Project BF, image 4: ZEN Troopers exploration
Some designs for ZEN troopers ('soldiers' of the main corporation from the story). Just like with the architecture, the idea was to make them sf-looking with strong Eastern influences, visible mostly in the outfits/armor.
About the project:
'Butterfly' is my long-term personal project that started as a sf/cyberpunk point-and-click adventure game back in 2009. Here
you can read an actual interview about it and see some old concepts - that's when I started with digital painting
Since I don't have any more time for its development, I decided to tell the story in a series of concepts, maybe finalized with a downloadable mini-artbook. We'll see
The story, set in Shanghai, in the year 2099, when androids stand for almost 1/3 of the general population. An undercover agent of a major corporation, ZEN Technologies, is sent on a mission to recover a stolen prototype of an AI module. In order to track the thief, he has to lurk into the deepest and oldest areas of megalopolis.
