VIBRATOR FUNCTION I AM ON THE GROUND LUAGHING MY GOD WHY I was gonna elaborate on the materials but I don’t know that much about that stuff but here we go. His limbs would most likely be made of a light, strong material. Not metal, because that rusts and CHAFES. You said you thought it was cool I did crew right? Fact: racing shells, contrary to popular belief, are NOT MADE OF WOOD. They are made of special carbon polymer that is super strong and super light. The only drawback is that it’s expensive, your basic eight can cost up to 200,000 dollars, sometimes more. So that’s what I was thinking of when designing these, and maybe his hands can be silicone? That shit is bulletproof depending on how it’s processed, and it’s not so cold. Keep that in mind. alazymoon
This is either the dumbest or most brilliant thing I have ever done.
Ive never played My Sweet Bodyguard, but I can’t deny that Ishigami has a certain aesthetic that I find pleasing when I draw him. His nickname seems to be “the cyborg” because of his reserved nature.
Now, I’m literal-minded so I thought “what if he was an actual cyborg?”
Thus the drawing began.
I am a huge fan of anything sci-fi/cyberpunk so I’d like to think I’m pretty good when it comes to drawing robotic limbs.
My definition of a cyborg is any organism whose body is 51% or more artificial, so this includes not just people with mechanical limbs, but people with organic limbs that could have been cloned then grafted, people with artificial organs, etc. But most people classify a “cyborg” as a person with mechanical parts, so I stuck with that general definition.
Before I begin my thought process I would like to say I’ve never seen a shirtless Hideki, but I figured his line of work required him to be moderately fit (and for the sake of fanservice) I gave him some considerable muscle. Lets continue.
Designing an arm for him wasn’t my first idea but after some warm ups I realized that I draw arms pretty damn well. I didn’t want to add anything fancy to it so I just made it look nice. I hope you appreciate that hand because trying to draw a mechanical hand that looked pretty AND functional was like shooting myself in the foot to get out of work: a good idea until I actually did it.
I knew this guy needed a leg, mechanical legs are a staple for sci-fi goodness, and personality wise Hideki reminds me of Holly Summers so the leg is a little shout out to her. I have to say drawing the leg took longer because I don’t like male legs, since a man has a more narrow pelvis than a woman I can’t draw a man with nice, curvy thighs, the way I like them.
His leg, like his arm, is meant to look nice, but I gave my shout out to Ms. Summers in his hidden compartments. He seems like a practical guy, so I figured he’d have some road flares in their for emergencies, as well as basic first aid supplies and possibly a small sewing kit for those pesky loose threads, it only takes one to make you look unprofessional.Now I understand that having these compartments on the thigh versus the calf makes them harder to access (it’s easier to get to your road flares by rolling up a pant leg versus taking off your pants) but everything below the knee is all moving parts and I couldn’t find a way to stick a compartment on there without it looking like a Rubix cube from hell. Final thoughts: well, I’m not done with him yet (IM gonna do something fancy with his glasses) but I’d really like to see a cyberpunk AU of MSB (or a cyberpunk AU of anything, I like cyberpunk) -Shorty
OH NO YOU FUCKING DIDN’T
YOU FUCKING DID
I FUCKING LOVE YOU AND EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS OMG
Okay, FIRST THIS IS BRILLIANT WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT
Second, Hideki is referred to as a cyborg not only because of his reserved nature, but because he has the ability to go without sleeping and eating for days on end (in fact, Kurosawa admits no one knows exactly how many days…possibly infinite).
Third, he isn’t super built in his CGs, but I also think he should be considering the nature of his job and for fanservice:
YES I HAVE TOPLESS HIDEKI SAVED ON MY COMPUTER AS WELL AS EVERY OUTFIT I’VE SEEN HIM IN SO FAR YOU GOTTA PROBLEM WITH THAT PUNK?
Fourth, I LOVE the idea of him having all these compartments for special emergency type situations! He definitely would, being such a planner. (I personally would ask him to have a refrigeration compartment so that he can store snacks for me but I digress).
This is so appropro because I was actually thinking of writing a fic where he does get some sort of cybernetic appendage after an accident THIS ONLY FUELS MY FIRE TO DO SO.
Last but not least, while the mechanical hand is cool I can’t help but think how cold it would feel if he touched me with it, brrr. (Although if he added a vibrator function I might be enticed into changing my mind LOL)
