RoboDude Redux by lifebytes RoboDude Redux by lifebytes
I was trying a very different approach from this pic [link]

This is a speedpaint (a little under an hour) and done with a different technique than I normally use. I kinda like the results thought.

I was inspired by this pic [link]

You forgot the sparklers! But very cool. If you just squint tight enough, the eyes start floating out at you. Looking....right.....at.....you. Oh, wait, maybe that's the wine talking.

I find that most of my works improve drastically under the influence of considerable amounts of alcohol.

if (inebriation == true) {
foreach(GlassOfWine glass in bloodStream) {
artAppreciation++;
}

Thanks a lot. This was really just a happy accident. I was just screwing around and it turned out nicely, not everything does. ;)

Wow, great speedy! The perfect action scene, if you ask me. I like everything about it, except the eyes... =/ I think it would've worked better if you actually painted the lights instead of using flares...
but, I dunno, that's just me.

Thanks a lot... it's funny that you should mention the eyes. I have another version that I didn't post with different eyes.

thats awsome! love the composition and atmosphere. it looks like hes been looking for somthing in the rubble and hes just found it. it gives a feeling that the viewer is what hes after and that they have about 0.9 of a second to live. very cool!

Thanks for the comment... and point well taken. Some of it is still a bit flat and rough, maybe I'lll swing back through and clean it up some time.

Thanks a lot! If you look in full view you can see that some of it is pretty rushed. A sand texture (picture taken while I was at the beach) helped to grunge it up a bit and keep it from looking too flat.

Thank you very much. Unfortunately, speed painting is all I have time for. Kids, wife, work and other hobbies only leave so much drawin' time. I do particularly like how the leg on the left turned out.

impressive for speed painting! Hectic life understand... my living isn't through art, not until I get finances to open own studio.
