Mutant Marauders by ricochet188 Mutant Marauders by ricochet188
Disclaimer: FOR SOME REASON THE PREVIEW IMAGE IS DARKER THAN THE ENLARGED DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO FIX THIS???

This picture was for an event recently here in vancouver called Crit night [link] where we had some local concept artists host a big critique session where we can hopefully learn something.

We got to pick from 3 different sci fi esque themes and we had to create a picture in that theme. I chose the theme: Mutant Marauders. I was tasked with showing some distopian world where mutants are running rampant.

I finished the picture the morning it was due and you can see the old version of it on that site above as well as a bunch of my friend's works too. But the critiquer's tore it to shreds and I decided to tidy and fix it up a bit before submitting it here.

I really tried to push myself with this project to learn a thing or two and I guess it was a success!

--------------------------------------------------------
My idea was that in the far future after some cataclysmic apocalyptic event has happened, the world leaders put together their efforts to preserve the human species, they create these mechanical beings made of trillions of nano bots that can shape themselves into different forms and self repair as well as provide their own ever lasting energy, they are also super strong and agile.

A lottery is held and among hundreds of high ranking officials and important scientists aproximately 50 thousand of the worlds people that are left were chosen to have their minds implanted in each of these cyber/organic machines.

THUS the process of bonding human and machine takes 100 years, so all the chosen people went underground to start the procedure. The machines were designed as tools as well as life forms, in a world where machinery is now scarce it is up to raw man power to rebuild society and preserve the future for human civilization, thus these machines are super strong and durable.

As time went on the remaining humans on the surface were left to fend for themselves, and after a hundred years the machines rose from the ground and right away regular humans held distain toward the machines.

As time went on the two races grew to hate eachother and a fatal flaw in the machines made them somewhat crazy and barbaric and eventually it was all out war

Ha, nice. Looks pretty sick in your art. Though, if you're at all interested in cool jeeps, check out Jeep's Nukizer concept from a few years back, would love to see em go full production on those. It's styled after the old military Jeep trucks, so it fits right in, in your post-apocalyptic world.

This picture reminds me so much of the video game The Last of Us. Once again I must say your art work is simple stunning.
