Paw Fashion 23: 'Nova' boot by Doran-Eirok Paw Fashion 23: 'Nova' boot by Doran-Eirok
This is the last pawboot design I'm doing, at least for now. The Project has been a lot of fun but I'm burned out! Nothing says I won't come back with more in the future, but I like to think I've got a fairly complete lineup now. I'd like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who found my art through this project and showed your appreciation with watches or faves or helpful comments. :) You're all awesome.

I thought it'd be fun to end on something a bit extravagant and impressive, so here's another futuristic space boot. While the Arcos boot ([link]) took some of its inspiration from Spartan armor in the Halo universe, the Nova armor shown here is slightly more inspired by the armor worn by Sangheili 'Elites' in that franchise. Both designs hail from similar tech levels, where defensive energy shielding or something to that effect results in lots of unnecessary but pretty glowy lines all over everything. At least, that's my excuse. However, the Arcos design was more based on flat planes and sharp angles, while the Nova here is a bit more curvy and organic. Perhaps they originate from different cultures, or are just built on different design principles. Either way, these boots offer full high-tech protection to the paws and legs with both armor and kinetic barriers, while sporting heel spikes and reinforced toeclaws for offense.

Oh my goodness! This might be one of my favorite designs. I love space-armor. The dark metallic look with blue highlights is all kinds of cool.

I am afraid I am unfamiliar with the Drudge!

They're the aliens from the Wii game The Conduit & the Conduit 2. This looks very similar to their armor in the second one.:)

Ahhh okay. :) Cool! As I say I modeled them mostly after the Elites' armor in Halo, but I imagine there are plenty of critters from various fictions like the Drudge with a more organic look that these could work with. ^^

I love the futuristic feel of this boot. The armor and the curves add a very halo like look to it. The under layer is also a nice look as the armor will be allowed to move and flex without issues. You're definitely going to crack some skulls with those boots. I can't wait to see more from you in the future.

Thanks, really glad you like! I'm pleased with how the look of this one came out too. :) At least I've got a pretty full collection now! I don't have any current plans for more as yet but I've had enough fun with these that more may surface now and then. ^^

Yeah your collection is pretty good. You have a real knack for drawing paws. I get the feeling that you have a bit of a footpaw fetish lol. That's ok, as I have it as well. I still look forward to future designs but for now I will wait.
