A technology/design theme this month:

TACHIKOMA


Inspiration image from Ghost in the Shell:Stand Alone Complex, design by Masamune Shiro



Wikipedia describes a Tachikoma as a "spider type multi leg combat vehicle equipped with artificial intelligence", and that sounds about right. Created by Masamune Shirow for his Manga Ghost in the Shell, and they have also appeared in the GitS anime series. Highly maneuverable, lots of firepower, and a child-like intelligence.

The task; if you were asked to redesign it for a big-budget, live-action Hollywood remake, what would it look like? *

2D and 3D accepted, digital and not, finished or sketched. Feel free to cross-post images into other relevant threads, and to post older images that might fit the theme.

* Yes, this is a sacrilegious task. Just pretend that you're being paid too much money to object.

In case anyone's having the same issue as me (maybe not), think I should
mention that I can't see the image in the first post (been that way for a week).
Direct hit
http://www.absoluteanime.com/ghost_in_the_shell_sac/tachikoma2.jpg
first got me this:
http://www.absoluteanime.com/!bin/broken_image.gif
Second try I got it.
This machine's been a little wonky lately so maybe it is just me.

I like the subject and the current images. Smile

huhm nice idea.. except for the 'imagine u're asked to redesign and be payed'

Why are your Tachikomas gettin bigger and bigger, don't they loose their purpose?
I kinda like the original design of those fuchikoma in the manga.

My unsentimental (i think) attempt. looks a lot like someone tested filters in photoshop with no real idea or direction, which is sort of what happened.



Sup_Ben, nice, its got a lot of character!

Really nice tachikoma renderings. I like the concept of such characters, they're really futuristic. Hope to see this thread progress. Thanks for sharing ya'll.
