As the name may somewhat suggest, this image was inspired by something I have seen recently, advertisements for the First Person Shooter games "Overwatch" and "Battle Born".
Battle Born: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYILRya5Dgg
I don't plan on picking up either game, since I really suck at FPS games, but I found I like the character designs for both games, but Overwatch in particular.
There was even a little bit of controversy about a certain character in Overwatch called "Tracer", and the 'Cammy'-like victory pose she could give (showing the viewer her rear end). It seems that it upset one vocal parent, and so blizzard changed the pose to make them happy 9_9: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KxikTxznirI
My own thoughts on the subject: In short, Tracer doesn't HAVE a butt, so there was really nothing there to be upset over :-)
Anyway, this character is in the style of characters from the game (maybe Widowmaker over all others).
Another side geek note: Awhile back I did images that mixed the varioius Dungeons and Dragons fantasy tropes with Cyberpunk, in a setting I dubbed "Cyber Arcanna". Its funny, but Widowmaker from Overwatch really fits a 'Cyber Drow' (Dark Elf) concept really well, even down to the spider theme and skin coloring (sinca a lot of artists out there color their drow purple instead of jet black).
