The idea is to not have anything started though
I read the topic immediately when it was created, and didn't respond back until 4 days later. All I was suggesting was that I was in the alpha phase, which is creating rough sketches of motion, mood, scenery, etc. and then my tablet crapped out. Not sure how you would get that I would utilize prior work for the challenge, but nevertheless, forgive my wording I suppose?
I was hoping to see more people's stuff. I guess Sci-fi really is the black sheep of the family here.
15 min sketch. I'll be refining more tonight.
EDIT: Unfortunately the free time was not had to complete things. Ah joy.
Since others post their early sketches, I'll post what I have so far: Rick as the 4th Doctor (Mack style).
I'm working to make the scarf cover his face as the original Rick's face is, but I'm struggling to get that part just right. Anyway, I like him.
Oh no! NO NO NO! I am not missing out on a scifi art challenge. I suck at all things scifi, but it is my favourite Genre to think about slapping my very fantasy orientated characters into.
Thus! I already have a rather detailed scifi AU in my head for a few characters from Artoris that I have been itching to illustrate something small from. I won't have time to go past this sketch stage, so to spice it up I wrote a little drabble to go with the image. I'm late to the party and my work schedule changed, so I certainly can't go further with the image!
Pointless flavour text in the spoiler box!
When his brother had finally upgraded his keycard to allow for full access of the laboratory, Ismen had been delighted. Well, perhaps delighted was too strong a word for such a serious man as he, but there was a small rush of boyish pleasure every time he swiped his card on a door he couldn't open before and heard the computerized voice say, "Access granted." Seeking that pleasure pushed him deeper and deeper into the labyrinth that made up the lower levels of the building. He noted that the hallways' upkeep was diminishing as he went, lights flickering angrily and dust that had not been disturbed in years puffing up in clouds around him. At one point, when he reached a corridor with no power, dark and stagnant with a haunting silence, he couldn't help but think he should turn back.
His legs betrayed him, however, and he pushed forward still. He passed doors that no longer had the vitality to read his card, let alone open, and strange somethings scurried past that even a scientist like himself did not have the gall to identify. His logical judgement screamed at him to turn around, get out of there, but he found his legs still moved him forward. That in itself, that his body could so blatantly deny his mind, was fascinating, and if he weren't levels below his work station, he might have thought to study his behaviour.
One of the larger somethings brushed against his leg, causing him to jump and swear loudly. It was the first noise he had made since entering the lengthy hallway, and the way his voice echoed around him was chilling. He moved faster.
Finally, his vision gazed upon a door whose keycard box was lit up at what seemed to be the end of the hall; the sight caused him to rush forward, several somethings quickly clearing the way for him, lest his heavy boots land on their skulls. He swiped his card frantically, only now noticing how tight his heart was and how ragged and fast his breathing had become.
The door creaked loudly in dismay, opening for the first time in years. "More dust," he grumbled bitterly, the sound of his own voice, now without echo, causing him little comfort as he walked through the opening.
That was when he saw her.
For all his life, Ismen fancied himself a scientist. Facts meant more than feelings, theories more than dreams, and results more than living. So, he would find himself questioning forever the moment when his heart caught in his throat, and he's knees buckled uselessly under her gaze.
She was beautiful, but it was more than that.
After collecting himself, he moved closer, gazed and analyzed. Firstly, she was an android, that much was perfectly clear. He had seen plenty in his life working directly under his brother, Chief of the Robotics and AI Division. Secondly, she was incomplete; there was no outer shell making wires, circuit boards, and the metallic skeleton visible in most spots. Thirdly, her face, eyes glowing lightly in the low energy, was amazingly detailed. Most androids he had seen, crafted by the hands of his brother, were lifeless, faceless, inhuman, but these eyes that gazed down at him shone with human intellect. It was terrifying, but so, so beautiful.
He raised a trembling hand to her face, running his fingers down the smooth metal, and jolted back when a brilliant array of lights lit up across her surface. A whirring noise, one he recognized as a computer starting, took over the room, and he heard metal grind against metal as the eyes turned to face him.
"Unit M1-N11-11, code 'Mythril' engaged. Please input orders."
Her voice was not quite as human as his, but not quite as machine as the keycard reader.
Before long, his feet were betraying him again, propelling him through the dark corridor back to society.
He knew he'd be back.
I`ll do one of my character Heir from my game "Evil Overlord" in a power armor.
