View Full Version : Machineflesh 2D Challenge Entry: Kirt Stanke

03 March 2004, 01:33 AM
Kirt Stanke has entered the Machineflesh 2D Challenge.

03 March 2004, 03:05 AM
I'm not exactly sure what I'm going to do yet, but my first idea would be to do something that addresses homelessness. I'm thinking a self contained unit/person that recycles trash and/or their own waste to be used as energy to keep them alive, warm and a functional part of their society.

I'll have to get to sketching to see if this works out into something or I end up taking a different approach to this challenge. It's definately going to be fun.

C'ya :beer:

03 March 2004, 11:43 PM
:D Hello dear Kirt, I'm sitting right here to watch your move! Let's have fun.

03 March 2004, 05:30 AM
Good luck mate ;)

I'm on it too, eheh it's been such a long time

03 March 2004, 09:50 AM
good luck Kirt! can't wait to see what you come up with :beer:

03 March 2004, 10:50 PM (

First sketch with just some basic ideas thrown down. Expect a lot of changes and possibly a completely different idea from me.

Nature of the beast ... I seldom hit on something that I like the first, second or twentieth time I sketch. :D

Thanks for your support friends.

03 March 2004, 11:24 PM
O_o It's a great design!!

The best: the internal combustion motor.:applause:

03 March 2004, 03:47 AM
excellent design, could imagine this dude protecting his part of the nuclear wastelands.
He needs some tattoos

Nice one!!

03 March 2004, 07:33 AM
Looking good, one of the better concepts here.

03 March 2004, 08:40 AM
Nice one kirt, looking forward to seeing the next update.

Good luck btw

03 March 2004, 09:55 AM
Hi Kirt................That's a very well thought out "Fresh" concept..........Lot's of detail.Internal combustion is a first,good one...................:cool: :beer:

03 March 2004, 01:39 PM
Ah, found it! Just setting up my camp Kirt, can't wait:thumbsup:

03 March 2004, 01:43 PM
Wow, great work! wanna see more!!:bounce:

03 March 2004, 02:26 PM
wooha.. ca't wait to see more of this.. :surprised

03 March 2004, 03:54 PM (

This one is a bit of wishful thinking on my behalf. I've been raising kids for the past 9 years (9 years of diaper changing - pew!).

Not a serious idea, just having a bit of fun. I have 3 months ... expect a bit of goofing off. Hehehehe

03 March 2004, 03:58 PM (

And one more idea I had (inspired by a gamer that I work with). This one actually isn't too bad for a final concept.

I might toy around with this one a bit more. Still debating which I'll go with for my final entry (homeless guy or the GameBoy).

03 March 2004, 04:39 PM
WOW! I love the little baby! ha ha ... nice! :)

03 March 2004, 06:40 PM

i love the toxic waste outlet on the baby!!

The new 'easy-care' baby system...

03 March 2004, 06:48 PM
Hi Kirt

Nice to see you in here and nice and funny concepts thou non of them convinces me but I know there are coming lots more :)

03 March 2004, 07:17 PM
Wow Ive seen some disturbingly ugly babies in my time but that takes the cake!

03 March 2004, 07:27 PM
I second clepto on that one.

My boyfriend wanted the gaming upgrade...

03 March 2004, 07:56 PM
We meet again :D

Funny ideas, though I find the baby to be rather disturbing:surprised
I'm looking forward to seeing what you cook up this time:beer:

03 March 2004, 08:41 PM
The suggestion for the baby toxic waste could change the world! :D

03 March 2004, 10:57 PM (

Another idea ...
This one is a bodyguard for nerds. The machinery isn't as evident in this I'd have to redesign more for the challenge.

But basically, the body suit worn by Poindexter controls the body movements of a large host-bodyguard (ex football player or wrestler).

03 March 2004, 12:03 AM
As a father of a child, I think your 'baby Idea' is absolutly fantastic! :-D your best on this.

03 March 2004, 01:10 AM
Funny concept, i especially love the gameboy system, simple and great idea :D

03 March 2004, 01:54 PM

I love u:love:

Damn this will be a hard challenge. So many creative entries. And Kirt no crits from me right now. U now I love your stuff:thumbsup:

AP - Alemeda, CA

2020, the year of clear vision, it's ironic that morality reaches a new level of obscurity. Applied Robotics Institute of Alemeda (ARIA) Engineers are arrested for running an underground robotics cock-fighting ring. Animal rights activists have become enraged at the senseless and cruel mutilations of live chickens that have been augmented with robotic battle enhancements.

"It's just sick." stated a member of PETA, "These techno-geeks have taken the sport of BattleBots and perversly married it to the already illegal activity of cock-fighting. It's a sad day for animal activists and the human race as a whole. I mean ... what's next? Whale/submarine racing?"

Representatives from ARIA could not be reached for comment.

Introducing the gas powered beaver!
Loved by lumberjackers everywhere!

03 March 2004, 09:11 PM
Hahahaha that beaver is simpley brilliant :bounce:

03 March 2004, 09:26 PM
6th sketch = GREAT! couldnt stop laughing...

03 March 2004, 09:32 PM
I love the lumberjack! :D

03 March 2004, 02:15 AM
LOL.. Im lovin the beaver being canadian and all..
the chickens great too!!

03 March 2004, 02:22 AM
the scientist gets a ten outa ten too lol

03 March 2004, 05:10 AM
Wow, those are some awesome ideas, and pieces...I was thinking about possible uber gamer ones...but I lack the style.

Tommy Lee
03 March 2004, 05:27 AM

The Beaver is my favorite.....excellent:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:



03 March 2004, 07:22 AM
The chicken is great. You could take 2 bionic chickens and throw in some bionically adjusted homeless men around the edges of a small cock fighting ring.


03 March 2004, 07:24 AM
Thanks! I think I am going to go with the beaver idea. It had me chuckling as well. I noticed a couple other chickens being done already so that one gets ruled out immediately.

I'm going to start fleshing out the lumberjack character and maybe some more detail drawings of the beaver. Then I'll get to work on composition and some sort of final layout.

03 March 2004, 08:07 AM
Go Kirt!!!
That beaver is an excellent idea. Very, very funny :thumbsup:

Just make sure there will be some major mechanical adjustments on the beaver, or it will only be a concept of a lumberjack, using a beaver as a chainsaw.

03 March 2004, 10:17 AM
they're all great kirt!!


03 March 2004, 10:27 AM
That beaveridea is hilerious! I will enjoy following the progress on that one.
You´re a very sick man!

03 March 2004, 02:49 PM
Really like your concept... they are original, well drawn and funny!!! Congratulation :thumbsup:

03 March 2004, 06:53 PM
kirt in action.. who can stop him? :D

love the beaver kirt... great idea and drawing, i can literally hear him hacking away :thumbsup:

03 March 2004, 08:27 PM
LOVE it! RFLMAO!!!! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

03 March 2004, 09:20 PM
Kirt, you're a genius and a sick bastard!

The motorized beaver is great! It would be really cool to make this look like some sort of advertisement. I'm pretty sure there's not a single high-gloss Lumberjack Magazine who wouldn't love to publish it ;)

03 March 2004, 12:06 AM
magicm - No fair reading my mind. I was just about to do up a layout design for the beaver ad.

03 March 2004, 02:46 AM
Hmmmm, Kirt...

Location: lotsa' cows, CA

Ontario? Chino Hills? :curious:

03 March 2004, 06:07 AM
There's cows in LA too? Dang, they must have migrated south through the grapevine during the winter. :D

03 March 2004, 10:15 AM (

Had a little bit of time at work today so I made up this quick color sketch advertizing one of the gas powered beaver's features.
(click on illustration for full size image - image compression looks bad here)

03 March 2004, 10:17 AM
:applause: :applause: :applause:

love it!

03 March 2004, 10:31 AM

I like the idea of an advertisement. It'd be an original answer to the brief that becomes suddenly obvious within the machineflesh theme...well...seems obvious now you've done it...

03 March 2004, 12:11 PM

"... new self clean function" .... GREAT!!!! :scream:

03 March 2004, 12:13 PM
:applause: where can i place an order?

03 March 2004, 12:26 PM
Hey Kirt,


Excellent! self cleaning, But have u thought of safety features like Kickback saftey cut off switch and operater protection sheild and for stability a neck handle. I have used a chainsaw and they scare the shit outa me, but this thing looks dangerous LOL

Excellent work very entertaining :beer:

03 March 2004, 12:39 PM
Awsome! so your going with the bever then.:thumbsup:

hey kirt. your signature looks like homestar runner

03 March 2004, 03:01 PM
hahahahahhh very very nice :)
