i decided to do something a bit out of the ordinary, deliberating on the idea of something that is both organic and mechanical i came up with my concept. man combined with machine has become quite a classic sci fi theme so i decided to take it one step further and thought : what if even a being like God had some sort of mechanical enhancements? what would it take to make something omnipresent and all seeing. i dont mean to offend anyone, its just fanciful speculation... this is my first idea for the pic but it'll probebly evolve as i go along...

Sweeet. Typical stuff from you my man. Guess I should have figured you would do something that had godhood as a theme. Egomaniacal freak that you are.

Send me my work damn it!! Been waiting for a week.

Cheers buddy. Looks cool

heres my first concept in colour, a person looking up at the sky and God staring down at him through a funky looking telescope with all sorts of mechanical odds and ends to it...

i like this man. you got an abstract aproach (or it looks it from this concept). Is the telescope going to be attached to flesh?

i think i am gonna take more of an abstract approach but it will still be attatched to flesh, im also gonna do a more detailed pic of Gods machine so that the viewer gets more of an idea of whats going on, it will be the next pic i do...
thanks for the encouragement everyone...

Very cool as always. Just remember the machine-flesh aspect, I'm not sure what they want exactly but a metaphysical deity kitted out with a built in zoom lens that isn't obvious might be a bit cerebral.

That was my pompous way of saying they may want to see the co-existence of machinery and flesh. Maybe a pipe connecting the guy to the god?

You've got a nice sense of composition. I like the subtle color variation and texture work.

Good work !

Wow really like your style and coloring, Emrys has shown me some of your other work and I am really keen on seeing this one when it is finished, the only concern that i have is will it fit in to the machine flesh idea. BUt other than that is brilliant makes me want to work harder on mine.

Good luck

here is the beginning of my final linework drawing for the challenge... its basically God connected to a bunch of pipes and stuff... there will be other things happening in the drawing to.
no where near the colouring stage yet but i'm really enjoying this. had a bit of a dry patch with drawing lately but it seems to be cured...

I still really dig the first color concept you did more. This one is coming a long nice...I guess I'll just have to wait and see how it turns out in color/comp.
