Biohazard Combat Armour
In 2009 i was approached by two film students from the Leeds Metropolitan University. They asked me to design & create three suits of futuristic military armour for their short film "Biohazard". I sculpted the helmet & torso with clay & these were moulded with silicone & cast out in fibreglass. The undersuit is customised motorcycle body armour.
At first i sculpted a highly detailed helmet which i then decided didn't really suit the rest of the armour design so i sculpted a more simplified & imposing helmet.
The finished torso armour sculpt & the final suit of armour completed with customised motorcycle body armour. The rifle was designed by Dan Martin & built by Dynamo.
Some test footage i shot of the suit nearing completion.
