Looking good, Eric! The details are really coming together. Cool work on the glows, too.

just a random thought - can that robot even move with his joints all rusty like that? It's beautiful texture work, but is it functional at all? Just a thought - when I look at construction vehicles in my city, the outer parts are all rusty and beat up... but they always have those hydraulic joints which are in perfect condition, perfect tubes of chrome. It's quit a contrast, the nice, shiny hydraulics with the rusted exteriors, but it makes sense: the body can be as rusted as you want if the moving parts stil slide correctly.

Anyhow, just thinking about that in relationship to your piece, maybe something to keep in mind as you get to the lower section. Still, it's beautiful texture work, man!

Coloring WIP: details...



Just working on some more details. Thanks for the input!
I think I will keep his joints relatively rusty - after working on a farm most of my childhood - I have seen 100-year-old rusty and corroded equiptment work like a charm. I wanted the monkey to seem timeless - never aging/never dying.

Coloring WIP: birdy



I think I have the bird's soul finished - I wanted it to look a little contorted, but a still kind of peaceful.
