Proletarian Sendai 02 by VulnePro Proletarian Sendai 02 by VulnePro
Another pair of rank & file sendai of the proletariat just lounging about on a smoke break apparently.

Indeed sendai keenly partake in filling their lungs with carcinogens. These are not the familiar tobacco, of today, but more of a spiced incense-like concoction that sendai have grown fond of. The smokes are called lidos (lyedos) or, simply smokes, being they're not actually cigarettes in the classic sense. Naturally this also adds to the classic film noir sensibilities 'Whispers of the Deep' will have.

The fellow on the left is a Täppco model sendai. Täppco are known for their deco style toaster or radio head type sendai. This example clearly follows suit, though he has a very radiator kinda vibe going on too. Other Täppco guys can be seen here:

The sendai on the right... he looks like a sneaky sneak, with his stylish feature obscuring hoodie.

More to come...

Now this I like :) The design has the playful energy of the likes masters like Shirow pull off in Appleseed. Nice!

Very kind words indeed and flattering comparison. I grew up with manga like Appleseed and Akira (in fact I was collecting them when they first went into publication here, late 80s-early 90s) as inspirations so, to a degree, my work owes a debt to them. Though TKP is not Appleseed I think a lot of fans of Shirow's work will dig much of what we have planned because the Theos project does have some old school flavor to it for sure. Thanks!

What ya lookin at, the sendai rasped at me.
Am looking for a girl, I said. The sendai, Little mickie, took a drag from his smoke while the neon lights from the gin joint across the street flashed red and blue on his shiny dented metal head.

"I don't do that stuff no more officer", he droned. "I am not a cop and I can make it worth your while", I said, showing the hologram of the missing heiress. Could see the glow in Little Mickie's eyes get brighter, the prospect of extra credits got his attention.

The rain just kept coming down, this town is cursed, its been raining ever since the planet settled in orbit. I waited while the sendai decided whether to help me or not, while the cold rain dripped off his head and ice water slowly found its way through the gaps in my raincoat.

Looks great.

Sendai are not the kind of guy you want to run into in a dark alleyway if you've been bad to them. They strike me as the "united minority" kind of beings. Very nice job on the backstory!

Indeed some of them would be very bad to run into in a dark alley. You're impression is pretty close to what they are and my thanks for the comments and kind words :)
