I did this illustration based on The Humans are Dead flash game. Which can be found here on NG:

Since it´s robot day soon, I also submitted it to the art contest.

robot bug dying? what the heck

Brilliant, but "Empty"

Submitting this to Robot Day was a very good idea; and its a very good piece, stands up on its own.

You've demonstrated a good ability, even great, to represent form and three-dimensional spaces with the clever use of shading. It's a fairly basic skill to be able to represent geometric instances using digital painting, but it's one you don't actually often see on Newgrounds, and you've definitely managed to out it to good use.

I'm definitely digging the designs that you have going on; the use of insectoid designs is always a plus to robots, and while the resemblance is clear you've actually twisted it in a clever way that I haven't actually seen before; emphasizing width was a good move.

However, if there's anything that I have a problem with, its the composition. While the background isn't actually needed at all, and the use of foregrounds props was definitely a good move, the entire piece is entirely too sparse.

As is, it looks as if you've simple clocked out of a lot of work, instead of really using the composition to the max - and even then, that's just a minor concern, you've done a great job. Peace out.

Tis' nicely done

The simplicity of the background actually causes the eye to focus on the battlin' scorpion-esque bots, I like how the detail is concentrated in the center of the battle and I like the strict color pallet.
