    Howdy, kids. It's been... Gawd... ages since I posted anything in here. It's also been ages since I had anything TO post, but so goes the universe. I like robots, you like robots, and so here's a robot I slapped together over the past few days. I have no idea why a robot angel with video wings would have a migraine headache, but that seems to be the case here. And if anyone asks, just tell 'em he transforms into... er... the Baby Jesus. For Christmas. Yeah, that's the ticket.

    Looks kind of like a cross between a Patlabor, Eva, and Gundam.

    Pretty nifty dude.

    Cool. Those sneakers kinda remind me of Virtual On and Temjin since he's had crazy mech shoes over the years.

    Excellent Job!

    Thanks for the kind words. The wings and the sneakers, I think, are my favorite bits.

    Logistically, it makes more sense to me for a metal and/or plastic robot to have rubber treads on its feet, and aesthetically, I think sneakers give it a little something unique.

    The wings are compiled from a single scan of a feather, resized and layered about a zillion times, then run through a similar number of filters to get that funky video-effect look.

    Oddly, they were simple to do when compared to that goddamned halo. That thing took probably twice as long as the wings, because when you layer translucent blue over red, you get black and/or grey. I'm still not entirely sure what combination of filters and layer effects made it work, and I'll never be able to replicate it, but so it goes.
