This is an android pirate who was originally some kind of worker droid, maybe in a mineral mine. But an ion or other kind of storm has made him sentient, and he’s cut himself free from serving humans. He’s made it his job to attack other ships to free their droids and make them sentient.
The idea I’m going for here is mostly the look of the Hollywood pirates like Captain Blood and the Crimson Pirate, but with hints of robot. His face has a few exposed RF coils or diodes, and one or two limbs are hacked down to steel rods from battles.
I appreciate any comments. The comments I got on my original robot were hugely helpful.
