Medieval Aquaman Teaser 2 by Azmal Medieval Aquaman Teaser 2 by Azmal
To man peck conch or not to man peck conch, that is the question. While tooled nicely we must ask, does the shape appear masculine or does it look like a mermaid bra shell. I tooled the rest of the breast area behind it since I knew a spiral was a risky shape and I wont really know for sure until its all colored and into final assembly. It's of course designed to look like a cool chambered nautilus shell in a roughly stylized pectoral shape.

So anyway, I ask you fine folks, as it is for now, what's your first impression?

Great work!
It is definitely too feminine.  If you were to say continue the pattern in a greater area or utilize a smaller shell it would work but at that size in that position with what you have framing it, it is feminine.

You are a wizard with leather sir, I look forward to seeing more of your work on here!

Bravo!

It is hard to tell at this angle, maybe, a front shot?

Normally I would agree, the conch might be too feminine, however the placement is decent enough I think it would just add. There are armor sets with pieces that come down pretty far like that, buuuut they're usually tying in the shoulders. couldn't say for sure until the rest of its done, but I like it. Its not like they're coning out from the chest.

I agree....make it into pauldrons. too femme. I gotta say....your imagination is....well....awe inspiring! to even come up this idea is amazing. how long did it take to design it? from one leather worker to another i am in awe. fantastic tooling and i love the use of embossing to make it stand out.

I think it looks awsome! And I love the look of the natural leather. I would be a little scared to color something like that XD

I agree with an earlier statement, working it into the pauldron would be more beneficial and less feminine
