    Oxygen King
    (as in all mankind must get their air through him)
    from the suggestion thread. Thx Stephan R

    he didn't asked for it. he had no ideea what will he be turned into. he forgot how it came to this and when his life become meaningless to him... and everything for the rest of them. why?
    Now... concept!

    i love your concept and you put a lot of work into it - however your drawing is flat. You need to separate the planes - whats close vs what's far.
    Also... the biggest problem - your values and shapes. You need VOLUME - mak eeach element look 3D. Make your picture B&W and see your values.

    CHOW #42 - VOTING - Oxygen King
    just as above - yet you put less work into yours see your values and shapes. bring strenght to you form.

    CHOW #42 - VOTING - Oxygen King
    uh.. difficult task you had - all glowie and lots of lights.
    my advice - try to put more work on it. clean it up.. it's a bit messy - all your strokes are kinda strong and .. not too ordered. Make your strokes careful, following the shape. Your values need more work too but you are on the good path.

    CHOW #42 - VOTING - Oxygen King
    oh.. this was hard to reject. you worked A LOT on this and the concept is cool too.
    you need to clean it up and to see your values. You can not have so much black in there... try to have the whole range of your values. If you work in color - don;t use black to lower your value. See the Peer Project in the weekly activities.



    Close to rejection:
    CHOW #42 - VOTING - Oxygen King
    a bit messy..

    CHOW #42 - VOTING - Oxygen King
    saturation, form and values... but... it made it.


    and the winner is... Andrew Ley . Congrats man... KEEP'EM COMMIN'

    EDIT
    heres a little wip snapshot
    enjoy
    CHOW #42 - VOTING - Oxygen King

    FINAAAAAALLLLLLL
    " date 2259: planet: UW c238: this is only the second planet we had found with any sort of atmosphere in this system.
    had i know how bad the first 3 years of terraforming had gone i probably wouldnt have taken the job. but 9 years later im still here
    ive begun to feel less and less due to the strain of breathing this harsh atmosphere but because of my over exposure
    im one of the few that can breathe unassisted in the open. i believe it is changing me.i have already lost my right arm, replaced by this clumsy electromag excavator. the ice deposits that i have been tasked to find are getting fewer and far between. i alone have been responsible for the last 6 finds but it still isnt enough. the public sees me as a hero, they have dubbed me the oxygen king
    but i fear the deposits will run out soon. maybe 6 months to a year before we run out if i cant find any others
    we are so secluded here i doubt evac could make it in time if at all. do i tell my people? or do i keep looking?
    either way i feel we are doomed
    no ice no oxygen no oxygen no life
    i miss my children, my wife, i hope they understand what im trying to do "

    Hey, it's my first submitted CHOW!

    He's married to the Carbon Queen.
    CHOW #42 - VOTING - Oxygen King

    "You don't know 'bout the Oh-two King? Larry, where've you been since the Big Ozone Collapse? His the richest freakin man in the Federation! Nobody thought he would make it when he started selling freaking OXYGEN, but then with the Collapse and all, the market was skyrocketing!"

    EDIT: Reactions to suddenly appearing submissions.

    Trevor: Cool!
    Durin: Poor guy! I still have to pop in in your SB..
    Fuuryoku: Wow, very special idea!
    Eric Gerhard: Doesn't look much like a king, but cool nonetheless.
    Faroresama: Poor Tom... "In retail", haha!

    Oh, and completely off topic: what the HELL's this supposed to be? "Nintendo"? How is that nintendo?

    From the description provided, I got the feeling that he is a torn character, ripped by his concience, pierced by guilt. I'm trying to get that feeling into my concept.

    The Oxygen King: Aaron King, CEO of Oxxen Oxygen Harvesting Corp.

    As CEO of the multinational company Oxxen, Aaron King has become the most powerfull man on earth.
    His career made a rather strange twist of fate. If we go down the records, we find out that Aaron King was an ecology specialist, very concerned with climate problems, global warming and other signs of disastrous problems regarding the state our planet was in. His point of view was, that the whole planet was controlled by a few big players and he hated this profoundly. By the time that mankind had nearly destroyed it's own habitat, King had built out a vast network of laboratories and research centers around the globe in search for oxygen filtering and production methods, as war had contaminated most of the world's air.
    This is about the time he made friends with the wrong people. They forced him into becoming the man he now is. The only true ruler of the planet, attached to the strings of others. Blinded at first, he now sees what has become of him, the only thing he never wanted to be. The terror of the small man, proclaimed king by a vast amount of suckups, but chained in his palace, an empty shell... thus living his worst nightmare.

    CHOW #42 - VOTING - Oxygen King

    In a deforested future, still powered by carbon, it became apparent that oxygen was becoming an invaluable commodity, much as water had been in the century before and oil in the century before that.

    Anticipating the trend, Lord Javor consolidated his power by gaining the most direct control possible over that vital resource. Step one was a course of genetic and cybernetic alterations in which he converted his respiration system to expel O2. Step two was the eradication of every other oxygen source through the buyout and intentional drought of chloroplast farms. The bottleneck in oxygen distribution caused a global collapse of civilization and the die-off of everyone unable to reach shelter in his fortress. Tank hauling platoons were able to make temporary trips outside, working the fields for food production and extending Javor's power beyond the throne room, but for the most part he had to distribute oxygen directly to his subjects.

    Now, in order to keep his tiny feudal economy running he must devote every minute to keeping his subjects breathing, either directly or by tending to storage devices. Soon, he thinks, he will give up and rest. As he slowly starves to death, he will take pleasure in the fact that no one remains who can dethrone the Oxygen King.

    "One hundred years it had taken him. One hundred years of sleeping, his feet in the ever more polluted earth. He had seen what was coming. he had seen that the air would turn to poison, and that the leaders that were would do nothing. there was only one terrible course to take. He changed himself, becoming both animal and plant, and over the course of a century he slept in a secluded valley, until he had grown large enough to stride the earth, devouring the poisons- now harmless to him- leaving the purified air for the survivors who now deferred to him as thier new anointed sovereign."

    Good luck for everybody.
    CHOW #42 - VOTING - Oxygen King

    (edit) Ok, here is the description:

    He gave his life to save mankind. In the 24th century, nuclear war had vanished most of the gases important for natural life on Earth. This great cientist knew that nothing could create and control a massive power of electricity to make oxygen. He turned himself into a living and concious energy core. He could now spend great amounts of electricity and control it without blowing him out. Through this act of pure love and desperation to save his so beloved homeworld, an enormous amount of the small rest of the world's population, bowed to his knees when he "asked" to be the ruler of the planet (most did because they were afraid of his giant power). Henceforth he'd be known as the King Oxygen.

    Hey everyone - gonna give it another go... thumbs so far - I'm drawing and watching Adult Swim tonight heh

    CHOW #42 - VOTING - Oxygen King

    I miss my pens

    (edit!) THIS IS MY FINAL - linework with copic multiliners on illustration board, with preliminary color block-ins w/ watercolor pencil and a final layer of gouache...

    CHOW #42 - VOTING - Oxygen King

    The story: The term "king" is really just an inflated and nostalgic term these days, granted to figureheads who have mostly corporations working in their guise. This "king" is one of the last of his species - a species that can convert the acidic atmosphere of this destroyed planet into pure breatheable oxygen. For this reason he was mutilated (as not to escape!), experimented upon, and shoved full of hoses so that his company "Oxygen King" can faithfully deliver oxygen to its customers.

    Feel sorry for him, won't you?!? I wish I had more time for this, I would've spent waaaay more time on the background, etc. Good luck to everyone!

    I'm picturing more like the baron off of DUNE... some rich politician in 2080 controls all the breathable air, and is therefore proclaimed king.
