Orto GB-7

robot-model.jpgmachine2.jpgAfter my last posting showing a model that’s in progress I recieved a good response.  Apparently, people like this stuff so I decided to show one of my finished models. 

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.

Work in progress.

carriage-model.jpgOcassionally, 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.

message.jpgI finally finished this piece for Spectrum 15 along with several other paintings but those will have to wait for another rainy day:) 

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…
