My original tumblr post was here. This image was researched by Bacchus at ErosBlog as part of the “Δ commission.” The research was originally published at Hedonix as “Δ 032 Sexy Cyborg Frad.” Here is what Bacchus found.
This image is called Frad by Russian artist soft-h on DeviantArt. The artist has an extensive DeviantArt gallery and a recently-moribund LiveJournal blog. Very little additional information about this artist seems to be available on the web.
Original post here. This image was researched by Bacchus at ErosBlog as part of the “Γ commission.” The research was originally published at Hedonix as “Γ 055 – Plugsuit Procedure.” Here is what Bacchus found.
This image is the work of an artist who called himself “spworks”, who posted it in several places on the internet in 2003 and requested comments on it at the CGTalk forums for the Society of Digital Artists:
hi.. This is my work..(first time upload in here). Only used Photoshop 6.0.. comment plz
One comment in the subsequent thread asks “Perhaps the plugsuits from Evangelion were your inspiration for her suit? And do I notice some buildings from Final Fantasy Spirits Within through the window?” The artist replied “This picture was influenced by several other artwork. My knowledge of science fiction is limited so I based my work on many others.”
Original post here. This image was researched by Bacchus at ErosBlog as part of the “Γ commission.” The research was originally published at Hedonix as “Γ 044 – Bionic Pinup.” Here is what Bacchus found.
This pinup artwork is called Must Be Bunnies and it’s by German artist Simon Eckert (scebiqu on DeviantArt). The artist explains:
My collegue ~Odinoir is busy making a browser game called “Bionic Battle Mutants” formerly known as “Cyber Mutant Street Gangs” and asked me to do a Bionic-themed pinup for it which will appear somewhere in the game.
There’s a further hint of a possible companion “mutants” piece by another artist: “~NaRai is in for making the matching mutant-themed pinup!” However, no mutant-themed piece is visible in that artist’s DeviantArt gallery as yet.
Original post here. This image was researched by Bacchus at ErosBlog as part of the “Γ commission.” The research was originally published at Hedonix as “Γ 019 – Remilia’s Metal Wings.” Here is what Bacchus found.
This artwork is titled レミリア (machine-translates to “Remilia) by うどんやきりい (machine-translates to “The Kirii and Udon”) on Pixiv. Among the machine-translated tags we find “Remilia Scarlet”, who (according to this wiki entry) is a vampire character in several video games in the Touhou Project, which in turn is “the world’s most prolific fan-made shooter series.” Remilia has the power to shapeshift into a bat, but “her wings remain visible even when she is in human form, making it impossible to pass herself off completely as a human.” It is unclear whether the cyborg-style wings in this artwork are canonical in appearance, or are the artist’s whimsical reinterpretation of the character. There are nine pages on Pixiv of other artworks with the same Remilia Scarlet tag, with a great diversity of depictions.
Original post here. This image was researched by Bacchus at ErosBlog as part of the “Γ commission.” It was originally published at Hedonix as “Γ 012 – Motoko Kusanagi In Trouble“. Here is Bacchus’s resaerch:
A page at Mangadrawing.net identifies this as artwork featuring the character Motoko Kusanagi from the anime and manga series Ghost In The Shell and Ghost In The Shell Stand Alone Complex. Wikipedia tells us that
Major Motoko Kusanagi (草薙 素子) is an augmented-cybernetic human employed as the squad leader of Public Security Section 9, a fictional law-enforcement division of the real Japanese National Public Safety Commission. Being strong-willed, physically powerful, and highly intelligent, she is well known for her skills in deduction and hacking.
The artist is Tetra Takamine, whose Pixiv page featuring this artwork is here. In some accompanying artist comments of which Google Translate can make but little, the tags and machine-translated title seem to reference a non-existent third season of Stand Alone Complex and there’s a suggestion that the artist was influenced by the Stand Alone Complex PS2 game, which is set between the two seasons of the anime show.
Original post here. This image was researched by Bacchus at ErosBlogBacchus at Erosblog as part of the “Γ commission.” It was originally published at Hedonix as “Γ 003 – Cyborg Skater Girl.” Here is Bacchus’s research:
This image opened a short thread on Drawr.net in 2010, where can also be found what looks like notes and preliminary drawings by the artist along with at least one related artwork by a different artist featuring the same cyborg skater girl. The creator of this image was Drawr.net user 干し首 (machine translation: shrunken head), whose drawr.net URL is http://drawr.net/metalunamutant
According to this, drawr.net is:
a Flash-based website where anyone with a pixiv account can sign in and draw inside their browser, through a web application.
Since drawr does not have an interface for text, people usually reply to each other using drawings or drawn text. This means that people can create threads, where anyone can participate with drawn replies.
