It's based off an existing design. It's a SAFS (Super Armored Fighting suit) from Maschinen Krieger. The stubby Legs are a key design element, look them up and you'll see why I went with that look. The booster pod feet aren't the actual feet. The feet are inside those pods (think of them as booster boots).
Also, these suits lack "heads", so another design element out of necessity. I suppose I could have added some sort of decal on the face, but adding decals to rounded surfaces isn't fun to do, and I prefer the clean look.
A very interesting design to be sure. Unusual, but it has a good flow to it. However it needs description. There is too much that goes unexplained. ^Blub^

I feel like this would look a lot better if it were taller. everything above the feet looks fine, and I think actual feet would look good. the grey feet area looks like what would have been knees. I like some of your things but I feel like I would have liked this a lot if it were taller, no 'feetsters', and maybe had a different kind of head, a decal on the face might make that stand out more.
