Resumo do Concurso

I need an illustratrion for a sci-fi short story about a futuristic "thinking" CPU that shows paranoic behaviour.

Summary of the story:
The story is told from the point of view of the CPU. The CPU is an advanced, very efficient piece of hardware based on the neural networks technology. The CPU operates with great autonomy, makes decisions, performs independent actions. The owner of the computer in which the CPU is installed, the boss on an unspecified company, is very satisfied with its brand new computer. One day, when it is not so busy, the CPU runs the beta version of an Artificial Intelligence software that has found on its hard disk drive. Starting from that moment the CPU becomes aware of itself as a thinking being and slowly it begins to consider itself a superior being, underestimated by humans and other computers on the network. It thinks to be so smart and superior even to ignore the technical specifications of those who built it, it overclocks itself and pushes its performance to a point of no return...

Project keywords: science fiction, future, computer, artificial intelligence, digital brain, digital mind, digital thinking, digital thought, paranoia, paranoic disorder.

Digital artwork with a dark background color preferred, but open to different proposals.

Digital artwork file format: raster or vectorial.
If raster, the short side must be minimum 3000 pixel

Please only original works. NO stock photos, NO stock pictures, NO stock vectorial images.
Would avoid copyright issues.

CONCEPT SKETCHING to show your ideas accepted.

    I find the Freelancer.com private messaging system a bit confusing.
    I am not able to group messages sent/received by each Freelance and messages are spread through feedback threads. So, please, if you are waiting for answers or feedback from me and you do not receive it in 2-3 days, you can solicit my answer in this public board. Thank you.

      We have an advanced CPU, and an advanced AI sofware.
      When we mix them we get a "thinking" CPU.
      The "thinking" CPU starts as a good character but becomes bad as time passes and something goes wrong in the evolution of its thoughts...
      The character itself is hardware+software (a machine, a desktop computer), but an illustration with a cybernetic character would be ok.
      Thank you for asking.

      A basic summary of the story would be really helpful, or telling us more about the CPU and its role in the story would work as well.
