Not really thought about poses or anything yet, just get my basic idea down.

I have been so busy with uni work, but now it is all finished for the year I can get on with something more fun, I#ve gott a work hard on this havent got much time now and so many entries to see too! The basic idea is; I was looking at a number of people's entries and quite a few centered around ending life or protecting it, so I wondered about a cyborg that could harbour or create it. My friends wife is pregnant and this started me thinking. I had the idea of a woman who has maybe lost her body in some kind of accident but after some extensive prosthetics she can live normally and even have children. I dont know if we can grow babies separate of a human womb yet, but iam sure it wont be long. Prob nicer for the kid to grow inside a woman than lab. Anyway, its early stages. Also the thing is with this is that you can see the baby grow inside her, her stomach is made of a transparent stretchy material, and the womb is made of synthetics in part and then some more organics inside. The woman would need to eat real food to sustain the baby and her remaining flesh, the rest is powered kinetically like those watches, but more efficient.

Another drawing I did earlier, had been looking at reference on web, just had a go at drawin a pregnant woman and foetus.

A coloured version of the concept sketch, 5mins with a Wacom.

I think the idea will work, but now i need to create a character and some more detailed machinery maybe, there isnt really any feel to this project yet, just some bland concepts, but I hope you can see where its going...

Youve got a nice progression of work going for you, keep it up.

Some how the woman with the bubble in the middle of her defiantely needs something more. perhaps shes not nurturing a foetus but an almost fully grown child. And in a way shes somehow protecting it not as its natural mother but a surrogate. As the child may be almost fully grown perhaps it needs a method to be fed, clothed, dispose of waste etc. these are all just sugestions.

But what im basically getting at is that perhaps youre being a bit too literal, perhaps the baby isnt in her abdomen but on her back and maybe theres more than one child.

Hope that helps somewhat to get you in line with the machine flesh feel.:thumbsup: :D :beer: :beer:
