Ok so here are my contest entries- This first one is a digital art piece done in GIMPshop
1- LITTLE DROID BLUE
I started off with a basic concept for a more evolved type of baby and started by blocking a basic baby shape in and doing blocks of colour, gradually blending and seeing what ideas took shape
Then I started filling in the background and adding some more details and started to find a more sinister meaning to the piece.
I imagined this baby now as a prisoner in an android universe where humans are kept as slaves or fodder. The midwife was now going to be an android and the crib going to have bars on, to emphasise the feelings of imprisonment. I also used a garish colourscheme, to emphasise the feeling of unease and to further convey the feelings of upset and anger a baby is meant to feel when born.
I then decided to add to the ominous feeling by brightening the contrast and adding some more details like an android attaching an anklet with a designated number in "androidenese" to complete the "enslaved at birth" feel.
I then made the hands look more metallic, and added a lot of details for extra realism.
The garish colour scheme also feels very dazzling and oppressive.
Et voila! Attachment 738629
