Major Project - Colour Concept

I've coloured this in as it gives a better idea of what is going on. There will be a spine at the back that holds the weight and the artificial muscles give support.

Major Project - Martian Suit

I've made up some ideas for a jump suit type outfit that would be worn by the new race of Martian humans. It's more than a little inspired by Star Trek.

Major Project - Tweaking Anatomy

I've made a couple of changes based on feedback I've had. There are a couple of things that may need some slight adjustment. 

Major Project - Artificial Muscle

With the need for my suit to support the character for strength I looked into artificial muscle. It might work to have them working with the characters existing muscle to aid the additional strength needed to traverse Earth with a higher gravity.

Here's some ideas for an artifial spine and neck/head support.

Major Project - Exoskeleton Influence Map

I've looked at some existing designs of exoskeletons, the big difference with the one that I will make is that it has to support the person for higher gravity. This will mean lots of design changes will need to be concidered. For example there would need to be some kind of neck support to keep the head stable.

Major Project - Anatomy Tweaking

After receiving an email back from Nicola from The Mars Society I've worked into the anatomy a little bit more. I'm reluctant to go too far with it as I don't want to to look to far-fetched .
