Update 2: Chosen for a DD, I'm stunned! Thankyou everyone, this means a lot to me. All of a sudden I have a lot of comments to read, and I can't guarantee an answer for everyone, but I promise to do my best.

Update: If you are interested, you can see the original pencil sketch in my scraps, here: [link]

I actually started this as a simple study, it was meant to be a human figure - but I made a stupid mistake about 30 seconds into it and decided that it would look more interesting as a robot-thingy. Thank God for human error. Sketched with pencil, then scanned and coloured with PS7. It's a little different to how I originally imagined it, but I'm quite pleased with it nonetheless.

Thanks to ~brenbren for the stock photos I used for the background: [link] [link]

and ~laxative for his wonderful rust textures: [link] [link]

i like the texture you used on the robot and how the spine and cord connect the upper and lower half.

It's obvious you get this ALOT, but that is really cool =D It's kind of ironic- he's a robot, but he's showing one of the most human traits of lonliness- at least that's my trying-to-be-deep interpretation lol. Awesome!

Very dynamic design. Interesting how it started out and then your creativity took off from a "mistake". The subdued colors and wonderful texture make this a very unique piece of art.:thumbsup:

This would make an excellent cover to a SF book. I just watch I Robot on DVD, it would be perfect for a book like that. I like your picture better then the picture they used for my paperback copy.

If you have time, check out some of my poetry. Most of them are a study of Islam or are on religious themes. Might do some other types soon.

Congradulations!

But I agree that it has a sad feeling to it. Nto just the "robot-thingy" but also the colors.
