    Are you sure this is finished? The costume needs a lot more work, and the rest looks just unfinished. You may want to make this more interesting to look at, by showing more of the wrist joint, and making wrist and neck area more believable...

    I'm loving the texture of the metal head, really selling it there! I agree with the previous posts that the costume looks very unfinished, especially next to that nicely rendered head.

    I like the irony of a robot trying to drink coffee, but I think it would work better if it had some sort of non-functioning mouth, or painted on facial features to really push that feeling of "wait a minute, that thing can't drink coffee".

    I think it would be worth reducing the saturation and brightness of the background to separate the figure. The distinction becomes particularly flat on the right side of the image where the shoulder is almost the same color as the background.

    That being said, I really enjoy it, and I hope you keep going!

    He could be an antique dealer appraising the value of the tea cup. Do some cloth studies, it's seriously letting the piece down.

    Thank you, yes I agree that the cloth definitely brings down the piece. I suppose may will be cloth study heavy for me haha

    This is awesome advice, thank you. I will definitely see if I can build the piece to a more professional or at least finished place

    Ok so I really like this piece!! I love how you made him seem as though he is drinking the tea and wearing clothing, things humans would normally do not robots. I think uniqueness like this stands out the metal parts are rendered really well and probably once you refine your strokes on the clothes and the cup this could be an awesome piece.
