Lisa 1 by AxelMedellin Lisa 1 by AxelMedellin
I love wood robots... I guess they're pretty bulky and useless and impossible to make, but they're also unique looking... I like drawing all the cogs and ropes, things that look like they could work. This lady is the greatest inventor in this world and half of the others. And nine times out of ten, art is better with a lady. Oh, yes.

This was done first as a ink wash drawing, and finished in Photoshop. I enjoy doing this quick concepts, just for fun.

First post, I hope everybody likes it.

I'll just put in my two cents long enough to say I don't see a robot made solely of organic material to be any less possible than one made of metal. Maybe a little more difficult, but it could still work. Just replace all that electrical input with chemical interactions and you're set. Such things aside, the robot reminds me of Da Vinci's work, as does the background. Don't know why I want to call it a construct instead of a robot, though.

I like construct, that's a good word :D

Thanks for the comment... as for the Da Vinci angle, you are totally right...

Utterly unreal.

Yet it jumps right of the page, the mechanical caring... more realistic than the robots with rusty skin i've seen.
It looks like it could move, the potential is insane with so much mechanical parts respectively jammed into it's anatomy, it's not so much a question of if it would move, but how interesting it would be to see such a masterpiece in motion.
I know it's a character from your imagination, but you deserve to be sitting in that robot's hand, excellent work

I have to say I've never seen a wooden robot before. This guy looks a lot cuter than many of his metal fellows. :aww:

I really love your wooden robots, and hope to see more, they seem more realistic to me than a lot of metallic robots I've seen. Plus, I totally agree with the idea of pictures almost always looking better with a woman in it... Especially sci-fi and half naked beauties… *glances around* I’m glad no one from school was around to read that.

Wow, the detail in this image is astonishing. Like the fellow above mentioned, it doesn't particularly look like a wooden robot, but that most certainly does nothing to diminish the coolness of the image. Good one :thumbsup:

verry unique, i like it a lot. i like the design on the face and limbs of the 'robot', it reminds me a little bit of the fifth element. the colors are verry nice and warm overall,
but, to be honest, at first glance i didnt think it was made of wood, i just thought it was made of bronze or some brownish metal, or maybe painted. to give the idea of wood you'd need to texture it a bit more i suppose.

anyway, great job, verry original especially.
