Glad you like it. The painting may look steampunk-ish but it is about our lives and what we see around. :beer::)

Yay you finished it! not ill anymore i'm guessing?
It looks fantastic. i was expecting a more brown/grey/copper colour scheme but i really like the colours you picked, very unconventional.
Is it airbrushed?

The concept is very reminiscing to a few doctor who episodes. i'd make a reference but i don't want to spoil to who hasn't watched it.

Yes, it is airbrushed, most of my work nowadays is. I didn't want an old rusty feel hence the gamut. You said you used to wonder what you'd look like if you were a robot. The concept of this one was formed when I looked at the photo and I realised it was calm but restless, if that makes sense.

Well a bit on the gears part, maybe? :) I also like the note on the description: "Dedicated to all those machines who forgot that they were once people."

yeah, I meant the gears. The gears took me longer than anything else, I mean designing them and building into one machine.
