NEO JAPAN 2202 - KIKAI YOHEI by johnsonting NEO JAPAN 2202 - KIKAI YOHEI by johnsonting
A new piece for Neo Japan, trying to keep things a little more rough, i was spending too much time on the details so was planning to do a few quick ones to flesh out ideas first, will probably polish this afterwards. 

Long story short:
"One of Japan's current income are from wars throughout the globe, throughout the years several companies has focused on war economy. Many countries has seek loans from Japan to purchase these "Mechanical Mercenaries" to aid them in their war, "cheap, durable and deadly". A Kikai Yohei has an average lifespan of 15 years, they can also be easily modified to sustain themselves in different environments. However, these drones are a lot less refined as Japan's own AI drones, Kikai Yohei are not compatible with AI due to the cost and they can only be controlled by a human operator. "

Btw i have a cghub acc now! Help me give it some love! :D

Ohhh OK just saw the stock photo thing in the description (I should have read it first!)

The idea and story behind this are great. I love the level of realism in these images!
Hey! I absolutely love your art and this entire series of Neo Japan!

I had a couple questions though, maybe I could PM you later. 
1) Is this artwork for anything specific like a game, movie, ect. or just for you personally.
2) I've been thinking strongly about making a large Sci Fi-ish MOD for the game ARMA 3, maybe you've heard of it, and I would absolutely LOVE to model some of the units/outfits/gear from your art here. If you don;t get back to me with any sort of answer i'l try to PM you. 

Also this isn't happening for sure yet but I've been thinking hard about it. AND I can assure you that you would get full credit for any deigned used/inspired by. :)
