The Last Human by karichristensen The Last Human by karichristensen
I recently found out this piece was selected for Spectrum 21:)

*****

Personal work.

I started a facebook artist page

I will be at IlluxCon this week and NYC Comic Con next month. Let me know if you will be attending either of these events.

The Last Human by karichristensen captivates with its story and superb technique. The humanity conveyed using robots speaks volumes to what may lie just around the corner for our own society. Absolutely spectacular! ( Featured by diphylla )

Very impressing, a machine taking care of mankind. Well, just now mankind doesnt take care of itself. So there's hope and tragic at the same time in this picture.

amazing concept and very well executed in this piece! the colors work well (the olive drab green that occurs in both the bigger bot and the baby's swaddling cloth) & the composition is contained and interesting. the only point of improvement is that i would've liked to see a bit more contrast: a darker foreground :) overall this is an absolutely beautiful piece with a haunting story :heart:

This looks like the makings of a very good movie, as long as it isn't picked up by Disney.

Is there someplace that has the story online? I'd love to read it. Well done!

What came to my mind when I saw the image was this:

Biological and robotic warfare has devastated the planet, a virus was released into the atmosphere that has further mutated beyond what its designers planned for and is killing off the human race. The robots are out of control now that their masters are dead, and in the midst of the chaos that one lone baby is born with effective antibodies against the virus. Now it is up to a robotic servant, loyal to the family it serves, to protect that baby and get it to where the antibody can be extracted and replicated to be distributed as a vaccine
