Even tiny robots can be "artists". There's no story behind this one, besides me being in a weird mood the past couple days. Made with Gimp, Inkscape, and a little actual paint.
Comments are welcome, and thanks for checkin' it out.
Holy carps! I made Daily Deviation, thanks everyone! This made my day!

- How I did it (because ScHnOo asked) -
The little bot was originally sketched in pencil to get the general concept down, then scanned into the computer using my dumpy HP scanner. The process of inking and coloring the bot was performed in inkscape.
The cement-like floor and wall were made in The Gimp using noise, plasma, color adjustments, and emboss filters. I made it at a high resolution (2400x1800 or so) so it could be scaled down as well as perspective-distorted for the floor without incurring too much crapification in the process.
Paint splatters were achieved by going into my back room and dripping some 3 year old black tempera paint onto 8.5x11" sheets of printer paper and then blowing on them to produce directional splatters. The splattery papers were then scanned using the same dumpy printer, then raised their contrast in gimp. Imported the splats into inkscape, ran bitmap traces to convert them to vector shapes easily, then I placed them where I wanted and adjusted their colors to ugly lime green and pinkish.
The final steps were adding the seams in the walls using inkscape, and that's it!
Thanks again for all the
s and the comments, you've made my day!
