The Automaton by rosy-GingerPear The Automaton by rosy-GingerPear
Gosh, it took me ages !

Third time I reshape Gavin's face since the first time I posted him.
And I wanted to try a new colouring way - I'm actually proud of this one !

My robot character Gavin, again. I should draw Hollie more often. She's the main-main character of the story, after all !
Shall I introduce him to you, finally ? He's an ancient automaton built by goblin engineers. He's unique, unlike most robots which are built in series. (Still, a lot of robots are unique in this world.)
At the beginning, he's serving a magician named Alno´n Troublevent (Troublewind) before being stolen.

Gavin is the second main character of the novel I want to write in the future. For the moment, I'm working on the storyline and the universe around it. ^^

~Time : +10 hours
~Tools : Intuos4
~Software : Paint Tool Sai
~Layers : 19

Gavin belongs to me and is part of a story of mine.

Love it. I think the harsher lines just seem to go with the character in the same way the watercolor fits Hollie in the last piece of yours I saw.

Love it all :heart:

Thanks you very much ! :la:
Gavin is a kind bot though (I can't even imagine him being evil x) ), but I must say that you're right, I didn't even notice that :) (He's a robot, so digital media; She's a human, so traditional media ^^)
And also this coloring technique is perfect for metal xD

Thanks again :hug:

Oh, I didn't say he looked EVIL, just with him being mechanical and stuff, the different technique is PERFECT.

...also, because it's been playing in my mind over and over and over since I saw this,

"Yes Walker, Kate Walker."

I alway assumed that he was doing that on purpose just to be annoying :XD:

(Sorry, that was just a wandering thought ^^)

:D Ahah, "Kate Walker" are the word Oscar said the most, I agree xD (I also wondered why he once called Hans Voralberg "Hans" while he has called him "Hans Voralberg" or something, before. And he said he can't stop saying "Kate Walker"... Yeah, right. xD)

I really like how you painted all the textures in this picture. It makes the metal look so different to the cloth, and the Gavin really stands out against the background. It's very beautiful :)
