We'll fly kites tomorrow, promise. by ChasingArtwork We'll fly kites tomorrow, promise. by ChasingArtwork
The bots name is "Tonk" and the girl is "Cassie" and they had planned on spending the day flying kites... :*(

been wanting to tackle this piece for a long time, it was just one of those ideas that just won't get out of your head until you've got it on paper.

I have a whole story about the pair I would love to publish someday :)

• Adobe illustrator cs4
• pen tool, gradients, pathfinder,
• paper texture overlay

EDIT: I'm overwhelmed by the positive response on this piece, very glad you cats like my personal pieces as much as the fanart :)
If you would like to hear where some of the inspiration for the piece came from, check this out:
first, play this on a lower volume: www.youtube.com/watch?v=1pSyYh…
then play this song at the same time: www.youtube.com/watch?v=VnL3Nf…

Looks like I'm not the only one who has always wanted to do a story with a giant robot looking after a little girl!

It reminds me of the iron giant. Possibly was one of my favorite films. EVER. The feeling is soft and gentle despite that Tonk is metal and plastics. Very lovely.

I agree with Lazorman8 and I think he could shield cassie from the rain with himself but that wouldn't be as cute or adorable Xp

I can relate to having ideas that won't leave you alone til you've got em out in some medium or other.
My literary piece, Eldarin's Horn Of The Tides, is one of those for me.
