cinematics II

two more cinematic moments from the story. Both are work-in-progress. "reactivating the past" when our hero discovers and reactivates EDA who will reveal the truth about the past to him. decided to go with it though one might ask himself...where exactly is he activating her? "Unnatural selection" shows the world the hero lives in and the enslaved humans when the weaker ones are being...removed.

A few new moments from my story. Especially like the last one. EDA's last moments. Her battery has run out and her body is shutting down. 723 must enter his hard earned freedom without her.

Retro tech

Have come to call the design of my futuristic story retro tech since it combines medieval weapons and retro ideas with science fiction. Rusty is a sentinel robot whom the main character 723 personizes and names Rusty. He is a personification of the heartless machine that will not hesitate to end a human life if it doesn't obey their command.
Also included is the final image of EDA - the female robot and a detail image of 723.

Greek mythology

The story of Medusa and Perseus the bastard who viciously killed that poor woman. He later used her head (since her gaze turned anyone into stone) to save Andromeda aka the Babe from a gigantic sea monster...named Bubbles.

Birth of 723

the heroic slave - futuristic spartacus - man against machine. He is the symbol for the triumph of the human spirit over the machine. And he kicks robo ass like no other...

Colored scenes

Futuristic Spartacus

Here are the turnaround and face for my main hero character. His name is 723, since he was born in a machine ruled world. He was a tough challenge since I wanted to have elements of his slavery as well as the hero. Strength and weakness at the same time. I began looking at him as a futuristic Spartacus which helped. He is strong yet has signs of his torments. As a means of controlling the humans further I had the idea of the Spinal Parasite. A lot of ideas have already been done like the explosive collar or magnetic boots but I haven't seen this one done.

cinematic moment

took one of my thumbs to a closer finish. Tried to keep the moment dramatic but next I´ll be adding some colors fleshing it out a little further.

Trying to come up with interesting moments from my thesis story using strong perspectives. Somehow it helps me to work very small when doing thumbs. Guess I get a better feeling for the composition.

Color me blindly

Color variations for the final character illustration. Since her face is a monitor i wanted it to stand out with a different illumination. This would also help bring the focus to her face. This means soon I´ll be posting the final version of this lady...drumroll please.

EDA - breaking the beautiful

Designing this old, broken female robot was a fun challenge. Somehow I wanted to show her past beauty yet give her visible damage. So the question was how much can I break her while maintaining her feminine shape? I ended up with an unusual silhouette that I´m rather pleased with. And thus EDA was born.

EDA - Evolutionary Data Automaton

A promo piece for my project that currently runs under the title RESURRECTION. Decided to go with the monitor face for the female robot character EDA.

Female Robots

For my thesis project I have a female robot character that plays a mayor role. Designing her has been a challenge but fun. Got the idea to make her face a display that shows a real female face. That way she can show all range of emotions without looking to static or dead. I really want her to be a strong character. On top the display can show other things like status reports or maps and could even be a touch screen.

Mr Bubbles

Here is a battlesuit concept. Since I would think that even in the future ground combat would always be necessary the question is how would it evolve. Would there even be humans inside these suits?

In the beginn there was...

My first blog. Jeez, guess it was just a matter of time before I lost my blog virginity. This blog will be my outlet on these discoveries and visual thoughts. Anybody who doesn´t have anything better to do than reading this is welcome to comment on the work, in fact I very much encourage it. Oh, and if you have a job for me...then you are MORE than welcome to contact me !

So here are the first sketches. My favorite genres are science fiction and fantasy as may be noticeable.
