One of the things I love about a lot of cyberpunk artwork is the really immaculate detail you'll see in the character designs. Everything should look cluttered and busy, just like the settings which this genre exists in. With this in mind, I created this all-borged-up fellow with an outfit which is really busy with details. Unused suspenders, a paisly-esque vest, stitched-up kneepads, and a nice pair of boots, on top of all the seemingly extraneous protrusing tubes and knobes of cybernetics. The pose has been called a bit stiff, and I can see that. To my way of thinking, though, it should be. In the all-style and no-substance cyberpunk aesthetic, all of the characters SHOULD look like they're posing artificially!
