Cute Cats, Robots & Ultra-Violence

#0 'Cute Cats, Robots & Ultra-Violence in Neo-Amsterdam'

Hey guys!

This is the first of 12 images created for my new portfolio project: 'Cute Cats, Robots & Ultra-Violence in Neo-Amsterdam' in which I hope to give you a glimpse of what a post-apocalyptic Amsterdam will look and (perhaps more importantly) feel like, filled with robots, ultra-violence and of course, cute cats. 

I basically thought of the things I like the most and wanted to put that all into one project, which can turn out to be pretty cool.. or a total disaster.

I hope you guys will like it! Now I'm going to get back to work, got a shitload to do for the next one, haha.

Cigarette Break

I'm working on a new portfolio, from which I'll start posting some stuff in the upcoming weeks.
This was just a fun thing to do in between, that started as a lunchtime drawing.

I did some quick lighting tests and some colour variations, which you can view on my Artstation:

Birth of a Replicant

Challenge 5 for the Brainstorm group! The theme was Blade Runner.  

I thought it was interesting that the replicants in the film were made out of organic substance and I thought it would be fun to imagine how they would be build. 

I pictured a kind of 3D printer, where there's a flat surface that slowly goes up while organic matter is released into the basin by the 6 faucets on the edges. The organic matter (DNA) moves through the liquid to find its correct position and gets 'glued' to the rest of the body by the laser around the edge of the table. This process would continue and the replicant would slowly emerge from the liquid, like a print from a SLA 3D printer. 

I tried adding movable parts to the machine so it would feel alive when active, like the Voight-Kampff machine while monitoring.

Just a little bit further..

Challenge 3 for the Brainstorm Facebook group! The challenge was to combine any kind of vehicle with scrap to either kill or capture zombies. 

I had the idea of this street kid that uses his bike to capture zombies. He took a winch from an old pickup and connected it to his bike, connecting the rotating part to the back wheel of his bike. When the zombie walks into the trap, he accelerates and the winch starts rotating, 'reeling' the zombie in. At this point the kid turns on the battery attached to the gasoline tank, and currency runs through the two cables connected to the winch and stuns/electrocutes the zombie. This way he can transport them somewhat safely. 

I figured the bike is his most valuable possession so he takes care of it. No metal plates stuck to the sides, because he needs the bike to be agile and responsive. If he would get caught he'd probably be fucked anyway :P. 

I tried to make the zombies 'Last Of Us-ish', because I fucking love that game and I'm just a fanboy, basically. Usually not that into zombie stuff (except for 28 Days Layer), but this concept actually made sense in a way. 

Anyway this was super fun to work on! On to the next!

Kamikaze Ptero-Unit

Made for the awesome Brainstorm Facebook group.
The challenge was to combine fossil bone with a military character. 
Kamikaze Ptero-Unit
Strapped with comp B and a light machine gun (lightly based off of the Japanese Type 97 machine gun), this Japanese WW2 ‘pilot’ is about to take his first and last flight.
The idea is that his arms interlock with each other, making the gun complete and ready to fire. One arm holds the ammunition, the other the actual gun. Once the two lock and the locks of the wings connect with the suit & boots, the wings will open and the pilot can fly.

However, once locked, the suit will stay locked, trapping the pilot into his own suit and making the mission his only option.

I keep trying to push the style I'm experimenting with lately and having an shitload of fun while doing it.
