Ah yes, this is in fact better. Granted, that's really only because I can see the cat face. It's still a great picture. I am really starting to understand the way the screws are placed in on top. That shows great detail. You'd be surprised at how many are on a laptop.
I feel like the pose is stronger, because this robot seems to be more in on the action. It's a pose that seems like it's ready to attack. Three fingers wouldn't do much. I would love to see this thing actually fight. Well, I'm sure it was in one of your cartoons.
