My entry into the Beyond Human Artstation Challenge for the Keyframes category. I'd like to return to this and add more when I get a chance as I had a few other frames I couldn't finish up in the time limit.
Upon finding and rescuing a little girl who is lost among the ruins a new and unfamiliar protocol takes root. "Home" however is deeper in the wilderness where the machines won't go.
The duo take shelter from the rain on their journey out of the city ruins. They believe they have escaped their pursuers but something, however, has not given up the hunt so easily
After finally getting Emily home, Ornix is surprised when the humans of her clan willingly reveal the truth about the war, the Elder machines, Emily and the source code to her in a dazzling holographic projection.
Enforcers show up at the human settlement. After a raid the enforcers prepare to leave with what they believe is a copy of the source code and Emily. In exchange for Emily, Ornix turns herself in. A gun, however, is quickly placed to her head.
