Final SCAR Pilot Design: This is the model sheet i passed off to the character modelers. The Design was intended to express a combination of pilot and spec-ops soldier that can operate in the vacuum of space to "boots on the ground" combat.

SCAR Maincast Character Study: Once we figured out the casting for Salter and Reyes, I began visualizing the main cast on the deck of the retribution. I took this opportunity to design the pressure suit worn under the pilot fatigues.

SCAR Unit Patch Design: I was going for something aggressive to represent how badass these pilot / spec ops soldiers are. The screaming skull with 2 lighting scythes forming a spade does that well i think.

Magnetic Boots: This is an older design that evolved into a much more simplified version. The original brief called for boot attachments that had an obvious analogue mechanism to indicate magnetism was activated for game design reasons.
