And one more updated Theos image art piece, this time a more significant face lift. I was recently invited by
to be part of her favorite artists gallery for Ballistic Publishing's pending D'artiste Character Design book.
Due to have so little time, because I had been taking care of my Father, I had to resort to already completed work. I thought it would be fun to revisit this piece again so this is what resulted. The big change is the hue is now a more greenish sodium vapor tint and the wall has a wallpaper Photoshop texture pattern applied to make the BG more interesting. The colors were tweaked a bit throughout and the sendai got some punchier shadows. Was fun to experiment on this one as there will be things I plan to try again for sure.
The original piece can be found here: [link]
So far the FOILs have gotten a lot of love in this gallery (and more are pending) at the expense of showing more of the sendai, the FOILs much, much smaller kin. Sendai will appear more and more in future postings as their population numbers are rather large in the SOL system.
As the war escalates to alarming proportions on Polemos stability begins to erode on Indus as well. The sendai population, now gaining a spiritual inclination their human owners have abandoned long ago, begin to mobilize politically, and socially for more freedoms. In doing so many turn to violent means as one such revolutionary minded S.A.D.U.S. (Self Aware Defense Utility System) takes the path of blood.
This one is a Jiendel manufactured SADUS with likely multiple brains that may not always agree on who's in charge. Clearly this can lead to problems. The small bio-mechanical fella (this one aprox 5 feet in height) is wielding a Geind Machine Stein Shettier (Stein being rifle variant Shette weapons).
The scene is on Indus, hence Theos ke Basilea as the Indus storyline dovetails into conclusion of the entire arc.
