I love the mom robot from the 3/4 view . . . her proportions look great and the baby is cute ^_^ . . . I agree the mom needs some to be worked on a little . . . maybe being able to see her brain is taking her attractiveness down . . .can't wait to see the next revision

Hi people, a little update of my progress. I made a little test for the pose, atmosphere and colors of the momrobot. I am pretty happy with the mood, but the design of the momrobot is going to be totally different. I want a more stylised look for the image, so im going to simplify the design a step further.Mmm, not sure if im going to make a portret of the image and only focus on the mom and babyrobot. Maybe i make it more of a bigger scene and add more devices and characthers. Maybe i add some doctors and some technical hardware to give it more of a factory feel. Ah well, let just see where this is going. Cheers people

hey man, this is a fresh approach - a departure from all the lighter things i've seen around. The colour choice is great - melancholic and mysterious...and it does touch on strange behaviouir in the natural creation of an artificial machine. Although I have to say the babybot , I feel, should be a little more prominent...more foetus like (maybe a foetus robot curled up instead of a chest - and the robot can grow naturally like a human)? anyhow, keep up the great work!!

Very nice sketch. I love the glowing womb effect. I hope you retain that in the final. Funny, I actually thought of the very same idea for an image. I hope to see more. Good luck. :)

Hi people thanx for all your comments and crits on my entry. Robots without human organs who reproduce their own children seemed even stranger to me! So i decided to skip out the 'real brains' idea.

This sketch represents the whole composition. I just tried to keep things very basic so the composition works better. The big halve mooned shapes on the left is a big robot arm that enhances the compisition and points to my main subject, the robotbaby.

Yes i know, i still have to pop that little guy in! The figures below are two doctor/meachanics who obsereve the baby. I want to create a environment with a mysterious atmosphere were new life is created.
