Autumn Guard


Herpdederp, the background is on vacation.

The concept behind this is that the old civilisations in my story had very funny gadgets that eventually ran out of power some centuries after their masters 'left'. The surviving civilisations dubbed them 'Autumn guards' because they are always buried under dirt and leafs and seem to 'guard' the areas they are reactivated in, which are mostly forests.
Since humans are still curious and still have shovels, they regularly bump into one of these guardians and attempt to reactivate them. It is not adviced to do this near any settlement because rift-powered hammers really hurt your buildings. Fortunately thats the only weapon they can still use since time took its toll on the ranged weapon systems.

I thought this was good, but not as much as most people. I think the head is a bit too small. Of course, it was probably supposed to look like a hunchback. Part of his arm seems to be missing. I'm not quite sure if that means that part's floating. I really like the joke about not having the background. Hey, that is something I noticed!

I knew those were leaves. It's funny how almost all your other art has people in it, at least judging by your thumbnails. It is a pretty unique design. I think the colors could be better. I like how you described it.

kmau responds:

I agree with pretty much everything you wrote, this thing really didn't age very well. There are only a few other machines in my gallery and the most recent one actually has arms that connect to the body so I guess that's a step up!


best robot ever seen....and what is he holding?....a laser gun?

kmau responds:


Have I seen this somewhere? No...

Anyways, I think its great, and for the record, I thought t was a hammer when I looked at it, not a price scanner.
