Don't underestimate the usefullness of a wooden robot.

It just depends on the setting, that's all. Imagine how powerful they would seem in a setting where technology never got that far past wooden sailing ships and soldiers weilding swords and bows.

Outrageous! I love this concept! The last good wooden robot that I saw was when Bender converted "over"! (Laughing!) Beautiful rendering, you've got great skills!

Could you please indulge me as to how you draw gears so well? I can never get them right...

AxelMedellin Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
thanks...

It helps a lot if you think of the gear as a clock face or a pizza... draw the dividing lines in the ellipse, they should help placing the gear's teeth

Wooden robots probably are useless but your pictures of them make me believe they can work.
This guy has a great pose. I think he's ready to fight for equal rights with metal robots. :D

That is NICE... :+fav: What do you think would power a wooden robot like that? I'm assuming there's no circuitry? Maybe it's piloted?

I was thinking weights and levers, letting gravity do it's trick, and springs... thanks!

Dray84 Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2005
Hmm... Weights and levers, and springs eh? So I suppose the robot is controlled from the inside or outside, or possibly runs itself via some magical or technological control unit?

Sorry if I'm bugging you, I just find the whole thing extremely interesting.

No problem... you make me rethink the thing... well, I was thinking of some sort of automatic system, sort of punchcards or instructions recorded in plates... since this is over-the-top technology, we can even control the movements by adding or removing moisture and pressure, maybe with algae or insect tissue strategicaly placed, controlled by chemical currents.. and now I'm woolgathering :P
