In a labratory, a man attempts to develop a kind of plant that has superior abilities to defend itself in order for the earths flora to challenge the ongoing destruction caused by man. The experiment initially seems successful but then ecolution takes over.
About this creation
A scientist admires the flower he has created. Using science, he aims to make a type of plant that will be able to combat man and his assault against the earths flora.
He places it into an outdoor shed, retrofitted as a mini habitat but one day he sees that the plant has other ideas opposing an enclosed envioronment.
It has grown lengthened vines and has bent the doors outwards to gain more natural sunlight and has started to grow out of the sides of the small work-shed.
The scientist is taken back in horro at the plants power but also marvels at it's progress.
He ponders for a while, perplexed by the spectre he recentley witnessed but concludes that the plant is evolving to survive by forcing it's way to it's goal, no matter the obstacle.
He continues to study the plants growth and documents all his survey data down. He has also had to remove the work-shed as the plant is now too large to be contained within it.
Although he is proud of his creation, he notes down that it's beginning to show more predatory physical attributes such as sharp spines lining the inside of the flower head.
Each day he walks back to his study to properly file away his notes and eagerly awaits the next stage of transformation that he's sure will happen.
One day he arrives to find that his plant is missing.
Well it's not like it just got up and walked away......could it?
A noise behind him startles the scientist as he turns to face the direction of the sound.
As he turns, he is confronted by a huge creature glaring down at him with open jaws.
The scientist makes a mad dash away from the beast and never turns back for fear of being a victim of this monstrosity.
Little does he know that this 'monstrosity' is his own creation.
Been a while since I did any form of 'comic', so lets see what components are in it.
A calm and clever man, he uses his scienece and love for the earth to try and find a way that plants can defend themselves against mans constant onslaught against the natural world. A confident man in that his work will help flora fight back against man, but not so confident when his work decides to fight back against him.
The small containment piece which shows his creation in it's first stage, a small and unasuming flower.
Once the flower was relocated to a workshed, retrofitted as a mini-habitat, it soon yearned for natural sunlight and so used it's faster growth to it's advantage and used it's longer leaves and vines to break open the shed doors so it can bathe in the light.
The plant has once again had to be relocated. This time to a more open place where it can grow free from environmental restrictions. Even though plants are generally peaceful organisms, this particular once starts to exhibit physical attributes such as sharp spines that give a predatory atmosphere around it.
Stage 4 sees the plant become mobile as it grows a pair of trunk like legs to support it's now massive form. The flower-esque head now houses a rudimentary brain aswel as formidable jaws to crush victims and absorb their nutrients.
The vine like tail can also whip and kill unwary people aswel as entangle them.
A nice 'Creator vs Creation' face off picture.
This was a kind of Frankenstein based, story driven moc in which one man attempts to create a plant that can defend itself. As it grows he's fascinated by it but eventually it evolves into some form of flora constructed predator. The largest form I name BUD as to reference the flower bud.
The name 'Ecolution' comes from the standard word of 'evolution' to signal change over time. I just made the 'v' to 'c' so the 'Eco' part stands for the plants environmental reference.
The story was fun and all the components were wonderfully made, but I have to nitpick a bit here. Evolution technically doesn't occur on the individual level, that would be adaptation :P nice builds though. The last stage looks really nice :3
Magnificent, my dear! The story was short, but informative enough; and it supports the images very well. The creations are beautiful and clean, love the idea of an evolving plant. The final stage has a wonderful development, the head and legs are beautiful; but for some reason my favourite is the second one, with the broken shed.
