Well, this has been a constant pain in my ass for the last two weeks.. first getting everything i wanted to look right (which i'm still not entirely happy with) and then the colouring oh dear god the colouring so many tiny little spaces, anyway...
This is Rigg, no not the little bizzaro rat creature in the orange jumpsuit and baggy jeans, the big red mech arms, yeah thats Rigg! the rodent type guy is known as No.177125IX cos he's a science experiment so he didn't get an actual name, sad huh?!
Both created by one Dr. Orttermann for purposes unknown, the Rigg was a prototype industrial working harness with what was supposed to be a base level of artificial intelligence, and No.177125IX was genetically created to be its test pilot, he had to be genetically purpose built because existing animal testing laws strictly forbid, or at least frown upon, the merging of mechanical circuitry and machine parts to a helpless and defencless animal.
And so the two were joined in a somewhat harmonious symbiotic relationship, however, the Rigg's base level A.I turned out to be less of a base level and more of an advanced learning programme, and No. 177125IX had developed an overwhelming persecution complex which made him less than co-operative, and yet, the two conspired to escape the confines of their laboratory holding cell and explore the world... or, failing that the next time Dr. Orttermann came to see them, beat the living shit out of him!
