This is artwork for 9K CG Challenge.
Theme is " What is Life?" (Happiness)

[b]My Concept:[/b]
He devoted himself to art.
As you known, This way of life isn’t easy. It’s full of obstacle.
But he’s struggle to his best with his cybernetic manikin-like body.
Is he handicap? or he just want to exceed the limit of human’s body?
I don’t really know.

Anyway, with his life-less shell, he delivered the wonderful portrait of an angel.
He is happy till the last minute. Doing the thing he’s love.
He may already death. But, he continue to live on his art.
