thank you (c) for your fast answer! yes.. the human figures are just sketched but you're right... I think I'll put two figures there, watching down, like if they discovered the huge robot in that moment. But I am ready to change idea. I just think to need human figure to make proportion with the robot size.

giant robot (WIP) updated 29 Aug 2006
here another update, I found rusty metal of the robot's body too much similar in color to the rock, so I did it white, naturally with rust and so on. I'm still working on it.
Comments and critics needed!

I Anjin the idea is very nice ! I think that the first concept, the giant robot and the two person little, is the best idea. At this moment the work is good

Thank you everybody for comments!
- dreamworker: thank you for helping me. the original ideas with two little person is still the same! Just I will put the little person at the end! This illustration is making me very busy, I didn't think at the beginning that it would be a so long work!
- Rhineville: what do you mean exactly? The light sources and relative effect specially on the robot still are missing... I didn't work on it for now. I had thinking to put moon light from the sky, and some artificial lights from people on the grass. Also the eyes of the robot maybe will make a little of red light. But if you have suggest I am here. thank you fro your time wasted on my work!

if u want him to look old and rusty...find a picture of something old and rusty and look at it. he just looks like he got the crap beat out of him. i would say use more reference for materials, and i would agree on the lightsource issue. you could darken the scene more and have moonlight coming in and reflecting off of him to add more of a nighttime feel. i like the flashlight ideas but they need to be better executed.

- mbetteker: thank you for the super fast post! My idea is that the original color fo the robot is white, and I tried to make it rusty and with mood but without to lose all the original paint. But if I have to explain it means that I didn't realize it good enough. I tried at beginning to make it very rusty (with orange/red brilliant) because I have a lot of reference, but it was like soething small. Other problem I had is that if I make it too much rusty and NOT brilliant it will almost desappear against the rock behind him. Hmmm...
For the light, you are right.. I am still working on it, both lights I mean: flashlight and moonlight, it's almost my first illustration with a so difficult light! Maybe I started something a little too much complex... Hummm Anyway I'll going on! Thank you again!

at first thanks for you c&c and I love your drawing and concept
I agree with most people about the lighting, as of how you fixed it now, it looks really unnatural, I'd say it is not good to leave out the lighting and do the colouring first, you have to plan it all at the same time. for as you know or might not now, colour IS light. this way you can make it in one dynamical piece. at the moment(you are prolly not leaving it like this) but here's a thought anyway: the light of the flashlight, could never lit the robot's head at the same time as his legs, from where the people are standing.
but you are doing one hell of a job, and you are better at colouring digital then me.
