Rifts Shadow Boy Power Armor by ChuckWalton Rifts Shadow Boy Power Armor by ChuckWalton
Hot off the black market literally, this is a peak of one of the illustrations I did for Rifts Black Market which is published by Palladiumbooks.

Based off the powerful iconic Glitterboy design, but retooled as a fast paced hopper assault power armor.

more to come...

Maybe it's the darkness, but this one does really stand out from the other GB variants.  It looks fantastic.

Looks beastly! Love it and great work! :D But I do say, I like his head and his feet, his feet r bulky and awesome as heck, and also, his head looks like the old knight armored guys during those times when the humans ride on horses with there heavy armor and with there big spears that they used 2 use during there practice times u know what I mean. But nicely done either way. :)

That is one mighty fine addition to the GB archetype. Kevin is lucky to have your talent. I hope the guys at Palladium and RIFTS keeps your creative spark going. Fantastic.

Francois, Why Thank You so much! I am extremely humbled by your compliment and support. I had fun & intriguing challenges working on this GB addition. Alex played a major role in constructive critic for the shadow-chrome painting outcome. I learned & discovered several new techniques doing the painting techniques that I am happy to have added to my hungry (starving) repertoire. I look forward to doing a great deal more for Palladiumbooks & the RIFTS IP. Got a boatload of artwork for Northern Gun coming up soon. As to the creative spark, it's fully ignited and charged for a lifetime.

Cheers to you as well!

At least we keep ourselves alive and trying to learn a bit of everything :lol:. I seldom find time to attend DA but at least I try to stay tuned. As for new creations, they're hidden behind, and they'll be shown later on when it's safe to ;D.

Btw, your "From the Rifts" interview was awesome.

Especially love the re-worked shoulder pieces and the compactness of the design - really suits the hopper kind of look.

WOW,thank You Seothen, Wasn't sure if the fans would like me tampering with the GB icon, but I enjoyed the tweaks. The hopper assault PA I think will be well suited for Black Market sales.

I'd say no worries - the thing I always loved about Rifts was the different vision each artist brought. They all added in their own way, I don't understand the concept of what's 'canon' and what isn't when it comes to people's imagination.
