The scientists at the Moseby Center for the Study of Artificial Life are very excited today, as the announcement of the first bio mechanical marine life form is finally giving birth. After many unsuccessful tries, the baby appears to be healthy and they are hoping to extract her today. "The implications, the experiments, we can't wait to see how she came out, what she's really made of!" one scientist said. There are reports of the "mother" of the mechanism lashing out and injuring scientists, as she has had over 300 miscarriages and is reported to be "unusually protective". Security at the Moseby Center assures that everything is under control.
Here's my final entry. It's not quite done, but it was a fun exercise doing something completely crazy.
The term newborn is interpreted here in quite a surreal manner. It's about the birth of a new hope in a world which is about to fall into complete chaos (apocalypse). Other than that it encompasses many different symbols of what I relate to "birth".
I'll post the finished piece some time later this month.
Hi everyone Some phenomenal entries in here! I have one piece for the contest below. Good luck to everyone!
The painting is intended to be about the reinvigoration of a dessicated bone field, dead and barren from a battle that took place long before. The two figures are Life Wardens (akin to a druid, perhaps), mother and daughter, both investing in renewing life from the bones and earth through magic, or by just tending to it as the child is doing. In the background are the more idyllic lands on the boundary of the bone field from where they've come.
Tonic, I think yours is my favorite concept out of all of them. I've always been intrigued by the legend of Yggdrasil and you illustrated it beautifully and mystically. Good luck to everyone! Mine feels so inferior to all these entries haha!
