    The professor witnessed his creation working on itself, finishing what he had started.
    He could not even consider the possibilities of what he created.

    EDIT FINAL:

    EDIT: I received some nice feedback and I decided to change some stuff. I think it's ok since the poll thread is not created yet.

    CHOW #34 - VOTING - Morganica - 1930's - the 1st Android

    I did it, I've used my whole life to complete it. Yesterday, while I was painted her face, it moved, it bloody moved !
    I told it to sleep, shut it down, plugged in the cable to recharge her. I was sleepy.

    The next morning,

    I woke up. It was noisy. I opened my eyes and there it was. "My little child", and a lot of smoke.
    I see she's trying to walk. Her back is faced at me. I can see she's having trouble with walking. She's just like an innocent newborn child who knows nothing at all. It still has to grow and it needs guidance.

    It noticed my presence and turned her face at me. Staring with a face like it has a lot of questions about things she doesn't understand.

    I grabbed my hat and jacket, dressing her up. You wouldn't want a naked smoking android walking through your house do you? I lifted up my arms doing a pose like "what now?". Then it happened...

    It copied me !! She used one of her arms to copy my pose !! (my piece captures the moment) This is AMAZING !!! I'm so amazed my mouth fell open. I can see lots of interesting and fun days awaiting us. I want to see how she'll develop. Let's go my sweet little Morganica...

    my final.... (what a progress from my last wip)
    CHOW #34 - VOTING - Morganica - 1930's - the 1st Android


    Dark thoughts were in his mind...
    Everything else around him just vanished asif it was an illusion!
    He only saw his creation standing in front of him.
    Things went in a flash through his mind.
    He knew that he'd created something that noone else had ever created before.
    The fine craftsmanship has to be thanked for because of his sernior blacksmith crew.
    Also possebilities came up in his mind.
    Making wealth with it?.. fame?.... army?..... or even world domination.....
    The only thing he could conclude was that is was real....

    This is my Final.

    CHOW #34 - VOTING - Morganica - 1930's - the 1st Android

    Sparks flew and lights twitched, the thing had awoken..finally after all this time he had done it, he had created the first android. Morganica sat up on her cold table, turned her head to track the only warm, living thing in the room, her creator. Master and puppet, both locked in an intense unbreakable stare, thoughts running riot through each of there minds.

    Here's my final:
    CHOW #34 - VOTING - Morganica - 1930's - the 1st Android
    From the Journal of Dr. Edward Fitzpatrick (1887-1931)
    Thursday March 15, 1928 - A tragedy
    Today, my daughter Morgane fell ill with pneumonia, the doctors aren't sure if she'll even last the night. All I can do is pray, I feel so helpless... she's only 17, why did it have to happen to someone so young?

    Monday March 19, 1928 - Things are looking up
    They released Morgane from the hospital today, she's not fully recovered, but the doctors say with some bed rest and relaxation she'll make a full recovery in a few days.

    Tuesday March 20, 1928 - A dark day
    Those damn doctors, curse them all, how could they let her die, how could they let my baby die. [Words Unintelligable, many scratched out beyond recognition]

    Thursday November 15, 1928 - I have discovered a way
    I will bring her back, I have found the way, there is hope. I don't know how far this will take me, but I will bring her back.

    [Many months, entries, and years go by in the journals, many failed experiments, many failed tries.]

    Monday May 18, 1931 - It works!
    How appropriate, today would have been her 21st birthday. It's been over 3 years since she left me, but she finally came back last night. My baby has returned to me, but she's different...so different, but she's my baby. I will call her Morganica.

    [Several months pass, and he grows accustomed to his new daughter. He keeps her within the house because he knows that the world would not understand.]

    Wednesday September 16, 1931 - It can't
    It can't be happening again, I can't lose my baby again. They found out about her, they won't let her be, I must get her out of here. We must run away where we can never be found.

    [Three days later the corpse of Dr. Edward Fitzpatrick, and what remained of his 'Morganica' were found in the woods by some hunters. Dr. Edward Fitzpatrick had died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the right temple. 'Morganica' must have been dismantled elsewhere, some parts were never found, and evidence she had been dragged was present in the mud nearby. 'Morganica' never functioned again despite many efforts to rebuild her.]

    ------

    Updated Wednesday Thursday July 20, 2006.

    My goal with doing the weekly exercises is to learn and refine. So in all of my images I will be trying to work on something that I feel I need to improve. C&C very welcome.

    Final image for the activity, though I'm seriously contemplating taking it farther later.
    CHOW #34 - VOTING - Morganica - 1930's - the 1st Android

    "The inventor had worked for close to two decades trying to realize Capek's vision of the robot. The obsession was to prove both his greatest boon and bane however, when the Great Depression claimed the life of his daughter Morgan. The work kept him functional, but his grief and burning need to see his daughter again made him consider the unnatural. On a fateful day in 1935, working with the same feverish mad genius Shelley had ascribed to Frankenstein, he used elecricity to copy the contents of his dead daughter's mind to the android shell. Somehow, it worked. the diodes and vacuum tubes that had been barely motive before, began to move more and more smoothly. Soon the metal girl was moving with the same dancers grace and elegance of his lost daughter- not quite her, but close enough that he thought her ghost must be part of her"

    I tried to evoke some art deco statuettes I had looked up images of and their flowing dancer lines, while adding an obvious dose of early 20th century technology in the joints and glowing vacuum tubes.

    FINAL:

    CHOW #34 - VOTING - Morganica - 1930's - the 1st Android

    The professor felt something gnawing deep within his guts, the sound of his creation, his life’s work, screaming a curdling metallic cry from downstairs, cutting through the night like a scalpel through an eyeball.

    "No no no, this is Wrong! This was never meant to be, it wasn't supposed to ever LIVE. They will be after me now for sure, and it...."

    CLANG

    He was commissioned to design an "android" by the government as the stench of war seeped slowly under the countries door. But he wasn’t supposed to build it - not yet!

    CLANG

    "The bloody thing is nuclear! And nobody knows about it except me"

    CLANG

    "Its not ready, I was going to shut it down after the last “accident” – no more people can die at the hands of this thing!

    CREAK


    The nuclear power when linked to “her” brain inside the machine were way too volatile a combination… Sometimes I believe she is tormenting me, coming back… no NO!

    BZZt...
    HELLOoo DAaRLING bzTtt


    …may god have mercy on all our souls..."

Hope you don't leave those legs out in the finish, it's looking a little top heavy right now. Eriboss, can't wait to see.

    CHOW #34 - VOTING - Morganica - 1930's - the 1st Android
    Augustus Lodwick, an empoverished british inventor, lost his wife to tuberculosis the winter of 1930. He gathered his belongings and moved to New York with his daughter, Morrigan. Upon his arrival, and thanks to a few contacts, he landed a job as a professor of science at NYU. Absorbed by his work, he failed to notice Morrigan's symptoms until it was too late. She died on a rainy night, plunging the professor into a deep depression that drove him mad. Overcome with grief, he gathered what he could of his daughters remains, with the intention of bringing her back to life. He was unable to preserve her organs, but her brain he managed to keep alive. He brought her back, inside the shell of her favorite porcelain doll, along with an intricate construction of wires, cogs, and unimaginable mechanisms even he could not remember how to make. Once the deed was done, and he only waited for the spark of life to manifest in her, he fell asleep, only to dream of the horror he had brought upon the face of earth.
