More Gift Art and Polls - Please Leave Feedback!

First off, I'm very happy to share a beautiful gift art series by Synthean.  This sequence was actually commissioned by a different fan, but I've been given permission to share it here on the site.  Definitely a beautiful piece of work with some very unique features (check out the feet!).

All my thanks to False Princess, the original commissioner.

Next, I am posting a few new polls.  Looking for more feedback - specifically on what types of process I should have more of on the site.  Additionally, if there are certain types of process you'd like to see more of, I'd also like to hear from you (comments) who you think should handle the artwork for it.  I know I rely on a number of regulars for a large number of projects, but I'm always looking for more talent (while there are also many artists out there I just haven't had the opportunity or funds to work with just yet - sometimes just a matter of timing).

Please let me know - links work best.

Synthean - Instructional Video 1

Well, this is an interesting development.  I was plumbing the depths of the TransRepo Industrial archives (ie. basement) when I came across an old film tin with what appeared to be some sort of educational/informational filmstrip in it.  Apparently it stemmed from some early efforts by the company to branch out into genetic manipulation and mutations.  Unfortunately the initial condition was very poor, but with the assistance of my good friend Synthean I have been able to reconstruct several scenes of the film so far.  I do not think the video will ever be high enough quality to post, but we're working on a number of key stills that should give us some insight into the early workings of the company.

For the record, judging from the fashions and retro-futuristic backdrops, I'd date this product somewhere in the mid-50s.  I'll post additional frames as we are able to reconstruct them.

Solios - BOB-E Agricultural Variant

The next in our set by Solios.  The BOB-E series is as equally at home in a tranquil, verdant orchard as it is at slinging toxic sludge.

In this case, a local co-op on Circadian Minor has pooled their resources to contract several BOB-E-A models to assist in the semi-annual harvest.  Not only can they each clear an entire acre of trees in about an hour, but they can also function as mobile "refineries" so to speak - capable of producing any number of apple byproducts - at quality and hygienic standards far above the average middleman - and for a fraction of the total cost.
