Some armor design for a possible story project (optionnaly a comic strip, of course!) explaining the events passing just before Jak II: the installation of Praxis in power and its evolution (show his sincerity in his infancy, and gradually become the dictator we know in games), battles against the Metal Heads (including the one of the Dead Town), the developments of the different characters, including Ashelin, Erol and Torn who would be the main characters, at least central figures.
• Ashelin, due to her special position being Baron's daughter, is captain of the Special Forces (including the search of the Tomb of Mar ... even if for her it's just a legend)
The story would show further her relationship with her father who is quite complex, and the group she forms with the Supreme Commander orn (and his protégé, Erol)

• Erol, in this story, is a simple Krimzon Guard soldier, then he will rise in rank. Praxis put him under the tutelage of his most loyal soldier: Torn. The beginnings of their relationship is not very warm, but gradually the two learn to respect each other and form an effective duo in combat.
The story would show the evolution of his personality, how as a simple soldier he became the supreme commander and new right arm of Praxis (cf Jak II), show that he is ready to make any sacrifice to get his goals (he believes them fair and necessarily)

• Torn, who at that time, was the supreme commander of Krimzon Guard Army (the same rank of Erol in Jak II). He is also the right arm of Praxis. He is loyal to his baron and is desperate to what he believes is right and necessary to the victory of Haven City against the Metal Heads.
The story would also show how as Supreme Commander and especially right arm of Praxis, he left his political leader to join the Underground and become one of their chief!

I wanted to give a more realistic side to the uniforms, a little less "cartoon" than in the game, due to the fact that the story would be quite dark ... well it's about war!
Know that for this story, my main inspiration is the series (which I love) Band of Brothers (you can imagine the atmosphere that I'd like to give there)
Cortex, Brio and N.Gin (yeah, I always say N.Gin and not Gin 8V) and an OC of mine (that I will present below), when they were children in their school uniforms of the Academy of Madame Amberley (cf. Twinsanity, remember)
• Neo Cortex: Neo is actually his name (not "Periwinkle" as in CTTR, I do not count the events as "canon") to make a pun with the neocortex.
It is the second and last child of a wealthy family. He lives with his father, his mother and his older brother, Archie Cortex (admire this pun with the archicortex, the same style as Neo Cortex ... proud of me *out*)
But his parents were not very emotional and neglect their child, sometimes they forget they have a second one. Neo is regularly disadvantage compared to his older brother, with whom he doesn't share a very fraternal relationship.
Neo is a math genius, and his parents decide to get rid of ... uh send him! in the prestigious Academy of Mrs. Amberley, school for gifted children (and rich, by the way)
At the Academy, he is in the same class of Nitrus Brio, with who he binds friendship. The two quickly form a group who only the best student (from their point of view) can join them.
Neo is a proud child, extroverted and extravagant, snob, absolutely confident and chief of everybody ... well that's what he believes. It is also very fickle and whiny, but he still has qualities such as loyalty, dynamism and positivism towards everything he does.
• Nitrus Brio: (I apologize for the lack of information on him, I confess that this is the character that inspires me the least)
He's a chemistry genius.
He appreciates Neo for his cynicism, even if it is not uncommon to see the two fighting (Neo continues to estimate himself as the legitimate leader of the group). However, he does not speak so well of the little Nathan Gin, it is quaint and pretty ridiculous by his unattractive physic.
Nitrus is more introverted than Neo, he works more in the shadows, but he is generally the true brain of the group who finds the best ideas ... and does them.
• Nathan Gin: I called our famous N.Gin "Nathan", a nod to another character of Naughty Dog, Nathan Drake (Uncharted)
One year younger than Neo and Nitrus, he is in the same class of Cornelia (my OC). He is gifted in mechanics: from a young age, he created impressive machines and other gadgets.
At the arrival of Nathan in the Academy, Neo and Nitrus were not kind with him, not hiding their contempt for this funny little boy. But seeing the potential of Nathan over his gift for mechanics, Neo is more interested in him (to the chagrin of Nitrus) and convinces him to integrate their group of "Best of the Academy" (as I said, in their point of view), Nathan will join them with pride. Even Nitrus, after some time, admit that Nathan deserves his place in their group.
Nathan is a shy child, introverted, stanchion (that's twice in a short lapse of time I made a bollard ginger child seg0lene.deviantart.com/art/Jn... 8V), unsure of himself, often the goat emissary of others, but also short-tempered, loyal to his true friends and volunteer in projects.
• Cornelia Close (OC): Cornelia Close, also called C.Close ... notice now a pun for "cyclosis" (well, in English the pun works a little less, but I think it is understandable)
She's in the same class of Nathan Gin. She is the rival of Neo. Her field is biology. She had taken a liken to Nathan and the two quickly become friends and form their own group, and rivals of Neo and Nitrus. Neo and Nitrus sought by all means to ridicule these two newcomers.
But a combination of circumstances, the four young people will join their knowledge in a common goal. Seeing the effectiveness of the group, they decided to stay together. Each with its own domain: Neo is good at mathematics, chemistry for Nitrus , Nathan for mechanics and Cornelia for biology. Uniting their knowledge, they are undertaking many projects, one of the most important: to createf a great army of animals, including the Evolvo-Ray.
Cornelia is bold, intelligent, but more calm that the three boys: she is in constant conflict with Neo who wants to remain the leader of the band, although Nitrus and Nathan agree to prefer Cornelia. She is also hot-tempered, proud, outgoing, insatiable ... in short, the perfect alter ego of Neo (even if both categorically deny this point)
Cornelia is none other than Nina's mother. And if you remember, for my part, Neo Cortex is Nina's father (thank you Twinsanity > 8C) So the two hate each other at first, but in the end ... well you understand UuU
I made sure Nina looks like her mother (physically) (yeah, the face of Cornelia was inspired by Nina) except for hair, she holds that from her father (so Neo)
Cornelia is blond and has green eyes: this is not trivial, because she shares these features with another character of Crash Bandicoot series... a clue? The nickname that gave others to Cornelia was "Coco" (I develop this point in a future drawing)
Sorry for the lengthy description, I wanted to make clear these points on each character and so share you some of my headcanons about this series that has rocked my childhood.
I imagine a series with Tim Burton style with these four there, recounting their adventures during their studies at the Academy!
