New piece for Neo Japan! 

"Invisible Ops aka Yurei aka Phantoms/Ghost, is a a project funded by the Royal Police, a project that focuses on producing stealth units, equipped with cloak-capable fabrics and often covered in dark colors. They are built to specialize in stealth missions. The units are controlled using a hive system, by an A.I called Tsuki, which is one of the oldest and the earlier model of A.I developed, this enables the unit to operate with extreme accuracy, precision and synchronization, much efficient that its human counterpart. "

Here you can see an early experimentation and prototype version of the Yurei in a field test, with retractable active camo-tape from its head. 

Looking forward to the final version of these guys!
Edit: The tapes are of course for now, are for aesthetic purposes, I wanted to show the bot more than the tape right now, so this wont be as practical in the final version, i can assure you that at least :D
Edit 2: Looking for ideas for a next tutorial, it'd be great if you can let me know your thoughts or any ideas! :D
Tutorial Ideas, anyone?Hey guys! Been awhile since I've updated my journal, here are some status updates:
The book for Neo Japan 2202 is on hold for now, due to personal reasons and I didn't want to rush it out, and I'm working on another book right now so I gotta make time for that first. :D The book will be announced in a couple of months time, it's gonna be a collaboration with a lot of great artists so hang tight!
I'll drop anymore updates about the book if there's any, so for now I'm gonna keep posting snippets of Neo Japan from time to time. 
So main topic:
Thank you guys so much for the views! You guys are the best :D I've been reading the comments and sorry I havent gotten to reply them, i'll do so soon! Rushing some projects recently so be kind D:
Anyways, gonna do a tutorial but I figure it's best if you guys can let me know what your thoughts are, what your questions are and what sort of tutorial you would like to see, let me know in the comments! For me to get some ideas and s

For this piece I use a photo from the Australian Navy Divers as a base :D The series of photos are amazing!…

Amazing as always! As for a tutorial, one on your process and how you go about deciding what to paint and what to use photos for would be amazing!
