The Shrike by Gorrem The Shrike by Gorrem
More old work I feel is okay to release now. This was a concept for the Shrike, a monster from the sci-fi series Hyperion. He is described as a monster made entirely of razor blades with red eyes.

Amazing! The design is so vicious and severe looking, it's very intimidating. I especially like how intricate all of the blades are, it's mesmerising.
The red and the gunmetal colours look really stylish together as well.

Probably the best representation I've seen of the Shrike.

Victim: Oh, wow... so, what's your function?
Shrike: ... oh, you know, baking, cooking, cleaning, general household chores.
Victim: Amazing! How do you do that with all those spikes?
Shrike: Sarcasm helps.
Victim: How s- *super-sliced*

Shrike: Actually, 97% of my job is aggression.
Victim 2: Really? What's the other 3%?
Shrike: Aggression.
Victim 2: Wait... doesn't that add up to 100% aggression?
Shrike: Perhaps. But I'd like to think I have some redeeming qualities.
Victim 2: ...
Shrike: ... damn it. I've already killed you, haven't I?
Victim 2: *gurgle*

Interesting interpretation, but I always saw him as more bulky, husky. Thicker not slimmer. Great art. Dam Simmons Hyperion quartet is one of my favorite sci-fi series. One of the best.

I like it, it's missing a few details, like the 'steam-shovel jaw' and more of an emphasis on finger blades rather than sword like appendages, but I still like it.

Just finished reading Fall of Hyperion this weekend. Finding a concept piece of the Srike so soon after is a really nice surprise, especially as before reading the books never encountered any art related to them. Good job the design! :)

same thing, I think, it have to be more massive. But as I remember, the ship measure his weight. It was about 1 tonne. And if steel creature weights just 1 tonne, it may be like in this art

This looks amazinggg~!

I like how everything fits together and he still looks movable
Like he can still bend his torso and move around and stretch

It makes my want to sculpt it in zbrush...
