-- WE ARE THE NEW FLESH -- by RBillustrations -- WE ARE THE NEW FLESH -- by RBillustrations
Well another halloween-ish piece.....well not really....had this idea in my head for quite some time.

Oui, oui this llustration is based on the 1966 version of Doctor Who's Cybermen.....boo! (scared ya?)

Anywoos....weirdly the idea for this piece sprung up whilst listening a Fear Factory...can't remember which song. :/

So yeah I was originally wanted to illustrated the 80s version of the Cybermen with all of them lined military style, but in the end I wanted to do something sick with the 1966 William Hartnell version.

Basically I wanted to have something more of a plastic mask to reveal some dead flesh....which kinda didn't turn out the way I wanted but I am happy with this version.

So errumm yeah....enjoy!

Illustrated with the magic of pencil and pens.

Coloured on Photoshop CS3

I've always had a soft spot for this design. Any hint that the Cybermen used to be humanoid makes them much scarier.

Good god, that's terrifying. Combine these with the voices from "Tomb of the Cybermen" and debulkify the chest and you'd pretty much have the ultimate Cyber-model.

this is far scarier than any cyberman that came after them, the other ones where "we are robots with brains in a jar" where as these where "we were once human, but now we have body's made of metal" you can still see that they where once something living. very well done

This looks similar to Peter McKinstry's concept, was it inspired at all by it?
