Mosaic Monday/ Robot Dog

"Bingo was his name-o" 
Work in progress © rebecca collins


This is the project I have been working on over the weekend.  There are tons of digital collage layers on this. I have 2 sheets of sheet glass under this top mosaic layer that have paint and paper collage elements.  The story is simple, a robot is walking his robot dog, while the dog dreams of being free riding on a rocket ( see collage element at top). The dog is a bit frumpy and I cut his little rubber wheel to give it a used and worn look. I also enjoyed making the walker's posture look as though he is being pulled by the robot dog.  I am hoping that the multiple layers will add depth and not get lost once I grout.  The yellow moon surface at bottom had a lot more detail before I started cutting and gluing the final layer. I chose to frost some of that glass though with acid etch cream. I was hoping that if it was mat the main characters would pop out more and they would be more grounded. The overall design is very busy.
