The wrecking yards grown cold by MachinesBleedToo The wrecking yards grown cold by MachinesBleedToo
I've always been really romantically obsessed with excavators. They look so peaceful when they're not being operated, like they're asleep.

This is a character of mine- 2973-F- mourning the death of a flower. It was supposed to be a statement based on the idea of a machine with feelings and a depiction of my own loneliness and depression at the time.

I was running on four hours sleep and I'd been awake for over 30. So it was the result of sleep deprivation and brainspew. That's when the best ideas arise, imo. Haha.

His design might be a little disorientating at first but part of what I like about it is that you can see it in so many different ways. It's intended for the scoop to be his head, and the arm to be his neck.

2973-F is mine. He's fairly old.


TECH
It's drawn entirely with a tablet in Photoshop CS4. It took me about fourteen hours. Textures in background by =Inzekkt.

The changes in contrast etc kinda fucked the lighting/details, though. Bah.

Here's some stuff I'd like to know-
How does this make you feel?
How do you think the character feels?
Is the composition good? Details? Is there anywhere that's too detailed, or anywhere too simple in comparison?
What do you think of the text?


EDIT:
HOLY SHIII A DD?
Wow. Thank you, so much. All of you!
I can't respond to all the favs and watches. But I'll do my best to work through the comments.
Thank you to =NebulosaMentalis ^savagebinn for this.

I really like this, both concept and execution. Since its already been nominated for DD I guess there's not much hope for an edit, but if you ever got the itch I would suggest swiveling his head a little more towards the center/foreground so we can see the face better.
