This is amazing - I love this as the cover for Catherynne M Valente's Silently and Very Fast they just fit together in concept so perfectly :D

I put this this image in my favorites a while ago, but was touring your gallery again today and decided to leave a comment here. Besides being an absolutely stunning composition, the subject strikes a chord with me. Quite often I feel like I'm just a machine marching along and dreaming about what life must be like for natural beings.

this is a real masterpiece. It sums up your imagination at work, your use of both subtle and intense color, movement, composition, depth, use of interesting shapes. thanks for your inspiration.

No freaking way.

I've seen this picture in an advertisement in my PlayStation: The Official Magazine. No way in HELL did I ever think I'd find it on DA! Holy crap, I'm totally blown away!

Okay, this means that I have to make this review really, really good. I've always loved this image and always take a moment when I see that aforementioned advertisement to pause and stare. The colors are vibrant and beautifully used and the gears look very realistic and add a great depth to this piece. I love it. This is awesome.

Phew. I hope that was good enough. I now feel pretty cool because it's like I've met someone famous now. ^_^

Thanks, I'm glad you like it! :) But, why is it in Playstation magazine? :/ Was it an ad for Corel Painter, I hope? I don't know who else would be using it and printing it :(

It was an ad for electronics skins, I believe. *grabs a copy and checks* Ah yes, here it is: www.infectious.com. Your image here is the largest of the images in the ad -- I believe as an iPad skin. "Unique art skins for laptops, netbooks, iPhones, iPods, iPads...." etc. All of the artwork is properly titled and attributed as well. I checked the website as well. Here's a link to your pic: [link]

If they offered it, I'd definitely get it for my PS3. :3

Hahaa, I found you (and this piece) through a Corel painter email. Though they credited the picture as "Robothead", by Julie Dillon. -_____-;;;; Working title, maybe?
