Death Bloom by MurderousAutomaton Death Bloom by MurderousAutomaton
I thought a robot based on a plant might be kinda interesting. The petals are old fan blades that open around the base of a lawn mower engine, with the cutting blades bent down. The rest is an amalgamation of sword blades, fabric, metal, rubber piping and human bones.

How morbid yet unique! Reminiscent of the underrated Tim Burton film 9.

Thank you!  This is actually an entry in the 9 contest to design your own creature. :D Yeah, that was a cool movie!  I think Burton only produced it, though--it was directed by the guy who created the original animated short the movie's based on.  I forget his name... It's too bad the movie didn't do better.  I really liked the idea of animated movies that aren't just for kids!

A surprisingly underrated film to say the least; morbid yes optimistic; typical Tim Burton styling, but you know what I mean. Anyway, indeed it was very overlooked during its debut when it really shouldn't be; it had some great talent behind it; Christopher Plummer, Tom Kane, Elijah Wood, John C. Reilly *who you might remember from the film version of Chicago* and even videogame voice acting legend Fred Tatasciore.

I actually didn't hear anything about this contest until seeing your drawings for it. On top of that I never even heard of the movie itself until my boyfriend mentioned it to me. Never saw a single commercial, online ad, poster or anything!

Really? They really started plugging the hell out of it about a month ago. I heard about it back at the beginning of the summer, when I still worked for a movie theater. It came up on my "Tim Burton Radar"--and I was geeking out ever since! It was a good movie; excellent character designs!
