Disclaimer for Jazza* - I am truly a beginner with digital art! I have received my first ever Wacom Intuos Art Tablet this Christmas... This piece is the 5th I have created with the tablet, however, I have been drawing with classic pen and paper for about four years now ever since I started at 9 years of age. Since digital art is so different to me I do consider myself a beginner In it. If you disagree with my reasoning feel free to judge me in the open category...

This piece of art set in the late 3300's depicts an old war robot that has wandered the ruins of Earth for decades. The levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere have greatly increased making the air outside unbreathable for humans. Fresh air became a luxury... The humans built reserves of fresh air, but one by one those reserves were depleted. One reserve provided a century's worth of air for 50 000 people. On august 4rth, 3278, it all came down to the last reserve and sure enough, a war broke out between the countries. The Third, and last, world war. The humans couldn't send human soldiers to fight due to the absence of clean air in the atmosphere, so each country designed robots to fight in the war instead. The war lasted many years, and sadly, No winner emerged... All was destroyed, there were no survivors... All gone, but one lost robot remained. It wanders aimlessly through the vast desolate Earth...

This is a really cool piece. You're story behind it was amazing at setting the background to this piece. When I first saw it I was kind of thinking this could be one of the humor relief robots like in Star Wars, always chiming in with his robot statements, which while blatantly true, they provide a much needed comic relief in times of war and struggle.

The robot seems to still be on mission, searching for an enemy robot or enemy encampment to attack, but left with nothing. It's odd to me that he has seemed to escape battle untouched. Perhaps a little bit of wear, dirt, damage, or something on him would have been more fitting. This guy resembles something right off of the assembly line. It's like he never saw a day of battle in his life.

It would have also been awesome if this would have been placed with a background of some sorts. I'm thinking a ruins, climbing over robot parts and rubble, dirt, dust, etc...

Great job all around. I look forward to checking out your other pieces and reviewing them.

Yeah, I kinda wished I had weathered him now. I liked shiny brand new robots back then... Weathering would have added so much more to the story...

thanks for the feedback :)
