I like to picture this thing creeping around distant wastelands at night, its blue lights clearly visible to perimeter patrols. Never travels more than within a mile of the city border, whichever city that may be, but everyone's created their own story about what it is and what it does.

That could be for example 23rd centurys Noah's Ark - the water from the planet is long gone and now it's time for the rest to go into nothingness and this is the Ark which will take the last remnants of the place with it going god knows where..... I guess the little one in the front is our new Noah;)

This sounds really similar to a book I read once about a crazy fan who kidnaps a writer and cuffs him in the bathroom

Maybe it's a reverse Noah's Ark...meaning, walking through a barren landscape devoid of water, the water is kept inside the huge metal behemoth in order to sustain the life inside, rather than out?
Reply
:iconchriscold:
ChrisCold Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2013
That's close to the truth. It is supposed to sustain life inside of it. In the story it gathers whatever life is left on the planet (plants, worms, even some microorganisms) and uses it in some genetic experiments, but the reasons and outcomes are unknown.

This seems like it would belong in the machines series... Are you just no longer adding to the series or iis there a reason that this piece isn't included?

Also another question, is there any backstory to your works? Maybe how they relate to you, or if you made a scenario in your head explaining what it is and how it's relevant. I'd love to know what it does, it looks like it has a reason for being and doing.

Apart form that, I think it's a great piece. the small, awestruck figure in the midground, gazing up at the colossal mechanic behemoth in the background wordlessly working it's way past, shaking the earth the every footfall. I love how you used the moon (It's a moon, right?) to illuminate the whole scene, and adding tiny cyan blue (I think cyan is a blue color, but I'm not the artist here) running lights to the characters just pulls at the imagination to extrapolate with depth and description.

Love your work, keep it up man!

You're right, this is related to the "machines" series, it was more like a practice piece or a first take on this big spider-robot. I will have to redesign it later or something, because that's not how i envisioned it at first, but also wanted to share this image.
Lately i only had time to work and rarely do any personal stuff (which i also try to keep hidden if it's part of a bigger project until i actually decide what to do with the project itself), so i'm uploading whatever is at hand and it's mostly speedpaints or sketches or other unused stuff :P
