Megalopolis by ~MurderousAutomaton What could be better than art deco and robots? The crisp clean shapes and foreboding red sunset make this one striking piece that seamlessly knits future and past together. ( Featured by kozispoon )

Thank you! ^___^ That's a good idea--I should do that!  Some of these were made for the web, though, so they're low-res.  I should be able to turn a few into wallpaper, though... :la:

Thanks for the idea, and thanks for all the faves and the watch! ^____^

Aw, well that ruins the fun. All the parts start beeping like at the beginning and he starts to reform. Then it ends. ;)

What seals this image for me is the red light reflection on the robot. It ties the background to the foreground beautifully.

There was this old anime called Galaxy Express 999 in 1979 and there's a city where mechanized humans live that goes by the same name as this marvelous piece of art. I enjoy how the sunset makes the multiple variations of grey stand out. Great work.

This is pretty awesome. XD Simple yet amazing. Interesting.

P.S. The robot thing reminds me of Iron Giant. XD

Wow, thank you! The fun part is that I didn't draw it by hand--it's all shapes and fades in Photoshop. :D Just gotta use a ton of layers.

Yeah, I love The Iron Giant! Great movie. ^__^
