Illo Friday – Robot

April 24th, 2006

Robots don’t work all the time, you know. Sometimes they go for walks in the woods with their kids. And pick berries and stuff. So, if you’re camping and you see glowing red eyes in the bushes … just remember, it might not be bobcats …

  3. Hi Christine, I don’t know if you are asking how I made them cute or how did I paint them – [smile]
    So I’ll answer that I think roly-poly shapes can make things cute so that’s how I did that part.
    If you’re asking about the illustration, they are painted in Photoshop using many, many layers of digital paint and a large variety of brushes and blenders in different shapes and sizes and opacities.

  11. I love the differing antennae – between Pappa/Momma bot and Junior bot (not quite sure on their gender)

    Comment by Detlef — April 24, 2006 @ 8:22 pm
  12. Karen,

    What a fun illustration, thanks for sharing.

    Comment by Kate R — April 24, 2006 @ 8:58 pm
  13. Thanks Melissa, Debby, Deb, Detlef and Kate

    Detlef, then I have done my job … I intended them to be gender-ambiguous so that anyone could “read” the parent relationship of their choice into it.

  14. Very charming… um, are you suggesting a possible origin for the Bigfoot legend?

    Comment by Nancy — April 24, 2006 @ 9:42 pm
  15. Great illo, love the colours and the shadowy atmosphere. Those eyes are awesome.

    Comment by Katili — April 24, 2006 @ 10:21 pm
  16. That’s funny comment about the gender coz I looked at it and immediately thought the big one must be Mum! Anyway, it’s great, I love the way they are walking!

    Comment by Felicity — April 25, 2006 @ 4:29 am
  17. ooooooh they are so cute! robots normally don’t do anything for me but i love these ones!

    Comment by moxiegirl — April 25, 2006 @ 5:01 am
  18. Great! What an imaginative image and caption! Mysterious yet not scary – very fun.

    Comment by Zeke — April 25, 2006 @ 8:10 am
  19. oh how clever and nicely done! I really enjoyed this one.

    Comment by Starr — April 25, 2006 @ 1:17 pm
  20. Love this one, Kwinttie, and it’s very different from all the other stuff you’ve done.

    Comment by Janet Kroenke — April 25, 2006 @ 3:52 pm
  21. Thanks, Nancy, Katili, Felicity, Moxie, Zeke, Starr and JK – I’m glad you’re all enjoying it!

    Nancy, yes I think you’ve hit on something with the Big Foot idea!

    Comment by Karen — April 25, 2006 @ 4:22 pm
  22. Karen,
    This is GREAT!! I agree with Ratlion – cute and eerie at the same time. And the colors are wonderful. It reminds me of Lane Smith – one of my favorite illustrators.

    Comment by Redheaded Stepchild — April 25, 2006 @ 4:30 pm
  23. Lynne (Redhead) – I didn’t recognize his name but I realized we have two of his books – the 3 pigs and stinky cheese man – Now I’m going to get them out and look!

    Your comments are all so encouraging, I will probably do more in this style, thank you!

    Comment by Karen — April 25, 2006 @ 4:46 pm
  24. I love this illustration and will send the link to a robot-loving friend. Very imaginative, and I like how the juvenile’s eyes are slightly different from the adult’s. Great detail.

  25. This one takes me back–I had a toy similar to these guys, though you really made them come alive here!Fantastic job!
