Have you seen my Ice Drones?

I've kinda been on a Sci-Fi paperback/comic book cover kick.

The ice is melting and the drones are waking up.

Wow, what is an ice drone, Kraven?

It kind of has the feel of the Titanic in the background, but not quite so ominous feeling.
I like the visit from Aurora Borealis in the background--

Nice. You & my husband would have a good time comparing how you change the pics/images you take or create.
Interesting stuff!

Hope you have a good one, Kraven!

Thanks.
I scanned it and then gave it a bit of a bevel and shadow.
It's the same image on all the pictures. I just change the color to suit the picture.
I use GIMP.
It's a good free open source program that's a lot like Photoshop.
It's good for fixing up photographs.

I like your writing-- just took a look at your signature.
(Not sure why I said that, guess I'm tired, lol.)

Maybe the kids could pick their own ending!

Ha! Like many a movie plot, maybe they're friendly explorers and we, out of fear, become the aggressors and miss out on a great opportunity.
Or.... We take them to our leader and everyone lives happily ever after.
Or.... They're us..... from a bygone age..... Like say Antarctica was Atlantis before an Earth axis shift caused by a asteroid strike, and these little buggers say Made in Atlantis on the bottom.
Or.... An advanced civilization seeded the poles with a drone police force, knowing that one day our industrialization would lead to a warming climate, releasing them at the proper time to intervene.
Lots-o-comic-book-possibilities.

Is 'utter destruction of everything in their pathway' the ultimate goal of the drones, as programmed by some human?

Or are they solely computer run and controlled in a future world?

Or is there possibly a peaceful mission for the drones?

The one in the center is still partially frozen in.
And yeah, the viewer is looking out from a hollow in the ice.
Maybe the viewer is a drone too.
I imagined the trawler as being unsuspecting and about to encounter that drone heading toward it.
Maybe it will get off a Mayday and there will be a mystery until more drones wake up and "spread out", as the Three Stooges would say.

It appears as if the ice drone is heading into a cave, the viewer's perspective on things.

Did you have a bit of a story line in mind as you created this image?

Trissinger

Yes, that makes sense about the ice drones, very creative.
You ~could~ write a sci-fi story about the ice drones, though--
I like the premise.

A Carbonet ship, wow, who works on it? What's it's cargo? Whaere is it heading? What conflicts are aboard and how do those on board interact with the ice drones? ... Answer those questions and you'll have the beginnings of a simple short story, lol.

Thanks Triss.
An "Ice Drone" is just my Sci-Fi imagination running wild.
I'm sure you've heard the theories of ancient alien visitors.
I just imagined them as unmanned drones that somehow got caught up in the ice of the Ice Age, and now with all the ice melting, they're being freed and powering up.
Comic book stuff.

I modeled the ship after a fishing trawler.
You can't see it because it's so far in the background, but it has Carbonet fore and aft.
I know; it's supposed to have identification numbers on the bow, but it's my cartoon world so I can do whatever I want.
Yeah, the greenish hues in the sky are supposed to be a touch of the Northern Lights.
It's like I'm making comic book covers for stories that don't exist.
