ConceptartCohesion #001: 8th Day
The year 2446 CE.
Mankind and its technology have advanced at an exponential rate, however trivial political, religious and social demands have caused the splintering of former superpowers into smaller nation states, pitting themselves against each in a number of minor conflicts.
Since 2395 a minimum of 27 conflicts, hostile incursions and border disputes have been raging in various confined areas across the planets surface, sparking a new global economy.
Covenants of major corporations have banded together in various factions and are now the true international players, feeding the ever increasing demand of new weapons technology.
The change in style of warfare has rendered weapons of mass destruction virtually useless increasing an appetite for more unconventional weapon systems, specifically the VidaNova Corporations newest developments in the field of creating new species of animals bred for specific purposes.
The idea behind this new move is too harness the animals natural intelligence, sensory abilities, and ability to traverse difficult terrain. They are currently working on models for civilian implementation, ranging from beasts of burden for remote areas to leisure models as pets. However there have been worrying reports of certain products escaping from captivity, and having unexpected effects on the flora and fauna they interact with, conspiracy theorists place blame on a huge range of subjects, ranging from the Cytarabinoside used in manipulating metabolic pathways in the animals, to mother earth resting control back from humanity to satan himself.
Some minor political and religious groups are already rallying, trying to bring this series of unnerving events to the public eye, wild rumors and conspiracy theories are already calling this the 8th day of creation.
Mother Machine - The Birthplace and nurturer of all the genetic childern. Mother Machine is responsible for the caring, hatching and growth of all breeds. A mammoth of size and a true marvel of technological feats. Mother Machine, is a true vision to stand before. While Mother Machine is stationary(non-mobile), she does have defensive measures; such as automated turrets and threat sensors.

I definately have to get in on this - I can't wait to get started!
quick question -
should the final artwork be a glamour/enviorment view of the machine, or should it be more detailed with elevations and callout details like an engineering package???

Jonoy - thanks for the feedback! I figured that would be the answer!!
I am struggleing with how to capture the details i would like to include as well as the massive scale.... maybe I just need some inset images....decisions, decisions!
Hideyoshi - awesome sketch.... I was on your website yesterday, damn you rock! can't wait to see what you put together for the final submission.....

thanks Foz, panagos, rob-ot!I am already working on a complete new design. :-)
You should definitely check out the big industrial design-background-guys who really have the knowhow abut his kind of stuff.
Feng's old website used to feature his old marker renderings, I had luckily saved them up at that time- great inspirations... :-)
But I have another guy for you who has some totally badass skills when it comes to ID...
I personally think he is better than Feng.
but you should also know these guys:

hope that helps!

Nice start Hide. I hope the new organized effort works out. I cant say anything tho, cause I havent been a factor, at all.
Loved the links. I was especially taken in by Kang's work, but all three were excellant to look through.
I only live for today, but I'm one day behind.
