Hard-edged SF isn’t really my strong point so I felt I needed to work out the flying-armour design in more detail before attempting a larger drawing of it. I’ve got to get moving as the deadline is approaching!
Here are my first designs ideas for Goldilocks’ flying power-suit. At the moment it’s something like a Gundam robot or MaschinenKrieger suit with the styling of a Lockheed Blackbird. This was just to get an idea for the shapes and positions of the limbs, jets etc. and to keep it a retro cold-war post-apocalypse style.
These are my weapon ideas for the Bears. I started with the idea of giving the father Bear a huge rotating cannon (a bit like the Soviet WWII machine guns) but then my brother had the idea of a hammer for the father and a machine gun with a sickle magazine for the mother! So I think I’ll do that.
Here’s a quick composition I drew for this competition. Goldilocks has got out of her armour to search the cave/bunker inhabited by the bear-mutants and they have returned from their patrol to find her. I need to work out the actual weapons for the Bears and Goldilock’s flying armour thing.
Here are some of ideas for the the retro powered armour that the neo-soviet mother and father bears will be wearing. The idea is that the bears have left their cave/bunker on patrol (maybe they heard jet engines?) and returned to find it destroyed by Goldilocks’ flying power-suit and a surprised Goldilocks; maybe out of her armour.
A steampunk version of The Green Knight whom Sir Gawain faces (twice). I have portrayed him in his guise as Sir Bernilak de Hautdesert (who always goes hunting whilst his wife tempts Sir Gawain) and also in his Green Knight form. I imagined him cranking himself up on plant-stuff into a steampunk cross between Bane and Swamp Thing. This gives him superior regenerative abilities, green skin and thorns, vine-like muscles and he doesn’t need to go to war in a gas-mask given the power of the green goo. This comes with the price of being addicted to the goo and also being in thrall to Morgana Le Fay who developed this technology.
I’m working on a few things right now (not paid work alas!); one of which is a composition involving various monsters and a Planar Alchemist. Here are a couple of pages (A5 and A3) of designs for the archaic re-breather and dimensional-hopping devices. The device is partly based on the Antikythera mechanism; as an historical example of an ancient computer. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antikythera_mechanism
