Way to go, Rev! Looking forward to see what you'll whip up here - there's a truckload of inspiration to be found in the illustrated book of revelations I guess

Bring it on!

Sorry to dissapoint you James... but RevelatioN (no 's' at the end... sorry... my pet peave!) will probably not show its face for this challenge.

I was first thinking about a mech-anencephalic (just kidding!).
I'm working on a couple of sketches... I'l post them later on tonight.

-Greg

First concept sketch...

Setting: Hospital hallway (low resource hospital - not like the one you see here)
Character: older gentleman who's gone through way too many surgeries to save his life. Most of his vital organs have now been replaced by artificial ones (a la bicentennial man) including some muscle tissue - but all of the artificial organs are made from low-cost materials (not titanium, but slightly rusted alluminum; leather lungs, etc...). He is constantly tied to a powersource and is hospital bound due to the need for constant medical attention. His organs are exposed to prevent a further infection. His skin is full of dials and sockets to constantly monitor his vital signs. His spine and lungs are somewhat exposed in the back, and the respirator that you see, is connected straight to a 'lung interface' behind him.

VERY general details...and a VERY poor sketch since I can't draw for the life of me.
Not sure if I'll go in this direction, so this s just the first concept.
Feedback?

More soon.

Well, so far he could very well be anencephalic....

An original take on the subject I must say - I like the idea of leather lungs for some reason.

That aside: more concept sketches, please - there's still plenty of time to think about this, mate.

Tak James!
MANY more sketches to follow.... like the leather lungs, transparent plastic stomach, rusted spine, fuse box, semi-transparent respirator, etc...
But I can't bear to draw another sketch with a mouse... my Wacom is at home, and my scanner retired a few months ago.

that said, I think I'll start working on the mask.

arhghghgrthaahaahhrgh!!!!

"Concepting" with a mouse is just painful....

But this gives you an idea of one of the many gizmos he is having to haul with him... it's a leather-lung-aid... sits on the 3rd shelf of the medical cart he walks with.

Oh... and scratch the original concept sketch! It is the main idea, but I want it to look a lot more 'matrixy' than that. Tech-dark messy halways, complicated low-tech equipment, TONS of cables everywhere, etc... You get the idea.

Yes yes, I get the general idea. Sounds good to me. How about a fellow patient in one of those iron-lungs, but with his feet sticking out through holes so he can walk around? No? OK...


Quote:
Tak James!

Lol... sorry, I just have to translate that for you: instead of 'thanks' you just said 'roof' Sort of similar to my mistake with the plural form of revelation... What you really wanted to say (I presume, otherwise you're weirder than I first assesed) was 'tack' - - - swedish is tricksy that way...

no... you have it all wrong! I really meant to say 'Roof James!' - it's an east-coast USA expression that means 'Thank you so very much....'
(yeah, right!)

Anywhich way... tack fur feedback

(fur? spelling?)

Okie... I get it now

And that would be "tack för feedback", an 'o' with two dots on top instead of an 'u' - - - though technically you could say 'fur' as well, but that would mean "thanks pine tree feedback"... I'm not sure if it makes sense the same way.

Roof pine tree your interest in the swedish language!

Now get back to your modeling!
