I was thought up by man to think better than them
Then revered, admired, and then
Destroyed by them

Nice one!

Actually it reminded me about some of the modern robots of which I have watched videos of. I felt sorry for them and I feel even more sorry for this one. Looks so humane... So lonely...


Great art.

This picture is so beautiful in what it could stand for. It seems to me as a symbol of our own desire to be the best, and when we see something outdoing us, we seek to either destroy or do better then it. The robot created first as a machine to be used for better understanding, loved for what it could do and accomplish. Then when we realize that it is better then us in many ways, we find a way to best it. I also just generally like the painting itself, a very good job. I think you just became one of my favorite newgrounds artists.

I dont know why,

but i cried when i saw it.

this makes me happy

good taste in song, and a great piece of art to complement it. 10 for you good sir

Great use of color!

The robot's green and brown stains could indicate its age, the way its been treated, or maybe both? A fantastic concept, although not entirely original (whoever expects originality in everything is bound for many disappointments in life), the idea of a robot more intelligent than humanity finding contentment in the simple act of sitting on a swing is a very deep statement of, in my personal opinion, the importance of the little things people tend to overlook. My interpretation of this art, including the description, is that people failed to see the robot's ingeniousness, and destroyed him. =(

10/10 and 5/5
