    I think the design of the robot is pretty solid, it looks good, rendering is nice too, but why is bloody? His pose seems to suggest he feels pretty bad about whatever he did, but I sure as hell don't have any clue what that might have been.

    I like the robot design, and the blood causes us to question the mystery of the image a bit more. The colors you chose for the metal are nice as well.

    For me, I am a little distracted by the reflection on the right of the painting. Is that supposed to be the robot's legs reflecting on the wall? It seems a little incorrect and a bit too distracting for me..sorry if that is a nitpick

    thanks for the critiques, and i'm glad you like it.

    you are right, the thing on the right IS distracting, i knew it was a bad idea as i added it (listen to your inner critic i suppose) and, i suppose i could have hit the reason he is so pensive home a little harder.

    critism accepted, and appreciated. next time, well, we'll see!

    What's missing? perhaps a background which enhances the piece.
    At the moment, the background isn't doing much for this picture I believe (it is just a bland wall).
    Robot is pretty nice though

    Sweet design, I really like the overall concept. Hmmm, but the background maybe needs a bit more...

    I think it would be cool if he were in a dim spotlight of some sort. You could darken the wall at the far edges and only have it lit around him. It might add a bit to the contemplative mood he seems to be in. Just a suggestion.

    Cool piece.

    The extreme darkenss of the floor is taking away from the lighting scheme and if you were to introduce some blood splatters elsewhere (just a couple), it would better integrate the image.

    Pretty cool, overall.

    Theres no interaction with the scene, you need to provide some visual clues as to the past and the future... maybe a body on the floor, or a little dog he has just killed by mistake.. ( i know im wierd...lol)

    RandAlThor is right, you should add a beat up body on the floor.It would really add to the story of the robot. Great piece overall.

    I dunno. I kinda like the sense of mystery that pervades the piece. I feel you should be left asking questions. Sometimes. But definitely here.

    The wall is metal aswell, so it should have a reflection. That reflection should show us the entire scene. It will complete the piece.

    Forshortening on the leg isn't working quite yet. Maybe make the lines a bit bolder, breaks a bit sharper?

    Also localize the the blood splatter some so it doesn't look like it was just dodging some plasma getting thrown at it [that's what I'm getting.]

    Fill up the wall in the top right or something.

    listen to what mother says, she knows best.

    i would really have to agree with danomight. i think it would get the point across more to put him in some dramatic lighting. also maybe instead of putting more in the BG put less into it by darkening it. just my thoughts.

    love the robot though.

    That's not blood! That's transmission fluid

    Remember, the easiest thing to draw is nothing!

    I have to agree with what dog food said earlier up. Blood on the floor or somewhere around would really connect the background and character. The blood is also in extremely random places. It should probably be coming from one place. The floor and feet don't seem to be on the same plane. I love the spine thing, but I'm not certain it would be able to support the top half of his body. I don't like the idea of adding a body, because I like the sense of mystery. I really like the piece, overall, though.
