The Hu-BR-15 mk.01, nicknamed "Golem", was created by a joint effort of Japanese and Israeli scientists.
It is distinguishable by its tough ceramic plating, and its components are on the forefront of biotechnology: it is a walking petri dish, continually absorbing and breaking down enzymes; it is also a potential biological weapon, if ever it were to leak after being dealt with damage.

Miraculously, the Hu-BR-15 mk.01 developed sentience, and overrode the laws of robotics, making an escape after killing every person involved in its conception.
It is needless to specify that this subject is dangerous and armed.

It evolves through an augmented reality, with the help of constant feedback from the digital realm: it can know who everybody is in the street, where it is exactly, and hack surveillance equipment at its own whim.

Some say it was freed by a secret Israeli cell and controlled remotely.

Thanks everybody! I'm so pleased that I'm in second place!!

I've changed it according to your criticisms, but I do however disagree on putting shadows down, because that'll create banding. In my current version, I have banding but it's not too bad as the colours contrast from each other.

 Just watched Der Golem the other night.

Bonus points for synchronicity :)

Glad this was pushed into the challenge in time.

 This is fantastic, one of my favorite entries. Only thing are that the 1 pixel highlights are kinda conflicting, lone the ones at the top of the head make them look like the lightsource is below, while the ones on the side imply one above (The shading also implies the upper lightsource)


I would replace the highlights on the plate on his forehead / cranium with shadows. It'll still make it appear 3D and wont conflict with the lightsource.

This is looks awesome. That description sounds like it would make a pretty epic movie!

 that's fantastic.

I don't know either. I've tried to change it by editing the submission, but to no avail. I've sent a PM to Jeremy.
Fingers crossed to get this one through!

 Why is this not in the weekly challenge?  love the look of the eyes, like there's no emotion, pretty damn cool.

Stunning work, sir. Furthermore it appears you put a lot of thought into it. ;)

 I love the shining light!

TheoVision (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 7/29/2012 10:47

Got my vote as well! Don't dare to ask who the poor fella was in the backdrop...

Dredlockz (Level 5 Detective) @ 7/29/2012 10:40

Wow dude, it's even better than your other submission. 
Great job with the background too, it helps reinforce his "evilness".

 check under his tongue, I'll bet there's an off switch

Looking good

 First of all, I love the backstory. Along with the light shining in the background and the blood smear, it gives an emotional background to it.

For what it looks like, (to me) it looks straight out of a vintage pre-1960's sci fi film.

As for the pixels, my only issue is the shadow in the bridge (not sure of that word) under his nose and between his top lip. I feel like using some Anti Aliasing on it to slightly tilt the tip of the shadow to the right of the image would help, because having it perfectly down when the nose is angled to the right of the image looks wrong to me.

All in all I love this one, and it has my vote.
