Do Robots Dream Of Electric Sheep?

Inspiration: "Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?" Philip K. Dick: Blade Runner (1968)

--

The true credits should go to Avotius and his incredible photo
:: Enigmatic Character [link] ::
which inspired me to do this picture...

Be sure to check out his amazing photo gallery!

P.S. Thanks for the permission Avotius :)

I love how his face is divided up into 'sections', and how there's a hole near his ear. It lets you see into his complicated mind!

Wow, that looks weird. It says critique encouraged, but I really can't think of anything to say... *Looks again*

I think it's great the way it is.

Heh, thanks, but there are several things to fix on this image, like, the head looks a bit flat, it needs more shading to add depth, the wires in the ear aren't convincing enough, the radiating circles should be redone etc.
Thanks for trying though, I always enjoy a critique :)

"Do Robots Dream of Electric Sheep" is one of my favorite books EVAR!

i think the notion of robots developing cognition is a very romantic notion :]

have you ever seen the Animatrix? i found myself tearing up during the "Second Renaissance" during the robot genocides :(

that's right. i'm a geek. :dance:

:aww: I loved Animatrix, even more than the movie trilogy (where only the first part was awesome)
...and you're not a geek :paranoid:

and it's "Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?" :P

That's right. !! I !! am a geek.

Reci ces da nisma normalna ali vise mi se svidja robot izdanje. Nekako je...lakse za dozivljavanje. Sama pomisao da je neko nesto napravio..od te djevojke..i to nesto takvo..je odlicna..ok, original je extra, nema sta..ali je trebalo i od toga napraviti takvo nesto. Neeeemoj da budes skroman:)
Jesi, uradio si, i to mnogo!
Tako da..TISINA:))))

Ha ha ha =D... ne treba meni tapkanje po ramenu, svestan sam ja svojih kvaliteta, ali isto tako znam i cemu stremim, a tamo su moji kvaliteti tek skrabanja po staroj autobuskoj karti...

...a i dalje mislim da je teže bilo uhvatiti emociju one male kineskinje nego pretvoriti je u androida...

You totally upped the intensity of the mood of the photograph, the child in the photo looks maybe a little sad, a little lost - but this robot character looks really desolate, the blurred background makes him seem more alone. Very spooky looking, reminded me a bit of Alien Nation.

Thank you for this great comment.
I wish more people could take their time and think about the piece in front of them, and leave such deliberative comments.

Thanks hon :hug:

Actually it could use some more work, but I simply don't have the time for it...
All my work lacks that final polish, but since I'm not really an artist, I think it's good enough... =D

Thanks again...

No, really.
I've never read a book about art, I was never taught about colour harmonies, nor composition, everything I do I do it the way I feel it needs to be done.
I'm not really an artist, I am just a hobby artist.

You know what, I really like this concept and the overall image itself. I would have done the background differently but I'm not saying there's anything wrong with yours. The only thing that I would say might deserve a change is the mouth. It looks more human than the rest of the robot. I might have given it a bit more gloss or reflection or something to make it look less like human skin. Still really cool though.

There are lots of things that need mending!
But I kinda waited a long time for a permission to use =avotius' pic, and it was waiting unfinished in the corner of my hard drive... until I lost inspiration...
That happens to all of my work to be honest...
If I don't finish it in one bite, it will never be finished...

...

Thanks for your visit! :wave:

this is beautiful and sad. at first i was going to say he should be more shiny to look more like a robot, but i like how his skintone is soft. the fact that you used a child for this makes it more touching.

This is amazing! :judge: I love the brain waves. He looks so deep in thought. I saw the original and I love what you did with it. I'm happy that you left the expression the same. :w00t: Fits the character quite well. Excellent job. I love the lines on the face too. :deviation:
