    Character of the Week #308
    The Infected Scientist
    Deadline - Sunday, December 2 10PM GMT


    It is the year 2015, a meteor has smashed into the earth infecting most of the population with an alien bacteria.
    As the alien bacteria continues to spread at an alarming rate, the head of Disease Control, Dr. Greenwood,
    is working around the clock to formulate a cure. But having been infected by the alien bacteria and displaying
    symptoms never seen before, Dr. Greenwood's time is running out!

    Your task this week is to design the Infected Scientist, Dr. Greenwood. How much or how little the infection has
    spread is up to you, but it must be obvious that our poor scientist has been infected by the alien bacteria.


    The Guidelines:
    • Can be any gender
    • Must still be able to perform scientific tasks while infected


    The Rules
    • Finals must be posted in the finals thread before the deadline
    • Final post must include the CHoW number and the artists username at the bottom of the image
    • At least 3/4 of the character must be visible
    • At least two wips posted in the finals thread
    • Background is optional
    • Have fun!

    Hi!
    Does the Rule #3: "3/4 of the character has to be visible" require three quarters of the character's recognizably human anatomy to be visible or does that mean that the character cannot be obscured by scenery, ie lab equipment or life-support equipment etc?

    Gaspard The 3/4 rule applies to CHoW in general. So if you decide to include lab equipment, etc, 3/4s of the character must be visible so we can see the design. Hope that helps.

    Maybe I'll finish this one.

    My initial concept here was to go the bug-infection-ey route, which it seems some others are already doing. That becomes an issue of who's got the most well-rendered version of that particular concept.

    My next thought was informed by the "Can be any gender" part of the guidelines. Not either gender, but any gender. When considering the nature of a truly alien virus, all bets are off insofar as how that would effect a host, eg. What systems would be affected.

    Would the virus be entirely degenerative and mutative, or is it possible that the virus would be experiential, in that it would alter the hosts' body and mind that the 'victim' would have a singular opportunity to explore an entirely new state of awareness and being previously unheard of?

    very cool stuff so far guys! this is my start, i thought it would be cool if this scenario was similar to district 9, where this alien bacteria would act as some kind of catalyst and cause the infected's genome to start to rewrite itself as the alien's genome. basically turning us into them to make for a more peaceful takeover of the planet. but most of the humans on the planet were unable to cope with the bacteria and suffered agonizing deaths. then the dr. got infected, and finally found a way to stabalize the reaction, giving him certain alien characteristics, yet remaining partially human as well. he is testing the new strength he has received as part of the new DNA sequence...
