This model is called Orto GB-7 based on a short film concept I was toying with many years ago. The story was about a convoy of robots traveling a baron landscape in search of other dead robots then repair them into functioning machines. I’ve also added a rough sketch of another robot I never made but was going to be the main power supply for the convoy basing it’s generator source on kinetic energy.

Ocassionally, when I get the chance I like to build custom models based on my doodle sketches, here’s almost finished. I just need to paint the creature and set up a rigging system for the beast to pull the carriage . I tried to get this finished in time for Spectrum 15 this year but I failed. Never enough time in the day AHHH! I will keep posting the progress until it’s done hopefully in a month or two.
In this painting I started with a simple drawing of a woman, after taking her into Photoshop she grew into a life of her own. Sometimes painting can take an artist into places they had no intention of creating from the start. There’s a narrative in there somewhere just ask my wife, she already has an entire novel about what’s going on in this piece. As for me I think if I gave an answer it would be ruined, I leave it up to all of you…
