    DSG 800: Sci-Fi Weirdness: BIOMECHANICAL VORTEX

    .
    [Erm... Well, you all probably have a notion of the term "biomechanical", and, of course, a vortex is like a whirlpool or tornado... a swirling force. Okay, so... Join the two and you might get something weird. I think you get it, right? Good!]

    First sketch in, yo...



    The trees on the 5th planet of the centaurii system exhibited unusual amounts of bioluminescence, as well as a metallic sheen to their leaves. For a while, no one was quite sure whether they were grown or built... Every now and again, whether because of a passing comet, extra rain or whatever reason, an odd disturbance erupts between two trees, whether for reproductive purposes, a portal between worlds, or odd wind patterns, no one is sure...

    (n_n) Kinda like how it came out. No idea how long I spent, likely 2 hours.

    The extremely rare Metaveritas vortexus is an intergalactic arthropod that is capable of a biomechanical process used to create a pseudo-blackhole. Though this process is not yet understood, scientists have theorized that the blackhole is used to trap and condense antimatter, which the creature uses as a fuel source. (This is the only known image of an adult female.)

    1.5hrs in photoshop, used google pic of lightening as a ref

    Hehehehe, I had a lot of fun with this one.


    After numerous scoldings for playing around the "funny rock", Jr. disobeyed his mother for the last time, as he ran up and pushed the shiny red button.

    About an hour, Painter IX. I am getting faster .

    Xenos , when I first looked at your picture, I thought, errrm, nevermind . Anyway, it is really awesome, I don't know where you found the time to paint for 8.5 hours! . I love your work man, keep it up.

    Machzero , I love the blender idea .

    Unleashed Very cool stuff, flawless. Love the swirl effect.

    biomechanical vortex




    Jewl - Nice concept I can see the ridges shifting and swirling.
    machzero - cool, like the tonal values.
    Hamsta - would like to see more color
    xenos - great technique, unique concept
    NKunleashed - like the echo of appendages/lightning
    Shaky - "No! Don't touch the red button! You'll kill us all" bunny whirlpool

    jabberwookie It's not at all dark. The blackness sets a sort-of ominous mood. Excellent job.

    Nineve Very cool, like the swirly eye. I presume this was a photo manipulation?

    machzero - Cute. I've really been enjoying your forays into colour, though... Keep that up!
    xenos - Absolutely my fave today. Despite some of the rough areas you mentioned, the immediate (and lasting) impact of this pic is excellent. Cool concept (He could shoot large missiles out of his chest if the armory is transdimensional... might be a fun platformer?), great use of colour, perspective, and lighting (and hottie). Long time to work on a dsg, though... yikes.
    NKunleashed - I dig it.
    Shaky - Ohh! Bunny!
    jabberwookie - Seems to me like maybe the biomechanical portion of this could've been darker... subtler... to keep the focus on the vortex and figure, and keep the light source localized. Nice vortex and silhouetted figure, though.
    Nineve - Hmmm... Well, that's a lot more filtery effects than I like to see generally... However, I think it's actually pretty successful anyway. Not so sure I like that weird little chunky thing on the lower left of his face, but if it wasn't there I might miss it. Cool.

    This one didn't really turn out the way I'd imagined it. No depth to it, and that's key to what I'd intended. tch.

    Nineve I don't like this one (don't like mine either.) I think it looks very amatuerish with it's over use of filters, the vortex "eye" is totally disconnected from the rest. The large vortex is centered between his mouth and nose - why?
    What is that wierdness that Bill mentioned? (the one under his right eye)

    At 3:58 am Professor Von-clockn’block discovered how to open the vortex to “>>Another Dimension<<” little did he know what was on the other side of the bio mechanize vortex…. .. .



    Cheers~

    Tim

    P.S

    This gave me an idea for another DGS… perhaps “The Wrong Dimension”
