Something to Remember

The #Asimov-Club dropped by my page the other day, and said I should join. So, I did! :D

And, here's some new Asimov Art. Hehe.
I don't do art for books that often, but I'm always happy to do it because I get to imagine the characters how I want (within only some limits).

These two are R. Daneel Olivaw the Humaniform robot, and Gladia from Solaria.

Based on a scene from Robots and Empire where Gladia suggests having some of Daneel's memories dumped so that his positronic brain will last longer.
He says that would be fine, but only if he was able to choose which ones he got to keep - speaking specifically of those having to do with his long-dead friend and partner in solving homicide and roboticide, Elijah Baley.

Blah blah blah. I made it wallpaper size because I just acquired a new monitor that's much bigger than my old one.
If you want a smaller size, hit download. :)

Poor Daneel.. he missed his friend. And by the end of Robots and Empire he lost Giskard too, being alone and with a Galaxy to care for.. This is such a great reproduction of the scene, almost put me in tears.

Haha, thanks! This picture is super old now (eight years maybe?)
I have considered re-drawing it sometimes.

Really like the atmosphere.

Also this was a great scene in the book to begin with.

I like this. I remember reading it, and I felt just as affected by it as Gladia had - that Daneel treasured his memories of Elijah Baley that much that he would, as robotically as he dared, object to having his memories "cleaned".

Nice drawing style. And moving that Daneel wanted to keep all memories of (dear) friend Elijah.

Here vis the link from TheIllustratedWord. This is absolutely perfect for Asimov!

I think we need to petition Disney to do that Caves of Steel movie!

I remember that scene! It nearly broke my heart. I thought Gladia was supposed to be blonde?

I couldn't remember her hair color! :lol:
I looked and looked for it but couldn't find it. Hehe.
Next time I'll remember this.

*giggle* She's supposed to be a light blonde-ish brown. Glad I could help!

I think this scene illustrates one of the many reasons to adore Daneel. You did a great job capturing it. :)

Great! I love it when you do Asimov art, and R. Daneel Olivaw is my favorite Asimov robot. This is an awesome rendition of great characters.

Jawsome! I likes the background you did! Also I like that Humaniform robot. I guess I really should read those books, huh? XP
Great job!
