!! PLEASE VOTE !!  Tablet of the Future by KaizokuShojo !! PLEASE VOTE !!  Tablet of the Future by KaizokuShojo

The TABLET OF THE FUTURE~



:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:PLEASE VOTE FOR THIS ENTRY!!! My last dA contest entry was late and ineligible, and I LITERALLY need the money!:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:

This is my contest entry for the DeviantWEAR Retro Future design battle. The idea is that it's a futuristic tablet, something that may have been thought of in the 1950s. It's complete with a cathode ray tube screen, magnet-tape memory system, a punch-card slot for differing programs, vacuum tubes, switches, brightness/contrast/sharpness dials, cords, and all sorts of doo-dads. It plugs into a A/C outlet, and is only thirty pounds for easy travel! Perfect for the artist on the go! :dummy:

Please, please vote for this, anyone that sees it... The prize is a considerable one, and I could REALLY use it. If nothing else, I really must get my teeth fixed. I have no insurance and they'll all be useless after a while--several years ago a health department dentist butchered them, and they've been degrading since. I love to laugh but I'm dreadfully embarrassed to talk or smile. It's awful. I look like I use meth or something. :tears:
(Sorry for the sob story, but...I need that prize money! XD)

Drawn traditionally and shaded in GIMP. I'll load and thumb-link to the actual design later.

The last dA design battle that I attempted to enter, that I was late for:


EDIT: Now you can see the design for this shirt in detail:

The theme is "retro future: the future that never was." It's essentially a contest based on those 1950s/1960s popular shows, comic books, and designs during the space race, where everyone thought we'd have towering skyscrapers, cities on the moon, and flying cars by 1985. But that never came to be. Thus the words, "that never was."

People back then were always taking things that already existed and trying to think of how they would be in the future (like flying cars, robot servants, and toasters that would automatically cook your eggs as well). This is essentially supposed to be some person's idea of how we'd draw "in the future," as seen from that 50s/60s era. (Hence, the vacuum tubes, spools of magnetic tape, and punch-card slot). It's also supposed to be humorously ironic, because we have something kind of like it, except instead of that clunky, heavy, complicated design that the people back then would have thought of, it's very sleek and small.

Not yet--submissions are closed on the 25th, and voting ends on February 8th, so (phew!) thankfully I still have a few days to try to get some votes...:P Worried that I won't get enough to be a finalist, though, since I didn't get to enter until now....

now that's creative! :XD: i like the concept, and i love how you have a total working description of it... i feel like i stepped back in time just reading that XD and seeing it... it fits the contest perfectly, and it's still something i want to pick up and use :D

the detail in those tubes is incredibly awesome~ you never skimp when it comes to anything XD the little...uh...ridges on the knobs, the precision of...making it look just so authentic XD it's perfect :D

Well, description, yes, but not necessarily working. =P I have no idea how it'd know where the pen is on a cathode ray tube. Unless it was like a light gun? Perhaps that's it....

The whole thing is skimped, EXCEPT for the vacuum tubes. xDD
