Some initial set of robot future

Those are some interesting sketches. I'm liking the large dark floating shape from the last sketch, but I'm finding the character itself too busy. I'm thinking mixing one or two of the large dark elements, as shields or something, with the second figure from the top row, would lead to some cool stuff. Lots of interesting ideas in those sketches, so I'm looking forward to see where you go with it.

Very nice sketches, I like the direction you're taking. Some of the thumbnails remind me of this (http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?imgurl=http://www.virtualworldlets.net/Worlds/Listings/Animatrix/Matriculated16.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.virtualworldlets.net/Resources/Hosted/Resource.php%3FName%3DAnimatrixMatriculated&usg=__inUBnZkLPPwUfFGoRpbERruwi98=&h=330&w=800&sz=41&hl=en&start=26&zoom=1&tbnid=sWyNLO1zyYwZvM:&tbnh=74&tbnw=179&ei=5W-ETYzRGoq24gbWxYiQCQ&prev=/images%3Fq%3Danimatrix%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DX %26biw%3D1680%26bih%3D906%26tbs%3Disch:1,ic:specif ic,isc:yellow0,500&um=1&itbs=1&iact=hc&vpx=1212&vpy=688&dur=1&hovh=144&hovw=350&tx=153&ty=121&oei=2m-ETYSNHoSGhQf6keStBA&page=2&ndsp=40&ved=1t:429,r:22,s:26&biw=1680&bih=906) character from the Animatrix. Good stuff.

Very nice looking. I was looking at the third to the right on the top and looking at the legs. It looks like wheels there and I was thinking you could incorporate something like a hubless wheel instead of actual feet but still have the legs and it would also have a feminine look to it. It would look very clean and mechanical but would save time that you might have to spend doing extra mechanical details.

I think in the beginning as far as possible the design of more
20-03-2011, 08:02 AM
Wow, thats freaken rad man. I like the siting down version. I think you might have a winner on your hands there ;)
20-03-2011, 09:52 AM
great work! keep it coming
20-03-2011, 12:29 PM
this stands a great chance of winning :D im rooting for ya m8
20-03-2011, 09:30 PM
With that machine part on her leg, she reminds me of the Shiva summon in Final Fantasy 13 (well, one of the sisters, anyway).
She also has the 'god/goddess' feel to her that many concepts so far are lacking. (Sorry, other guys, but it's true).
I can't wait to see this work grow.
20-03-2011, 09:39 PM
Great concepts ones so far, gl onto the comp' man!
24-03-2011, 03:01 PM
Thank you, I need more advice
I think the machine needs more power goddess
24-03-2011, 04:21 PM
It's coming out very well so far...
Great sketches, and great style mate!
24-03-2011, 04:55 PM
someone tell that person she looking into a giant gun barrel :D
great work so far
Very cool, I like the direction and all for this one. Overall in DWV the Machine God seems over played and lacking in imagination but this one has a nice sexy / cool factor to it the others don't seem to be getting. Keep us updated, I think you are doing an ace job on this.
24-03-2011, 06:24 PM
Keep up da good work!
26-03-2011, 01:20 AM
I like the concept in post #8. To add "power" maybe adding a mechanical beast she rides on?
26-03-2011, 03:04 PM
oh wow... this is sweet... cant wait to see the final image! :P
26-03-2011, 05:29 PM
Killer concept, especially given how your last ref started to introduce the scale your thinking of. My only thought is that the Hexegon/Honeycomb pattern is a little overused in sci-fi design. It works well on your concept regardless, so ultimately if it feels right in the end, might as well run with it. Nice stuff!
26-03-2011, 08:23 PM
nice sketches. quite original. $hit load of mechanical to model.
26-03-2011, 08:23 PM
wait it's 2d. oh, that's nice.
27-03-2011, 07:44 AM
good idea, I really like your character
29-03-2011, 02:51 PM
Changed the structure of many machines
I need more advice
29-03-2011, 03:03 PM
dang, these drawings kick ass.
I personally like the first one better, it has a more powerful, commanding feel to it. The new image kinda makes me think like machines have taken over her body and are using her or something.
29-03-2011, 07:19 PM
A lill' Gigerish look, I like it!
You could work a bit the meaning of all this stuff.
All da stuff parts around the body + body make me think to the head/neck part of some big mecha.
Here some fast paint just to show you the idea, hope you'll forgive me for doing that over your art, I'm sorry.
The mecha doesn't have to get legs, and it could be with your talent stylized and designed far far further. My mecha design skills are close to zero.
It's just my thoughts, nothing more. Keep it up!
29-03-2011, 07:31 PM
I like washka's idea, just the mecha should be more see-through and posing the mecha according to her pose would give the impression of her commanding it.
if it's between your last design and the one before I prefer the latter, in the new one she looks constricted not in control, which i think would be a gods prime ability.
I can see her pose and the hands kinda following that, but it's more like she is in a machine with the arms held against her will, bondage style.
29-03-2011, 07:48 PM
Yeah with arms up as koyima said: it would be better, the mechanical forearm part you already started could be the "deltoid" part, and the three double light spots just below the "triceps" part, or something like that...
03-04-2011, 10:21 AM
:wall:I endorsed the idea of washka Thank you
I hope that more of the great goddess, not a huge machine:dance:
03-04-2011, 12:31 PM
It's just an idea, you can trash those when you really want to go your way.
04-04-2011, 04:45 AM
wow those concepts are really good!
04-04-2011, 01:33 PM
Cool concept!!! :evil:
04-04-2011, 02:34 PM
Loving the last concept :) Great work with the brushes here!
04-04-2011, 04:39 PM
Awesome. I love those colors.
05-04-2011, 08:59 AM
Love The work!!!
I like how kept the concept of her floating, you gave a strong industrial influence, maybe the extension on the outside can be more simplified and organic? kind of a circular pattern of organic-industrial-organic?
06-04-2011, 12:11 AM
Don't hide her right arm with the cloth so much, I can barely see it and it is intergral in understanding the image. Great progress. Glad we nudged you.
06-04-2011, 02:39 AM
Looks great, no crits I'd just love to see more. Playing up on the scale I think is going bring a lot more power to this piece as the viewer realizes that this character is gigantic.
09-04-2011, 06:30 PM
Machine Design annoying reasonable
:wall:Thank you, I need more advice
09-04-2011, 06:37 PM
Hot stuff man, amazing work. More lightning to emphasize the chara (Upper part robot and ovale background). Somes down big foreground element for depth?
Some lill' glow elements on mechanic part, or push a bit lill' specular to attract the eye up, you know: lilltle lightnings there.
You could also try some sides lightning to detach mechanic part from the background.
Some more work onto background and girl, and some scale elements (+1 about Puckducker's comment).
Those are just ideas/tracks.
Keep it up, great entry so far!
09-04-2011, 08:10 PM
this thing is EEEPIC, loving the scale of it among many other things. keep at it, great great stuff!

I think that the design you had before this one was better. This one is good, but the other design had a stronger appearance. This design looks a little more clumsy.
18-04-2011, 11:57 AM
umm about post 39 dont be so generous with purples, do away with it from the bottom half of the image ,transiton with violets babby pinks and scarlets wud be much better.
you know you could name her V.i.o.l.e.t in abbreviation.
also you could show her floating on a neon disc while her minions are bowing down to her.
and do throw in more visible cog wheels please and yes with extra cheese.:D
18-04-2011, 02:56 PM
+1 with prime...
18-04-2011, 05:40 PM
+1 with the prime and hula. (Beware we're bad influence :D)
Add sides zone to your first attempt? Bigger?
25-04-2011, 04:36 PM
Began painting detailed
25-04-2011, 09:48 PM
You're killing it, this is great.. really like the style too =)
02-05-2011, 05:04 PM
Lack of time
02-05-2011, 05:45 PM
but certainly an excess of skill!
02-05-2011, 06:42 PM
looking great man, awesome artwork, the mechanical parts looks very nice, and that feather wings expectacular , my fav. I think that his left arm its a little off, and definitely she have to much clothes on, lol, waiting for more updates, keep it up man, cheers
02-05-2011, 07:02 PM
awesome job :) . Can't wait to see it finished .
02-05-2011, 08:29 PM
Great Concept. Doing a great job with the detail. Would like to see more contrast between her and the background, other then that, Can't wait to see the outcome.
08-05-2011, 05:05 PM
Lack of time
09-05-2011, 07:10 PM
Looks frigging amazing!
Really hope to see you finish this one in time :)
Also if I were you then I would perhaps add some atmospheric lightning coming from that halo above her.
