Don't Talk to the Cyborg by AlexORio Don't Talk to the Cyborg by AlexORio
... he's an asshole.

Contest: Steampunk Portrait…
My first concept for Opium Blue, featuring my character Brutus. Back when Brutus had a "normal" life, he worked as a spy for the company Forge. However, as soon as the intergalactic economy collapsed, his company tried to have him killed. Barely escaping his home planet with his best friend Dr. Ashley Specel, they began to make their way in the universe as opium dealers, especially after having lost contact with their families for many years. Brutus lost his limbs after one of his former partners, Sonrisa, went postal on him and shot out the joints to his arms and legs. Luckily, they managed to find a cybornetic mechanic that gave him new limbs. However, don't expect him to be talking about his past anytime soon.
Part of the piece is mostly just figuring out how his arms are going to look, but I also wanted to portray the character alone and numb. When he's with his friend, the good doctor, he helps Brutus to forget the pass. But when Ashley isn't around, it's up to the nearest bottle of liquor to keep him from remembering.
The tools I used were several drawing pencils, a pen, and finally Photoshop and PaintTool SAI.
Watch me make this here:
