Re: The Three New Laws

A new set of laws for robots to save the world.

Here's what it might look like with the metallic silver ink. I used the 'solid gelt' metallic sample from the pre-derby thread:

Re: Robo Hero



6 colors, which includes metallic.
Metallic silver for the inner blade.

-------------------------------------

When one looks back upon the Age of Robots, one is drawn to reflect upon one of the last entries in the Eschelon Nine data archives, still yet active in the Flux of Time Museum. The passage follows:

Robo-2814-xG: What do the official annuals say the inscriptions on the sword signify?

Robo-3841-xM: Ah, many have speculated upon the inscription. Many prominent scholars of the digi-plains of Korvel believe it to be the archaic runework of the Invisible Folk, a speechless race that spelled the earth before even the time of Man and his great cities. Others claim it to be the elemental language of Metal, imbibing the blade with a supernatural edge and strength. The latter theory surrounds the intilibots of Skyfell with suspicion, suggesting that they themselves forged the blade, plotting the downfall of our timeless robot civiliation. I, myself, believe the contrary. I believe the blade to be divine, gifted to the wielder, Domo Ari Gato Mr. Roboto, the Savior and Protector of us all, who even now repels the alien hordes. But here I've rambled on again. To address your query, as to what it says... I'm sorry, 3841-xM, but no-one knows. Do you have data? *BeeP*

Robo-2814-xG: 3841-xM, I have cross referenced the inscription with a new finding from the ruins of Xowoot. I am certain it reads something along the lines of, "Flesh or steel, may the vessel that holds this metal always have heart." It is a very efficient language, that of the Invisible Folk.

Robo-3841-xM: I will herald this important data to the Halls of Eschelon Nine. Your service to the core is *BeeP* honorable.

Robo-2814-xG: I currently serve in Sector 2814. Contact if my service is required.

Re: So stubborn



People are very stubborn, instead of trying use and develop clean sources of power, they created a fleet of pollution capturing robots to save our planet.

A few detailed shots.

Re: Out of Harm’s Way



You say "Robots saving the world!", I can't help it-- I immediately think of saving innocent cityscapes from rampaging mutant critters.

Would love any and all critiques-- I have so much to learn about design!

Re: Virus vs. The Machine



B.E.V.E. (Biological, electronic virus eliminator) has a huge responsibility on his metallic shoulders. His job description is to get rid of every single disease-causing virus in the world. Sounds like an impossible task. Not so for B.E.V.E. With his organic drug, he fuels his bug-eradicator gun (and his own system) and earnestly gets down to work. Did I mention that the drug is renewable? It is made from all the exterminated bugs at the end of a hard day’s work!

Re: United Robotic Nations



In society's darkest hour, we must rely on the United Robotic Nations to assemble for diplomatic, round table discussion to adress key concerns plaguing the world such as the responsible use and management of non renewable resources. and the economy. and war and stuff. They are our only hope

Re: Atlus and Leto: The New Titans




In Greek mythology Atlas held up the Heavens and Leto birthed Apollo, god of the sun. In my version it works similarly, only Leto has a Plasma gun that is as hot as the sun...same thing right? Invaders beware, two towering Titans guard this Earth.

A giant robot on a metal unicorn with a flaming sword. You fool! Don't you know how close this is to critical mass of true win?

Wow.

Nice job! Metal is a tricky surface to capture, especially with only 6 colors. Fantastic composition.

Re: Alien Vs Robot



Alien invasion sized thanks to the pre-derby board folks who helped me refine this design, especially Paige for the robust encouragement, and Meg for the very specific tweaks. You all rock.

And, yeah, the photos are all mine. I snapped a bunch of reference photos in Memphis one time, and I used components of them for the city you see here. So if Memphis ever gets invaded and a giant robot tries to save the day, I called it.

Re: Veteran of the Robot Cockroach War



Homeless Vet of the Great Man vs Cockroach war. Paris fell on day 2. Detroit, the motherland of the roach forces, had been able to ship out most of its resources to Seatle before it was overwhelmed on day 6. In the 18th year of the war, the state of Microsoftopia released its first robot sentries. By destroying Taco Bells, they were able to drive back the onslaught until the I-Robots were finally out of their beta stage. Although slower and frustrating to deal with, (Many Radio Shacks were destroyed due to their autocorrect feature) these robots looked sleek in their black turtleneck uniforms. Combining forces with the Microsoftopian robots and the remaining humans, the last of the cockroaches were forced into signing a treaty, which designated Quebec as their home land.

This is pretty cool but I don't really see the "saving the world" part... Maybe you could at least add the earth in the background?
