Armor covers the body in such a way that the covered figure looks like an articulated figure: a puppet or a robot. The designs are so lovely on the original that it would be hard to improve on them, so it is probably best to just to be inspired.
Does anyone know who did the drawing below?
I left off the name when I put this in my file.
If I am going to blog,
I will stop doing that!
A really nice drawing of a man in armor,
I would like to know the artist.
