The Farmers by ISignRob The Farmers by ISignRob
Personal project. The sketch is available some deviations before. You can see it here: [link]

Robots are created to make wars instead of humans. But things run out of control, and mankind itself is in danger. So, a great effort is started to contain the threat of the robots, but without destroying them...they are reprogrammed to do basic activities, so the remaining humans could restart their lives.


60% done in Painter with a Wacom Bamboo Fun, 30% graphite on paper and 10% in Photoshop.

Comments and critiques are very welcome

:icongimmefeedback:
I'm planning to do a series of drawings like this one, with robots helping in early civilization tasks, like looming, fishing, blacksmiting etc., and since it's one of my first robot designs, I really want to do more complex and interesting designs to the other tasks...Could it be steampunk? Transformers? Jetsons? I want to hear you =D And also about the wheat field, how could I make it look better?

Cheers!!

UPLOADED: Many many thanks for all the feedbacks I've got and for the Daily Deviation! You guys rock! =D

UPLOADED 2: You can see the next installment of the series, The Fshermen, here =D

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-12-18
The Farmers by *resenhista
The suggester says: A futuristic, almost post-apocalyptic world where, instead of robots trying to destroy the humans, they've been reprogrammed into simpler tasks to help the remaining humans live together in peace. Visually stunning and eerie at the same time. ( Suggested by Raithe and Featured by gucken )

I like this very much, particularly the sitting robot. I had to stop and think for a minute... hold on, why does a robot need to sit? Very human, yet so not. Very very cool.

Brilliance to the fookin' maximum. This is why I love DailyDeviations. Without them I would not have seen your Fishermen piece, thus I would not have seen this piece, and I would have lost out. Well and richly desered Resenhista, a gorgeous gallery.

I'm really honored for your words Pavel, really!

I admit I love DD too, especially when I'm in it haha, but it's a really cool place to discover unpopular yet awesome artists!

Cheers and have a nice weekend!

farm punk :D the wheat field, i would say, perhaps it's a little too saturated compared to the farmers and the sky? :S it's overall really cool anyway :)

Hmm probably...that's why I'm listening to every single critique so I'll try to avoid problems in the next drawing of the series, The Fishermen ;)

This evokes, like. The SciFi Stephan Duck (iow, an updated version of the 18th century English working-class poet who wrote practically Homeric epics about the lives and work of field laborers). The quality and expressiveness of your art continues to impress ^^

I love all of the details on the robots-- the texture of the metal, the hints of green along the spinal cords...

To be honest, I've never heard of him before, but it seems to be interesting!

I'm glad to know you liked it! I was making a kind of 'sequel': The Fishermen. I even did the scenery, but I didn't find the right robot design for this one, so I'm afraid I'll have to postpone it =/

Anyways, I'll try my best to show people something still this year!

Thank you once again :hug:
