A Future Of Mechanical Trees, Marek Okon (2D)

Title: A Future Of Mechanical Trees
Name: Marek Okon
Country: Canada
Software: Photoshop Cs

This is my non-winning entry for the 2D Machine Flesh Challenge. The story behind the image is supposed to show a future where trees require mechanical alterations in order to sustain themselves.

The technique/process I used started with a large outline sketch, then scanning the drawing to Photoshop, colouring each section in solid colour with highlights and shadows, and then creating textures from my own photography and applying them to certain sections of the image. Once that was done, I would go back and clean things up such as shadows and highlights.

Even though I got a few critiques from people during the contest, I want to get people’s opinions and thoughts on the piece as a whole, not just, what the requirements were for the contest.

the piece as a whole is well done

but i dont really get the idea that it needs the machine to sustain itself =/

Gary2: I can see why you think that, I had that same comment raised several times. What the main message I am trying to say in general is that life itself, be it human/plant will require machanical alterations in the future, (which is where science seems to be taking us if you read science journals).

Looks good. Interesting concept. A lot of the machine flesh challenge art I saw revolved around cyborg type animals and humans. Neat idea. I like the colors too.
