This image was my very first design on the first day of working on Elysium. Man the first 6 months of that project are without a doubt my favourite time as a designer. Each day or week the brief would be something like: 'MS 13 style gangster with robotic arms to replace those lost in a car accident', or 'brutal big prototype military synthetic fighting unit', or 'sexy robot lingerie model'... I shit you not. And I got paid too! If you check out the build website for my car project then those choice bits of mechanical hardware were paid for by drawing robots. Barely!
One of this fulla's arms is like a couple big links of a gold chain, and his hand can make hardcore intricate gang signs. He's being all tough-guy cool and exhaling the smoke through a couple ports in his neck that are controlled by his thoughts. Oh, that's an animated dog snarl tattoo too. Mean as cuz!
I hope to post heaps more concept art from the film once we get clearance, get ready for lots of nerdy explanations about how the designs work.
This image is all over the internet, so hopefully it's cool to post here.
