Cinematic Spaces: Research - Dead Space Trilogy

Isaac Clarke's Space Suits

The Dead Space trilogy is a third-person shooter survival horror video game set in the very distant future within Space. Dead Space 2 is the only game I have played and completed, but the influence from Dead Space covers all three of the games.

The space suits seem to be entirely made out of a super strong, flexible metal which allows oxygenated air to enter the suit despite the surrounding environments.

Even though they are far from any traditional diving suit, they still could be seen underwater. What I really like about the suits is the glowing lights from the front facing part of the helmet and showing the players health on the back. I have been thinking about changing the original '20'000 Leagues Under The Sea' content to a more futuristic approach, however its making the idea work that will matter once I begin my digital paintings.

EA's character concept showing the build of a basic space suit's construction is a great example of how intricate the suit is. I would create my interpretation with a much more simplistic style as my aim is to have the audience look at other objects within my scenes.
