SADUS duo by VulnePro SADUS duo by VulnePro
A return to some color work with this pair of sendai saedus (SADUS) types.

S.A.D.U.S. (self aware defense utility system) as noted in a few previous postings are not the most stable types and this pair is no exception. Clearly they've both been engaged in violence and the path of blood wake. Though, typically, smaller than humans SADUS can be extremely violent and dangerous. Unless you're armed with AP SABOT rounds in your shettier things can get dicey. Best to have a taedus use partner around to deal with these edgy things.

The Gavil fellow, on the left, is a late 4th gen period body style. The one of the right, a 5th gen Jeindel. The designs of sendai can often verge on the absurdly weird and these fall somewhere in that territory. SADUS often verge on the visually strange which has also been criticized to potentially effect their behavioral issues. Even the 5th gen SADUS are prone to erratic behavior so one wonders why? Apparently they forgot their bib when chowing down on the pasta... oh, wait, that's blood. DOH!

These two were actually sitting in the hard drive for awhile now and I finally got round to finishing them off. They were based on the original roughs in these thumbs: [link] You'll see them both in the lower left side. More work pending...

Are they foil sized?

Nope. These guys be, roughly, 4 to 5 feet in height. Most sendai are smaller than a 6 foot human. FOILs are giant combat frames with a sendai and human dual piloting system and they range in the 40-45 foot height with some exceptions.

So these would remind you of scary evil vicious grunts?

I'd like fifty, skip the wrapping and send them over with SMS 420, by Geind. This is, like always great work. And i love the lore of it all. Btw I want only 5th gen, I like the color scheme, and well I gotta ask where is my shipment. :)

Scary-freaky-Wild! Brilliant to make "sexy" elements so twisted and threatening (The "high heels", the "fishnet stockings", the big "hips" and wasp-waist, etc.)! Excellent renderings! Fave'd.
