Fan art Shardplate concept. Drawn by quargon for his university portfolio.

Solid! Remember that there are no cloth or chain on Shardplate, it just breaks down into smaller interlocking plates at the joints, and you could be showing that here in the gaps at the knees (everyplace else looks covered). The visors on the helmets are kinda high for eye-level, and Shardblades are generally larger than normal swords, and often take on some exaggerated features (think typical anime BFS, and then be creative with it).

... I like the overall tones of the metal, but not the glows (they need brighter cores, I think).

Good start though, and one of the better Plate interpretations I've seen. Nice!
