My coal-powered robot, based on a design and commissioned by artist Tad Branham. I used Sculpey Clay and smoothened coins for the arm plates and head piece.

I tried to marry Branham's original design with 1980's toy joint designs and a few tweaks to make it seem more functional.

Special thanks to Enil Rodriguez for the shoot!

And just in case, from the Q/A:
Q: No photographs? What about a photo of a painting I did in real life?
A: A photograph of a sculpture, painting, or some other piece of art you have made are in fact exceptions to this rule. Feel free to submit scans and photographs of your art if it's not already in a digital format.

Love it.

Steampunk all the way! I especially like the rust and the dents. Good work.

Christ almighty this reminds me of Siberia!

The automaton from the game Siberia (a point and Click 3D adventure) was a giant mechanical man like machine that traversed a railed set path along the continent.

such wonderful memories.
and great render to boot!
