View Full Version : Machineflesh 2D Challenge Entry: shahiruddin pakzad
shahiruddin pakzad has entered the Machineflesh 2D Challenge.
hi this is my first very unprofessional sketch. sory for the bad english but i will try to explain my idea. the creature originally lives under the sea and has developed a technology that alows him to investigate the surface of his planet(maybe the earth in 100o years or so).i still work ad the details but its the first time so dont expect to much. any comment is welcome! :)
i made the creature black but maybe i change it. the legs are a mixture of something machine-like and organic. i thought it could be some kind of metal or lether..but just ideas maybe i change everything but i dont have much time i can spend on this work
a little bit more colours

its a good start, I like the basic composition idea, the way its striding out of the sea is dramatic. Maybe black isnt the best colour, it looks quite threatening in black, how big is it compared to a human?
a human would be as big as one leg of the creature or smaller. i did not really thought about that. your right with the color but in the final version i think it will look different. a lot to do.. :bounce:

hi seyn. your concept is beginning to flesh out but it could be pushed more. you say that the creature has never been out of the water...so i think that your walking mechanism should reflect that it doesn't know what landwalkers use to walk around with. you should design something that the creature would have if it's never been to the surface before. somehow, just plopping legs on a first time land explorer seems too simple. maybe look at ancient dinosaurs who first came from the ocean. how did they evolve and what kind of changes did they make to adapt to life on land. i think this research would be helpful and intrigueing.
you are right with the critic but the walking mechanism the creature uses shows his inteligence because he uses the best form of walking..maybe they learned a lot from human(sunken ships etc)..something like this. i did not say that its the first time the creature came out of the water.. would be a litlle dry for him right?its just that the creature has legs(maybe like a crab) but they are very unusefull and short..so it needs something that gives him more speed and is more usefull on the surface. i think also of some kind of cooling system because it would be very hot under the sun, have to make some sketches and see what i can do
with crablegs and some colors. i think now it looks to much like a non-inteligent watercreature..hm
