The fact that people here have more talent in their left toe than i have in all is kinda discouraging, but anyhoo, this is for fun right :)

so here's the first concept
Larger version here (

The idea is, to make things for the people in the future easier and less work... So from top to bottom... There's a thought for the eye. Its enhanced to detect a very large portion of the light spectrum to allow to see infrared, UV, X-ray, you name it... Then the spikes there are actually hair and are like on the skull there. They are attached into the skull and to the brain to allw moving, reshaping and elongating... Think of having a different haircut and there it is... Each main root separates into 4 separate subhairs. This can also be used as a weapon when needed. Then there's another sort of more detailed view of the eye. It shows the optic nerve moved to the side of the eye where no light is received to eliminate the blindspot. Then the tooth that I didnt have time to finnish has small machines attached to it. Ever dream of not brushing your teeth of flossing? well here we go :) the metal part stretches out and cleans the teeth from all sides. They can also cover it completely and extend it to make sharper stronger teeth, that can be used for eating meat, or whatever, or attacking (like a wild animal).

So thats that for now... I dont think i'll have that much time to work on it for a while now.. but i'll do what i can

Please submit your WIPs here:

raw pencil concept for head. Mech hair, eye and tooth (unfinnished). Not the actual image, but components of the character...

Though this is a very, very basic sketch, I got the idea that with the enhancements people could become guards. They would also have enhanced strength and mechanical wings that allow them to fly around. The wings when retracted are small as shown, but poles extend along with a superresistant bulletproof fabric to make gliding possible. Jet boosters would also be on their backs.

Also, as a little change, i was thinking the child one would be the stronger of the two. The adult one would fly around faster, looking for problems in the city, much like a policeman, and the small one would come in groups when there was trouble.
