    "HEY HEY HEY HI HEY HEY HI!!!"(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

    Everyone's Favorite little philosophical AI aide - Tachikoma !

    My intention was to post this little fellow week ago but due to work and prioritizing Lumos Fanart it got severe delay indeed. Come of You probably did notice that this fellow haves two Machinegun arms instead of one. For more firepower? Yiss =D ! Why? Well it's connected to next coming UNIT 6 membr which apparently is somewhat equivalent of Batou of Section 9 (and not only tending to Tachikoma.... lets say their perspective of 'dealing with Yakuza" would be mirror perfect reflection XD). If anything: UNIT 6 haves even more hot-blooded member giving natural oil to their AI assistants :3.
    Thus 'additional FIREPOWER'!

    And now little surprise!

    So if two things happen:
    -Raziel and Lumos will be cool with it.
    -Akumakon will admit me to Artist alley on September

    Then I'm planning on making a colored version of this art a background billboard for my booth =D!
    I imagine it would look real cool as such and sure enough catch few glimpses but what do You guys think :) ?

    @UrODelA

    Haha, no worries, work is being done ;)

    Colouring in fact did not started yet (>_<) but a new Unit 6 member and Disrespect pencil sketches designs are ready and soon will be coming here. They would had been here if not my bad weekend. As to why the work got slowpaced and I am not in game all that much (no seriously 3 days since last time atm T_T) is because I caught a ... flu, cold? Wasn't seeing the doctor on that so dunno for sure but since Friday evening after work till Today work I had slight 38C fever coming back forth. All seems fine now >_> (+earlier I had some paid commissions during the week which consumed Monday-Friday time and bits of sleep >_<)

    So there is a possibility that next update there will be 2 arts instead of one. There is also sadly possibility that 'next update 'won't be on Friday but Saturday. I simply think there might not be enough free time for me to clean and Ink those sketches. Ew. I can try to make Disrespect one on Friday due to livestream and other one next day ;)

    Most of all: BIG THANKS! It's good to know someone is following as things unfold here and willing to poke me once it seems I fell asleep XD

    PS: Next Unit 6 member is a 'gun-nut' hot blood a bit, so expect some nice Masamune Shirow inspired gun design from me :D

    Guess this famous "WAT?!" moment makes for good intro on what I have to say.

    Good news: I'm healthy! (again)

    Bad news: my scanner is not...

    And this makes for reason of no update on Friday, or Saturday... or today. It's in repairs currently and I take it back on Tuesday. It's surely lame and I feel lame . Also sorry for not informing earlier.

    good to hear you're ok! ^^

    with all the ( stream-) fuzz going on, i thought you would wait for a moment of calmness... ^^

    ...and scanners are funny creatures...even more those MFC printers, that won't let me scan from a PC because the ink is almost empty and when using the copy function it would burn the head...i don't want to copy - i just want to use the scan-function I PAYED FOR! ....sry for that...rant end 8D

    “The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.”

    Hello everyone!!!

    I cannot express in words how horrible person I am for disappearing like that and how deeply bad I feel towards Disrespect for delaying my take on his operative art (no seriously, I do feel bad about it)

    That being said I would postpone that one particular art till weekly livestream as to watch his reaction live as it was with Lumos and Raziel. Call it my little pleasure. It's also due to fact that it's already 'redo' of the art as 1st version was lost due to 'circumstances' >_>

    Some of You might miss me in-game (well it's always nice to have someone for sure kills, right XD?) but that also will change as world fameous Pacifist is returning :)

    I won't list all the reasons I disappeared but sum it up to: listen what doctor says.

    That being said:
    The works on Ghost in the Shell: First Assault - Dual Phase artbook are once more in more than ever hyped progress!!! I sure as hell am not resigning on this project. With Irish Akumakon date announced and Artists registry coming in 3 weeks I hope to present to both - the Akumakon committee - and You guys some best pieces and designs I could come up to date. For today I present but a small token of that with 'last female' operative of my "Unit 6" fanfic:

    Tabitha Giselle Bernadette

    image


    Tabitha Giselle Bernadette comes from European mercenary family which achieved it's highly regarded status during the World War III and thrived during the later Second Vietnam War in which late phases Tabitha herself took active part despite her really young age at the time. Needless to say her lineage renown even prior to 3rd World War events as family able to 'produce' near perfect military prodigies amassed a large number of accomplishments during the later years and due to their 'private status' of mercenaries they also created a powerful net of contacts, most of which would shape Tabitha's past.

    To state four most important connections Bernadette family created, it would be "Banheim" and "Neptek" corporations, "EU Cyberware Research Association" and lastly United Nations . Both Banheim which became at some point most luxury and advanced European small arms producer/dealer and Neptek which was high end reasearcher and producer of military contracted ammunition during as 3rd and 4th World War were exclusive 'tool providers' for Bernadette. Their connection was strong enough to be liaison between the companies which merged in 2022 and continued to grow ever since. In case of "E.UC.R.A." which was losely an attempt to enable stable comunication between scattered European cyberware research labs, Bernadettes were able to make a contact with some of most revolutionary yet questionable out of them. Considering family's line of work the need of things such as advanced prosthetics was pretty much natural but the cooperation went further than that. The family volunteered more than once into human research of often completely new and potentially dangerous technologies, such as "Zorza" implant research. As for connections to United Nations, those were genuinely established via war demand. Often nicknamed as "Gévaudanian Beasts" , Bernadettes were exceptionally skilled in warfare and thus they were sent often to what was considered to be suicide missions which UN could not afford to send own regular troops to.

    Tabitha was raised in military fashion since her earliest childhood. Weirdly enough it seemed to be in tune with her nature as she was prone to some disturbing thought notions (least as for a little girl). Namely: Tabitha since early days seemed to enjoy conflict and violence quite much, alas never one-sided which she regarded as "boring". With age that tendency grew to near obsession where she would intentionally put herself 'up to challenge' merely to enjoy the thrill out of it. That alone was however anormal even among her family which soon regarded her as overly ruthless and sometimes even "insane". Part of it was associated later with being one of few family children put into "Zorza" implant experiment out of which all showed deeper emotional experiences. The experiment alone (which Tabitha became a part of at age of nine) was meant to control human body growth and developement on cellural level via special nanotech implant directly connected to the brain of the subject. The technology required periodical weekly attuning with outer device but the implant could control greatly bodily chemistry and even actual cell reproduction processes. The end goal which theoretically was achieved was to control developement of human subject's body so that it would acquire it's utmost possible potential. Positive sideffect was also heightened tolerance to toxins and radiation of the participating subjects. Yet if we are speaking of cyberware, then it was not only instance when Tabitha's body was modified. By the time her body had developed Tabitha went through a multitude of operations to further increase her potential, some of which would include artificial skeletal structure and muscle enhancements as well as well-known cyberbrain which in fact had to be a bit customized. However following the European approach of rather 'enchancing' than 'replacing' the body with cyberware she retained huge part of her actual humand body, which regardless was near super-human even as a regular flesh.

    As to inquire in the set of events which lead to Tabitha joining into Unit 6 there would be at least few reasons. Most unofficial being that her family in fact wanted to temporarily get a rid of her due to being rather unpredictable troublemaker even amongst them. The more official would be that she in fact stands as one of most distinguished living members of her family which was asked for participation in the project by UN directly.

    Her personality is twisted to say the least. The most befitting term would be a battle-freak as Tabitha would love to join any good fight no matter if it is a gun or fist fighting involved. And it's probably not good idea to send her for any negotiations as 'shooting first and asking questions later" seems to be her motto. Same time however she seems to have a moral code intact as she does not enjoy any on-sided conflicts and is against fighting defenseless. Yet for anyone she considers as a target she is known to be extremely intimidating if not frightening. In that reagard it is helpfull for her that she is literally 'big girl'. Standing 188 cm (6'2") tall and being well build might have to do with her early implantations while the pair of pointy horns which she surgically added to her skull before coming to Japan certainly add to her overall scare factor. In fact it is intentional as she does state to like Oni from Japanese legends and decided it'll be fun to look even more like one. Despite all of that she is physically quite attractive.

    In Unit 6 she is considered to be a "Suppression and Crowd Control" specialist. Same time over half of her weaponry requires special permission to be actually deployed and considered more of a frontline war weaponry designed for feats such as anti-landmate warfare. Due to that Tabitha is hardly ever deployed in her full gear and often haves a free time which would often make her deeply bored. Yet when Unit 6 faces something 'big' she does get unleashed.

    (Double post due to character count restriction. Boy I wrote a lot)

    And that's it for now!

    I know most of You probably wanna see Disrespect as an operative, but that waits till Friday ;) Same time some of You probably feel bit sad about Tabi being last 'female' operative for artbook :) (things are going to get 'manly' from now on XD). But what are your thoughts? Is she like-able? Is she in tune with GitS world? Would you like to see her arm-wrestle Batou? (II know I would XD)

    Her design is most 'original' so far as to fact that I modified her costume even further than in other operatives cases and basically designed her weaponry basing it only on Masamune Shirow's works. For interested: both guns are savage requiring 'permission to deploy' with bigger one being based around 'Railgun' theory and smaller sniper-like being based around 'Gauss cannon" theory :)
