Deep in the old forest

"If you go down to the woods today you're sure for a big surprise.
Theres a 15 foot mechanized steam powered robot with great big glowy glass eyes..."

So this image is a recreation of one of my older pieces that I just wasn't happy with. I found the old one to be too messy and hastily done for my liking, so being the pedant that I am I had to go back to it and start again. I've been working on this one on and off for weeks now. If you compare it with the old one you can see I've kept the same trees, I liked them.

Anyway, I hope you like the new painting.

cool it makes me think of a post apocalyptic war world where some old machines survived but humanity has regressed and we are no longer as advanced as we were

That would be an interesting but unpleasant scenario, mankind has got this far already, can you imagine having to rediscover everything!?

Glad you like it by the way :)

it would be upsetting but it would be interesting to see how we advance the second time through with all the advanced tech scattered around

I suppose, and on the plus side we could avoid re-inventing awful stuff like lentil soup or Justin Beiber!

yes but some of the weapons would come back faster with giant robots lying around
