I've always loved the robot-women drawn by Hajime Sorayama. So, I thought I'd try to emulate it (using a male-form, which I don't think Sorayama has done).
It's not nearly as good as one of his, but I'm still pretty pleased with it.
I couldn't find the compressor for my airbrush so I had to paint this by hand, except for the background which uses some acrylic spay-paint.
I'm painting pets.

When you draw human beings, your idea of what a human being looks like can bleed into your process. This can be good and/or bad.
Animals are unique to paint because you can be more visually objective while still retaining some emotional attachment to the subject.
