simply haven't seen or gotten to yet. I suppose one thing that's nice about the DA updates are when someone comments on a piece I can now see the preceding comment.

FOIL is an acronym for Feadi Omni Icar Leviathan. Glad you enjoyed the site though it's really out of date. We plan to rectify this soon though.

Best!

Yours makes mine pale in comparison. However, I am doing some. So that is an improvement.

Well don't feel you're work pales in the face of others who simply might have more experience, it's all relative to the amount of time and practice you're willing to put into it. What I do isn't something that can't be learned with time and a lot of effort and as much as I may appear to know I'm always learning something new every day :) It's good you're doing your own works, ultimately it'll come down to a lot of practice to get really adept at design and have a level of comfort with it. Don't be afraid to look at ANYTHING for ideas, not just mecha and such. You never know what might spark a cool idea for a shape or form with your designs. Always be looking ;)
