doodling a little bit, this is my turtle affe, whou SHOULD be modified to race to the kitchen to get me coffie.

couldnt help it, okay?! ;)

The reson why turtles:
They are actually realy clever, you might not know this, but they do know the difference between its masters, and can be trained some (I have a turtle in a tank next to my desk.)
Best of all, they can grow realy old.
Modify a turtle and you have a machine for 50 years.
Modify a dog and you have at most 15.

Turtles on wheels would be able to do some realy neat stuff!

Looks cool, and un-tortured like Im sure alot will do. I guess now the turtle probably won't have much a problem beating that rabbit, just like in the bugs bunny episode!

thakka ther kaerlega!
Now I learned a new word in icelandic aswell :)

cool idea, alice. don't turtle naturally live out to around 150 years or so? i'm not sure. need to catch up on my turtly trivia :p

anyway, it kinda reminds me of stahlberg's render of a girl on a futuristic bike. heck it would be awesome if you intentionally made it a parody! lol

emysfit - i hope more people do untortured pieces, because i think that the whole 'tortured biomechanical' look is incredibly cliche. but if people find a refreshing way to come up with a tortured look, then i'm all for it.

03 March 2004, 04:50 PM
Erm.. yes... its the monobike :p

I´m thinking about making it a trike though, and the final composition wont be near the stahlberg monobike :)

03 March 2004, 05:02 PM
Hi Alice!
Good start...the turtle is really cute. Maybe add some wheels with hubcaps that look like turtle shells. There are a lot of quirky design possibilities.
Good luck!:beer:

03 March 2004, 05:03 PM
Oh well, suggestion 2:
Extreme styling.
We are a vain kind, so I realy dont think that extreme bodymodifications are so far away.

What Im thinking of is taking one of the subcultures we have now and making it more extreme, and what wouldnt one choose if not goth.

So, some scethes of an extreme modified goth will fallow :)

03 March 2004, 06:02 PM
humz.. that was harder, well, will scetch some more later :)

03 March 2004, 10:07 AM
A goth turtle.....I can almost guarantee that will be the first of it's kind.I like your style and look,and look forward to seeing them advance.........Have fun.............:beer:

03 March 2004, 07:09 PM
Hey Alice

I like your scetches a lot! You're going more or less the direction I would go if only I had time to participate... ah well, I'm looking forward to your next image :)

Its an angel, attached to a ship of hell as a guidelight when they are about to reenter hell.

06 June 2004, 08:38 PM
second problem, I dont do lineart :/

06 June 2004, 08:46 PM
I was thinking about having her wings cut of, but as i was drawing the veins, the thought of having them melting together with the ship became an option :)

06 June 2004, 08:51 PM
Oh, and i was thinking about having the ship as a living growing organism, like plants, but id didnt feel hellish :)

06 June 2004, 12:01 AM
HUmz, I will build some more on the ship and use the boat Sovereign of the Seas 1637 (Royal Sovereign) as a guidelight for how the ship should look. Ironicly, the ship coasted king Charles II his head as it was considdered wasted money having gold covered statues on it.

When the SOVEREIGN was launched in 1637, she was well able to satisfy the passion for ostentation of Charles I, who had ordered her construction.

With a keel length of 39.40 m, a midship section of 14.80 m, a mean draught of 7.10 m, a length of 71.45 m from head to stern railing and a height of 23.40 m from keel to the tip of the cresset (stern lantern) she was far and away the LARGEST SHIP IN THE WORLD.

10 men could stand upright in the cresset. The SOVEREIGN OF THE SEAS was popularly known by the name "Golden Devil". In her first naval engagement in 1652 the SOVEREIGN OF THE SEAS sank a Dutch warship with a single broadside.

In 1695 the SOVEREIGN was almost 60 years old and the admiralty considered having her scrapped.

However, the ship which had once been the pride of the nation refused to die - or at least in such a way. During the night of January 27th of 1696 when the SOVEREIGN was anchored in the port of Chatham, the cook forgot to blow out the candle burning in his quarters. The candle fell over and a short time later the SOVEREIGN OF THE SEAS was engulfed in flames from stern to stern. They were not extinguished until the hull had burnt down to the water line and what was left sank down to the harbour floor.
