Body modification: Work in Progress

Art 410 Project, steps

The original image was crooked and had a an undesirable background,

screenshot 3

so i removed it — using a quick mask — and rotated the image to make it more level

.screenshot 2

in need of a background i created a layer of a single colored rectangle and then used the quick mask on a set of gills, tweeked it using skew and warp, and then did a color replacement


Body Modification: Notes 2

Art 410 Project

      gill implants to support aquatic life. goggles. fin implants along  legs, webbed gloves that extend to the proximal philangie. info pacific sail fish. the bones of the fins would fit into notches along the bone

 gills would be surgically connected either external gills like the axolotl or internal gills like a fish.

Body Modification : Notes 1

Art 410 Project

limbs- arms (for arms, hands, fingers), legs (thighs, forelegs, feet, toes) , torso (spine, organs, ribs, genitals and reproductive), head (neck, mouth, eyes, ears, nose, hair), tail (bace of the spine)

merging with animal parts, mechanical animal parts in place of organic.

connecting the neurological synapses whit electronic equipment

maintaining the new limbs features

animals- avian (wings, tail feathers, beaks), reptilian (skin, teeth, regrowth, tongue), insect/arachnid  (web,mandibles, wings, eyes, fangs) mammalian (claws, fur, teeth, ears) fish (fins, gills, pincers,)

posing – two figures interacting with each other, one unaltered, the other with body mods.

move the nerve and muscle endings to a single location that would allow for the mechanics to be “plugged in” to the biological body

faun —

mechanical prosthetics connected at the knee. height would not change. hooves at the bace of legs? human muscles of the thigh would be larger due to way the prosthetic operates. the tibia is shortened (mid bone of the leg)

Body Modification: Cyborgs

Art 410 Project

The human body, in its design, is a marvelous thing. capable of slight regeneration and healing, interacting with the surrounding world, and is largely self sufficient—being able to survive with reliance on few things. However, these capabilities are surpassed not only by other species but by the rapid development of new technologies. What if the wold as we knew it no longer existed but in its place was a dystopia, where human hybrids were an everyday occurrence, and the nine to five no longer existed? What if the overlying structure of society collapsed and left the peoples of the world with limited connections? In this post-societal and post-apocalyptic world the modification of the human body is not just an esthetic idea but one of necessity.

This series will explore the idea of scientifically adapting and altering the human body to  allow humans to continue to exist.
