A dog's life by OrcOYoyo A dog's life by OrcOYoyo
Hi this is the final piece. took me very long :D i have no clue how long it's been.
My Entry for the machineflesh contest on CGTalk.

The little story a friend of mine Lothar wrote for me suited to the picture:

A dog's life

In the year 2040 scientists of the international BIOPET-Corporation archived a breakthrough in cybernetic technology and the altering of biological lifeforms. Without knowing they changed the path of history forever. Using a natural male dog the BIOPET-Specialists implemented a special neural interface which enabled it's carrier to process speech data and develope basic inteligence. I mean … it really was sort of a breakthrough. Look, it could even talk with you (due to its semi-neural processing unit and the fast-adapting speech script implemented) and learn new words as you name them. The little babble dog flooded over the planet like a giant tsunami. Kids and even adults competed in international championships where the dog with the most words and the most fluid articulation won a price.

After some time the BIOPET-Specialists upgraded the basic version and added a completely new component: A humanoid robot with a direct link to the cybernetic part of the dog. It took care of all the unwanted and bothersome functions that naturaly come with a cyberneticaly enhanced dog pet (e.g.: feeding, spending time caressing and taking it for a walk). It was now possible to posess a pet dog without actually having to care about it.

Unfortunately, as time went by, a majority of the "improved" babble dogs evolved a close realationship to their droid companions resulting in fully interactive conversation. Humans were no longer needed. It was then only a matter of time before the first babble dog archieved a moderate level of inteligence and suddenly discovered that freedom is desireable. It started with "Fondle-Charley", a babble dog who with the help of his droid companion managed to live on it's own.

It is now 10 years later. Human civilisation ... changed. Babble dogs and their droid companions now populate large cities. And as a whole new civilisation came into being - the surroundings change with them. The shape of buildings, tools - everything presents itself in a new light, a new design meeting the requirements of a dog's life.

It has something to do with steaks. And bones definitely fit in there somewhere. Imagine it. What would it be like ... ?

Hach, da ist es nun das fertige Stück. Meiner meinung nach würdig für den machineflesh contest.
Allerdings frage ich mich seit dem ersten speedpainting davon was dieser runde Ball mit der Röhre dran darstellt bzw welche funktion er hat?

:iconorcoyoyo:
OrcOYoyo Featured By Owner May 25, 2004  Professional General Artist
Danke. die röhre nach hinten ist der zugang zur underground. siehe anzeigetafel mit der hundepfotenschrift. oben links ist ein zeichen einer stadt mit drunter einem ubahnwagen.
Das ei ist dazu da den weiblichen roboter mit energie aufzuladen. siehe schild auf dem ei :)

mal wieder ein echtes meisterwerk. :)

die details sind wirklich gut gelungen, mir gefällt auch dieses runde interface das den ramen des bildes bildet (hmm das klingk nu intelligent :p)

was mir aber nicht so ganz gefällt, und auch schon beim Gnom Workshop aufviel, ist dass du nun anscheinend einen extremem hang zu seltsamer perspective entwickelt hast. für gewöhnlich ist tieft in einem bild sehr gut, du scheinst es aber so sehr zu übertreiben und das bild zu deformieren dass es einen wirklich hinein saugt und wenn man dann mal versucht das bild zu analysieren wird einem schwindlig. (machst du dass etwa damit keiner fehler in deinen Bildern finden kann? ;) )

aber trotzdem sieht es echt cool aus.
gute arbeit :)

OrcOYoyo Featured By Owner May 25, 2004  Professional General Artist
Danke :)
also ich mache das nicht damit man irgendwelche etwaigen fehler nicht erkennen kann :D
das hier ist darum deformiert weil das bei camersa passiert...fisheye effekt.
drum ist das ja auch in dem bild drin. weil das die sicht der überwachungsdrone2 ist (sieht so aus wie die drone die vor dem eiförmigen teil rumfliegt.

den Fischeye effeckt bekommt man nur mit wideangel lensen, normale kameras machen so was net. :)

How you can make it?
Just all on this picture is wonderful: The perspective, the colors, the composition and that dog’s realism.
Definitely, you are my favourite artist.
Thank you so much, Harald, for sharing all your pictures with us.
