"Brain Storm" Hunts 9 by superadaptoid "Brain Storm" Hunts 9 by superadaptoid
My 1st entry for the 9 Creature Contest:
(Style - Scifi/Mars Attacks)

(SEE 2nd Contest Entry Here: Barbed Widow)

(SEE 3rd Contest Entry Here: Steampunk Monkey)

(SEE 4th Contest Entry Here: THE SOUL STEALER)

The B.R.A.I.N. is the A.I. villain in 9 that "builds machines for war."

I imagined that the B.R.A.I.N. would likely create its own elite force of intelligent, Nazi-like stormtroopers. I call them "Brain Storms."

Brain Storms are sent to hunt down and wipe out humans using poison syringes, vivisection, electrocution, etc. They sadistically capture their victims terrified last moments on vid screens attached to their torsos and relay the footage back to their master. This one was sent out to eliminate nine exclusively. Its mental energy forms a brighter and brighter "9" the closer it gets to its prey.


Tools & inspirations:
Photo-manipulation using PS CS3.

Found objects: Medical skull model, syringe, surgical monitor, scalpel, large specimen jar, bicycle chains and hubs, and colonoscopy camera/light.

(Inspiration and partial photos taken from genius bio-mechanical sculptor, Christopher Conte. Specifically treads from Robotic Needle Injection Machine and head from Biomech Skull)

Head jar used from Steampunk Jars by ~EzraShadowstorm

Hah, this is awesome!
He reminds me of the kickass martians from Mars Attacks =P

Out of all the entries, I think this is my favourite. You put so much detail into it. Good luck :)

For overall composition I have to say this is fantastic =D . You certainly succeeded in giving this pic a dark tone and kudos to you for actually making a background scene. Love how you added the cat beast in there as well. You're in trouble now Nine...
