Opposites Atrract! a property of magnets! anyways the robots make me smile:D this is my first 2D cg was quite enjoyable...except that since my reformat a few days ago i haven't installed i compromised and used paint...which turned out to be much better than photoshop:rolleyes: ok so that's why it's so crude looking..sry.

Goro - I love your picture! the colors are fantastic! and the robot is great! good work!
