when u do the cuffs over the armor it looks like the armor is made of plastic.. or leather, something soft. that rubbs the "hardness" of it. other i rlly like this one, the design of the armor is worth to be used as refference. but i think u had your refferences too, looks a bit like the daedric armor from TES games.
