    IDW #113: Cyborg Prosthetics

    Topic: Cyborg Prosthetics

    Background: This weeks topic is where humans meet technology -literally. The idea of supplementing or replacing human body parts with artificial parts isn't new, in fact the idea of pirates with a wooden peg for a leg has been around for centuries probably. However, with current and future technology, the possibilities are sheer endless.

    Before everyone goes off and starts drawing the next Borg, please consider what the cyborg parts could be used for and why people use them besides the obvious extra strengh and power or as a weapon. Maybe they can make some look more beautiful (much like Plastic Surgery for example) or to give some extra arms to perform a certain duty. Or have the human parts supplement the machine, in which case the whole machine would be the prosthetic.

    I'll interpret the term 'prosthetic' a bit wide here, as it literally means replacing missing body parts rather than adding new ones. Don't go overboard though, it should still clearly be part of a human or cyborg.

    Feel free to design a whole cyborg by the way, though you can just stick to the actual prosthetic if you want.

    Brief:
    1. Design and draw one or more Cyborg Prosthetics!
    2. That's it... now draw!

    Deadline: Saturday, October 10

    Hi hi, I'm scribbling away on a finished piece right now, here are some drafts.

    I'm going for a prosthetic skull. It's various parts are articulated allowing it to grow and change shape to suit the user's cosmetic needs.

    Raises some major practical issues, I know... installation for a start. Could be for those with severe deformities, injuries or for secret agents in need of a disguise that goes beyond skin deep.

    @MarkDN: Your skull looks great. I love the details in them. Can't wait to see your next post.

    As for me, I go a bit out there with Afro prosthetic for portable storage space... also improve your memory!
