Also inked the outline of the drawing. Looks neat, but not sure if it fits. I'm not really a big fan of outline in works that are approachign realistic rendering.
Still gotta work on that background, and when I'm finished with this, I need to make a basic character sheet, which means I get to draw the same character ~3 more times until the deadline (monday :o)

In my head I was thinking that they've pumped something into this guys veins, making him super-agressive, trying to hack and slash everything he sees. And then when the whatever substance runs out, he starts feeling the pain from all the implants and surgeries they've done, and will eventually want to kill himself.
Anyhoooo, I'm a bit off with my design when it comes to the brief. Getting a bit too scifi as well. Gotta pay attention to stuff.
At least this time my lighting setup shows enough of the character (last time was too murky).

Another thing with designing is to scatter different elements around, so the whole thing is coherent. I'm trying to do that with having the leather pieces, muscle tissue, bubbles and mechanical parts all appearing all around the design. I think it's the same with color coherence in a painting. They say a color should always appear elsewhere in the painting, to bind it to the whole.

I have in my mind some kind of a poison experiment... gotta see what happens. My character drawing skills are like a rusty meat knife, they're rusty. Har har.

There was also some talk about perspective issues when depicting underwater and overwater object at the same time, so I rounded up the horizon line to imitate a fisheye lens.
edit: Upped a more complete version, still far from completion. Deadline on monday though :3

Think about something you regret doing. If you could go back in time, would you do differently? You would probably answer ‘yes’. But could you do differently? It's not possible to travel back in time with this improved future knowledge and make a more educated decision. The insight that a poor choice has been made always comes afterwards. Yet people insist that they had made a poor choice at the time of choosing. In fact at the time of choosing the choice was the best one they could make, so that's what they did. Had a better choice revealed itself at the moment of choosing, they would've made that better choice instead.
Why do people regret? Why do people think they make poor choices, when it's not true?
We've been brainwashed into regretting, thinking we are bad persons, thinking that we should’ve somehow magically had some better information, but it was because of our magically tainted soul that we didn’t have this knowledge. We think we should’ve known better, when in fact we could not have.
Think about right now, this moment. Why would you make a mistake? Why would you do something you don’t intend to do? How could you do something you don’t intend to do? Bad choices always seem to be made in the past, never in the present. Why is that? Is it possible to make a bad choice? It's possible to think afterwards that it was a bad choice, but in the time of choosing, is it possible to choose wrong?
