Cyber-Vagary by Llortor Cyber-Vagary by Llortor
Mediums used:
*#2 (HB) pencil
*Chadwick Bond 25% cotton drawing paper

Estimated time of completion: ~4.5 hours (minus the six or more months I left it in stagnation at an early stage, where only the upper body and a sketch for the legs and spider abdomen were done.  I spent extra time on it to get it just right for a contest.)


Basically a mash between the Vagary of Doom 3 and the classic Spider Mastermind. I decided to give her a more motherly appearance (in line with the Vagary), so... there's a few baby arachnotrons by her feet.  This is one of my few more recent works done entirely in #2 pencil, mainly because it was started a couple of years ago and then picked back up and finished only recently.

Still really cool.

How come it changes to a darker shading when you click on the image? Is that a deviantART bug or a feature of dA?

I've noticed from seeing lots of differently sized thumbnails on my computer that because of the texture of the paper affecting the graphite marks, it takes on different shades at different resolutions as standard resizing algorithms are imperfect.

It's certainly very weird and I don't really know what to do about it :s

Tbh it was pretty much supposed to accomplish both of those things, so I'm glad that it's doing what it's supposed to do

The guys at id actually had the same mindset. The thought process behind Vagary was, if I remember correctly, "creepy but sexy."

Yeah, it was "Sexy + Gross = Creepy".  I just kinda took it almost too far.

the slimyness at the bottom really helps the emotional impact of the piece!

Hmm, I'm interested by your take on this.  Would you care to explain more deeply?

so you've got the contrast between the hot cyborg creature touching herself with her robotic arms, but then at the same these birthing fluids splached all around with her little ones... kinda seems like an easy birth, with that look on her face... or do the arms have a life of their own, getting some even though it might be considered an inapproriate moment with the birthing going on and all... no, I guess I was kinda joking, slime's always good for emotional impact wouldnt you say?

Are you meaning that about the chaingun as in it's an obvious phallic reference or that its literal design is good?

That's pretty awesome, I must say. The placement of the gun is pretty hilarious, but I think it looks good in its own way. As for the physical design of the Feminine body and the Spider Machinery I say good show! I especially love how the enlarged brain (to coincide with the Spider Mastermind-esque Appearance) gives an illusion of hair, though I wish that'd been played up just a little more. The way the machinery is setup was very well conceived, I am loving how the circle forms around where the flesh legs meet the body and how clearly developed the jointing in the legs is. You also managed to succeed in giving an ooey-gooey look to the undercarriage at the baby releasing mechanized pseudo-penises so I have to say I'm impressed by that.

 

I really think this would've been a greater design for a Mini-Boss intended Monster than the base Vagary we received, I could especially picture this thing rearing up and launching arachnotrons at the player like living missiles... Just such an awesome image there.

Wow, I never imagined that I'd get an actual critical response on this. I must admit that I myself do feel proud of how I got the mechanics to work out just right in a heavily H. R. Giger-ish way. It's nice to get responses like this, especially when I submitted this to a high school art competition last year during my senior year only to lose out at 3rd place against two other underdeveloped drawings with little to no actual shading.

I also forgot to mention with this work that it was done only with a number 2 pencil (most likely the last serious work by me in that media), and that the Doom 3 style in this I think was largely undeveloped due to me being a classic fan since my childhood.

I've had similar experiences with art competitions, though almost always lost out due to my work being black and white and over fifty percent of everyone else's having color. As for the underworking of Doom 3 Elements, it's fine, but for where the female body meets the mechanical/Arachnotron-esque (I.E. The brain, the gun, and the connecting wires) just a smidgeon more attention would've gone a long way, while playing up the brain hair look would remove the "stout neck and small head" feeling she gives off at first glance. Just stuff to consider to help you think through future designs.

 

I also totally get the over fan-loving of Classic Doom. While I still do and always will love Classic Doom I do enjoy quite a bit from the new designs and love to mix-match aspects of each. Hope to see more intriguing work from you soon, especially if Doom related.
