Backstory: A super secret government project allowed experimentation on convicts. These criminals were the worst offending in history. The governments aim was to erase the memory of these felons and turn them into killing machines for the battlefield. They thought they could control the felons rage and killing ability and harness it for war. They were wrong. One of the most notorious serial killers in the country was the first and last to be experimented on. His right arm was amputated to allow for a robotic crushing arm equipped with the up-to-date laser rifle technology. His other bodyparts were cut off then sewn back together to make them more enhanced. One night during an important surgical procedure to re-wire his brain their was a lightning storm which caused the equipment sustaining Diesels augmentated body to come alive. He awoke like Frankensteins monster in a fit of rage and killed all the medical staff and escaped from the maximum security facility into a desolate junkyard. He suffers from amnesia but everyday recounters bits of information about who he was. He vows to seek revenge on the people who made him into the monster he is today.

This is cool i like the concept.That's a good sketch 2..welcome and have fun
This entry is very interesting for it will need the combination of great ZBrush sculpt and Hard surface fun. So will he be a super villain or Super hero as his memory's starting to come back in pieces and know he's actually a killer?
Great man..... Nice sketch and concept.... Just make sure the character has been balanced, May be I'm wrong...
Cause the right arm has heavy weight ....

I like your drawing, but the name is really throwing me. I expected some kind of hippie.
Awesome character design! The initial pose is very strong as well.
nice concept design man .really strong charater
Fantastic sketch, great character, should be really fun to model. But I don't really get the name ether?
I appreciate everyone's fast replies.
SolidSnakexxx: I guess he kind of would be an anti-hero like Venom. However, before he was transformed into this current monstrosity he was a notorious serial killer so I guess karma has come back to haunt him now. But I would still classify him as a villain. I will also try to build everything in zbrush and make his mechanical arm more organic like. I have never used zspheres before but this is a good opportunity to try it out. However, I will probably have to resort to building some hard surface stuff in an external 3d package. But we'll see how it goes.
sendhilv: The right arm is larger however, most of the right side of his body will be comprised of hydraulics and stuff like that to allow him to lift his arm. It supposed to look top heavy, sort of like Hellboy's arm. But I do agree that it will be tricky to get the pose right in order to make it look convincing.
Codeman, Harmonic: As for the name, I kinda see what you mean, but I always had the idea of a punk-like looking character with fuel exhausts in place of a mohawk and for some reason I thought pothead would be a cool name. Don't ask me why, I must have been drunk. Can always change it later I guess.
Really cool concept, I'm looking forward to seeing this one fleshed out!
Awesome sketch/pose Ben.
Keep it up !
Wow... one of the best arts I´ve seen till now...
Woah! that's one scary dude!!!
