Concept sketch circa 1999.
I like the commentary here on humanity. Around the android's head, in fact it almost forms a halo of sorts, is a mess of wires and parts that one imagines can all fit inside this shell. In the center we have a human face, and the realization is that a human is just as complicated and messy as those wires and parts. The human is the android, and the android is the human, because both are complex even if they are complex in different ways. We are androids of flesh and bone, a collection of parts that would be just as dead as those wires if we removed them.
This is so awesome. The expression is so powerful, the linework is extremely well-done, the whole concept is amazing! Excellent work!
I love the combination of human emotions and machinary. Fab!
