Bot by karichristensen Bot by karichristensen
This is a new process for me using acrylics. It was a lot of fun and I like the direction. Now the challenge will be to approach the same technique and look with color.

Daily Deviation

Given 2003-04-19
Ever wish you could crawl inside another artist mind and see what makes them tick? I'm sure you've seen concepts of bots before, but I find this one a little more different and interesting ;-) (Wink) Check out one of todays many features: Bot by karichristensen (Selected by ^syragon) ( Featured by syragon )

death-jargin Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2004
i want to learn how to color like that
FloatingAiko Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2003
Well, THAT'S what I call a mighty monster! :clap:
One of the best. I guess because they do look incredibly mighty, but not evil enough to become your enemy.

pacman23 Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2003  Professional Digital Artist
awesome job
abaddon36 Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2003
great use of acrylics, nice brushstrokes.
Wet on dry method?
karichristensen Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2004  Professional
No conscious method- just making shapes and painting out of my head. I find too many artists are caught up in method. But, some of the things I did with this are some washes and I used some spray paint, and some ink and a white out pen. . . .
art-nouveau Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2003
it's looks like bot constructing itself step by step and still searching for new upgrades :) (Smile) ... maybe it's an organic thing inside hmm? i love the head/body combination but i don't like tentacles.

ukwarrior Featured By Owner May 3, 2003
hey, awesome use of acrylics. acrylics rock, they're so versatile. what technique were you using here? it looks kinda as if you've done it useing a watercolour technique and then added highlights in normal, from the tube, paint.
anyway, this is a great piece, well done.
docturpat Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2003
Excellent painting man
It certainly does have a warhammer feel to it
but as you say that is understandable
Still love the feel of this guy
Who knows they might even use your designs for new minatures???!!!!!

Thanks for all the comments, I really appreciate them. This lifeless artist just read every entry:) (Smile) It's a great feeling to do something that's shows a little piece of my twisted guts and find that there are people who enjoy the fun of it. I'm just having a lot of fun painting whatever pops up on the canvas.

A lot of people commented on the Warhammer look. I've been doing tons of paintings for the Warhammer card games the past year so that of course has influenced me a lot. But, the biggest influence for this was spontaneity. I didn't plan anything out. I just started attacking the canvas and enjoying the beauty of mutation and entropy and my own mistakes while I'm painting.
blind-rage Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2003
looks a lot like one of the mutants in Anarchy Online
fetology101 Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2003
i dunno if it will be the same with color. This monochrome look is very effective, and probably necessary, to the style its in. very cold and mechanical.

i liek the background, it looks wicked foggy
