Dark Nova: Faolchu Powered Armour by Breandan-OCiarrai Dark Nova: Faolchu Powered Armour by Breandan-OCiarrai
EDIT: IMPORTANT NOTICE!
We originally purchased this as part of a block of pre-existing art by other designers, and did not design this or a couple of the other designs going into Fortune and Glory. This was done because :iconjepray: - as may of you know- suffered a severe head injury in January, coded twice (i.e., died) in the ER and on the operating table, and is still in hospice recovery unable to do most of the work he used to. He has managed to draw a handful of pieces since he's been in rehab, but cannot keep up with the backlog of art we have to put in to meet our deadline in three weeks. This was one of those designs. So, for those who have been pointing to the original design on :iconmestophales: gallery or elsewhere and claiming we are "ripping it off", be aware that 1) we are using it with his full permission, blessing and giving credit for the design, 2) it was never claimed that it was an original design of ours, and 3) for those who point to similarities between this and the Elite armour from Halo, there's a reason- the original artist who designed this went on to work for Bungie. 'nuff said.

Now, originally I was going to drop this from the game because of all of the complaining, but at :iconmestophales: 's urging I am reconsidering. I would still like to hear from my watchers out there, however.

it is a hell of a design, i always thought of a elite mixed with a hunter. though that might be why i like it so much

Well, long story short- bought the image through a stock image company for use in the game, modded it out from 3D to 2D to fit the manual better, only to find out that the stock image company had NOT secured the permission of the original artist. So, contacted him, he was cool with our using it, pissed at the company for ripping him off, and things moved on from there until the similarities were pointed out between the armour an some form of Elite armour from Halo. Not identical, mind you, but close enough to be problematic. So, scrapped plans for using it, ponied up even more money and commissioned artwork to OUR specs as opposed to using someone's second-handers.

Blimey what a bummer - can always work from it and make your own.
