Amazing work everyone!
had a blast!
Heres what I got done in time! SO many good entries, good idea for making this thread.
Final for the Newborn Contest. Phoenix bringing new life to the Android girl, rebuilding her heart.
My first post on Conceptart.org Here is what I did. Hope its ok.
My concept of my Newborn entry is based on the story of the 'Polong', a Malaysian folklore creature. In a nutshell, my Newborn is a creature created by a black magic practitioner formed out of a murderer's blood. The blood is put into a bottle and dark incantations are cited to bring forth its existence. After a period, crying sounds will be audible from the bottle, and the owner will then have to feed the Polong blood from his finger. The Polong will then be summoned for evil intentions by the Master.
Based on information gathered from the web and that which explains elements in my illustration, here are some keywords...
- unseen ghost/invisible/never seen before- could be very unreal and doesn't have to make sense, hence the smoky, ghostly effect
- neither human nor demon, hence bits of animal parts, human parts, and plant parts
- crying sounds, hence the tears
- bird noises , hence the bird
- accompanied by a Pelesit, that is said to resemble a cricket (drawn by the head).
The Pelesit would burrow a hole into the victim, and the Polong would enter the hole.
For the "razor sharp tail", i used the shape of a keris since it's very symbolic of the Malaysian culture. I also used the hilt of a keris at the claw.
Here's my final work, good luck to everyone!!
So here's my final entry. I hope you all like it. I have enjoyed the other pictures. Some are simply amazing and all show great creativity.
