Multiple Brainz by VulnePro Multiple Brainz by VulnePro
"Oh hai guys! I haz the multiple brainz and voices in mai head... don't make the BimBlue Master mad.

You won't like the Master mad."

Here we have just another of the random sendai proletariat that inhabits the TKP universe. This little fella (about 4 feet tall) could be a citizen of Indus or Polemos but we'll assume Indus for the sake of argument. Why? Well, for starters violent internal multiple brain conflicts are more an Indus problem then Polemon. As with FOILs often sendai are designed by artisan guilds or individual design specialists. Often mad experimentation occurs (for better or worse) and with little regulation on Indus things can get out of hand. Putting several brains into a sendai with conflicting agendas has been known to happen simply "just to see what will happen". As such issues of sendai psychology are often exasperated by the added problem of Indus-widespread human bigotry toward their bio-mechanical creations (though there are places of exception). Breaking points are often breached and the path of blood wake follows... people die.

Is this particular guy stable or not? Well, he seems well enough off sporting his very casual threads but time will tell what the future holds for this creature. Suppose that's a given for us all.

This was a scanned pencil thumb blown up in CS3 then converted to a grayscale paint in PainterX and CS3. Colors were added following along with several textures (the simulated catalin marbling texture was hand painted by me. I've created many for catalin and bakelite texture simulation).

Another piece, of many to come, I have lying around I need to wrap or simply get around to posting. This particular technique I had planned to do a series of so this guy is the first. Stay tuned ;)

there is something about a clearly robotic humanoid character wearing clothing. their sentient robots with no real needs to wear clothes like to cover themselves or keep warm (maybe they need pockets but i digress) but yet they wear them none the less for whatever reason they have. i honestly wish people explored this more in most media's

My thanks Mark, glad you dig the little fella :) There will be more like this one eventually... when I can find the time to get to them.

Cheers!

Really interesting design. I especially like the small face.
It reminds me a bit of Evangelion.

O man, I love the surface treatment of the exposed body parts here (is anybody else thinking marbled bowling ball??) and the subtle texture in the garments--the jacket especially puts me in mind of faux shark skin, along the lines of some of the weirder recent synthetic "rubberized" (silicone??) fabrics.

Stunning image and brilliant concept(s), as always!

Huge thanks Thomas and good to see you drop in, it's been awhile (well since I could post with any frequency). 

Indeed marbled bowling ball works as well regarding that texture. My inspiration was old art deco bakelite and catalin radios though: 

catalinradio.com/

www.decoradios.com/bakelite/ba…

... which ultimately has the same aesthetic. That said the actual surface of this guy would actually be something more like a bowling ball as to strength (bakelite and catalin are brittle) so you're pretty much on the money anyway :) The jacket would most certainly be something synthetic to simulate leather or... something like sharkskin. Works either way. The back of the head is covered with a slick PVC-like material as well so there's kinda a texture orgy going on. There will be more of these guys as I can get to them ;)

Keep belting out that fantastically unique work you do as well!

Best!
