Lisa's bamboo suit by AxelMedellin Lisa's bamboo suit by AxelMedellin
Some artwork being prepared at a hectic pace for the comicbook challenge's pitch...

Imagine if you will...

Japanese had this ancient techniques for creating bonsai trees, right? Well, why not apply them to bamboo? Make it grow whatever size they wanted... it's light and extremely resistant... natural pistons can be made from it... it even can grow an inch a day... an extremely light, incredibly hard and flexible armor could be made... Lisa made one.

I KNOW it would work, I can feel it...

I'm sick.

They already grow houses this way, it's a start. Just a hint of green, a little like metal. And Lisa is a great name.

plus, if it runs out of fuel in the middle of nowhere, it can double as firewood.

Oooooohhhhhh armies of bamboo robots, that would be so cool.
If you wanted it bigger and better you wouldn't have to pay anything for it, just wait for it to grow.
Great work, and a really nifty idea.

I love it, a few green bamboo leaves here and there would be amazing, like I love the twisted bamboo idea, got some in my office here, haha, i forget to water it and it's still indestructible. I see your concept most vividly in the robot's calf musculature, it's just a great idea. I'm also imagining cross-sections of bamboo, how you can see all the capillarys in it, I see some of that going on in his joints. The retaining pin looking things on the outside of the joints are a nice touch, too. This is clever, man.
