    CHoW#234:: Gods of Media and Technology

    CHoW#234:: Gods of Media and Technology



    ROUND #234 :: The Gods of Media and Technology


    DESCRIPTION


    The Gods of Media and Technology


    In ancient cultures, there existed many gods who represented different aspects of everyday life: Apollo, god of music, Amaterasu, goddes of the sun, Osiris, god of death etc. What if this polytheistic system of gods and guardians still existed today? What would these modern gods look like?

    Design a god/guardian of modern media and/or technology.

    Examples:

    Goddess of mobile phoning
    Guardian of internet
    Goddess of videogames
    God of magazines
    Guardian of television etc.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Media




    • Can be male or female
    • The setting is modern time, style can be anything!
    • Pick a modern technology and let this inspire your design
    • Give him/her appropriate attributes (like Zeus, god of thunder, usually carries a thunderbolt).


    Good luck!

    6) PLACE THE IMAGE IN A FRAME WITH YOUR NAME/TOPIC


    CHoW#234:: Gods of Media and Technology
    (you can add CA logo, etc).



    About quality - as general rule: if your shapes and values are not decent - you are out. Watch proportions, perspective etc. we need perfectly readable shapes and coherent, consistent values.

    _____________

    BE PROFESSIONAL - only finished and good quality entries will be taken to the poll. Icemoon and Arthemis IX will make the selection.
    Please review these helpful reminders if you have not done so already.

    the last 3 topics have been really interesting. Definitely going to give this one a shot.

    It's a pretty vast idea.
