Biomech Engineer (30min. spitpaint)

To be honest I wasn't fully sure how I wanted to go about this, I did know I wanted some kind of heavy robotics playing on top of a bioorganic body of some kind, at least a torso as in this case. Colors came about kind of spontaneously, I basically did big fills and gradients on an overlay layer then duplicated that layer and inverted it, playing around with this method a few more times. I often will 'get there' in some random, haphazard fashion, it's not the most efficient but I guess Threw on an overlay layer of a full color fill and dropped the opacity a bit, just to unify the colors a little more.

It kind of reminds me old SNES games I used to play. Or the RPG maker stuff people used in their games. Live-A-Live enemies kind of if you've ever seen one.
