Virus Redesigned by darth-biomech Virus Redesigned by darth-biomech
Due being part of my PERSONAL project, this deviation works under different rules from the rest of my gallery:
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

So, after almost half-a-year of pain, here he is. 5.4 million polygons, 7 4k texture sheets, 293 parts in the model and he is wow very rigged, much ready wow for animations and renders.
I must thank :iconturbosolovey: for mentoring me towards right design choices on this one, would look FAR WORSE without his help)



Virus is not a robot, but rather a pure energy-based entity, that located in the chest, that controls the robot. They call themselves "Ziort", and usually not too interested in "earthly" activities besides doing research and science stuff, since dawn of time they involved in only observation of the Universe and gathering knowledge. When they were (accidentally) contacted with Alliance, they took part in it's scientific progress, for they saw vast amounts of knowledge related to baryonic matter world, that they didn't know existed so far (due reasons mentioned below, they stayed away from planets until recently).

But no species are defined by a single trait, and so there also was different entities in Ziort, that become more fascinated and involved in the solid world than average. They didn't restrict themselves to pure research and observation, rather they decided to live a life amongst the fleshy beings. Virus is one of those entities. He decided to pursue the life of assassin, mercenary special operative, finding such experiences very thrilling.
Name is self-chosen after he begun his "new" life (in Ziort there's no names were needed), and reflect his ability to "possess" other electronic rather than his body.

Normally, when Ziort gets in contact with physic-based world outside of proper containment unit (like the one in Virus chest), entity is either violently dissipates, creating powerful and lethal electric storm, if it was in contact with dense gas atmosphere or some non-conductive object, or getting "pulled in" and bonded to that object, if it happens to be made out of metal or having sufficient enough amounts of materials that can store electric charge. That gives them complete control over the object they're become bonded with - including ability to move its parts, even those that do not have any motors, or, if there's a need, metal parts that not even supposed to be flexible. This, through, creates VERY powerful magnetic fields around parts that entity is trying to move, which wreaks havoc to everything metal around the possessed object (power of magnetic fields easily can exceed 5 Tesla, twice as strong as typical MRI magnets), so Ziort tries to control only through already existing actuators and joints, which requires almost no effort to them.
Ziort cannot get out of possessed object, unless somebody destroys it in small enough chunks that cannot hold the entity anymore (that must be done in the outer space or vacuum, or else see the part about violent explosion). Virus is different in that regard - he can "flow" through objects he have firm electric connection with, and do not forcefully confined to the objects he is in contact with, hence the name (the part about violent dissipation is still true, though). Possession of electronic devices wipes any information that was stored on the device. Data is not destroyed however, but instead becomes part of Virus knowledge. Virus can choose to possess electronic more carefully and leave data in it intact, but that requires conscious effort on his part.

And that's concludes this data dump =D I'll do proper character sheet later.
Here is the charsheet, explaining further about Virus:

:iconjoneschj:
Vision: it is unclear that the energy being is controlling the robot based strictly on the image. However the image is so cool most people won't care. The backstory is good, but there is no indication that I can see that the energy being is alive or anything more then an energy source or weapon based on the image.

Originality: Iron Man, Doc Ock, Craing TMNT all come to mind easily based on your concept. I think your work is original for sure, but this is a genre which has been done a lot so there is little room for things without there being some crossover intended or otherwise.

Technique: Brilliantly beautify in execution on every level. High definition to be sure, and textures are likewise incredible. Metallic colors with reflective surfaces and others being matte really give this a lifelike and realistic appearance. Very slight concern: the colors are adequate, but he may blend with lighter background making him harder to spot. A new paint job may be needed for different occasions. The bluish green trim may be a little brighter, yet the blacks of the inner areas should offset any real concerns with blending.

Impact: I've said this multiple times already but WOW! So very cool. The details the ideas, the concepts are all great. Excellent work!

Final Thoughts: This is every bit movie ready to me, enough said.
What do you think?

Because I've seen digital paintings a little like this :) with matte metal texture and scratchs (in fact at first I though it was 2D!)

SO awesome! I almost thought it was from a movie!

So, based on the description, is this basically a Zoni from hell? lol

Man I would really love to make something like that with my printer.. I still kinda wanna get you to do the Djinn powerarmor from battletech.. Just so later I can scale it up bigger and make a costume >>

Would you make some of the files open for people to print? Mostly the frame..

Wow, great rendition and backstory!
I have a similar concept for this kind of entity, just not focused enough to produce something..
very good job indeed :)

Does Virus have a jet pack on his back?  I can't tell from my angle.
