3D-Coat Community Challenge #14:

How will we look like in AD 4016?

Technology influences our lives and our lifestyle. We all find ourselves dealing with more and more advanced machines and electronic devices every year. From basic consumer products like smartphones, through intelligent cars, to wonders of the anticipated human organs 3D printing.

According to Moore's Law, the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years. Does this law apply to other categories of our life? Many science-fiction films from the 50's to 80's pictured flying cars, cybernetic limbs and space travel to be available for everyone as early as in the year 2000. Those prophecies were wrong, because in 2016 we are still mostly driving petrol fuelled cars cars, a lost limb cannot be fully replaced, and starship travels to nearby planets are still far beyond our reach.

How do you think an ordinary civilian will look like in AD 4016? Two millennia from the present day? Will he be a farmer growing potatoes while striving for survival in a post-nuclear winter, a worker drone living under a constant surveillance in an Orwellian-like future, a chubby consumer with a permanent connection to a global network through his anti-grav saucer, or maybe a transcendent being that is a pure energy?

How do you imagine yourself... ourselves in two thousand years from the present day?

RULES OF ENGAGEMENT:
1. The goal is to create a character that depicts a civilian from AD 4016.
2. Most of the sculpting and retopo work should be accomplished in 3D-Coat.
4. All texture work must be done in 3D-Coat. However you can use Photoshop or other similar 2D software for projection painting, etc.
5. Use any software you like for rigging and posing.
6. Any rendering engine can be used to produce the final image.
7. The scene must have at least one "character", which of course could be anything, depending on how do you think we will look like in the year 4016.
8. The scene must have a background, either a matte painting or a 3D one (it can be rough as it's only to provide the context).
9. If necessary, provide a brief textual description of the AD 4016 setting, that would justify the strange appearance of your character.
10. HAVE FUN!

Deadline: 23rd of October 2016 (Sunday), 23:59:59 GMT.

normally we have posted the WIP in the same thread as the description, that means here in this thread.

Would that not more convenient for the organization of the Community Challenge Subforum ?

p.s.  i like the organized look it has right now, all former Challenges are in order...should stay so ;)

its interesting, but also ambitious :D

But i have no fancy idea up till now. So i'm putting just words here, meanwhile. lol

I guess if the world is not destroyed by this time, everybody will have billions of personal biotech-nanorobots on/in the body who are constantly repairing our "body", to keep us alive.

Industrial Robots will do the work for us and therefore everybody is getting an unconditional basic income. So everybody can do the work/ arts he or she is always dreams of.

I actually have an idea for this one.  I was thinking about humans that added on to themselves as their own bodies got more frail. 

Up till now it seemed like no one else liked this contest idea.  I'm so glad to see something besides futuristic soldiers.

Hint: they will probably be bionic to a degree and maybe centuries old.
