The cyborg that was a boat.... (Day #2,641)
![ntopaz-image-0](https://artisteem.io/media/d205557e-998d-4277-99e7-5406c96beea9)I dig this image... it's got a lot of Story... So I won't write too much about what is going on here... You know, standard Cyborg floating at the end of a long day to recharge. For the non-cyborgs amongst us, that's like taking a bubble bath with candle light after a stressful day of dealing with the world. It recharges you, and makes you feel at peace. You defrag your brain...

So why shouldn't cyborgs get to unwind as well?  Right?

While I think this image is pretty cool - I'm proud of it (and I'll upload a timelapse of the vast majority of this being created) - .... The image is kind of a failure.... For my initial task anyways.  I was originally trying to paint a boat, leaving the port, at sunset.  

I went jogging today. I'm down in Northern Baja California, Mexico. So.. there's a small town called La Salinas. It has a bar and a marina. So, I saw a boat leaving the marina, to the sea, and it gave me an idea for a painting.  That's what I was going to paint today, but... what was initially trees and the ocean, and the ground -- Well.. you know what a "rorschach test" is?  Think ink blots -- do these look like anything to you?   --- Well.. that's kind of how my brain works... The painting resembled a cyborg floating to me, and so that is what I refined it as.  

There was an Ntopaz contest on Cyber Future stuff. I already entered my 3 entires that I was allowed, and the contest ended anyways... but, I kind of wish that I had gotten this done in time for that. It would definitely have fit right in.

As for me?  I"m going to unwind and recharge.

Good night!

Thanks (Josh)man! I appreciate that.  I've still gotta do some reading on what all that lets me do. I just jumped in and figured I'd create good content, and do a good job of that (must be doing ok if I'm getting replies like this one you just sent).   

What does the extra SP let me do? Does it show my stuff to more people when I post? Or is it more RCs, etc (so that I can comment / vote more)?

This one:  
"...more RCs, etc (so that I can comment / vote more)?"

It will also make your vote larger.

It reminds me of the animation opening, "Ghost in the shell" It was very intensive feeling if somebody watch that animation. Intensive red and lonely blue shows this work more mechanic ~ Show us more ~

Oh yeah!  I'll definitely have to re-watch the original Ghost In The Shell - it's been many years.    Just uploaded the timelapse to DTube - so, there's the "More" -- https://d.tube/#!/v/theartofori/QmU26pubBDLQLVEFk8kQ3M3zU4ekh5jZ8UjKXdHrH4XEZd

The strong contrast in the colors attracted me, the story broke the ice and made me look twice. I love the piece very much for all the different aspects of it. Really nice!

Thanks!  So glad you like it.  Different things attract different people. Definitely trying to include more story in pieces... Either way, new stuff out every day.  Also, check my timeline- just posted a DTube timelapse of this.

Really cool story, imagination is a chaotic tool,lol. I like the colours a lot and the expression of the cyborg:)

My brain (with and without imagination) is a chaotic place. I'm sure a zany sci-fi movie could be created about someone getting stuck in my brain. It'd have great visuals... lots of colors.. and the ground would probably be fairly unstable.

I would never have imagined a cyborg that is a boat. I really like the colors that are placed and all those brushstrokes that you did are kind of messy.
with you it would be great to do a contest that lasts all year.

Those are some aquatic plants?

heh, my brush strokes... and everything else that I do... are messy :)  -  I would probably not have the patience to go for a full year- but.. you certainly can watch me go for a whole year-- I've been going every single day for the last 7.5 years. 

Speaking of contest - did they announce the winner?

I think that the orderly things are beautiful but the disorder also has its charm in a certain way. Yes, I have realized that, I think I would not get tired of seeing your crazy and great creations.
if you have been 7.5 [it makes me laugh how you write the figures] how much is one more year, no? Time flies and one does not even notice.

Your 'failure' turned into a different eye-catching artwork. Whenever I fail, then it's a complete failure. End of story. XD

Creating stuff is never a complete failure... You get to learn something from it.  Supposedly Edison said at his 10,000th failed attempt at inventing the light bulb that he has learned 10,000 ways NOT to make a light bulb... some of them being ways to make explosions, etc...    And... Any time you get to create art, it's a victory!   --- Yeah.. it failed as a boat, but... if I really cared, I'd've spent the time to make it more boatlike... this was more fun :)
