A dramatic and deadly encounter between a robot and a mutant human. The robot has riddled the human with bullets shot from guns conveniently mounted on its head. The drop of blood on the robot’s finger references the famous Queen News of the World album cover. The digital impasto style is my own invention, and is influenced by the painterly techniques of artists from Van Gogh to Francis Bacon. EUOF is an acronym for “excessive use of force”. It is a tragic image of a human being extinguished by an automaton.
Why I chose it:
The impasto technique, the emotional impact, and the robot I invented. The robot’s hand may be my favorite bit.
The original post has lots of details, process pics, an animated process, discusses meaning and influences.
Prints are gallery-quality giclée art prints on 100% cotton rag archival paper, printed with archival inks. Very reasonable pricing starting at $15.
And if you like my art or criticism, please consider chipping in so I can keep working until I drop. Through Patreon, you can give $1 (or more) per month to help keep me going (y’know, so I don’t have to put art on the back-burner while I slog away at a full-time job). See how it works here.
Or go directly to my account.
Or you can make a one time donation to help me keep on making art and blogging (and restore my faith in humanity simultaneously).
