There is so much emotion in this picture. Are robots allowed to have such feelings? A really well executed image here. You should keep an eye on this artist!!! ( Featured by TobiasRoetsch )

this is a masterpiece. it is fascinating how there is a story in each pixel. the scratches, the crayon work on the metal, the pendant, so many details, none of them gratuitous. superbly outstanding work. thank you for sharing.

Hola Sergio. La verdad es que tienes mucho talento megusta todo lo que esta aqui en esta pintura y el mensaje. Eres unos de los mejores artistas aqui en DeviantArt o tal vez el mojor. Finalmente subi mi primer dibujo y voy a seguir dibujando digital/tradicional hasta que no respire y ya estoy dibujando algunos projectos en digital. Gracias por la inspiracion amigo! ;)

Robot can't died but humans? The girl seems to survive the human's war and the robot, (also survive) beside protecting her was his companion. The girl is no longer moving and he's waiting for eternity for eyes to open and hug him until his blue eyes shut off while he was asking his best friend ...W-a-k-e...u-p...

Very emotional moment.

This is lovely...... But, the girl is just resting right? This image is so sad looking, I'm like "Ohgod, is she dead?"
EragonJediGirl357 Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2011
Wow, this is amazing. The robot's concern for the little girl is really clear. It really makes me wonder about both of them, and their stories.

It's taken me an age to find this picture again after nearly a year, (or there abouts) since I first stumbled upon it. I was 'Fav' hopping from one artists to the next, finding an artist I liked and hopping onto a picture they had favved. I must have seen this picture for perhaps 30 seconds, and then skipped it to something else. Now at first glance that sounds like one hell of a huge insult, but I ask a moment of your time before you fell the hammer upon me. Because for a year, or there abouts, this one image has been on my mind. The idea of it, the look and texture, the amount of story that is crammed into this piece of art work is amazing! What happened! How did the robot and the girl fall into each others company? Was he her protector? Or is the machine merely awaiting an owner who will now never wake? I'll be honest and say I love the childish scrawling doodled across the robot which makes me see them in a protector/charge relationship. Well a year in the waiting, but still I have to say: Great work! Keep it up!

zacky Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
That's absolutely stunning. It captures a post-apoc, post-war feel. The emotion is almost palatable, even though there's no visible expression on the android/robot. Amazing job! I love it.
