steampunk x mecha x kunoichi = pure fanboyism
Seriously though, this is a commission done for the Belgian games magazine CHIEF.
The subject was "game babe". I wanted to make use of gaming cliches to make it recognizable so I made a couple of different concept sketches, amongst them: medieval chick with giant blade, babe with bionic arm (all kinds of gameplay elements possible) and dual gun wielding chick in uniform (kaching).
I couldn't decide so I decided to do the worst thing you can do in such a case and that was to just combine everything ^^.
She actually had a WWII uniform, but it lost along the way to the way of the kunoichi.
The magazine is in the racks now in the Benelux, if you pick it up you'll also find a picture of me getting intimate with some... thing.
