    IDW #100: The Mechanical Man - VOTING!

    Topic: The Mechanical Man

    Brief:
    1. Design and draw The Mechanical Man
    2. Include orthogonal drawings (front, side and back views minimum) in your entry.
    3. Since the winning entry will be on the new IDW banner, you have to be able to provide your robot with a plain (or no) background! Including a background in your final entry is okay as long as you have a second version without it for me to put on the banner.
    4. That's it... now draw!

    You can find more background information and a list of the prizes in the original thread here: IDW #100: The Mechanical Man - SPECIAL ROUND!

    ------------------------------

    No voting for your own entries! I repeat, no voting for your own entries

    Please give critiques and comments, we're all here to learn from each other!

    Wheeew, heres mine:

    The task of this little fella is conditioning potentially toxic fluids. Floating in a tank, it pumps the purified water through the "umbilical chord" into separate storage tanks. Theres no need for arms; the legs are used when the tanks are empty or when it has do walk to a different location.

    In 2019 the Dempster Brothers, Inc. released their new version of the classical "Dumbster" mobile garbage bin - the Dumbster mobile garbage bot. In big cities they became a part of everyday street life.

    Here's mine,

    The Screaming Knight :

    Robot created in september 1918.
    This WWI allied robot prototype was mainly made to scare and produce an unbearable deafening noise against enemies. Unfortunately because of the end of the war in november 1918 this prototype has never been used in action.

    Ok - Here's mine!... Please... take it away from me!

    For my design I took inspiration from hill climb racing events where enthusiasts race old cars against the clock. I tried to imagine a similar future event where the cars are replaced by droids.

    It's silly, and completely impractical - but damn it was fun! And I learnt a lot doing it...

    So many great entries - best of luck to you all!

    ok finally done. i tried many poses for the main illustration, but thisone actually worked the best, i think it would fit into a graphic banner nicely. sorry for the wide image!

    the mechanical man was a milestone in AI technology. this was the big break IDW inc. had waited for for a long time. The mechanical man was suited for about any manual labour, and had a new type of AI that finally made the "allround" robots worth while. Its thinking capacity was close to human, it had the capability to learn and a well developed arsenal of feelings. As the human reign of the earth crumbled the robots lived on. They adapted the ways of man in things like behavior and speech, but differed in many ways in action. The era of industry was gone as the robots had learned about the old ways of the humans and had strong feelings of love and nostalgia for the natural earth. They built no houses. They had no fields. They did not even build new copies of themselves. They just walked the earth, looking at things, talking to one and other, thinking, until they rusted, and then left the earth to nature.

    Blimey, got it all done! I haven't done plan views since I did a GCSE in Technical Drawing in my youth. I moved the side view from the middle to the left as I thought it flowed a bit better.

    As usual, a few notes on this (Special) round of IDW:

    First of all, thanks a lot for the amazing entries this time around and to everyone who participated I'm sure most of these would look nice on the banner for IDW, but I'll let the public decide on this one. The winner for this round will be decided by public vote, everyone only has one single vote though so make it count!

    Next round will be up soon and be as normal

    This was hard to vote for. There was a lot of really cool designs. My vote goes to Mountain B because I would really have fun modeling and rigging this character.

    Rezeroth: Really love your pose. Your overall design is consistent and works well. Plus it looks sick.

    Evil Sloth: Love your value studies. You have a cool story behind your character and you put a lot of work into it. Nice job.

    Adi: Really cool pose and color pallet. He would work very well for an in game character.

    Devilminer: This one blew me away at the last minute. Really cool pose and designs. Its very elegant and clean. She might have a little hard time bending her legs though but still its really cool.

    Nice job all around everybody.

    Xgabo - Holy crap! That's sweet. The rendering and the setup is great, nice choice on the low angle. I think the legs were a really good design choice because they ground the fantasy "robot" into feasible and recognizable design. Without reading your description I already have an idea of what it does and how it works. I like that your design presented some purpose and functionality and the intent was not purely aesthetic or comedic. It is like an advertisment for a product in a world that I want to know more about. I want to have Olympic Man's babies.

    I offer my sincerest apologies to everybody who entered this contest. I found out recently that a member of my family tempered with the votes in order to try to make me win. I do not approve of his actions and I am extremely sorry. I did not ask for this to append, I only showed him what I had been up to and he decided to temper the vote on his own behalf.

    Again, I am so very sorry of what happen and I would like to assure you that I will not happen again. I hope this will clear my name even partially for I’m very ashamed of what happened.

    PMaz.

    Ok my vote went to mortain.B be, because the idea of burning the rubbish inside and suck the toxic fumes to the head and store them is just awesome. I think there is a bigger industrial design backround behind them compared to the just wonderful pic from D@niel. It's really nicely done in painting and color( I love the Flag) but it's more a character or a concept.
    And you are leading anyways
    Also Rezeroth really nice job, looks like a "metroid badass foodballplayer", I think it's not nice to get tackled by him. Great pose.
    devilminer outstanding design man, you have a real strong talent.
    Cheers
