    The concept looks awsome Adiagon.

    My 'two cents' below:

    WINGS: I like 'D', because they look huge and mean. BUT, they look too big and clunky. I also like 'B', they look PUFFY and protective. BUT, they look to SOFT and VEGAS like- . However, my favorite is... 'C', these look to be a combination of the two I just mentioned, but with the right balance of the two. I just looked over the wings again, I still like 'C' but, 'I THINK' if you give them the 'sharp' look of 'D' (more boney or mechanical like) instead of regular feathers???

    HELMET GUARD:... don't use one and instead, work on the helmet it self i.e. perhaps COMBINE the GUARD with the HELMET?? Just, that thing sticking up behind his head looks out of place. Or if you go with something like the 'Tranformer' looking characters from the link SLOCIK posted: http://www.autodestruct.com/ds_angelic.htm (scroll down when you get there, you will see what I am talking about), but, using your OWN style, that might also work??

    SHOULDER GUARD: 'F" for sure. It's looks POWERFUL and I like the 'squared' look of the armour. Seems to me all the other ones of been done a million times. You seem to have a perfect balace between regular armour and that IRON MAN look (but don't do the Iran Man look, as that look has been over done as well). Work with what you have on 'F'. I also really like that 'stylized' CROSS you have on his chest... that's a keeper!

    CHEST PLATE: Either 'B' or 'G' (without the spikes on the shoulders) look to be good starting points.

    HIP GUARD: I think 'A' with a groin gaurd in front (like 'D' has) would look very cool. But, 'H' with a groin guard would look just as cool. Perhaps you can put a stylized cross on the groin guard or some strange writing/scripture/design on the guard??

    BOOTS: A combination of 'D' and 'F', again, would be a great starting point. HOWEVER, keep the THICK/HEAVY look of 'H' (don't make them look 'light/thin'). This 'I' think would compliment the overall look of the suit with the wings.

    GAUNTLET: You didn't mention it, but, I like the one you have on him in the big image (the cross from the hand to the elbow)... cool.

    Remember, these comments are just MY two cents. I like where your going with this one (the 'spaniard' look is cool, just give it a 'modern/high tech' look).

    I will keep an eye your post and wish you the best of luck!

    Adiagon, I like what you have started here. My very first thought was the same as the first poster in that it looks like Tyrael. Especially in the gaming world, he is a very identifiable character, and certainly cool. My main piece of advice then before you get too far would be to think on that a bit and see how you can diversify it and make it your own a bit more so that that isn't the first impression everyone will get upon looking at it.

    You don't want them to see something that already exists (and certainly not think that you drew too heavily on it as inspiration), you want them to see YOUR artwork.

    See how you can stretch things a bit more in your own direction and best of luck to you!
