    FINALS ONLY
    -=DEEP :: UNDERSEA UTOPIA=-
    -= CHARACTERS =-


    Chow :: Deep Voting

    Instead of the normal one entry per person, this time we want to see a variety of work.

    Judging will be based on idea development, presentation, and the over-all body of work (vision). The amount of work invested in each idea or concept is up to you; 5 developed concepts with sketches to back them up, 100 thumbnails categorized on different subjects, go wild. In the end, bundle it into one image/submission and post in this thread.

    The results will be judged by both a public poll and a judging panel, as there are going to be awesome prizes for the winners!

    Focus the illustration on the characters, idea development, and design. You may include environments, and creatures and equipment... But they should not be the focus of the design. Both color or B/W entries are accepted.

    Max single submitted image size 1200x1024 pixels.

    New Images only, no old work.

    Just a reminder:

    DEADLINE IS TONIGHT AT 11:59.

    I’m working with a couple of different ideas.

    The first sketches are for a near-future genetic engineering scenario where humans are attempting to establish an undersea utopia, told in a sort of diary, day-in-the-life style about the challenges of what they’re trying to do. I will refer to this as “Sci-Fi”

    The other is a new episode of Gulliver’s Travels, in Atlantis. For this 18th-century fantastical world, the Atlanteans might be wispy-finned water-breathing mer-people or they might be fairly normal looking air-breathers who use technology to let them breathe water and good old flippers to swim. They have a very ideal, almost saccharine utopia, and there will be some social commentary, though I’m still trying to figure out that part. I will refer to this as “Gulliver.” Here's my POW progress.

    A few designs (e.g. the dolphin-mermen) may have potential for either world.

    Sci-fi:

    info:
    - hunter
    - male
    - between 15 and 40 years old
    - survivor of the once known human race, now a hybrid between humans and an unknown species
    - needs liquid (made of recycled utopia habitants-but they must be freshly catched, already dead corps are not of any use) to breath under water as also on dry land(or at least what is left above the surface)
    - hunts also to provide "material" for experiments and everlasting search for eternal life
    - nasty son of a bitch overall

    After finding two pages from the presumed lost logbook of Tom Inglesson, a research team under leadership of Sir Jonathan Kingsly went down into the deep in the centre of the Tobacan sea to explore and find out what was true about the forgotten tale of the Tenterticuan.

    Background Info on the Utopia: This world is on a planet in a galaxy unknown to men at this point in time. Basically it is a society similar to Canada, in the sense that it is a land for immigrants. It has been built only 300 years ago. Species from around the universe come here, and pay obnoxious amounts of money to stay in this underwater Utopia. It has been built and ran by some of the richest and most talented individuals from around the universe. The underwater world is filled with a certain mixture of air that most species from around the universe agree with. There are certain cities however, that are filled with different types of water, for immigrants that don't use air, but still want to experience life in the encased underwater cities.
    War is never a problem, poverty or hunger is never a problem,the government is never a problem, in fact, there really are no real problems here.

    (1) This man has the monopoly on the whole food industry in this world. Every piece of food made on this whole planet, be it fast food or fine dining, comes from this man's corporation. He is the only known creature in the universe to own a complete gastronomical monopoly on an entire planet.Needless to say he is one of the richest men in the universe, and his restaurants can be found pretty much any planet you can visit.

    (2) This man has a monopoly on the mining business. He gathers every energy source needed throughout the entire world. Sometimes he even gathers them from other worlds and imports hem back home.He has mining businesses in over 100 planets.He is one of the richest men in the universe as well.

    The President of this world. He conceils his identity so that racism cannot arise. He might be a human, might even be a robot. He doesn't rule with an iron fist, mostly because nothing goes wrong.

    Chow :: Deep Voting

    This is the Church Leader. The only Human official in this world. No race other then humans ever believed in god, so he isnt very important. He pretends to be a prophet.

    Chow :: Deep Voting

    This man is the commander of the Military.He was recruited by this planet as the supreme commander of it's military for the brilliant leadership he has shown in the wars back at his own planet. However since arriving, the only thing he ever had to do is whipe out the natives, and has not seen any action ever since. The military on this planet may be highly trained, but they have no real experience.

    Chow :: Deep Voting

    This man is the main engineer and architect on this planet. He is in his middle ages, he is 432 years old. He has built and designed next to everything on this world.His species are known for really long lifetimes, and therefore extreme amounts of experience and wisdom. Obviously he is an extremely rich and important man.

    Chow :: Deep Voting

    This is the head doctor, his crowning achievement was being able to mix different species together, and create offspring that was never before possible. He has troublekeeping his hands to himself though, and has been on trial many times for sexually harrassing his patients. What he brings to medicine everyday is way more important then his misconduct, and his lawyers are way too expensive for him to loose a case, so he stays.

    Chow :: Deep Voting

    No one knows what species this creature is. All we know is that there is none other like it. This creature is known for momentarily appearing on planets and foretelling their ultimate destruction in the approporiate language for the given planet (despite not even having a mouth). When its advice isn't taken, the planet ends up destroying itself in the exact way the creature foretold. It has been making recorded appearances for a few billion years now. Some say this creature is all that ever was, and all that will ever be.

    This time it visits the underwater Utopia and fortells it's demise in the form of ruthless creatures erupting from the underwater caves to claim what is rightfully theirs and destroying everyone and everything in the process.

    Chow :: Deep Voting

    This race lived in the underwater caves, and inside the planet's core for millions of years, but then the invaders from the entire universe came and built underwater cities on top of their emergence holes and caves. Now they are going to take them back.

    Through specific training they can grow weapons on their arms, so each one of these creatures will have a bit of a different arsenal. This one in specific decided to focus on his right arm to grow an ultimate blade that can crush anything (including the unexperienced military of the immigrant invaders).

    And that is how my underwater Utopia began and met an abrupt end.
