I had started this as part of CHOW 146, but my tablet broke and i got busy. I don't think i'll be able to complete it in time for the CHOW now, so i guess i'll enter it in the main contest.
My mission was to avoid the obvious ideas like the robot coming to life, or the person acquiring superpowers, or someone transforming into a werewolf/vampire for the first time.
I had two ideas: the making of the jewish golem, or the birth of a djinn-king. I went with the latter:
birth of the ifrit-prince. Ifrits are fire-djinns in islamic/arabian mythologies, creatures of free will. Born of 'smokeless fire', their societies are set up like ours, complete with kings, tribes etc. They live in remote places. ruins etc.

this is what my psd looks like right now:
looking for... i don't know... some lateral direction...
I really like your latest upload it's got a powerful feel to it & thanks for the info on ifrits. just one thing, since it's the birth of an ifrit prince i'm just wondering if he should already be fully clothed as he comes out of the larva or whatever, & also wondering what the "hot" looking lady's role is.
