Hi everyone. I'm working on this character which I plan on modelling and texturing but i'm stuck on the design. It's meant to be an immortal software billionare who lost his soul to technology and haunts the internet, his skin is kept alive but due to the unatural state of his body it grows irregularly. I wanted to try and incorperate some differen horror elements into the design like the creepy black things that absorb power and allow data to flow. My big goal is to trick the subconsious mind into thinking that it's seeing a cyborg when really it's seeing a clever remix of popular horror art, because the immediate reaction to the unknown is often fear.
But it's hard lol i need to keep in mind a healthy balance between a good knowledge of organic and machanic parts AND keep the silloet memorable.
I attatched 2 images, one was a head i made some alterations to in photoshop to try to understand my goal a little better, and the other is a sketch of the character.
