A wonderful illustration; love the subtle color; the tiny faint details in the background; excellent pen and ink

You are so skilled at drawing. I really like your loose crosshatch technique too.

Linda said...

Funny, nice lighting and I love the expression on his face

I love the colours and the style, it is very old school. I love his pensive look.

Cool! Nice drawing and technique.

Doug said...

I like your subtle color palette... I can't seem to get myself to do that. great illo!

Amy Zaleski said...

I figured you would have an excellent "robot" contribution and I wasn't disappointed. Excellent color pallete and as usual, your linework is fantastic.

Kactiguy said...

Great bot. I like the limited colors. I think my life would be much more simple if I would follow your example.

carla said...

I love theis old school laboratory and creation look you have here! The scenario is amusing, and the the limited palette creates the feeling of a dungeon where unspeakable scientific experiements occur...very Dr. Frankenstein! I'm glad you were able to finish this for this week's topic - it works perfectly!

Dominic Bugatto said...

Always fun to stop by and see what you're up too. Superb work as always!

Julie Olson said...

I love your line. I'm really into line and keep wishing I could use it more effectively and more expressively. I love the hatching. And just as much, I love your use of limited color.

the doodlers said...

Excellent! Looks like it 'sproinged' to mind fully formed! My favourite of your recent posts!!

I love the light on the mad scientist's face and the cockeyed angle of the poor robot. The hatching in the darks is beautiful. ~ Arna

thanks for the comments everyone

Wow, yeah. I love robots and I love this drawing. It reminds me of the art from Jacob Two-Two meets the Hooded Fang...the original book, not the new Nelvana cartoon.

Hooray for Robots!

Dee said...

This is great! The shading and simple color palette is so well done. I love the expression on the scientist's face.

Fulton Beal said...

With menace he cried
"My God! Its alive!"
Light flashed to a thunderous sound
My wondrous creation
Robotic sensation!
Rise forth for theres village to pound



I left a comment over at the board, but thought I'd post the prose over here too. Love the mad scientists lab, expecially the old school computer.
