I'm planning on beginning my construction of a set of armor later this summer and I've doodled out about half a dozen crude diagrams for plates and I've not been happy with any of them so far. So I come here asking if anyone has any photos or sketches of some armor they've made that I could look at for inspiration I would appreciate it.
I'm primarily wanting to keep the distinctive look of the chest armor, with the separated pectrorals, and the diamond plate in the center, but I'm wanting to go for a heavier look. Bigger plates, more coverage. And try as I might, I'm coming up with the equivalent of writers block and just can't seem to get anything down on paper that I'd like to pursue. I'm not looking to copy, or steal anyone's patterns but I may borrow elements if I see something I like, but It will be distinctly my own creation that I actually end up building.
Thanks for anyone that replies.
