    Here's the concept:

    After “The Incident” Humanity decided enough was enough and put sanctions in place to stop all AI research and development. (see “United States of America vs. A.L.I.C.E-bot Mk 3”, cf. 1371.71.04-07)
    This led to the current, controversial method of “brain cleansing”. That is taking a convicted felon from Death Row, performing brain sugery that removes the lobes of the brain that relate to personal memory and knowledge of self. All that the brain retains is its reactive and problem-solving capabilities. The cleansed biped (using the term “human” or “person” is frowned upon) is then grafted to robotics and other machinery as befits the use for it.
    The prime protestors against this practice is the group calling itself the “Dark City Liberators”. They claim that the “Self” is not contained within the brain, but rather in the theoretical construct of the “Soul”. They claim that the brain cleansing and the pitiful semi-life that the cleansed biped is entitled to a horrific torture and will attempt to relieve the bipeds from their miserable semi-existence.
    It is interesting to note that while no studies have found any evidence supporting the Dark City Liberators’ (DCL’s) claims, all of the researchers add variations on the fact that “…the heart-wrenching sadness that emanates from the bipeds, and the accusation in their eyes, are hard to rationalize…”

    @Misleadtomisery:
    Work on your shadows and rendering - IMO the design and anatomy is very nice.

    @Zebzfree
    This kicks ass... would like to see it finished

    Note: I finally got my piece of shit up in the original thread.

    just wanted to apologize both for the unfinishedness of mi piece and especially for the extremely shitty picture I took of it... no real excuse, just overestimated how much time I had to use...

    My faves in order: Romance, Zebzfree and BlackAdam...
