[EVOLUTION - 01] Concept by NMac1983 [EVOLUTION - 01] Concept by NMac1983
Working on a new CyberSally pic, this is just a speed paint concept of a new design for her.

Basically the idea i've got for a story behind the illustration is this:

Despite the best efforts of the resistance to clean up the planet after Robotnik had been vanquished, the damage to the ecosystem had been done. The planet was dying. In a strange twist the survivors, now with dwindling resources and no way to sustain their society in it's present form, turned away from rebuilding their former world and instead focused on the very technology they had come to fear: Roboticization.

Created by the greatest villian Mobius had ever seen, many of the survivors saw no alternative but to use a modified version of the technology to adapt themselves into something that could survive the wasteland that they now found themselves in.

After almost nine centuries, Sally Acorn, one of only a few hundred remaining survivors, wanders through the ruins of her former world, utterly alone, seeking one energy source after another. All that she once held dear now faded images on an electronic memory.

The remade child of legacy.



It's still in the rough stages. But your thoughts are welcome.

phenomenal, absolutely breath taking. And you say this is "just a speed painting concept?" Mad skill.

I wanted to tilt her design to a slightly more organic looking tech: something that's evolved with her over the centuries, rather than having simply been 'upgraded' to.

And I can't (off the top of my head) think of any movies that follow the same vein. I have a habit of forgetting names of movies and simply remembering designs, styles or the general jist of the film.

While life on Mobius dies the Human/Mobian colony on Alpha Centuri thrives! Perhaps one day the colonists of Alpha Centuri will return to restore Mob... Earth, and when that day comes we will obliterate the technological horrors that destroyed our beautiful planet. LONG LIVE EARTH AND THE HUMAN/MOBIAN ALLIANCE!!!

Given enough time, the Robians may make it beautiful once more, on their own. And you may find that they are no longer the horrors you imagined.

True, but would they know what to do? I see how this disaster could theoretically be fixed, but it's your story so it's your call on what happens.

That's horribly depressing.

But this is an AMAZING piece of art.
